This looks good, thanks.

Given it's a custom threadbit, it may be good if you could include the contents of the first post, within the threadbit as a description. Hiovering the mouse of teh title gives you a truncated version - this is probably enough ({vb:raw thread.preview}).

Thanks for the suggestion, dartho. I've been thinking of a possible way to include this into the next release. What I could do, perhaps, is add an extra admin option to allow selection between a few available threadbit display styles, such as:
- Forum Style
- Directory Style

The Directory Style would contain the first post preview as a thread / listing description.

awesome phpdesk I LUB U

Is this still so that only the Admin can do these links? otherwise users could use it to spam and send ppl to malicious urls!

Edit:
Direct link should open in a new window too, and redirect should not show the redirect url (hope you can do these options)

Can you confirm that this will work with the existing data that we had for the same type of mod in vb 3.8?

Or would we need re-link the old threads?

I will try this out and let you know today or tomorrow.

THANK YOU!!!!!

Please be aware, this is Not an update to the Redirect Thread to URL mod from h2ojunkie that you must be referring to, unfortunately. So it doesn't specifically reproduce any feature from there other than the idea alone of a thread that acts as an external link.

And no, currently there is no usergroup permission control over the usage of this option, I will however consider it for the next version release, thanks for the suggestion.

You can choose to open custom thread links in a new window regardless if they are redirects or directly linking to external URLs.

Not too sure I know what you mean. vBulletin 4.0 does not have a separation bar between featured and regular threads. Are you perhaps using a mod to add that feature?

It won't work, but no need to panic, all you probably need to do is take a look at the "thread" table and rename the field containing thread url's to "link". Let me know if you need assistance with that, I'll give you a hand.

In the next release can you make it so usergroups that can ca edit other peoples posts can only add links?

It is how h20junkie's was done. Makes it safe for everyone.

I'm actually developing a more flexible option to control who is given permission to use the custom thread linking option and prevent possible security issues related to that. (see the attached screenshot).

no, i mean "Sticky Threads" and "Normal Threads" are disappeared after enable your mod. when i disable your mod. it appear again. i think your mod should just add thread url function, and shouldnt also change style or display of forum.

please check the image

If you could tell me the name of the mod you're using to add the separation bar between sticky and normal threads, I could possibly help you overcome the compatibility issues. This is the price you have to pay for the automatic template changes applied by my hack as opposed to manual template changes that not everyone can handle.
