Thread Prefixes v1.6.1

Thread Prefixes

File-edits: 5
Template-edits: 10

Brief Description of the Modification

This modification allows your users to choose a thread prefix for each thread. To do this you are able to select an appropriate prefix from a list beside the title while posting a new thread - for example 'Help', 'Problem', 'Search' etc.

This prefix will be displayed in front of the thread title. The result will be for example:
Problem - I can't find this setting

Problem is the thread prefix, I can't find this setting is the title of the thread.

The prefixes displayed in this list may be defined by a moderator for each of his moderated forums (Forum Tools -> Manage Thread Prefixes); of course an administrator and a super moderator is allowed to do this for every forum.


Features


* Moderators are able to create own prefixes for each of their moderated forums.
(Forum -> Forum Tools -> Manage Thread Prefixes -> threadprefix.php)
* Display of the prefixes on forum display, search results, subscribed threads and within the thread itself.
* It is possible to change the prefix with editing the first post of a thread or with the thread tools available for moderators at any time.

Settings in Admin CP

* Maximum prefixes per forum
* Thread Prefix required: Users have to select a thread prefix for their threads. You can select this globally for all forums or on a per forum basis.
* Default Thread Prefixes: You may set default prefixes which will either be shown only in forums without own prefixes or be shown in addition to existing prefixes
* Show Thread Prefixes in extra column or in front of the thread title in the same column
* Alignment of the prefixes (if 'Show in extra column' is enabled): Align left, align right, center
* Show Prefix in 'Last Post' column
* Prefix HTML Markup: Specify an HTML tag with which to display the prefixes (bold, italic, red etc.)
* Allow Thread Prefix search: If enabled, the prefixes of all forums the user has access to will be grouped in a list and displayed in the search engine.
* Per Forum:
o Allow Thread Prefixes in this Forum
o Thread Prefix Required in this Forum.

Installation

1. Upload all files from the upload directory to your vBulletin directory on your server.

Overview of the files and corresponding directories:
* /threadprefix.php
* /admincp/prefixinstall.php
* /admincp/prefixinstall_text.php
* /includes/functions_threadprefix.php
2. Import the file "product-threadprefix_english.xml" with 'Manage Products':
Admin Control Panel -> Plugin System -> Manage Products ->
[Add/Import Product] -> Select file -> Import
3. Open this file with your browser:
http://www.yourdomain.com/forum/admi...fixinstall.php
4. Log in as administrator and follow the instructions

Time needed for installation: approx. 30 min.
Tested for version: 3.5.0 (and above).

Note: If you have used the Thread Category / Prefix Hack in vBulletin 3.0.x, don't worry: all existing prefixes will be imported during the installation. You just have to re-do your thread prefix settings in your vBulletin Options.

Update Product

1. Upload all files from the upload directory to your vBulletin directory on your server.

Overview of the files and corresponding directories:
* /threadprefix.php
* /admincp/prefixinstall.php
* /admincp/prefixinstall_text.php
* /includes/functions_threadprefix.php
2. Import the file "product-threadprefix_english.xml" with 'Manage Products':
Admin Control Panel -> Plugin System -> Manage Products ->
[Add/Import Product] -> Select file -> Import

You have to select 'Allow Overwrite' -> 'Yes' before clicking on Import!
3. Open this file with your browser:
http://www.yourdomain.com/forum/admi...fixinstall.php
4. Log in, select the version you want to update from (at Step 2 -> 'Update Modification') and follow the instructions.

Short overview of the needed modifications

1. Files that need to be edited:

* /showthread.php (Display prefix in 'Similar Threads')
* /clientscript/vbulletin_textedit.js (JavaScript error message if no prefix was selected)
* /includes/class_dm_threadpost.php (Prefix within emails to moderators)
* /includes/functions_databuild.php (Update prefix in column 'Last Post' for mod functions)
* /includes/functions_online.php (Display prefix in 'Who's online')

It is your decision if you need the above functions or if you decide do use the product without file modifications!
You don't have to do the file modifications as the product will work even though without them!

2. New files:

* /threadprefix.php
* /includes/functions_threadprefix.php

3. Templates that need to be edited:

* editpost
* FORUMDISPLAY
* newthread
* search_forums
* search_results
* SUBSCRIBE
* threadadmin_editthread
* threadbit
* threadbit_announcement
* threadbit_deleted

4. New templates:

* threadprefix_listbit
* threadprefix_modify

5. New phrases:

* Too many to list them all - they will be created automatically while importing the xml file

Final words

If the modification doesn't work correct after installation, please verify all modifications you have made within the files and the templates. Be sure you have uploaded all edited and new files.

The modification was tested extensive and will function properly if installed correct.

Thanks to ReadWrite for his french translation.

Special Thanks to Andreas for his help with the hooks.

Have fun with the modification!
