Hi guys

I just wrote a hack/modification for Fireboard to close user editability of a Post after n seconds... This gives us the ability to allow users edit their posts for a certain time and not loosing content after some writer gets evil... Simply leading to higher quality in discussions.

http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/fireboard/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=5321

Hope some of you guys support that this extension is the right way. Since it is implemented completely optional (when set to 0sec the window is unterminated).

Keep having fun!

Hi Mirco,
that is a good idea. I know this function from SMF-Forum and I really missed this in Fireboard. Keep going with your good ideas to improve Fireboard.

Cu, Jan.

Hey viet!

It doesn\'t changes anything within code..
Just some lineNUMBERS change (to be found for a modifier without problems, not?

This morning i merged into 1.0.2 and didn\'t need to change anything at that part of code!

I hoped this will be included soon in release... :-)

PS: My contributed modifications can be seen on:

[quote][b]ADD the fields to the default configuration![/b]
$fbConfig[\'usereditTime\']=\'0\';
$fbConfig[\'usereditTimeGrace\']=\'600\';

And for sure the needed english.php
DEFINE(\'_COM_A_USER_EDIT_TIME\', \'User Edit Time\');
DEFINE(\'_COM_A_USER_EDIT_TIME_DESC\', \'Set to 0 for unlimited time, else window
in seconds from post or last modification to allow edit.\');
DEFINE(\'_COM_A_USER_EDIT_TIMEGRACE\', \'User Edit Grace Time\');
DEFINE(\'_COM_A_USER_EDIT_TIMEGRACE_DESC\', \'Default 600 [seconds], allows
storing a modification up to 600 seconds after edit link disappears\');
[/quote]

The default configuration is:
/administrator/components/com_fireboard/fireboard_config.php
where all global fb configurations are stored.

The language file is:
/administrator/components/com_fireboard/language/english.php
where all language constants are stored.

I wonder if it can also be done regarding deleting posts. Allow all your members to delete their posts, but have the administrator set how long before the function is disabled for the posts.

Then, if the administrator doesn\'t actually want users to be able to delete their posts at all, just set the limit to 0 or 1 seconds.
