Mod Version: 2.2, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (18 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 100
Released: 04 Jul 2010 Last Update: 06 Jun 2011 Downloads: 504
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Code Changes  

This a complete and total upgrade to version 2.0!

New Version: 2.2

NOTE: VB 4.2.0(and over) Users DO NOT do the Manual File Edit on forumdisplay.php in the directions.

1 manual file edit is required to fix a bug where the thread count may be wrong in the master forum. Details in instructions in zip file.

You can now specify an * to denote "all forums" when creating a master forum. See instructions for details.

In addition this mod will be able to auto edit your templates if you run the standard threadbit template, otherwise there are instructions in the zip file for manual template edits if needed.

New in 2.2: Show or hide sticky threads from slave forums on the master forum.

What does this mod do? - Basically this is only the most awesomest mod ever for vBulletin. You can now view threads from other forums in "Master Forums" you designate.

For example on my site "Off Topic" is my "Master Forum" and virtually all other forums are assigned to the Master Forum offering user's the ability to browse 1 forum while seeing threads from many others.

New in version 2.0: You can now have multiple master forums.

See the screen shots for an example.

All instructions are included in the zip file.

As pointed out by phpdesk you must have at least 1 thread in your master forum for this to work.

I have tested this on VB 4.0.8 and am sure it will work on all 4.0/4.1 versions to date. There is a separate version for VB 3.x.

You can mostly ignore all posts in this thread up to post #25. Old posts are no longer relevant to this new version. (Note: post #7 is still relevant if you have only 1 master forum.)

Just installed your mod and it is exactly what I was looking for. I only have one question and it is how do I get it to update thread count. No matter how many threads are posted in master forum it only says there is one and the one it is referring to is the one I actually made in the master forum.

Is there anyway to fix this. I am running the newest VB forum. Thanks is advance.

Possible but not something I have coded. If you are interested in trying yourself you'd start in the plugin called All Topic in Threadbit and add a custom edit for when the thread[forumid] matches the forum[forumid].

Again possible but complicates the mod much more by needing changes to even more queries and it is simply not something I have attempted at this point.

If you read through this thread it was discussed before, a long time ago- I forget if anyone posted a solution or not.



This mod is probably due for an overhaul... I will look into a fresh rebuild of this mod and see which features I can add. No promises of how soon though.

Hi I'm interested in this mod. I have not installed it yet...I was wondering How to do this.

I want to make the Master forum Thread listing as my "Index" So my members can browse the listings of threads collected.

Maybe have the Master Forum Thread listing located in my NAV menu. of course members can choose "forum" too from the NAV. to see the normal view.... If I'm making any sense. :P

Would this be possible with this mod?

Hi again, Just installed it and followed the instructions. I made my master forum and set it up in my ACP. now when I try to enter the master forum I get the following Database error.

Database error in vBulletin 4.2.0:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS threads

FROM thread AS thread

/*
WHERE thread.forumid = 35
AND sticky = 0

AND visible IN (0,1,2);

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '/*
WHERE thread.forumid = 35
AND sticky = 0

AND visible IN (0,1,2)' at line 9
My masterforum ID is 35. Any idea what went wrong?

Not sure if you're still having the issue but if so what version of VB are you using? You probably do NOT need to make the file edit. Restore the original forumdisplay.php file.

I don't understand the question... What are category icons? Screenshot?

Joe all i get is the default status icon see attached image even though in forum display on forums it shows my custom icons for each sub forum but in the master forum created doesn't appear to inherit these icons from forum display along with thread titles etc.


Great product but why goto all the work of creating forum and sub forum icons if master forum display won't show them :-( Great for it to show the sub forum or forum icon instead of thread status icon. Or even the option to choose to use thread status icons or use forum icons.

Are those these icons? (on forumdisplay.php?)

If so how are you setting custom ones per forum?

In forum manager the only option I see for custom icons is for custom status icons.

setting the icon under Style Options

Prefix for Forum Status Images (This prefix will be used on status image filenames for a forum, it can only contain A-Z, 0-9, -, _, . and /)

Just add the location of the icon on a forum by forum basis. They show on for display but master forums doesn't show them.
