Mod Version: 2.2, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2021 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (18 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 100
Released: 04 Jul 2010 Last Update: 06 Jun 2011 Downloads: 512
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Code Changes  

This a complete and total upgrade to version 2.0!

New Version: 2.2

NOTE: VB 4.2.0(and over) Users DO NOT do the Manual File Edit on forumdisplay.php in the directions.

1 manual file edit is required to fix a bug where the thread count may be wrong in the master forum. Details in instructions in zip file.

You can now specify an * to denote "all forums" when creating a master forum. See instructions for details.

In addition this mod will be able to auto edit your templates if you run the standard threadbit template, otherwise there are instructions in the zip file for manual template edits if needed.

New in 2.2: Show or hide sticky threads from slave forums on the master forum.

What does this mod do? - Basically this is only the most awesomest mod ever for vBulletin. You can now view threads from other forums in "Master Forums" you designate.

For example on my site "Off Topic" is my "Master Forum" and virtually all other forums are assigned to the Master Forum offering user's the ability to browse 1 forum while seeing threads from many others.

New in version 2.0: You can now have multiple master forums.

See the screen shots for an example.

All instructions are included in the zip file.

As pointed out by phpdesk you must have at least 1 thread in your master forum for this to work.

I have tested this on VB 4.0.8 and am sure it will work on all 4.0/4.1 versions to date. There is a separate version for VB 3.x.

You can mostly ignore all posts in this thread up to post #25. Old posts are no longer relevant to this new version. (Note: post #7 is still relevant if you have only 1 master forum.)

The only way not to show zero as the post count in the master forum would be to create some threads/posts that were native to the Master Forum, and don't appear in any other forum.

What you want to do you might be better off using a "Link" forum and making the link URL and the link to the "New Posts" page but setup to exclude whatever forumids you don't want.

Something like-


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Where the 11,15,23 and 81 are forumids of forums you don't want listed.

10 is the number of days back you want to show posts from.

Doesn't new posts rely on what you read/unread? I thought the idea of the master forum was for having all the posts in the forum show up, regardless of whether it was read or not.

That search string is "getdaily" which is the Today's Post link expanded to 10 days- that should show old and new posts. The one you are talking about would be "getnew" that should only show threads with new posts.

Hello =D

I have this error:
Database error in vBulletin 4.2.2:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS threads,
(
SELECT COUNT(*) AS newthread
FROM thread AS thread
WHERE forumid = 185
AND lastpost > 1427937256
AND open <> 10
AND sticky = 0

AND visible IN (0,1,2)



*/ WHERE forumid IN (186) AND sticky = 0 AND visible IN (0,1,2)
) AS newthread

FROM thread AS thread

/*
WHERE forumid = 185
AND sticky = 0

AND visible IN (0,1,2)



*/ WHERE forumid IN (186) AND sticky = 0 AND visible IN (0,1,2);

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '*/ WHERE forumid IN (186) AND sticky = 0 AND visible IN (0,1,2)
) AS new' at line 14
vbulletin version is 4.2.2 without forumdisplay.php edit, how to fix it =")?

Upload the fresh forumdisplay php. file from the VB 4.2.2 download package.

For some reason it looks like the query hooks are backwards.

Upgraded vB to 4.2.3 from 3.8.7 - this product works as expected.

One out of the box thought - would it be possible to use this excellent product to show threads with no replies!

In vB 3.8.7 we had a link dedicated to search for all uncommented threads - that no longer works. and I'm trying to find alternatives.....

I'm with pjkcards - it would be wonderful not to have it appear on the forum home as an empty forum. If the #threads/replies can't be changed, is there any way to simply hide them on master forums only? I've had several people tell me they never click on the master forum because from the forumhome it looks like there's nothing there.

Love this mod. Appears to be working great on 4.2.5/php 7. I actually have no desire to have a 'Master Forum' but was able to create two master forums (one for all threads, the other for just RSS news feed threads) and then set the Forum's active status to 'No'.

I then created a 'View All Threads' and 'View All News' link for my sub-nav bar. great way for members to be able to see all of the most recent threads without having to go forum to forum if they prefer not to. Great work BOP5!

Absolutely love this mod. I'm probably not going to get an answer, or even a solution - but if the display options could provide threads in a random order it would be awesome!

A random option for thread display would seem like its own separate mod, it wouldn't be part of this since this mod doesn't alter how threads are displayed. But thank you for the kind words about the mod though.

Many thanks - It does display according to rating and age of threads - so it was just a hope of possibility

But yes, it's a great add-on

Any idea why a "last post" time would be hours ago and not current on the forum list page?

The last post time you are seeing (if it's on the forumdisplay or forum index page) is the last post that was natively posted to that forum, not any of the other threads from other forums that are also visible when you open/list that forum.

Sorry if that is hard to follow but the threads aren't really in your "master forum" so they don't register as being in there until you actually open the forum for viewing.

this is awesome - not sure why I never found this before


I have a minor ask, is there a way to make the Forum that the post is coming from clickable?
