Filter Threads By Post Icon

vB Version: 3.6.1 Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 61
Released: 07 Aug 2006 Last Update: 28 Sep 2006 Downloads: 373
Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes  

The 3.5.x version of this hack can be found here.

This hack allows you to click on a post icon, and it will show only the threads with this particular post icon. Once this happens an unfilter button will appear, allowing the user to once again view all threads.

As for WHY someone would want this, here's an answer to that question:

Some forums use the forum icons to convey if a thread has been sufficiently answered or not, or to convey some other meaning. If a poster wants to look for unanswered threads, they could sort by the icon used for the thread.

Think of this as a poor man's thread prefix hack

# of php page edits: 1
# of template edits: 2

Should take less than 5 min to install.

Don't forget to hit INSTALL!

That'd be a different hack, as it wouldn't be a filter, nor would it be in the main thread view of a forum. It's certainly doable though, I'd post it in the request area.

Damned if I know lol! Can't see it as being that intensive, I'd guess less than a search, as the basic idea is something like IF ICON THEN SHOW ELSE HIDE

For whatever reason, picon 0 and 1 are the same thing, works on 1 just fine. This may take a bit to figure out. If anyone has an idea, feel free to chime in.

nice work, I really like this.

I did find step 2 slightly different from your instructions when using VB 3.6.1 - here's what I did instead

After:

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

Add:

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

Demo at http://www.gothetahs.com/forum/index.php if anyone's interested.

Installed and this works fine.

Has anyone been able to add a collapsable box to the top of their forums which includes the post icons and allows you to filter by post icons from there (similar to what the SomethingAwful forums use for those familar with them)?

First off, Great hack, works well and is a great idea... Something I have been looking for quite some time. Thanks for this.

AS a result of how good this hack is, I have a couple of questions on how I would do a couple of things:

1) I would like to make it MANDATORY that a post icon (or would it be a thread icon?) has to be selected to start a new thread.

2) Is there any way to have different sets of thread/post icons depending on the forum/subforum?

3) Eliminate the hot threads/locked threads column, which is usually to the left of the post icons in the default template. I would like to do this so I can user bigger/wider post icons.

Thanks!
