Double Post Locator/finder function

Post by Van-Helsing on August 4th 2014, 12:48 pm

Hi all,
I suggest we need for our forums a function/tool which be able to locate the double posts to prevent them. I suppose it is a very good tool for admin/mods to reduce the number of unnecessary/double posts.

Best Regards,
Black-Shadow.

Hello SLGray,
No its not exactly that, this function/tool which I mean doing that: while you typing the post title the system is displaying a dropdown list with the similar posts and a little description (about 30-40 characters) under the post's title to check if the post already posted. Furthermore the admins can set permissions to groups which can do double posts or not.

This would be useful, it's tiresome to remind members to not double post when it's against the rules, but it's hard to catch who is double posting, very useful.
