As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This is an updated version of the popular modification, previously released by Xenon. It is released with his kind permission.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.


To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Phrased the post separater.
v3.8.003 : Added JS Template - removing need to edit quick reply javascript file.
v3.8.004 : Updated spacer options.
v3.8.005 : Updated timestamp spacer to fix issue with large merge times.

Are you sure you have the correct file (vbulletin_quick_reply.js, 3.8 version, uncompressed).

There is no way that can be missing

Dude, i just downloaded 3.8.1 from the vBulletin Member's Area, and the code is not there.
vBulletin gets downloaded with uncompressed js's by default, right?

Looks like i was wrong... vBulletin comes with compressed javascripts.
You got to manually select the "Package - Uncompressed JavaScript".

Sorry for the trouble Paul... geez i feel dumb...

I think i found the problem. The 3.8.0 quick reply has the code. I donwloaded that one, and it wasnt hard to find that code.


But when i download 3.8.1 and do the same thing, the code isn't there, i think there has been a code change in that script.

Just to be quite clear - the javascript file has not changed in ANY version of 3.8.x

Please READ the big red note, its there for a reason.

... you must have the uncompressed versions - obtaining these is an option when you download vbulletin, by default you get the compressed versions.

HI Paul,

This is a great mod and works well on my current board. The old one is working on my 3.8, np. With that said, I'd like to ask a hypothetical question:

If I install yours (and remove my old one), AND and in the future upgrade my forum, will the javascript file that needs the EDIT, be overwritten?

Yes. On any upgrade you would need to re-edit the JS file.

Just copy the content of vbulletin_quick_reply.js into http://elfz.laacz.lv/beautify/

Beautify it, change the file and upload it.
Does not work - the Code is still missing - searched more then one Time with Notepad++.

I still cant find the part of Script - i have tested it in compressed and uncompressed File.

vBulletin 3.8.1

And anyway why is the Fileedit needed? Xenon´s did not need any Fileedit. This seems to be too much work after every vBulletin Update for this Mod. Never seen a Mod which is using the uncompressed Files before.

Will use Xenon´s till there is a Update without any Fileedit needed.

TBH, I give up. It works fine (as seen on this site, and my forum).

Im already sick of repeating that the code is there. FYI, the file edit is to make ajax merge work properly, I really dont care if you havent seen one that edits JS files before. This does, simple as that. This is the only update you will see so you will have a long wait for any other.
