Post in thread when user changes name?

Looking for pretty much this plugin:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...e+notification

but for when a users name is changed. My forum sees peoples names changed regularly and would be ideal if could have "oldname changed to newname" - feel like i've seen this really recently posted on/in here but can't track it down


any help would be great!

Thank you blind-eddie but this is not what I mean. I'm not looking for a feature where users can request a name change, more so when there name has been changed it creates a post within a thread notifying of a changed name.

Are you using a product that allows users to change their own username, or are you looking for a product that creates a post when an admin has changed a user's name?

If it's the former, then you will need to request this as an added feature in that product's thread, but if it's the latter I can put something together for you.

I went ahead and put together a simple product, which I have attached, and which works in vB 3.8.9 and vB 4.2.x.

There are settings for:
  • Enabling/Disabling Product (you must initially enable the product)
  • Selecting Destination Forum For Changelog Thread (If none is chosen, then the forum used for reported posts will be used)
  • Thread Title
  • Report Format

The first time a username is changed, a new thread is created, and then after that new posts are added to this thread for each username change.

Please let me know of any issues and/or if you want any additional features.

Mark, thank you so much this is exactly what i'm after. Is it possible to make a post in one thread rather than keep making different threads for every user? If not, i appreciate all your help nonetheless.

Did you set a destination forum? If not, do you have a forum selected for reported posts?

I would be glad to come to your site to troubleshoot...if you agree, set up a temporary admin account and PM the login credentials to me and I will take a look and see if I can resolve the issue.

Okay...I will be glad to try to get to the bottom of this by relaying information to you by PM, then you take the steps I give, and report back the results. It is likely something easy to fix, I just need to figure out why the destination forumid is blank.
