Hi,

I install it, but I want to ask something..

I want in some threads of a specific forum to have the first post in every page..

If I understood correctly since you enable in a forum the option for chief first post , all the threads will have theirs first post in every page???

Works great for 3.8.7 and since I use the Chief First Post for certain posts within the forums, this 'threads based' version works perfect!

Added an 'if conditional' to have it only viewable to mods and admins and commented out the options that I didn't need as well as sort the options to my liking.

Thanks!

For those having overlapping text issues with the postbit area, you can make a quick edit to the postbit_articles template by searching for this line...


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

and changing it to this....


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


Example: George Washington - Official President Thread


Another fix was to include the AdLocation correctly in the template. Go to postbit_articles template and search for this...


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

and replace it with....


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

Hope that helps

This mod seems to be working fine. The only thing is that the default setting on the mod needs to be changed from Postbit Article to your forums default postbit setting.

Lightbulb SEO Problem With Chief First Post

Hi there, I'm hoping the plugin developer see's this. I've been using Chief First Post for years. I love it. It helps guests or members on each page to understand the conversation without reading threads. This is really useful on posts with many pages of threads.

However, I just signed up for Google webmaster tools and it notified me of a problem. Because Chief First Post repeats the first post on every page the meta descriptions for each page are the same! This causes Google to rank low or not index these pages. It also keeps search engines from indexing relevant content on sequential pages in the thread.

I'm using vBSEO. Other SEO plugins also seem to scrape the meta description out of the first paragraph of each post.

Is there anything you can do? I want to continue using this plugin and I know that if I've just discovered this issue that it must be plaguing other users as well.

Please help. This would be the only disadvantage to this plugin. I created a post on vBSEO's website asking if they could help as well. Maybe the developer could work with them?

I'm willing to pay for a quick fix since every post with multiple pages is being dropped from the search engine index or being demoted in ranking.

I created a post on vBSEO's forum's asking for their help. If this author can help that would be great. I every almost all of this plugin's base is using vBSEO.

To Atakan KOC, can you help me with this? I love this mod and want to continue using it without penalties to my search engine ranking.

Honestly I think its so cool it should be in the core of every vbulletin style... but there's just that one thing.
