vb 3.8 version here

This mod join consecutive posts of the same member to single one. That prevents nasty "bumps".

That's a complete rewrite of "Double Post Prevention Plus", that was announced here. Besides some new features, merge algorythm changed too. It doesn't creates dummy posts anymore. Code is reuseable at last.

Well, what this mod do:
  • The main - it merge consecuent posts of the same user to single one
  • Yes, it cares about attachments
  • Yes, it cares about AJAX posting
  • Yes, it cares about social groups, if you wish
  • It can add splitter with RELATIVE time. Users from different time zones will not be confused
  • Relative time can be translated via addon for languages with complex semantics (russian translation included).
It just works

How to install:
  1. Upload files from appropriate directory
  2. Import product XML
  3. If you use russian language - import translation addon from "./lang" dir. You should not do it for other languages.
  4. Go to ACP ant set necessary product options (see screenshot).
  5. Check ACP -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Time to Wait Before Starting to Display 'Last Edited by...' . Set it to 10-15 minutes. Before that time delimitor will not be added, as useless.
If you used my "Doublepost Prevention Plus" mod before, please, remember settings and uninstall it first.

This mod is developped here . Patches are welcome.


- fixed post date - now stays intact.
- some ajax tweeks

- fixed VaultWiki compatibility

- port to vb4

I'm having the same problem as Deib

Okay so I am having this problem and it only seems to happen to me. Where the merged posts prints the same data twice.
So if I say,
Hi, how are you.

The merged post will show as

Hi, how are you.

Hi, how are you.

It only seems to happen to me the admin and not any of the other users on the board.
What is up with that? LOL

Any fix for this yet? Does this work properly for vB 4.1.7?

If anyone is looking for an alternative that is only compatible with vBulletin 4.1.4 onwards and does the exact same thing see this thread:

Best to try this one out, as it is better supported, there are a few bugs but on the whole it works fine.

Hi ...

Installed it on 4.1.12...

Kinda worsks

Posts just accumulate ....each new one has same index ....and accumulated content...
after checking DB - there is just one record - so does works...(after refreshing the page - there is just 1 post)

I guess while user still on the page that ajax thingy simply adds parts to the existing page...without refreshing it... -

Any chance you could fix that for 4.1.12 ? or is there quick work around without diving into deep...
