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.

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...

Any luck upgrading this?!
