This is Staff Tracker 1.0.0 for vB4 by GeekyDesigns!

What this addon does it fairly simple. In vBulletin Options -> Staff Tracker, there are two important settings. You choose the groups you want to be tracked as "staff" (by default, the default administrator and super moderator groups) as well as choose whether or not those with can_moderate permissions in the forum the post is in are tracked as well. After you have set those to your liking and saved them, use the link below the settings to build the data for current posts, and check out the results!
  • On the thread list in forumdisplay, there will be a new icon if any of the staff members defined by the setting above have posted in the thread. The icon will link to the first staff post in that thread.
  • In the showthread, there will be an icon at the top if a staff member has posted in the thread linking to the first staff post.
  • In the postbit, there will be a new icon on staff posts linking directly to the next staff post in the thread. If it is the last staff post in the thread, it'll have a different icon to signify that it is the last staff post.

See the screenshots to see this product in action.

Installation instructions:
Upload the included images and import the XML. Modify the settings (admincp/options.php?dogroup=gd_stafftracker) and then use the "Rebuild Staff Posts" link to build the initial data from the current posts.
Known Issues:
  • It is sorted by postid, not by the actual dateline of the post. This can cause confusion when a post is copied and merged into a thread containing posts that are newer by date but older by postid. I'll be working to fix this, but I feel it is minor enough and too complex to fix, so I feel it is safe to make the first release.

I don't think I've forgotten anything for this first post, so let's roll to the credits.

I like the concept of this but I only have 2 staff at the moment so can track them easily.

Witch line in the global.php script shall I change dogroup= to dogroup=gd_stafftracker?

I can find $vbulletin->GPC['dogroup'] = '[all]'; is this the right one?

Or wich line in the script shall I look for?

I get this error msg:
Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3780

Regards from Sebaldus

As for your first question, there are no file edits to do. The readme references "admincp/options.php?dogroup=gd_stafftracker", which is a partial URL to the settings in the Admin CP, not a file edit instruction.

As for your fetch_template warning, this addon does not have any incorrect fetch_template calls. Make sure another addon is not causing it.

I.m so sorry for I wrote the error messige in wrong Hooks /Addons.

The error messige comes from this addons: Staff Tracker
and it's not only me who have that problems.

Your Hooks work PERFECT:

Thank's a LOT..

And again sorry for making this mistake..

All the Best from Sebaldus.

Go to Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters and run "Remove Orphan Posts". I thought I fixed that error, but I guess not.
