Force Users to Read a Thread 2.0


About this hack:
This hack allows you to set a thread as 'must read' by your members. Right now, if you make a post and want all your members to read it, you have no way of enforcing it. This hack will give an error message similar to the one you get when you need to change you password, saying that the admins want you to read a certain thread before they continue using the forum.

Once a user reads a thread, they wont be bugged to read it again.

You can set all usergroups or just certain onces that must read a thread.

You can set to site wide or just some forums.

Option to Force Guests

This hack added one query to every page on your forum a member goes to.
  • Files edited: 0
  • Templates edited: 0
  • Files to upload: 2 (1 via ACP, 2 via FTP)

Im using version 3.7.1 with vbadvanced 3.0.1, everything installed properly and looks to be correct but when I add a thread to be forced nothing happens. Tried logging out, logging in and doesn't force the thread to be viewed. I found this reference to vbadvanced but don't know where this needs to be added in the edit settings dialog? or does it just not work at all with vbadvanced?

Thanks for any help or direction.

Love this mod but hadn't used it in a while until today.

When I add a thread, it is no longer showing up on the list where the others are.

I'm using 3.8.6 p1. I too am using vBadvanced.

A member on my site asked me if there was away to send force rad message to his usergroup, Now this member doesn't have any admin right on our forums. But he is in charge of this one usergroup.

Is there away to let him have the ability to use the force read thread to send a message to that 1 usergroup without being an Admin?

Like adding force read thread in the Tool drop down?

So usergroup leaders can use it as well.
