I have also tried (v good idea of mod) but unfortunately automatic template edit did not work. I have manually inserted Favorite link in navbar as instructed but then it didn't work (clicking will not do a thing)
I then realize maybe I need a bookmark so after first bookmark clicking has shown pull down menu with favorites.

Suggestion: when no favorites saved at all (in the beginning) the pull down menu should appear but saying Find your favorite Threads, messages or users here (for example)

The link has 2 triangles next to it (and I suppose it should be only one)

Suggestions/bugs:

- put the manual edit for link insertion in navbar in instructions and on first page too. Apparently in 3.8.2 it is not working automatically
- Favorite link is appearing if you are not logged in (and it should not appear)
- If you have no favorites than navbar link does not show a thing. It can show for example: Add here a favorite thread, post, user ...

I have 3.8.2
Great and useful mod Thx

Quick question: Threads, Posts and users can be added to favorites but how about forums ? This would be great as my board has tons of forums and subforums and my users always ask for a better way to jump to what they use most.

THX

Yep, this would be great I agree.

Question

Great Mod Psionic Vision, thank you for Sharing it.

(Nominated for MOTM).

Idea: For Future Updates it'd be nice to be able to Select the Usergroups that can Use this Mod.

Idea 2: It'd also be nice that on UserCP the Favorites could have it's own Page, in case the List of Favorites is too long it wont affect the View of the User Control Panel Page.

A Little Bug (at least for vB37x).

On Template vbfavorites_favpostbit

p=$post[entry_id]#$post[entry_id]

should be

p=$post[entry_id]#post$post[entry_id]

Adding the post after the #

If not then you'll Browse to the Thread and not to the Post.

My Best Regards.

Love this add-on, and installed.

I would like to recommend that the 'view all' link should go to a seperate 'favorites' page instead of user cp, gets kinda cluttered in there lol.

But it works great.

Thank you for the suggestion, it has already been said by someone else and is now being considered for the next release.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with the following code:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I think it should work for you unless your style does not have the template hook.
Worked perfect to fix link, thanks.
