Visual Warnings on Posts
« on: March 07, 2013, 08:08:21 PM »
I understand that SMF isn't suppose to be a free version of XenForo, but I really like their visual warnings on posts. Here's an example:



I searched for something similar in the mods section, but the two mods I found were extremely outdated.

Would require a surprisingly substantial overhaul of the warning system in SMF to make that happen, for the simple reason that while you can issue warnings to a given % and limit user privileges through it, warnings are not internally tied to posts; even if you issue a warning for a post, there is no record of it.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

We use the admin and moderator comment mod... It puts a colored box marked moderators note into a post.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Good point.

That looks like the closest thing available. Thanks.

Ah, Moderator and Administrator Comment Tags, it's been a while. Just remember to get the moderator to post it in their own posts, and not edit another user's posts because even though I explained it when I originally wrote it, a lot of people seemed to think it should have prevented the user editing their own posts...
