Allow BB code in sticky thread titles

vB Version: 3.0.1 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 41
Released: 08 Sep 2004 Last Update: Never Downloads: 63
Not Supported  

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.

Unless you have uShop, or some other means for regs to make stickies.

Regardless, I'm checking this out.

thx kall but is their any way to hide the bbcode from being seen in the title since it displays fine in forumdisplay you can see the actuall code in showthread.

second when someone puts a url in the title field it wont go to the actuall thread it will go to that url, just so everyone knows that if your going to use this mod consider who you give access to use this mod as you never know what can happen especially when they have the ability to use almost any of the bbcodes and it will work as regular html.

A bit of an issue with it on my board unfortunately. Works great for thread titles but the BB code is displayed in both the breadcrumb and thread titles within each post. Attached screen cap....

That would require additional logic to determine whether to call parse_bbcode() or not per usergroup.

At the risk of sounding naive, moderators are usually the more responsible group of users on a board. So this shouldn't really be a problem.

I can look into trying to fix this. I'll see what I can come up with over the weekend.

I've had that happen, but on a different matter. That person was demoted and banned for a month.
