What does this do?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Automatically assign a Thread Prefix to a certain forum, so if a user posts a new thread this prefix will be displayed automatically.

For Example:
You have a forum where Software bugs can be posted. You want each new thread to have the prefix "Unconfirmed" when being posted. You can specify the prefix_id in your forum settings and this mod will automatically set the prefix you entered to each new thread that is being posted

This mod does not obey prefix user group permissions. Please make sure that you assigned the prefix set properly to that forum and check if you entered the correct name.

INSTALL
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Import the attached product
2. Click install in this thread!

USAGE
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Check the prefix_id by going to admincp -> Thread Prefix Manager
2. Click on your Prefix you want to use, copy the "Prefix ID"
3. Goto admincp -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager
4. Find the Forum where you want to assign the Prefix on each new thread
5. Choose "Edit Forum" -> Go
6. Scroll to the bottom of the Page and locate "Default Forum Thread Prefix"
5. Insert your "Prefix ID" and hit SAVE
6. Done

I just installed it on my 3.8.4 PL2 installation and it seems to work fine. I had to change the minimum version in the XML file so it would import it, but it seems to be working without any problems...

Nice.

Hmm. Can this modification automatically choose a default thread prefix if someone hasn't chosen one and ONLY if they haven't chosen one? I understand your example, but I want to allow people to choose one and if they don't then have it chosen for them.

hmm, I guess not. I will try to correct this behavior in the next few days. Thank you for getting my attention on this.


//EDIT: After further investigation I found out that this is not possible. There are only 2 hooks in the newthread.php for posting. newthread_post_start and newthread_post_complete. There is no way to check if the user input or chose any prefix. Im sorry that I cant add this but if you are still interested in another solution you would have to edit the core files.

Is there anyway possible this can be combined with reported posts? I'd like to have them automatic prefixed. Tried to do so with a selected report section and added the PrefixID, but it doesn't seem to work with reported posts/threads.

It probably could. Im really busy right now so I really don't have any free time to create a product for this right now. Just check back as long as their is no plugin for this I will try to create one.

Has anybody got this working on 3.8.5?

It's installed and all the options are there but no pre-fixes are showing.

I am trying to make the Reported Posts Threads have a prefix, but now would this be a problem because the forum is for mods only?

Ok, it looks like a permissions problem, the prefixes are working fine in the normal public forum, but not for threads created in the mods and admin only forums, how can I get around this? Thanks.
