vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 24

Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

This modification allows you to easily highlight the replies made by the thread starter.

Features:
  • Enable/disable modification
  • Auto add a class name to the post table element, allowing you to style the opening poster's replies as you want.
  • Auto-add CSS to style the thread starter's replies
  • Can optionally style the first post (instead of only replies) as well.
  • If you don't want to do the auto-class or auto-css, you can use the $post[is_thread_starter] variable in the postbit template to do your own styling.
Installation:
Import the product XML via the Product Manager and visit the Options group (Highlight Threadstarter's Posts Options).

The screenshot shows the OP's reply with a wider border, but you can highlight their replies any way you want with CSS. If the opening poster replies via the quick reply, their post won't be highlighted for them until they reload the page.

Doesn't seem to work on my forum. Does it matter that I'm using a custom skin ?

Hmmm, that's a possibility.

Yes. Use the $post[is_thread_starter] variable in your postbit template to change the style.

$post[is_thread_starter] would be either true or false to let you know if the current post that is being displayed was posted by the thread starter. So you could do something like this: (find the class="tborder" in the first table in postbit_legacy and change it to this)

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

What this will do is add the 'threadstarter' class to the table. Then you can style it as you wish with CSS.

If you're not comfortable with CSS, try this to see if things are working:

At the very top of postbit_legacy:

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

At the very bottom of postbit_legacy:

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

That should give you a black border around all the threadstarter's posts.

I like this mod a lot, its a nice and simple idea to highlight a new thread and the submitters replys but when I tried it (both having the 1st post highlighted and disabled) it seemed to randomly highlight other users posts in the same thread and it didn't work on all threads and submitters replies etc any ideas but without me having to alter code, templates etc which i am loathe to do??

It highlights the top poster's posts, even on the second and further pages... This isn't good because I may be the page's top poster, but not the original threadstarter. :P

This is not showing up.

Using postbit_legacy.

vBulletin® Version 3.7.2

I've tried the above.

Any thoughts?
