Report Thread Prefix Management (vB3) 1.6

No permission to download
Overview:

This product allows you and your moderating staff to more easily distinguish between report threads that have not yet been resolved from those that have been taken care of by using colored prefixes for the report threads.

Upon installation, a new prefixset is created consisting of two thread prefixes...one for unresolved report threads (bright red) and one for resolved report threads (darker green with strikeout text). These prefixes will only be available in the forum you have designated for report threads, and in the forum you have designated for auto-reported posts if you have "MarkFL: Automated Post Reporter" installed and active (I have not ported this yet to vB 3.8.x, but have plans to do so). If you uninstall the product, then the prefixset is removed from your database.

When a post is initially reported, the unresolved prefix is auto-added to the report thread. Then when someone on your staff (those with access to the report threads) posts to say what they have done to resolve the issue, they will find a checkbox in the "Thread Management" portion of the "Additional Options" block on the posting form for actions to be taken after submitting their message that will allow them to mark the report as resolved.

If using the "Quick Reply" form, then they will find a checkbox to mark the report as resolved in the "Options" beneath the editor.

If a report thread has been previously marked as resolved, but another staff member is posting to add additional information and wishes to revert the thread back to an unresolved status, they will find that the added checkbox will mark the thread as unresolved.

In addition, a report thread may be marked as resolved/unresolved without posting by using the "Thread Tools" dropdown menu, which has had a new section call "Report Tools" added.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on vB 3.8.9 and may work on earlier 3.x versions of vBulletin.

Backup/Warning:

This product does alter your database to add new rows to existing tables, however it is always good practice to keep regular backups and you should backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will try to help if I can but no guarantee is offered or implied.
