Better Similar Threads Placement
Mod Version: 1.00, by Raptor (Designer) Raptor is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 13
Released: 20 Dec 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

No idea if this has been posted before but i did do a search and couldn't see it.

Its a really easy little modification - it moves the Similar threads box to the TOP of the thread as being at the bottom didn't provide much traffic. Since I moved it WOW - I'm having threads revived that have been dorment for a LONG time.

Tested on vb 3.8.4 PL1

in Showthread template:

Find:


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

Delete it if you don't want it at the bottom of the thread.

Find:


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

and paste $similarthreads below that.

That's it - simple

The question is, do you want to have old threads to be active again?

Depends on the forum/subforums... and also, that is not the only point of doing this change... is more visible to users, and this is good... like on this forum (vbulleting.org) you can see the similar threads (in this case, mods) below the first post.

Sry for my english.

After the first post makes it look a mess and totally confusing - however you are welcome to do that on your own forum.

Moved it to under <!-- / toolbar --> and for me seems to work quite well. Thanks for the idea!

I wonder how tough it would be to make this block stay collapsed by default. Will look for something to do that next.
