This is a fantastic mod - thanks very much.

I gather that you can restrict the ability to view post history to just admins rather than admins and moderators, but I can't see how to change this. Apologies if this is obvious to others - I'm only just getting used to phpBB3.

Thanks.

Aah - I've got it. It's in /includes/prime_post_revisions.php - beautifully clear. Thanks. 8-)

I've changed
define('APPROVE_REMOVAL_MODERATOR', true); // Can moderators (with the ability to delete posts) remove revisions?
in /includes/prime_post_revisions.php to
define('APPROVE_REMOVAL_MODERATOR', false); // Can moderators (with the ability to delete posts) remove revisions?
but my global moderator can still view post history.

Is there something else I need to do? :?

As the comment next to that define indicates, changing it will only affect whether or not moderators have the ability to delete the post history. It has no effect on whether they can see it or not. The way it is currently set up, moderators that can view the post's information can also view the history.

Can I prevent moderators from seeing the post history?

You would need to change this line to something else:

Code: Select all

            if (($this->approve_viewing = $auth->acl_get('m_info', $forum_id)) || APPROVE_VIEWING_POSTER)

Brilliant - that seems to have sorted it.

For anyone else wanting to do the same thing, I changed

Code: Select all

if (($this->approve_viewing = $auth->acl_get('m_info', $forum_id)) || APPROVE_VIEWING_POSTER) 

in /includes/prime_post_revisions.php to

Code: Select all

if (($this->approve_viewing = $auth->acl_get('a_')) || APPROVE_VIEWING_POSTER)

Hi Ken,

I think this setting doesn't work as it should:

Code: Select all

define('SUBJECT_CHANGE_REVISION', false);		// Store a revision when only the subject has been changed?
I changed only the title of an old topic a few minutes ago and the revision has been stored. (Or has something else also changed automatically and I didn't notice it? The board is upgraded from phpBB 2.0.23.)

Regards
Wolfgang

Hi Ken,

thank you! It's much better now but unfortunately still not perfect.

Example: I changed the title of an old topic and no revision has been stored. A minute later I changed the title back to the original one and this time the revision has been stored. Both times I just changed the topic's title.

Regards
Wolfgang

Not for me. I don't have the time to write that kind of algorithm.

Hey primehalo (and everybody else)

We have used this mod for the past month or so and it works great. But i was wondering if you could have a button besides the Edit button that only showed if the post had a history to read. Just like the text link now, but without the text in front of it and as a image. The move should be to hard.

I don't think I would do that personally, as I hate having to create images for each separate style. But it shouldn't be too hard to implement if you want to attempt it yourself.
