This should have been implied in the product post.

Thanks.

set to yes to view all post in post in postbit legacy style and of course you can set the first post to Postbit Article

I think that is what you ask for if I'm not mistaken ^^

Good Luck
Thanks for the input Super Jinni .... But you're missing the point, when you install the product it mods the newthread template and adds a dropdown selection for the Chief First Post format. what I want to do is have the firs post st as Postbit Article and eliminate the dropdown selection box.

Because I like having the custom format for the starter topic plus I like having the topic to be visible on all concurrent pages of the thread.

What you see in red are the pieces of code I added on to the postbit article template from the Chief First Post mod.

With these little edits I'm able to collapse the first post of the thread in the forums where this mod is active if I'm using the article postbit. The collapsing works and I'm happy with that. The problem is, when I navigate to another page in the same thread, the first post is automatically expanded again. The first post is not remembering to stay collapsed.

Can anybody help me keep the first post stay collapsed? What am I missing from the edits?

Regards.

Can anyone help me to put back the border around when using postbit_article? Also, how to make postbit_article as a default for everyone (without any choice of selection)? thanks.
