  • Editing Thread Title, Field should be disabled when past time limit

    On my 3.8 forum I have at time limit set for how long a user can edit their thread's title.

    Once the time limit has expired, the user still sees and can input a different value for the thread title, only the value is not persisted to the DB. So technically it works, however usability wise it sucks because the user still thinks they can edit the title and become very confused when it never changes.

    Has anyone else experienced this and if so is there a solution?

    To troubleshoot this, first download a fresh copy of the vBulletin ZIP file from the Members Area then reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

    [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

    Next, disable all plugins.Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php:

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

    Do you have the same problem?

      Thanks for the response Trevor. Before I go and try the things stated above I want to make sure the behavior I'm seeing is a bug and not just an oversight in Vbulletin code. If the timeout for thread title editing has been reached, should the box be disabled? Hidden?

        I can't recreate the issue on a test site so something on your site must be causing this.
