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.

ozzy, i noticed that the 1st post on the first page is using my forum default postbit_legacy template even though I switch to the 'ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit' template and I am using the regular posbit template. That template only shows on the other pages, but not on page one.

The mod I was using before used whatever posit template I choose on all pages. Is this something that can be changed?

No, this only changes the postbit on pages above #1, it is designed that way to make the post stand out from the replies on the page. I saw no need to do this on the first page, as it is the first post in the thread.

I see. I use this for my vendors to post up sales, and being able to use the regular postibit allows them more width for pics and info.

Well in that case you would need to edit one of the plugins for the mod.

Find the plugin Render The Postbit Template found under the group, [OzzModz] First Post On All Pages Per Thread/Forum

Then replace the contents of that with the following.

Then you must have something set wrong. I tested that and it is working as intended.

I just copied and pasted it, replacing the contents. Save and reload. I'll try it again.

By doing what I said, it should show up on the first page, if it is showing on all other pages.

I tried it again, no luck. Does it have to be a new thread?

Not if you set it up correctly, it should work on existing threads as well.

I'm running 4.2.3 BETA 3, maybe that's why.

I can't say if that's it or not, as I am not running a site on that version yet.
