"In Reply To" plugin (threaded view info for all view modes)

vB Version: 3.5.2 Rating: (3 votes - 4.67 average) Installs: 35
Released: 31 Jul 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 64
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This plugin provides identification in the postbit of which post each post is a reply to (See screenshots if clarification is needed)

The original purpose of this modification was to provide missing information to linear view mode users. I got the idea from a board I visit that used to be UBB Threads, though my choice of presentation is a bit different. After several requests with my previous version, I have added this same display to hybrid and threaded view modes.

The attached screenshots are probably the best explaination.

This is the vb3.5/plugin version of my previous vb3.0 hack you can find here

One xml import, and 4 template edits

This hack has been tested on vB3.5.0RC1
It adds 2 queries to showthread, and adds 1 additional query for each consecutive layer of deleted parents of posts displayed on a page. (If a displayed post is a reply to a deleted reply to an undeleted reply to a deleted reply to an undeleted post, 3 total queries are added to showthread, but if a displayed post is a reply to a deleted reply to a deleted reply to a deleted reply to an undeleted post, 5 total queries are added to showthread. If both examples are displayed in the same page, only 5 total queries are added to showthread.)

Functional changes since vb3.0 version
Display of additional information appears in all thread view modes
Now displays in showpost.php
Full template change steps included (variable details still given for customization)

Please click the install link to the right if you install this modification.

Please leave any questions about the plugin in this thread, I will answer them whenever I get the chance (probably about once a week after the first week after vb3.5.0 gold, more frequently before then).

Will this product be ported to 3.6.x? My members miss this useful add-on.

Can you post the whole template with the changes, please?

And the 3.5 version works on 3.6; there is no need for an additional version.

I tried it again and it worked this time. Not sure what happened at my first attempt. Here is the section of the postbit template containing your code:

We've been extremely lucky with this modification in that it's worked with each release of vB until vB4. Any chance of getting this updated for vB4?
