Enhanced View Forum Posts (search results) 2.3

No permission to download

This product will enhance the functionality of the search results when viewing the posts of a particular user. The entire post content is returned rather than a truncated summary. More complete information is provided about each post, including links to the forum, thread, thread author and post author. Initially only the first line of each post is shown, but if more than one line is available, the user may click a button above and to the right of the post to show the entire post (which will appear or disappear as needed if the browser window is resized), and all posts on the page may be expanded/collapsed via a button in the block header. Each individual post is contained in its own block to make it easier to distinguish what data pertains to each post.

You may wish to hide the content of certain BBCodes from guests, and/or you may wish to hide spoiler content from everyone. There are options in the AdminCP settings for this product to define the BBCode content to hide from guests and the name(s) of your spoiler tags so their content will be hidden. In both cases, the content is replaced by a message in red explaining why the content is hidden when applicable. The message in red is a link to the registration page.



Version 1.1:

  • Added the option to display unparsed post pagetext, parsed post messages or both.
  • Individual posts are expanded/collapsed via a button so that users can interact with the elements in the parsed posts.
  • If you decide to hide the URL BBCode from guests, only external links will be hidden...links within your domain will not be hidden.
  • Completely compatible with LaTeX powered by Mathjax.

Version 1.2:

  • Now integrated with "Hide BBCodes/Signatures From Guests" with regards to merging defined BBCode tag lists to hide.

Version 1.3:

  • The complete post is retrieved from the database rather than requiring you to hack a core PHP file. 🆙
