Uninstall and do it over, it's worked perfect for me since the hack came out. I'm running vB2.3.0 also.

Add-on - This'll add thread descriptions to your search results like for 'Get new posts' etc.

Thank you !


I just mixed up the suggestions by 3 hackers here ( Scott MacVicar, Austin Dea, Slynderdale ) and installed it on my forums. Its working very fine without any problems on stable release of vB 2.3.0 .

Thank you very much for the hack to all 3 of you.

I just have a small question, rather a minor change, which i am not sure, how to do it. I hope to get some help on this issue :

When a Thread description ( i call it sub title ) is given for a particular thread, the actual Height of the cell in the forumdisplaybit increases, which makes the threads with description look bigger. Isn't it possible to retain the same height as that of threads with No description for the threads with description also ??
Infact, I just tried to remove the <BR> in forumdisplaybit template, but then again, if the title is small, the description starts off from where the main thread title ends, which shouldn't be the case.
The description should always be below the main thread title and now, i want it to have the same height as that of threads with no description.

I have also attached an image along with post which clearly indicates the difference in height.
Referring to that image : What i am looking at is the Second Posting with description should have the same height as that of the Sample Posting, which has no description. How can i do that, if it is possible ??

Thank you for any help here.

Great Hack, now the problems...

Installed it on and It works flawlessly.....SUPER
the forum is 10 days old with very few posts etc etc....
It never shows the previews on Sarari on MAC OSX, but perfect on Explorer and Netscape so I dont care.

BUT i Installed it on my othr forum and its a bigger one with 2000 posts and lots of info and it doesnt show up, the same 2.3.0 VB the same hack , the same everything and it doesn t show...???

Does it take time for it to make fill the description field on the new table? or why it doent show up.
The only thing different is that the forums are on fifferent service hoesting providers but both are Unix (linux) etc etc...
any hints or ideas?
