Ok I know something like this has already been released but since this isnt exacly the same, quite different actually, Ive decided to release it.

Basically this pops up a html based onmouseover box when you move your mouse over a thread title in forumdisplay, then it returns the username, thread title, a part of the thread title (this can be customized by yourself, however only in the source, this is a simple hack which I only released as I thought some ppl might appreciate it) if its open or closed and the replies/views of it, basically you could modify the templates and have it return all the details the thread sql table contains.

Check screenshot for more info..

Interesting... the screenshot isn't too clear but I suppose that can not be avoided. Nice work, this is almost like an improved version of Invision Power's thread description box.

Take a look in the offical Invision Power Board forums. Scroll down a bit, you'll see the desciptions under the thread titles.

Great hack:

Is there anyway to make the popup box remain solid when it scrolls over something like a pull down menu? As it stands now when the popup box is over a pull down menu the pull down menu is visible in the popup box. Also, is there anyway to direct the popup box so that it stays on top even when you scroll down the page?

Thanks,
Parker

its not a bug, its just the way the javascript has been written, and like I said I didnt make it since I dont know much about js.. but Ive done something like this before on my work, so u need to set the position of the box, but Im gonna have to look a bit further into that, will let you know when I found out..

and about:

Also, is there anyway to direct the popup box so that it stays on top even when you scroll down the page?
im a little confused here, could u explain what u mean?

I'm not able to see how this is different than N!ck's Improved Thread Preview Hack?

Also it would be very good if you performed a "LEFT JOIN" to post table in thread retrieval query (just like N!ck's hack is doing). Your method of getting info from post table adds as many query as thread count in forum display page (in every visit) so if say there are 30 threads in that page, your query count will increase by 30. LEFT JOIN method would add 0 queries to your forumdisplay so I guess it is more performance friendly.

Logician, N!ck is using a simple title tag for his url's, this would be good if it would actually stay there as long as your mouse is over the link, but it doesnt, with title u can read about 50% of what it says and then it disappears, so u have to move ur mouse over 'again'. Besides mine gives more details about the thread, plus it uses your current style css..

and thanks for the LEFT JOIN advise, will take a look at it right now

edit: just saw N!ck's code, it requires adding a new querry, I could do this but then it would turn out to be a rip off of N!ck and I dont want that.. I'll see if I can find a way around
