This is an ideal hack if you want your users to make a new thread using a form or something else besides the regular vb new thread page.

This hack has been created do to requests by users of my hack call Forms Hack.

this is a good idea, but actually going nowhere... maybe make a note to non-coders that this hack is actually not doing anything if you don't know what you're doing with it...

I am sorry, but that is a useless comment.

He DID explain in his post why it is handy by pointing out an example:

I am a non coder and know for what it is ;)
Thanks for it Abe, I'll install it later.
One question only, for every forum I can point it to a different form?

WNxWakko 14 Dec 2005 04:26

This hack is a great addition. Anyone who uses his Form hack will definitly apprieciate this.

I'd love to use that one since I am using the form hack for submitting maps, mods etc. for games.

HOWEVER, I would like to use it for the first initial post only and when people replying it uses the regular reply button - is that in any way possible

Well, if you use this mod to make the "New Thread" button go to the form, your reply buttons will still work as planned. And since by default vB no longer has "New Thread" button within a thread, there is little chance of someone being confused. So it sounds like this will do exactly what you want.


These two mods are great, Abe1!

Yes. The option is in the forum setting. Each forum gets it's own option.

Fantastic compliment to the forms hack Abe.

Thanks again.
