Link to Mod

This mod allows an administrator to remove the last edit time from a post. It places a "remove this line" link next to the last edit time.

Thanks for the mod, it is a more practical approach for the feature than what I've seen so far. But I don't think I'm getting it to work, unfortunately. I'm on 1.1.4. No link is showing up. This applies to both previously-edited posts and also posts made after the installation of the mod through the SMF admin interface.

If your not using the default theme you need to copy/paste the code into your theme's Display.template.php file.

Find

if ($settings['show_modify'] && !empty($message['modified']['name']))
echo '
« <i>', $txt[211], ': ', $message['modified']['time'], ' ', $txt[525], ' ', $message['modified']['name'], '</i> »';


Add After

// Allow admin to remove last edit time
if($context['user']['is_admin'] && !empty($message['modified']['name']))
echo '
<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=removemodified;msg=', $message['id'], ';topic=', $context['current_topic'], '.', $context['start'], ';sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', $txt['remove_modified'], '</a>';

All the mod does is remove the last edit line of text from the bottom of a specific post. For that post it sets the values for modifiedName and modifiedTime to null and 0. It looks to the viewer like the post was never modified.

I have added the following line:

$txt['remove_modified'] = 'Post modification tag has been removed.';

I've also made the addition to Display.template.php in my theme. I still don't see a link next to the modified post tag.

Hi,

do you only have a Modifications.english.php?
If your theme has a language folder, copy the Modifications.english.php into it.

Please excuse my bad english! ;)

The "Remove this line" link will only show up if you are an administrator.

Hello there all,

I just installed this today and I don't have a link to do anything either.  I am running version 1.1.4, it is a fairly new installation, and I am using the default template.

What should I do to get this to work?  Suggestions or advice welcome.  Thanks!
Kind regards,
Mynd

Yes, rsw868, I am an admin. I've added the lines in Modifications.english-utf8.php and Display.template.php . Not functioning. Does anyone know what's going on?

ssnickerer

sorry - bump.

Can anyone offer anymore troubleshooting? :-\

You would have to apply the modifications from Display.template.php to the Global Announcements Display.template.php section. You would also need to copy/paste the database edit function in RemoveModified.php so that it updates the global announcements table.

Basically a rewrite for the global announcements mod. This would probably best be made as another mod to be installed after the Global Announcements and Remove Post Modified Time mods.
