Version 1.6 - Added new option to enforce forum restrictions on highlights in search and subscription lists.

Version 1.5 - Added new settings to enable mod per forum, and to disable in search and subscriptions if you want.
Version 1.0 - Initial Release

Live Demo: Qapla.com Demo Forum - See the "Thread Highlighter" thread- it should be highlighted in gold.

The purpose of this mod is to "highlight" threads of special usergroups in forums. The mod works on threads listed in forumdisplay, search, and subscribed threads list in User CP.

This is the free version- it allows you to specify 1 color for 1 or more usergroups.

The Giold version allows you to specify up to 3 colors for 3 or more usergroups. Optionally choose colors with StyleVars.
Gold version available here: Qapla.com - Thread Highlighter by BOP5 Gold


Both versions allow easy setup via the mod settings in Admin CP- You can choose your color(s) via a standard color picker and easily select usergroups by checkbox, no need to lookup usergroup ids.

Both versions also allow you to activate on all forums OR selected forums. Also an option to enable or disable highlighting in the search and in subscriptions.

The mod will automatically make template edits needed or if your threadbit templates are heavily customized, manual template edit instructions are included.

See the screenshots for examples.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this. :)

VB 3.x version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=272507

Installed. Love this mod but you should add an option to enable this in certain forums that you select.

I like this mod, but,...

The search results should filter based upon the forums selected AND usergroups.

Right now it will highlight in several unselected forums of selected usergroups threads in search results.

For my purpose, I just want threads in staff forums to highlight and this includes in search results. But when I set this forums and staff usergroups its starts highlighting those usergroup threads in other non-staff forums.

Will re-install if this filter is implemented.

^ I see what you are saying... I never considered disabling highlighting based on the forum it is in, in the search (or subscribed threads)- not really a bug but I can understand why it would be expected to work as you suggest.

I will think about this and probably add an option to let it work as you want, or to work how it does now.

I will post again when I have updated the mod.
