Description
If your forums are split up in such a way where certain groups of users only visit a certain forum, then you know it's difficult to get all your users to read an announcement. This mod displays a certain amount of threads from a specified "source" forum, and places it on the Forum Display page right after the Stickied threads. These threads are labeled with a "Global: " tag.

This mod is in beta, so install at your own risk, but will be supported. Please let me know of any bugs, or suggestions that you may have!

Install / Upgrade
Download the attached XML file, and import it at
Admin Control Panel > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product

Remember to "Allow Overwrite" if you are upgrading.

Usage
  1. Create a new forum that will be your "source" forum; that is, this forum will contain your global threads. Get the forumid of this forum.
  2. In your AdminCP --> vBulletin Options --> Global Threads make sure you:
    • enable it
    • enter in the forumid of your source forum
    • set the number of threads from the source forum to display
  3. Make a new thread in your "source" forum and it will be displayed globally in other forums.

A fix for this to make it compatible with vBulletin 3.8.1

The problem is a variable that isn't set called $lastpostinfo2

Find:


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

And remove the text highlighted in red, "$lastpost_info2, " and it will work - I have it on my 3.8.1 test site and it's working fine. My version is highly customized, otherwise I'd upload it for you folks.

Just remove that bit of code. My query may be slightly different than what is in the stock plugin.

for 3.7.x version..

just change $lastpost_info2 into $tachy_columns, so that no database error.. if you remove $lastpost_info2, the lastpost info of your global thread will be gone.. or 01/01/1970 (date) and no last posted by...
