nice will check it out soon

suggestion: if u use <img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/exclamation.gif" then u need to upload the same image file for all your styles
better to use images/misc imo

Interesting. So does this check for the actual age of the thread (that's what it sounds like) or the date since the last reply?

The install instructions state:

In Template SHOWTHREAD
FIND
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$attachmentoption

Cannot find $attachmentoption in the showthread template but it is listed in two other templates: Newreply and Newthread?

So is this a typo or am I missing something?

LOL Thanks m8 but the instructions already say to place the code in there, but it also says`to place it in the showthread template.

But there is no $attachmentoption in showthread only in the newreply template.

DOH! I really should write instructions based on MASTER Templates instead of custom Templates ^.^
Instructions fixed.

@Jenta
But using $stylevar gives you the possibility to use different images in each Style, which is necessary as I fear the defauld image won't work well on dark backgrounds.

"Real" Thread Age doesn't make sense as there might be Threads that are running forever (game threads, spamchat threads, etc.)

i have been wanting something like this, but how hard would it be to change it so that the reply button is disabled instead of that checkbox?
