vB 3.7 version of this hack here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=172155


Force Users to Read a Thread 2.0


About this hack:
This hack allows you to set a thread as 'must read' by your members. Right now, if you make a post and want all your members to read it, you have no way of enforcing it. This hack will give an error message similar to the one you get when you need to change you password, saying that the admins want you to read a certain thread before they continue using the forum.

Once a user reads a thread, they wont be bugged to read it again.

You can set all usergroups or just certain onces that must read a thread.

You can set to site wide or just some forums.

Option to Force Guests

This hack added one query to every page on your forum a member goes to.

Do not use in 4.1.4

It will cause your user profiles to mess up and the blog. Just letting everyone know. This is what happened to me.

Maybe thats because its not for 4.1.4, nothing from the 3.8 series will work with 4.0 series...maybe you should write a tutorial on that.

There is no reason to be a smart ass. I was just saying so people do not use it. I forgot to look at the versions etc. Was in a hurry and needed this. I think you should write a tutorial on being an ass hole.
