Well, with the existing method (using 'Hidden posts' modification), the post appears as normal, but is in Moderated Status.

It makes it easier to see what the person posting the Staff Post is talking about, as it has a heirarchy...like a normal discussion.

Also, quotes can now have linkbacks to the specific post.

With your Modification, the discussion can only reference to the Thread itself through careful matching up of Datestamps..or manually copying and pasting and using Quote tags.

Perhaps a 'Send to Staff Box' button in posts/text link in dropdown?

Anyway the entry box can have a space added below it. It sits right on top my forums, looks silly.

Can this be made so that ADMINS/MODS that can see it see a notice that the thread has notes, meaning as STAFF cruises the site and if there is a thread that has notes it can be flagged in some that to get the STAFFERS attn to read it.

There should be a setting in the admincp options that allow mods to see it

Tx.. I got the Moderators to see it.

I would like to have a specific group be able to view these... it is possible?

I don't want the all staff to be moderators, just to be able to view / add to these comments.

Excellent *installed*. Thank you very much.

My wish is to edit my comment (inline edit), so i don't need to delete and add my comment again.


Regards, Stoebi

How about it making leave a notice icon like a thread that has, say an attch or poll. From the list of threads in a forum have anything using this EDITOR thing have a icone that the mod/admin only can see alerting them that the thread has inline notes.

Thanks
Any quick mod that can be done NOW to help show the staff when this is being used. AS it stands now you do not know if it is being used unless you happen to go across a thread it is being used in. On a large site, that may not happen. Right now this is on my site but not real user friendly since it gets buried in daily life of my site.
No way to activate a icon or the like that alerts the staff that a forum has a thread that has this mod in use?

That type of stuff can be added in later builds. The design of this wasn't really one where it was to be used as an alert system, just a means to communicate with other staff within a thread. I can see how what you state would be useful though
