This is a really quick modification made by request which changes all posts after the first post into a thread comments system with a minimal postbit only.

Request: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1127072

Templates to edit: 1 - postbit or postbit_legacy

In your template postbit or postbit legacy

At the very top of the template before anything else

ADD

<if condition="($thread[forumid] == X) && ($post[postcount] != 1)">
<if condition="($post[postcount] == 2)">
<div class="smallfont"><a href="newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=$post[postid]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/reply.gif" alt="$vbphrase[reply]" border="0" /></a></div>
<div style="padding-top:$stylevar[cellpadding]px"></div>
</if>

<table id="post$post[postid]" class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td class="tcat">
<span style="float:right">$post[postdate]<if condition="!$show['detailedtime']">, $post[posttime]</if></span>
$post[musername]
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="alt1">
$post[message]
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<else />

At the very end of the template

ADD

</if>Replace the X with the forumid number of the forum that you want to use this in.

Save the template and you are done.

Limitations: This only works in one forum at present, but is useful for replies to announcements or to articles.

Future Changes: If demand is there then a multiple forum version will be made.

Why don't you do this with a plugin? Why make a mountain out of a molehill? If a quick and easy template edit does the job then why go all around the houses writing a plugin to attempt to do the same thing.

Changes since screenshot taken: Added a reply button below the first post.

Plug ins are great for people who perhaps have several different forum styles and would need to edit templates several times to implement something such as this.

This is a wonderful mod!

Would it be too complicated to enable multiple forums for this like you said? I'd love to enable this for all the article related forums I have. I'm not sure how it would work, with an array or a conditional of some sort?

Of course if you have parent and child styles then you only have to do it once ;)

I'm going to be changing it for multiple forums for my own site in the next couple of days so I'll do an update when I've done it.

I hate to comment on an old thread...but is there any way this can be modified to have an attachement show up in the comments?

If a user posts a comment with an attachment, like a Zip File, it does not show up in the comment.

Thanks if this can be done.
