Stop double post.

Post by TheTubeScape on March 6th 2010, 8:32 pm

Is there a setting somewhere, where you cannot post twice consecutively (i.e. no posts in between them) for a certain amount of time?

Thank you.

well, not on forumotion sadly, i think it would be possible to code it somehow, but only by people who know how to code well, i know there is an option in phpBB3 forums to stop double posting so it must be possible on forumotion forums somehow

Are you talking about flood control? Well its just a time gap, but users can post actually after that time passes.

Yes, Sanket! Like on here you can't post twice within 45 seconds. Is it possible to make it like 24 hours, but only on the same thread? Like you could post on two different threads within 1 second and nothing would be affected. But you couldn't post on the same thread twice within 24 hours? (Of course if someone posted after you this timer would go straight to 0.)

I need this on my forum. I hate having to go through and tell users not to double post when they do it. Even though it's on my rules page.

That's not possible but you can set a delay time for posting 2, 3, etc. consecutive times by a user by having a flood system:
