About:
This add-on provides useful user functions and options. Provide your members with additional username, thread, and post functions.
Changing usernames has never been this easy!

Post Install requirements

After installing, run the content mention rebuild tool:
php cmd.php xf-rebuild:sv-mentions
or
AdminCP => Tools => Rebuild Caches => "Rebuild content mentions"​

This is a slow process, but required to prevent erroneous duplicate alerts when a post with quotes/mentions is edited which was created before the add-on was installed.

Feature List:
  • Create Poll. Allow per-usergroup control of who can create a poll
  • Custom User Upgrade Amounts. By setting the upgrade price to 0, you can allow the user to pay any price for the upgrade.
  • Remove Own Poll Vote with optional Time Limit. Those who have cast a vote may remove it (un-vote). This is a usergroup permission which may be set with a time limit (in minutes). Time starts once vote has been cast. Poll must be open and user must have voting permission.

A crucial part of my community. All of Xon's stuff is amazing and often times I see comments like "Why this is not in the core?" in relation to his stuff and I have to agree. Buy his addons, buy them now.
I installed it on first release and Xon fixed every bug I found right away. It is now perfect in every way for us.
