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.

No, either the standard post bit or a custom one, not multiple templates.

Sure, did that for all forums as I need it on all places except for guests

Edit:
For some reason after I marked all forums and clicked "save" settings were not saved...repeated this several times and 3rd time it was saved...for some reason it did not save options first 2 times did not noticed that after first try...it was not marked after save...

Maybe cause I got bunch of forums marked around 30 or so...

Now its ok :]

nominated rated thank you

Edit2:
not nominated as I cant, voted for mod of a month :]

That's certainly strange behavior. But glad it's sorted anyway.

Maybe because I have bunch of forums +30 so...?

Anyways, just one small question:

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......
So to copy whole "postbit_legacy" template there and change it within "ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit"....I can be free to play with it there no worries for some f*** up ?

Correct, that is if you are going to use the custom option.

Copy the entire postbit_legacy to ozzmodz_firstpost_display_postbit, then change the setting to custom.

Thanks for the plugin. I too have same issue with mega and in fact it's causing by selecting multiple forums from the list by holding ctrl key select. I selected all forums and save and now plugin works.

However, i'm using custom option to color first post differently, and did this on

<div class="postbody"style="background: black;">

but all background of posts are black now..

I copied legacy postbit where the avatars are on left.

Good Lord...

I checked it again to get content and found out that i actually edited legacy instead of the plugin's template...

Now, i pasted legacy to plugin's template made the change about first post and everything is fine, working good under 4.2.2

Thanks and sorry for my mistake

Kind Regards
