Description
This little number will take any specified forums (subforums optional) and modify them to seperate "open issues" from "closed issues". It's great for tracking which support issues are actually resolved.

The key here is letting users close their own threads. Under forum permissions, make sure you let users do this or it loses most of its usefulness.

I suggest having a sticky thread letting users know they CAN close their own threads. However, this is mostly covered by a SHOWTHREAD edit which will tell one of three messages to the viewer:

Staff - "This issue has been resolved! The thread starter may re-open it if he wishes."

Thread Starter - "This issue has been resolved! You may re-open it if you are still having problems."

Other Users - "This issue has been resolved! If you have a similar issue, please create a new thread." (link)

Planned Updates
-Button to open/close thread
-$colspan option for modified threadbits
-Phrased
-Forum Chooser instead of using ForumIDs

I'm about to add "Open/Close" buttons on the post bit, I'll send you the edits needed if you don't beat me to it.

Thanks for the hack.

this is pretty cool.. what would be even more cool is if like [resolved] could be put in the subject line or in a column in the showthread display.

Remove the 'executionorder="x"' stuff from the XML and it should be OK.

I saw once a hack like this but there you didn't had to give members the permission the open/close threads.
When someone replied to a problem the thread starter could select the person who solved the problem (this list was made based on who replied on the thread)
is there a way to modify it like this?
Grtz
