[MOD]Delayed edit lock for members
In admin panel /settings / forum enable Lock Edit: YES
(Prevent users from editing their posts)

The mod below allows a member to edit his post for 2 hours after his initial post.

forum/viewthread.php line 297 find

if (iMOD || ($lock_edit && $last_post['post_id'] == $data['post_id'] && $userdata['user_id'] == $data['post_author']) || (!$lock_edit && $userdata['user_id'] == $data['post_author'])) {

and replace with:

if (iMOD || ($lock_edit && $last_post['post_id'] == $data['post_id'] && $userdata['user_id'] == $data['post_author']) || (!$lock_edit && $userdata['user_id'] == $data['post_author']) || ($data['post_datestamp']+(2*60*60) > (time( )) == $data['post_id'] && $userdata['user_id'] == $data['post_author'])) {

2 hours = 2*60*60
3 hours = 3*60*60

I felt this was necessary on my sites because users edited their post and the thread became unreadable afterwards. This way a member can correct typo's, but ensures older post won't get altered or deleted.

I rather would have this as an option in the admin panel.

Lets hope this will be a heavy forum then. Wink

I thought lets get this forum started with a mod. It's rather empty.
Do we need more categories on this site?
Hmm... May be..... Actually, I am a Little Confused Confused and afraid about this Licensing of using stuff under AGPL... I didn't get the whole concept/statements given on the AGPL(and its a bit boring to read them too... Pfft) that what kind of Stuff can be hosted on this site ?

As it is unofficial right now, then is it ok/permitted to host the addons made by our self ? Is it ok to upload the addons n our site made by other users on official sites or MOD sites of fusion, as uploaded on this mod site : http://www.phpfusion-mods.net/ ?

Aah ! Too many queries.... Sad Thats Y a little bit scared of any unwanted action by the Officials .... Shock

BTW, you may know better than me about this... Wink
