MultiMod - Multiple moderation tasks with just one click

This is more of a suggestion for add-on creators - in case anyone is looking for a project or something to experiment with.

I had an add-on for IPB where I could create a number of multi-moderation tasks that could then be applied with one click. You gave the action a name and then (similar to writing a script) built up a number of specific actions to be run in succession, e.g.;
  • Post into the thread ... <text>
  • Close the thread
  • Insert the follow wording at the [start/end] of thread title ... <text>
  • Move thread to forum ... <nominate>
  • Leave [no/perm/expiring] redirect
I mainly used it for our classified forums to mark threads closed and move them to the 'sold' archive, but we also had one or two actions for moving things to the Know How technical help forum or into specific Rides forums or the Charity Rides section.

Came in very handy and sped-up moderating tasks that required multiple "touches".

Just thought I'd throw it into the mix in case anyone thinks it might be a useful XF add-on?

Cheers,
Shaun :D

We are also looking for this feature which was actually a crucial part of IPB that we enjoyed. The feature we want most of this is:
  • Post into thread.
  • Move thread to form

Wasn't multi-moderation tasks part of ipb default? It was one of the few features in IPB I absolutely adored. Being able to (at a click of a BUTTON) TO post a pre-made response/action. A very useful request and something I think would be great to have for xenforo.

I fully back this. We really want it. This is the only feature that seriously made us not consider going to XenForo. We're very disappointed that phpbb, smf, ipb, and vbulletin has this, but XenForo doesn't. :/ We will be willing to help pitch in for someone to develop this addon as it is a crucial part of our website.

Unbelievable that i never noticed this in ipb:(
It's really a great feature, so i had to change my priorities and code it for xenforo:D

Addon is finished and was sent to ashkir for testing.
The workflow was changed a little bit, because it's UNBELIEVIBLE that IPB doesn't have any confirm dialog after calling the multimoderation action...
i just had to place
Code:
