A simple little edit which allows registered members to click an icon and be taken directly to a new thread page for that specific forum id. In other words, you can create a thread directly from the forum home for each forum.

Styles & Templates >> Forum Home Templates >> forumhome_forumbit_level2_post >> Find:

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

Add after:

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


Upload the icon to your themes /buttons folder. Alternatively, you can specify a new icon image by editing:

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

See screenshot for a more accurate description of this edit.

If you use this for a plugin, please credit me. If you use this on your forum, click installed! Thank you for reading.

What about if you have sub-forums on a forum in forumhome and if you only allow members to post on these sub-forums? Users get an error message saying the forum is closed for new messages since they must only post in the sub-forums listed there.

I don't quite understand, are you getting an error when you add this?

Great mod! I've been looking for this for a year...only saw it for 4.0.
Note, to do this for sub-forums you can repeat the same process for forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
I've also added the button to my top menu and hard-coded my open forum id into it, so now it's easier than ever to start a new thread even for the slowest of members.

Add a conditional if you have forums that are locked/closed to new posts.
