File Name: [XPD] Closing Reason as Post

File Submitter: Pete T

File Submitted: 06 Sep 2012

File Category: IP.Board Modifications


This hook will show a new input field when your moderators want to close a topic. In this field, they can write down why they closed it, and that will be posted as a post in the closed topic.


Step 1: Upload the application files


Upload the files in the "upload" folder. Remember to keep the structure intact!


Step 2: Install the Application


Log in to your IP.Board Admin CP and visit the System tab -> Applications & Modules -> Manage Hooks page. In the 'Install a New Hook' section, browse to the XML file included with these instructions and click Open. Once it installs this hook, be sure to enable it!


Step 3: ACP Setup


Still inside the Admin CP, visit the System tab -> Tools & Settings -> System Settings page, and click on the Hooks tab. There will be a section here entitled Closing Reason as Post. Click on this to adjust the settings for this hook, then click the Update Settings button.


Compatibility: IP.Board 3.1, IP.Board 3.2 & IP.Board 3.3


Original Developer : Martin Aronsen

It seems like it does not work for 3.4.X, but it hasn't specifically been updated for 3.4.X either. 



I know that Pete has been inactive from IPB for a little while. I am wondering if he has any intention of updating this. Or possibly making a new version of it? It would be nice if this could be extended so that moderators give a reason when they move a topic as well. But that might be kind of a pain if they have to mass move topics.
