Global Threads for VB3
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 24
Released: 31 Jan 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 157
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Is in Beta Stage  

This mod is based off a VB 3.6 mod by randominity here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=129626
He gave me permission to further develop this mod.

It is ESSENTIAL if you upgrade to this version from the original 1.0.1 version you UNINSTALL the old one first. This isn't a suggestion, this is a REQUIREMENT.

This mod allows you to display "global threads" in your forums. Global Threads are threads that show up in every forum (or forums you specify) as opposed to just a single forum.

This is perfect for important site news, forum wide polls, and anything worthwhile to be displayed forum wide.

I know you could make an announcement but people ignore announcements, and you can't reply to them like threads. These are real threads and if you don't take away permission people can reply to it like any other thread. Replies in any forum show up in all forums.

Same thread in multiple forums:
http://www.juot.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=48
http://www.juot.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=43
http://www.juot.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=20
(It's under the sticky threads.)

This mod requires a little work on your side- you must first create a "global forum." I suggest calling it "Global Forum" and in the forum manager when creating it, choose to "Set Active" set to "No" so it won't show up in your forum lists but will be accessible directly by you to post new threads in.

I have greatly increased the number of options over the original mod and believe I have implemented all the good suggestions ever made for the original mod.

This version will work on vB 3.8.x and should work on 3.7.x too.

I have marked this as BETA as there is 1 unresolved minor bug- it has been a bug since this mod came out but no one seems to have noticed or cared. When showing global threads the small arrow indicating if you had posts in the global thread won't snow.

See screenshots for a Global Thread example. The Global Thread globe icon is optional.

I understand, my main forum remains on 3.8 as well. Problem is 3.8 lacks the hooks I'd need to convert the VB4 version to VB3 so it would be significantly more annoying to get the new version running on VB3- would likely need manual edits.

Hello,

I have still vb 3.8 and just find a problem with this mod. Admins and moderators can't open global thread. We get error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 29944349 bytes) in /public_html/vbulletin2/includes/functions.php(5737) : eval()'d code on line 2

Common users and guests can read this.
Can You help me?

Regards.

I can only suggest increasing the PHP Memory Limit to 256MB, see if that helps.
