Allows changing the time limit for editing an individual post.
Most forums have a short time period where a post can be edited by the author. However there are situations when a longer edit time is needed. This add-on provides the admin or moderator the ability to quickly change the edit limit for any individual post.
(Example of Change limit link)
(Example of Change limit overlay)
(Example of Options page)
(Example of User group permissions)
- All phrases start with changelimit_ for your convenience.
- Download Andy-ChangeLimit-1.7.zip and unzip it.
- Copy the src/addons/Andy/ChangeLimit directory to your server.
- From the Admin Control Panel Install the add-on.
In order to see the Change Limit link below the post, you will need to set the User group permissions for the Administrative group to Yes.
How to use:
Click the Change limit link and edit the date and time. The post author will be able to edit the post until the date and time entered. When the date and time has expired, the post author will no longer see the Edit link under the post.
If there's already a change limit override, that date will be shown as a confirmation message.
To cancel a change limit override, submit the default date which is the post date, that will remove the change limit override.
This add-on creates a table called xf_andy_change_limit in your database.
