I have not played around to much to know if ocf has a feature that will disable the ability to double post but I thought I might ask.

Now there are 2 kinds of double posting.
1. is posting after your self in the same topic - which is also considered topic bumping even though your not always pumping the topic as it could be at the top when you post after your self which is why it is also called double posting - Many sites I go to do not allow it and will warn you if you do it. This is the kind i want to provent at least for the first 24 hours of the topic being opened. IPB has this feature built into it- they call the feature post merge or auto post merge not sure which, I know it has merge in it.

2 The second is posting the same topic twice. I do not think you could build any thing like that into any forum software at least I do not think so.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

#1 is included in ocPortal and is optional, and #2 is definitely included in ocPortal (as standard I believe). :thumbs:

#1 is located in the settings (permissions)
#2 is included as standard in our flood-controlling system. Notice that when you click the 'post' button, the button depresses so you can't click it again. :thumbs:

O ok so the second one is not exactly what I was talking about.
I was actually begining to think you had the second feature turned off on this site as I saw Chris close 2 double topic posts.

No worries it was probably my fault.
I am really bad with words some times.
