Not Supported  

After installing this hack, you will be able to post a unique introduction for each forum. Sub-forums will show their parent's introduction, unless they have one of their own. This feature is available in ezBoard, so us ezBoard refugees are already familiar with it.

This hack does not add any additional SQL queries to your forum! it was inspired by PPN's hack, which was based on FireFly's code.

Screenshot (thanks to ptbyjason).

ATTENTION: If you have downloaded the first version of this hack (1.0), please download it again, and apply all the admin/functions.php changes again. The optimization was not complete in the first version.

While this is possible, it will be a bit problematic in cases you want to change something in the header, and want it to reflect all the pages. Instead of just changing the "header" template, you will have to change a number of templates, equal to the number of introductions you have. This hack solves this.

Regarding the screenshot, I prefer not to do it myself. If anyone can install it and provide a screenshot, I'll link to it from the first post. Thanks!

Awesome hack! Just what I was looking for. By the way, I have 2.2.5 and it works as advertised.

How can I change the title "Forum Introduction" to be the actual name of the forum? I tried $forumid but it just returned the number. I also tried $title, $forumtitle without success.

Anyone?


Here is a screenshot:
