What are "Personal Sticky Threads"?

Personal Sticky Threads (aka "Personal Stickies") is an Add-on for vBulletin that will allow your users to sticky threads that only they will see as stickied; these "personal stickies" will appear beneath normal sticky threads. This Hack was originally designed by Mephisteus for vBulletin 3.5, and re-released (with his permission) for vBulletin 3.7.x. This hack requires a couple of File Edits, and should be attempted by those who are comfortable editing vBulletin source files. That said, I have included modified detailed instructions that should make installation straight-forward and easy.

Special thanks are owed to Mephisteus, for allowing an updated re-release for vBulletin 3.7, and to john1744 and zendive for improving upon the query alterations. As I typically disclaim with my other Add-ons, I am generally a neophyte at this sort of stuff and I tend to modify hacks and tinker with pre-existing code to get the results that I want. That said, please use this discussion thread as a community-support and mutual learning opportunity.

Finally, if you like this hack and install it, please:


Requirements
  • vBulletin 3.7.x Series
Installation

Installation is straight-forward. Simply download the attached archive, decompress on your local hard drive, and review the Installation.txt file for the specific steps. There are, broadly, four steps:
  1. Import product-personalsticky.xml
  2. Upload the two images into their respective folders
  3. Perform two file edits to forumdisplay.php
  4. Perform four template edits to three templates.
Add-Ons

This modification can be further customized:Version History
  • 1.0.3c: Updated for vBulletin 3.7.3 (August 28, 2008)

Templates I don't mind, since we have only 2, but I don't want to be modifying files. Will tag to watch for a change.

Great mod. Can you have options to allow only certain groups access to it?

Absolutely. This is one of the add-ons listed on the original post and requires tinkering with a plug-in.

Apparently, you did not apply the file edits appropriately, or were using an unclean version of forumdisplay.php. Please make sure you're using the forumdisplay.php from vBulletin 3.7.3 and follow the directions exactly.

Thanks again!

Yes, absolutely. Look at this posting. You basically edit a couple of lines of code, and you're all set.

Very nice! Works like a charm, Thank You!

Edit. One small problem. It is showing up twice, once about the normal stickies and once again below the normal stickies.
