Make Stickies Bold Hack

Introduction
----------------------------
Ok, just a quick one as per the request here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=49935
Nothing special I'm afraid - it simply gets rid of the "Sticky:"
prefix and makes the thread title bold instead.

It has its uses - I've been driven mad by the number of times
I've been asked what a "Sticky" is, at least now they see the bold
text and know it's an important thread.

Sticky behavior is unchanged (they still stay at the top, lol)
----------------------------

A big thanks to Link14716 for pointing out my stupidity!

It's fairly simple, I can't see there being many problems with this one. Tested on vB 2.3.0, fresh install.

Cool hack!

This is a little addition.
You can specify a colour in the Admin CP (vB Options -> Forumdisplay) for stickies (i.e red), and use this code instead:

Then all you have to do is change the colour via admin CP to change its color

I'm running 2.2.8 and this works perfectly! Though i did try assassingod's hack and it not only made it bold, but changed the post icon to the text also. :\

No worries, thank you very much Shaolyen!

Thanks for this cool, but small mod!!!

I am no PHP expert at all, but how would it be possible to place a small post-it icon before the thread that is sticky. I have taken the liberty of attaching a gif, if anyone can do this.

Thanks!

Or better yet...

And add the <img> HTML code into the Sticky Prefix in the Admin CP. If you just want the image and not the bolded title, revert the changes this hack makes and then add the HTML into the Sticky Prefix in the Admin CP.

There are loads of things you could do with the sticky title.

The hardest part of making a hack like this is finding the code to edit!

The simple way to do it could be to just make the Sticky prefix: <b>

But of course it won't have a closing tag, but hey, it saves time

Here's just a small addon if you wish to have the sticky prefix with a colored/bold/italic thread title...

In forumdisplay.php find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

replace it with...

Just in case you were wondering how to do it. You can of course put anything instead of the <font color=red>

remember to use \" for quotes!

Hey, I wanted to ask you - can I have a prefix to choose from a drop down box, so it add's it to the thread? Can you post the little piece of code here too?

Thanks, Marco
