Old Thread Notices by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.2, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (12 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 65
Released: 22 Jan 2011 Last Update: 11 Jul 2011 Downloads: 286
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Latest Version 1.2.

This mod will display a notice at the top of any thread that is over X number of days old. You can choose whether you want to start counting from the date of the first post or the date of the last post. You can also choose to disable it on sticky threads (good if you use stickies for official forum business), disable it in closed threads, disable it in specific forums, disable it for specific threads, or disable it for guests (New in Version 1.1).

The purpose is obviously to stop bumping of old threads unless the user has a good reason. It's also a good way to notify whoever is reading a thread that it is old so they don't think a bumped thread is recent and reply to it without checking.

There are two phrases and one template to give you total control on how the notice looks and what it says.

Full instructions are included in the .zip file.

This was tested on 4.0.8 and 4.1.4 and should work with all 4.0.x/4.1.x versions. It will NOT work in vB 3.x. There is a separate version for 3.x here.

Live Demo: http://www.juot.net/forums/showthread.php?t=47981 (VB 3.8 version)

Note: The rounded borders shown in the screenshots will not work in Internet Explorer, they will show as normal square borders in IE.

Sorry Dr... I forgot a line in the plugin.

The correct code for the plugin is:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

(the line I forgot is in red.)

Thank you for the product. Installed and working in VB404.
How could you not show the notice on topics that are already closed.
Sorry for my English, am Spanish and I am using a translator.
Greetings.

I have just updated it to version 1.2. It now allows you to disable on closed threads if you choose.

Is there any way to change the notice color? (It is a bit... odd)

Yes, you can edit the template: showthread_oldthreadnotice

You can change the colors, borders, font size, anything you want. You will need to know some basic HTML of course to customize.

Thumbs up

I was looking everywhere for this. It took me several hours to hunt this hack down but it was worth it. As usual BOP your hacks are first class! Thank you so much for another great hack. Greatly appreciated
