Other phrases then "poll" "sticky"

It would be cool to have a few more things for intros to threads for admins and mods to use.

For instance, Say one if "IMPORTANT". And another is, "Admin", and another is, "News". And say you want a special one in situations like the recent attacks in America. "Terrorist Attack".

Well, Im sure you get my point. It would be cool to have this, and be able to change/add them in the admin area.

Thanks if anyone considers it.

It would probably be possible to add a thing like Post subject that said "Post type: " or something similar, have a checkbox there for whether or not you are going to use it, and then put some text in there and check the box and it could apply it. This would most likely only be usable by admin's/mod's/etc but could be changeable in the control panel. It also could be a dropdown box of pre-made title's for threads that you could edit in the control panel, with the default being none.

If many people want this I can try to do it.

this is a pretty good idea... so basically instead of it saying sticky or important it could say something custom..

Ok, I've popped this onto my todo list, so it should be done in a week or two (depending on how much time i get to work on it with school and all). I'll be sure to let everyone know when it's done. Actually, I'll just release it, duh!

Thanks ap!

Yes that would be great to be able in the admin area to set what these are. Perhaps just add the possibility to, "Add custom prefix". Then I could create one titled, "Important:
".

Then in the dropdown for admins below "STick/Unstick" there is a choice of "IMportant".

I'm very excited for this! Thank you for anyone who does it.

Would you rather have the extra title's added to the little admin dropdown box or create another dropdown box (visible only to admin/mod/etc) above the "Post subject:" box? I can do either, so get back to me.

These will be displayed like "Poll: " and "Sticky: " but are custom. Enter each word you want with a space between it, like: "Announcement Important Read". Don't use commas.

That's the current description for in the CP, and it sucks. If anyone would like to make it sound a bit better, feel free to do so. If you have any questions just post and ask them.

Ok, while sitting on my computer tonight I've gotten some new idea's for this. I will implement them within the next day or two and when I am done with them I will release 1.0.0. The current version is useable, but not great..look for much better things in 1.0.0.

Quickly:
  • Available to certain usergroups (possibly, not positive yet)
  • Be able to pick the format in which it is displayed, editable in CP
  • Choose whether it overwrites, is put on with, or is overwritten by "Sticky: " and "Poll: "
  • maybe some more...

Ok, 1.0.0 is done and I just have to document it.

New:
  • Has it's own little category in the settings area of the control panel
  • Now have ability to overwrite, display along with, or be overwritten by "Poll: " and "Sticky: "
  • Available to usergroups chosen in that part of the control panel (default for admin, mod, super mod)
  • Put the way it displays it into a template so it is more easily edited

Screenshot of new items (excluding new template):
