Sticky threads have a tendency to be overlooked by the users. So I came up with the idea of allowing BB tags and smilies to be used in the sticky thread titles to make them more noticeable. I made this hack for VB2 about a year or 2 ago, but I neglected to publish it. Another reason why this hack is limited to sticky thread titles is because there are less sticky threads in a forum than there are regular threads, and if this were to be expanded to include regular threads it would be nothing but a can of worms. And also due to the fact that it can only be used in sticky threads, it allows only admins and moderators to use this feature.

This hack is such a simple hack that I am actually embarassed to call it a hack since it actually takes 2 lines of code to do it.

The instructions and a screen shot of the hack are attached to this post.

I need that the bbcode sees each other in Last Post Info of ChildForum (forumdisplay) and in the Titles of posts (ShowThread).

Thanks ^^

Here you go Triple_T

@Zzed - Feel free to use this for a 3.5 release - I began to work on getting the navbits to display the parsed text as well, but there is still the thread-title aspect of the postbit to consider and of course the lastposter info from forumdisplay and in a user's profile

Edit: I noticed my attempt to get the navbits to parse has destroyed the structure of the navigation tree - That will need some additional work

I've also posted some screenshots - You can parse smilies and basic BBCode functions within your sticky titles:

Beware: If you allow user's to post stickies you may risk causing layout damage to your board if they are over-enthusiastic with their BBCodes...

Wow thanks Chris, and fast too

I'm going to wait for the bug in the navbar tree to get fixed though and would be nice to have the bb code parsed in showthread as well

Just what I was looking for.

Any way to avoid the raw code from appearing on the forum home (latest posts)?

I am using the product on 3.5.2 and it works great! The only problem I have is the raw code showing, as mentioned above. Other than that though, working like a charm.

Very much appreciated!
