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!

Does this work for 3.6.5? I tried modifying the templates, but I couldn't even find some of the codes to change.

Hmm I have installed but when I click on a post icon it does not filter. The unfilter option comes up but everything is the same.

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

Add:

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

This solved my problem. Thanks!!

Very cool, I combined this mod with the Require post icon mod and am happy with the results. Thanks!

Very Good mod.
However, when editing old threads and changing their icons, they don't apper in the forum display...
New threads show the thread post icon, and I was able to filter without a problem.

nevermind, did bad edit of the PHP file... my bad :-)

I have been trying to get this to work on 3.6.8 and for some reason, I make the coding changes in the php file and the templates but I get nothing. I will go over my edits one more time to make sure I'm not doing something incorrect.
