Thread Promotion System
By: Idan B.

1. Description & Usage:
Thread Promotion Sytem hack will allow the forum admin to set auto promotion system that will move thread from Forum A to Forum B once passed certain replycount.
Usage Example: "promote" popular threads to a subforum, so that new threads do not get drowned out by popular ones.

2. Installation:
Please click Mark as Installed.
Installation is pretty easy - just download & install:
  • Goto: AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products : Choose "Add/Import Product" and import this product xml (product-thread_promotion.xml)
3. Upgrade From Older Version:
1. uninstall previous version.
2. install new version as described in previous section.

4. Configuration:
Once installed, the "Forum Manger" under admincp will have extra section for each forum:
Section name: "Thread Promotion System"
  • Enabled ? - Yes/No
  • Reply Count - Text (INT)
  • Forum Target - Selection box
5. Known Bugs:
  • All threads are moved to target forum in certain condition - fixed in v1.0.2
6. TO-DO's LIST (Next Versions):
  • Allow to add redirect thread on original forum.
  • Allow to set redirect on forum category instead of configuring this per each forum.
  • Allow to promote vs. matching of cutom field (such as date).
7. Extras (How-To Tutorials):
I've written a complete "walk-through" of this modifcation development.
Read it here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=213316

one of main uses of this hack, as the original requester described it:
"Just for more insight, I will be using this modification to "promote" popular threads to a subforum, so that new threads do not get drowned out by popular ones."

I'd love too see an option for polling.

IE:
If Poll Results 1 > Poll Results 2 Move To Forum A
If Poll Results 1 < Poll Results 2 Move To Forum B

This mod would be very useful for me if it was with "time period" instead of reply count. I would love to use this great hack on my movie review website.

I have a category such as "Coming soon Movies". When we post a new thread in this category, we do enter the showing on cinemas date also. so instead of moving all threads manually, with this mod i could be able to move the threads to the "Movies in Cinemas" category.

Do you think its possible ?
Regards

Thanks for the headsup, totally forgot about that in this hack, only added it to install code but neglected to add it on hook as well.
it was fixed in version 1.0.1 - now available.

Is this "cinema date" field under the forum table ?
I could add support for promotion based on date. i'll add some support for it (custom field) on next version.
