Here, try running this query and see if it helps:
UPDATE usergroup SET canusecustomprefixes=1 WHERE usergroupid=5 OR usergroupid=6 OR usergroupid=7;
I forgot to put that in the instructions. Right now, if you didn't edit the usergroup stuff, no one has permission to do this, seeing why it isn't displayed.

Well...that helped in that now the dropdown box shows up in the newthread template when you go to make a post, but the custom prefix still doesn't show up in the title.

Hey is THIS the exact hack that the crew of vbulletin.org implemented on the Full Releases forum, the pull-down menu for selecting which version of vBulletin and all?

Is it _this_ hack? And if so, does the zipfile at the top come with the complete explanation/install notes now? (seeing as how you forgot some bits originally, I don't know if you've included those in the zip yet or not...)

I *really* want this feature (those prefixes) installed ASAP on my board, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Also, is it possible to make is so that when posting a new thread, you can have the option NOT to use a prefix, and have that option be the default option?

I didn't make the one they are using, although they do appear to be similar. Yes, the install should totally work now. Yes, by default "Default (none)" is selected, and then nothing shows up in front of the thread.

Hope that answers your questions!

cool, thanks! I'm implementing this as I type, I'll let you know when I'm done.

Oh wait, just one more question: how can I specify it so that the hack will only show up for new threads on ONE specific forum ??

has anyone else been able to successfully get this hack to work? I've gone through everything 2 and 3 times over and have had no luck.

I haven't installed it yet because I want to know, first, how I can define it so that it only shows up in ONE particular forum....

No, this is in all forums if you install it. In the next version I will add a per-forum option.

okay, well check out the requests forum, I made a thread about this, there. Would be an idea if you'd keep an eye on that as well, that way you could share ideas and skills concerning this particular hack with those who already made it but haven't made a thread for it (or at least, I can't find one).

This has sounds great and looks great from what I have seen but I have only one question (I may have missed this). But can you make it to where it only allows them in certain forums or is this already a part of the hack? If so I am going to use it for sure.

Thanks

I have noticed that the data query insert will be overwritten my Stars Hack, so I abandod the hack installation. Since I'm an idiot, can you make a new [b]usergroup.php[/] file that has stars hack already installed together with this? thanks.

Sorry, I'm not going to make different versions of this hack so they can be installed with other pre-existing hacks. You should be able to install it around it, it will just take a little bit more time and thought.
