Mod Version: 2.1.0, by Wired1 (Coder) Wired1 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.1 Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 61
Released: 08 Aug 2006 Last Update: 28 Sep 2006 Downloads: 371
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!

I can't get this to work properly... I am using an extremepixels template and I don't have items to find an replace in the forumdisplay template. If you'd like to see my forumdisplay template I can try to PM or email it to you. I hit the 20000 char limit.

An incredibly useful hack

Simple, easy to implement, and it works exactly as advertised. Thanks for your efforts! The only problem, though, is that most of my users keep up with recent activity by using "/search.php?do=getnew", and the hack doesn't work on the search results page. Any ideas about how the search PHP code and template can be modified to allow the threadbit part of the hack to filter search results by post icon?

-Tom

nope forgot again, busy @ work. I'll see if I can get to it this weekend. Most likely it'll be a minor code change to get it to work.

This mod combined with Post Icons Forum Permissions would be incredible - no more need for subforums. If only this mod worked with 3.6.8!
