Another mod brought to you by,


Here is a small modification you can use to the first post on all pages, per forum or by thread id.

It is a simple installation, just import the product XML, ozzmodz_firstpost_display

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz] First Post Display Settings

Complete Feature List
  • Option to disable the mod completely.
  • Option to choose which forums, will show the first post on all pages.
  • Option to set which thread ID's, will show the first post on all pages.
  • Option to use the default postbit template, or use a custom one, which will allow you to add different styling to the elements.
  • Option to select which usergroups this mod will affect.
Frequently Asked Questions.

Q. Why do I need such a thing, you ask?

A. You may have a thread that has tens or hundreds of pages, and this will allow you to see the original post on all pages, much like you see here on vB.org in the modification threads.

Q. How do I use the custom template?

A. Note: Make sure you know what you are doing if you attempt this!
This may be a bit tricky for some users.

You can copy what ever template you are using, ( postbit or postbit_legacy ) into the template, ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit.
Now once you have done that, you can change the styling of the post, by adding css to the elements.
For example, if you want the first post to have a different background, when it is on any other page except for the first page, you can look for this in the template,

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and change it to this,

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That will give the first post a dark grey background on any pages other than the first page.

This mod seem to modify the RSS behaviour, before I install this mod, it wasn't included all the useless data for RSS stream, now it looks like it copy the entire postbit template and parse it to RSS stream, do you have any fix for RSS?

This is a bit more complicated than I thought, please give me a few days to analyze what is the problem.

I tried your mod and like megabink 'it does not work for me either. It's not that hard of a mod to setup, I did everything but fool with the custom toggle and sing it a lullaby.

Sorry no install.... will keep it tagged and check back later to see if it's working for everybody.

Great Mod =) almost what I'm looking for. How hard would it be to implement this on a per thread basis as well? Let's say a forum member would be able to choose if the first post should stay on top on all pages.

On my forum some threads would greatly benefit from this, other threads not really...

Now you can do this by setting thread ID in ACP manually, but it really would be great if we can set it in front end, with usergroup permissions in place (who can make thread's first post visible on all pages).

I have set Set Template to Custom

I have copied my postbit_legacy to ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit
I have changed <div class="postbody"> to <div class="postbody" style="background: darkgrey;">

It works great for showing the first post on next pages, but it does not use the ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit content

That makes no sense, if you have that option ticked, and remove the contents of the ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit what happens?

Nothing, I have tried everything now, uninstalled, reinstall, uninstall everything that has effect on postbit. Tried both postbit and legacy. Default style (mother of all), other styles. Choose one forum, all forum..
It does show first on all pages just fine, but I would really like the css for it to make sense
It simply does not use the Ozz template

I run vB 4.2.2
