This mod provides options for administrators to manage users who 'bump' their posts - by replying to themselves to get attention. Most notably this could be used in a support type forum where a 24 hour 'no bumping' rule exists, and used to actually enforce the rule.

Administrators can configure the following behaviours:
  • No action
  • Disable double posting entirely
  • Disable double posting for 24 hours
  • Automatically merge double posts
The rules can be enforced, or relaxed, for forum administrators though.

Note that the above can be configured either globally, or per-board.

It removes Quick Reply if a bump is not allowed, but does NOT remove the 'Reply' buttons, this is intentional and is set up to facilitate users receiving the error message, rather than asking (repeatedly) "Why can't I reply?"

This mod makes a number of complex changes under the hood. Mods that interact with the posting system may not function with it enabled, though have not been tested. Mods that may foul up with this, though this is by no means definitive or guaranteed, or tested:
  • AJAX Instant Quick Reply - Does not properly merge the post
  • Anonymous Boards - May merge anonymous posts made by different people and anonymity may not be properly kept
