Description: Displays all announcements for the current forum (and global announcements) instead of just one. Also adds a divider breaking up the announcements from the threads.
Screenshot: next post

The latter part of the description was requested here at vBT. This requires PAPI 1.0.4 (link in the instructions) and adds one query to forumdisplay.

i really dont like the divider

The whole thing is template-driven so you can remove it easily.

Hmm, the different layout of the last post column makes it look a bit weird but if seperated a little better. :D

filburt1 24 Dec 2002 05:35

Couldn't think of a better way to lay it out :(

Tony G 24 Dec 2002 05:37

Here's my suggestion:

Use the forumdisplay_threadslist as the divider and then add your own little header at the top for the announcements display.

I would use this but I use that announcement but table so it would look to weird

nice mod though

People, it's template-driven if you look at the instructions. All you have to do to change the appearance is edit the templates just like a normal template mod, not edit anything in phpinclude.

Well I installed it and it doesn't look to bad. I only have one question tho. Can I add the text ANNOUNCEMENTS: back in the thread discription? If so where would I insert this at?

Nice mod BTW. I was looking for something like this earlier.

Yes, just edit the appropiate template.

Ok I figured that out before I posted, but my question was more along the lines which template should I edit.

It's done you create with this mod, find this code inside the file:

<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont><a href="announcement.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$announcement[forumid]">$announcement[title]</a></normalfont></td>

Thats the code for the announcement title. Just put it what you want. If you want the title to show Announcement: Title here use this:

<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont><a href="announcement.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&forumid=$announcement[forumid]"><b>Announcement:</b>: $announcement[title]</a></normalfont></td>
