This hook will give to users from specific user groups the ability to put topics under special surveillance, by adding a badge (risk of closure) and message in specific places to users get advised that won't be tolerated flaming/discussions on those topics.
Administrators and moderators will have access to a new area on My Settings (User Control Panel) to get a list of all topics under special surveillance.

Badge RISK OF CLOSURE will appear on:

  • Forum view
  • Topic view
  • Search results (View New Content, User Content and Regular Search)

Message will appear:
  • Above fast reply on every topic that is under special surveillance
  • Post screen (full form) of topics that is under special surveillance

  • Groups to mark/unmark a topic under special surveillance
  • Forums where the hook will work
  • Message (editor)

  • IP.Board 3.4.X
  • IP.Board 3.3.X

Having issues in this plugin.. just upgraded to IPB 3.4.4. Have you tested on new version of IPB?

Well, making some tests noticed this error on forum view:

This happens on 3.4.4 'cause IPS changed the way topic title is printed:

Before 3.4.4:

<span itemprop="name">{$data['title']}</span>

On 3.4.4:

<span itemprop="name">{parse expression="IPSText::truncate( $data['title'], 130 )"}</span>

Which broke the hook.

The consequence of this is that I had to remove from forum view the black balloon (data-tooltip) with information about who put the topic under surveillance.

What's New in Version 1.1.1:

  • Fixed the RISK OF CLOSURE badge on forum view, ONLY FOR THOSE WHO USES IP.BOARD 3.4.4+
