The mod is great, I'm installing it soon. also hoping that you add more features in the upcoming versions.

Maybe adding an indication or icon in FORUMDISPLAY to indicate there is a new comment, with indication of read and unread..

This hack is a great idea, but I think it would be better if this mod used BB code and it was coded in a way which only admin/mods could see. This way, you can add comments to posts, which only the site staff can see, instead of saying something above the first post, which imo, is quite inconvenient. I'm not sure if it's possible to create, but it would be a great hack

Just my 2c

Can you set it so that it only shows up in select forums? That'd be useful.

How bout an option so that the actual input box could be user defined as far as its location within the thread. With either both at the top both at the end or the posted comments at the top with the actual editer at the end. (by the end i mean by the quick reply)
some options as to where these appear would be supurb.
Also having a per forum option would be great. I know that my site we will only really need it in 4 or so of the 49 dif forum and subforums and that it would make it easier to manage.
Also having an icon/image show in the thread header just like if there has been a deleted post would be supurb.

Installed

I agree!

I don't want it on top but I want it under the thread. I can't find the code to do it myself but that is my fault.

Can you please add this option or can someone lead me the way to do this?

Thanks!

the plugin automatically attempts to add the thread comments option. you might have done what i did which is add the $threadcomments to the relevant template when it wasn't necessary. Removing it fixed it.

If someone would like to make a small icon for forumdisplay.php that signifies that there is a staff comment in the thread, we'll look into making that request happen this weekend. Our graphic guy is on vacation.

We're also going to look into adding the option to make the box appear at the bottom of the thread.

Is there any way we could have a little text above the box saying 'Moderator Notes:" or something?

I was thinking that if you can make something like this then making a whisper hack would be possible.
Meaning members could send a private note to another member within a thread. Like someone could whisper to DChapman after this post that my idea is silly and he should ignore it. And only DChapman could see it.

What kind of image were you thinking of? If your still needing an icon let me know what you need and the dimensions and I can knock something up.

Actually, we've decided we'll just use a default vBulletin image to avoid the trouble of the upload. But thank you for the offer!

This one is easy. Edit product-zointsthreadcomments-1.2.0.xml as follows:

1. Find

Note the part highlighted in red.

Add

between "</form>" and "</div>".

Save. Reimport the product using "Overwrite".

Re-read the thread. It already does both of those things.

You imported the product and then also did the manual edits. Go back to the readme.txt file and delete those two manual edits.
