  • Does VBulletin suggest other threads to view before posting

    I have seen sites that provide suggestions of other posts to view for answers before you confirm your post. Does VBulletin do this?

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code.

      Similar Threads appears after you create a thread. Never really understood why to be honest.

        On vBulletin.org, I saw at least 2 mods for 3.8.x that did that last year. I'm sure something for 4.x is available by now, as that was a pretty popular idea.

        It would show you a box above the editor recommending that the user consider similar threads before posting.

        Edit: Hmm, I can only find one of them, and it hasn't been updated. (It's actually been graveyard-ed.)

        I think the other mod may have had similar-threads-before-posting as an option in a bigger mod. I'll take another look.

        It's definitely a feature that should be incorporated into the core product at some point.
