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!

That's how I did it with a plugin on forumdisplay_start

This would be extremely helpful, I have looked at forumdisplay.php - and can't quite figure out how to get it to ignore stickies when sorted.

Any help?

Also, how would I implement this? I am not understanding the instructions.

If a fix could be found for later versions of 3.6x, I too would be very appreciative.

Actually, I got this to work on 3.68. After trying to rework everything and then going to upload, I saw that I simply missed a small file edit in the instructions. D'oh.

Thanks for the cool hack.

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
Yeah, I would second this as well. It's really about the only thing wrong with the hack. Does anyone have a fix?

Although people claim it doesn't work for 3.6.7PL1 and up, it works just fine for my vbulletin 3.6.10 forum. Thanks again for this wonderful mod.

Yeah I'm running 3.7.2 and I would really love to have this working. Are there even any similar alternatives at all? Seems like a common need for forums that nobody else has solved.

This pretty much works in 3.84 PL2. The only part that doesn't work is the unfilter link never shows up. Otherwise this filters the threads just like it is supposed to.


Once I figure out how to get that to work properly I will post the fix. For now you can do this:

On the last step of the instructions it says..

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I simply changed it to this which ALWAYS displays the unfilter link (which just refreshes the page if they haven't filtered):


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Also note, on that last part of the instructions it mentions <tr>, those weren't in my template so I left that out.
