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.

That is correct, if you read the first post it explains that.

Q. How do I use the custom template?

Just wanted to make sure. I did cut and paste our postbit legacy in just now and changed the setting to custom etc. And the first post still isn't showing. Does it matter that our users have several templates to chose from to view the forum?

No it should not as long as you did the edits in each style.

As a test, I uninstalled your mod and installed this one Same results. I haven't had a problem with any of your other mods. There must be something special with our setup, that is preventing this from working like it should. Disappointing as I was looking forward to using it.

I thank you for your replies.

That is why I would need access to figure out what is going on, otherwise it is just a guessing game.

This won't work if you have threads sorted by newest first. The mod (and the old one) do not handle this case. I guess the first post, which is actually the last post on the last page should be stuck on top?

Would it be hard to modify this Add-On to enable users to chose the option to have the first post appear on top while they're creating the thread?

Kind of like:

First post on top?: Y/N

That's what happens when you have written stuff for a different entity sometimes. I will fix it in the next version.
