  • forum capabilities

    qan or someone else that knows:

    are there any capabilities on this forum that we arent taking advantage of? specifically since mafia is popular once again, is there a way to once again see how many times each person has posted in that specific thread? is there a thread overview button or link that can be turned on that would give a person by person post count of their posts in that thread as well as when last posted and stuff? also, is there a way to isolate a single person or a couple peoples posts in that single thread only? these sorts of things are hugely beneficial. is it a matter of those options not being turned on or are they just not available? once upon a time we used to have something that had some of these capabilities, but its been a while.

    image_1755.jpg So I've got a workaround for the post count thing, though it's not convenient. If you subscribe to a thread (like the last mafia game) and then go to anyone's profile, you can view posts filtered by user. Filter only subscribed threads, and it will link you all of their posts, and give a count

          I took a look in the backend, did some searching on the Googles, and didn't see any way to do this. Unfortunately some features have actually been removed from vBulletin 5, probably to make it more modular. There are some cool things you can do with it, but it does require some futzing. Are these the features you were talking about? https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...d-display-mode

          WillBy's solution can do the job. You can speed it up slightly if using across multiple users, though. After you subscribe to the thread, go to the search box at the top of any page, click the down arrow, click Advanced, and then type the name you're searching for and check the option to search subscribed threads only. You should be able to ctrl+click to open a new tab for the search while leaving the search box as it is. Then type in the next username you wish to check ... rinse and repeat.

                  i wouldnt be surprised if vB forced an upgrade due to dropping support for older versions,

                  might be able to get by with not upgrading if one was extra careful, but vbulletin is basically a giant glowing neon sign that reads HACKERS WELCOME HERE!!! and so maintaining a current version is the only way to really minimize the risk

                    Basically that, yeah. It was breached many many times. There was also a hope that it might work better overall. In some ways it does, but not in others.
