#3418 assigned enhancement

Duplicate topic check should only check for duplicates within a forum

Reported by: r-a-y Owned by: johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.6.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0
Component: Component - Topics Keywords: has-patch reporter-feedback


The duplicate topic check currently checks if a topic is the same across all forums.

We've run into a scenario where there is a forum user who administrates several forums. This user wants to write the same "Introduction" forum topic with the same content for each forum. However, if you're not a super admin, this is not possible.

I would suggest to restrict the duplicate topic check to the specific forum. See attached patch.

Hey @r-a-y! This seems OK to me.

Any thoughts about adding the same checks to Forums or Replies?

No need to do the same thing for replies. The duplicate reply check already checks within the existing topic and not across all forum replies.

Up to you regarding forums. Might be useful for huge forums utilizing sub-forums that might want to re-use the same forum name.
