vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 93
Released: 02 Jul 2008 Last Update: 02 Jul 2008 Downloads: 453
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

This mod adds a New Thread button or link to the navbar so that your users can start a new thread with two clicks from anywhere on the forums. First they click New Thread, then they click on the forum they want to post in. The hierarchical list of forums should respect all forum permissions, and forums where the user can post are shown as a link.

Features:
  • Show/hide large New Thread button (Settings in the Global New Thread Button Options group)
  • Show large New Thread button as Text or the default vB New Thread button () (added v1.1)
  • Show/hide navbar New Thread link
  • Show/hide forum descriptions on the listing of forums
  • All HTML is in templates (scroll down to the temlates that start with gntb_)
  • All language is in phrases (they all start with gntb_)
  • The product can be enabled/disabled in the Product Manager, rather than adding the extra overhead of an on/off switch in the options
  • Easy installation: Import the products XML file

OK, I take it back, the Mods Only forums are not showing now, but it does list all the archives and forums where posting is not allowed, and when you select a closed forum, no error is given, then the page just hangs when a post is submitted.
I just wish I could create a list of specific forums to show there, and exclude others, is all.... thanks again.

I'll look into this.

How about if I add a way to simply exclude specific forums from being shown?

Great Mod, installed.

I think only logged in users should see this button, currently it shows for everyone, or did I miss something?

This is by design. The visible button convinces an unregistered user that it's easy to ask a question, so he/she decides to ask a question and clicks the button and then gets the login/registration page where they register for your forums. I think that's what we all want.

It works fine for me. I can see my hidden forums when I'm logged in as an admin, and if I log out or log in as a user from another usergroup, I see the appropriate forums for their usergroup.

Installed. I modified the XML to change the URL for newthread.php since I am using VbA CMPS, but it works great.

I am having an issue where logged in users are allowed to see forums where they do not have access to post new threads. How do we fix that?

I tried it with a double navi bar and it doesn't work well, widens the bar too much, takes the member to the archives ... I think to complicated for my members. but good idea for others

sockwater, as you know, I love this add-on. Would it be difficult to update it so it only showed forums where you can post a new thread? It's a little confusing a if a user clicks the 'Announcements' forum and get's a permission error. You know how wretchedly inaccurate those can be in vB.

Hi,

Very nice mod. Thanks for offering it.

Allow me to point out a possible typo, if it hasn't already been mentioned.

In Global New Thread Button Options, the description provided (in version 1.1) for the Show Large New Thread Button setting is as follows:

<< Show a large New Thread button to the left of the breadcrumbs in the navbar. You may change how this button looks by editing the gntb_navbarbutton template. This will attempt to insert the HTML into your navbar. If it fails, try the navbar link above or manually insert a link to newthread.php in your navbar. >>

There doesn't appear to actually be a template called "gntb_navbarbutton," unless I'm missing something. (Maybe I am.) Is it possible that the correct template is "gntb_newthreadbutton"?

Thanks.
