This modification gives your users an opportunity to create their own personalized menus of favorite threads, posts and users within your bulletin board.


File Uploads: 1
Products to Install: 1

  • Zero file or template edits.

  • Complete list of favorites is listed in the user cp.

Can anyone else confirm if this stops ''Live Topic" from working? One person mentioned it did way back when but no one else chimed in,

Lets get this modification version working first.

What I have observed.

In one vbulletin I have 3.8.4pl2 which is HEAVILY modified, it worked out of the box perfectly.

Then in another vbulletin same version, it will not work at all, and now...

In yet another vbulletin I have, version 3.81...only a few modifications on this vb, it will not work in the navbar which I don't care about anyway, and I would shut off.... BUT there are no permissions for users anywhere in the usergroup section... so even I cannot access the vbfavorites.php page HOWEVER it does show in each post, and I can add add a favorite, edit and remove the favorite from my userCP and it works fine there.

Very weird, and I now suspect (as I posted on page 6 that I would look into the conflict of another modification) might be a thread or posting type mod.

Oh well.
Thank you all, everything you do is appreciated!
