Solved Moderation issue - "post edited by..."

Post by rampages on Sun 10 Nov 2013, 22:46

It seems I've noticed on my forum, any moderator can edit a users post without adding a reason, which then shows no indication that the mod has even modified the post. The logs also do not show posts being edited by mods, only deletions.

Having said that, bad moderators can easily edit a post, refuse to add a reason for the modification, and no one would know who did it. Is there any way to fix that with a script that forcefully shows that a post has been edited by a moderator?

I do not understand, why have you hired someone as a moderator whom you don't trust.

Check the moderation log.

Thanks for the quick reply.

No, at this point we assume we have all trusted moderators; however, post edits do not show up in the log where you refereed me to, only post deletions, bans, sent reports, and topic deletions.

I'm saying, every forum is going to have a moderator that starts off nice, and then may want to be troublesome, editing posts randomly, etc, which I feel can be an issue if post edits do not show up in the log or there is no "Post edited by: User X" shown if you leave the "Reason for editing post" blank.

If you look at the screenshot below, the action "Post Edited" doesn't show and it should start showing after the first action because we started to edit posts after that last post deletion.

I believe you are correct editing a post will not appear in the list. You might need to create a rule that says when a staff member edits a post he/she has to post that they edited it.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

To add to what SLG said, you should add that they also post in the message itself.

So for example they could say:

Inappropriate Content Removed~Derri

as well as filling out the edit box.

well i really dont think adding a rule will make a malicious mod put in the reason i do believe he wants to know if there is a forum option like in the pic below

and as far as i know there is no way to force a moderator to input a reason for editing

Forgive me, but I don't see an option in Forumotion to force an edit reason to be provided. Now unless it were to be added as an option, your only other option is to make a rule for your moderators that states they need to provide an edit reason.

Hello rampages,

ForuMotion does not currently provide adequate information on edited posts however, I have written up a script to force the reason for editing.

I've written this up on phpbb3 so if it doesn't work please provide me your forums url.

Navigate to..
Administration Panel > Modules > HTML & JAVASCRIPT > Javascript codes management > Create new script

Title: Force Reason For Editing
Placement: In all the pages
Javascript code:
Code:
jQuery(function() {
if(!document.getElementById('mode=editpost')) {
jQuery('fieldset.fields1 input.inputbox.medium').eq(1).prop('readonly', 'readonly').val('Post Edited');}
});
The script above, if used on the correct platform will add the texts 'Post Edited' to the input field. I'll also note that you cannot delete these texts as the field will be readonly to prevent deletion of the texts.

Unfortunately this will apply to every single post that you edit, but seeing as you want to find out who is editing posts I'm sure you'll find this helpful. Wink

Examples:
On edit of a post the following content should be added and not removable


Once the post is sent the user who edited that post should be displayed

Seth thanks for the code, however it does not work.

Do you think it would be best if I sent you a private message with my forum URL and setup a temp admin account for you, so you may check if I am doing something wrong?

Yes, that will be fine. I may need to modify the selection for your forum.

PM sent to you with details, full access. Feel free to do what you think will fix the problem.

If you need direct contact with me, you can get a hold of my on this Skype account: dualsoftprojects (You can send a message to that account even if the invite isn't accepted)

I may not respond for a bit because dinner is ready but I really appreciate the help. Thanks. Smile

All done!

Since you have the topic description activated I needed to change the index number to '2'. Your edited posts should now be forced with content.

Code:
jQuery(function() {
if(!document.getElementById('mode=editpost')) {
jQuery('fieldset.fields1 input.inputbox.medium').eq(2).prop('readonly', 'readonly').val('Post Edited');}
});
Edit:
I also wrote another which doesn't rely on the index numbers which I believe would be better.

You can replace if you wish Wink
Code:
jQuery(function() {
if(!document.getElementById('mode=editpost')) {
jQuery('fieldset.fields1 dl:contains(Reason for editing) input.inputbox.medium').prop('readonly', 'readonly').val('Post Edited');}
});
Let me know if all works well. Very good
