Odd, the syntax checks for whether the user can post, and only if they can will it show the link. Only way I can think of that you'd be getting that is if the category isn't set as one in the CP (Act as Forum == No)

Updated for release

The final version of this puts the "New Thread": link in the right hand corner, on the same line as the forum description. Installer below. Should be final. Now if only I could figure out how to move it to the full release section :P

Nice hack, but I can't understand why an installer with DB modification is needed when, as bokhalifa said, it should be necessary a light template mod
???

Thanks a lot.

Because if you just hard code it into the template, it'll show up for every forum, not only the ones that the visitor has access to post in. Easier and more versatile to have it as it's own little template, called from within index.php and showthread.php, and it makes it easier for language conversion too, for those who don't want to hack the php code itself.

Sounds like you need to go to the admin control panel and the forums and moderators.. Find the category and click edit.. Then go down to where it says act as a forum and tell it no.. I don't have it installed but from reading the post thats what I gather from it..
