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.

If you have it set by forum or thread, when you navigate to any page other than page one, the first post of the thread should be the first post displayed.

No, it is only the first post of the thread that will show as the first post on all pages.

Just to ask and if there was already this feature request, ignore.

Could you make it that we can select first post visible on all pages from front end, for example admin tools, or inline moderation options?

It would be much easier and all moderators then would be able to use this mod without admin assistance.

Ummm, that may be possible, but it would require a bit of work, as I would need to store the info into the DB, instead of a setting in the ACP.

OK, see if you can work something out.

And, you know why I can't like your posts at the moment.

Noticed when you edit the first post and save it from another page, it goes back to the non-ciustom template until you refresh the page. Any way to fix that?

I still can't get the custom template to show as the original first post with the edit in post #82.

Nope, as that would require some sort of ajax, and the time needed to code that in, is not worth the payoff for something only you see, as you were the one who edited it.

Not sure why, but I can look into it if I get some free time, as I am a bit backlogged at the moment.
