Cross-posting protection

Recommended Posts

One user can create one topic in different sections (cross-posting).

I used to make a module for 3. x, which compares the new user's message with the previous ones (the algorithm of fuzzy duplicates) and this 100% protected against cross-posting.

Why hasn't IPB made this option yet?

We have not added such a feature because it does not really come up as a common problem. I would say this is a moderation task more than a software issue to solve.

Each forum has its own specifics. This is not an uncommon problem on my forum. Ok, I will make a plugin for this myself. 🧒
