vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 46
Released: 28 Jun 2010 Last Update: 03 Mar 2011 Downloads: 173
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This a complete and total upgrade to version 2.0!

This mod is now an importable product, there are no more manual file edits.

In addition this mod will be able to auto edit your templates if you run the standard threadbit template, otherwise there are instructions in the zip file for manual template edits if needed.

What does this mod do? - Basically this is only the most awesomest mod ever for vBulletin. You can now view threads from other forums in "Master Forums" you designate.

For example on my site "Off Topic" is my "Master Forum" and virtually all other forums are assigned to the Master Forum offering user's the ability to browse 1 forum while seeing threads from many others.

New in version 2.0: You can now have multiple master forums.

See the screen shots for an example.

All instructions are included in the zip file.

As pointed out by phpdesk you must have at least 1 thread in your master forum for this to work.

I have tested this on VB 3.8.6 and am sure it will work on all 3.8 versions. I also strongly believe it will work as far back as VB 3.6 but can't test it myself.

This will not work for vBulletin 4.0, do not try to install it. The VB4 Version is here.

If you used the old version revert your forumdisplay.php file back to it's original condition before installing.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

You can mostly ignore all posts in this thread up to post #28. Old posts are not longer relevant to this new version. (Note: post #7 is still relevant if you have only 1 master forum.)

Upgrade to Version 2.1 (March 3, 2011)
Fixes a bug where the master forum wouldn't display as many pages as there were posts.

Nice idea but is there a way for the user to turn it off?

Not at the moment but it's a feature I plan on adding soon. Some admins wouldn't want to allow users to turn it off so I would have to make an option both to allow admins to decide if users can turn it off, and if so, actually let users turn it off...

For the time being I allow it on my own site using a custom profile field and a hack of the code but I wouldn't suggest someone who isn't comfortable programming php and vbulletin try this yet.

It has been discovered that you must have at least 1 thread in your master forum for this to work.

Would be nice if you had a feature that made the "master forum" use the same format as a forum search does, but with the appearance of an actual forum. By this I mean having a "forum" column at the end of the rows instead of displaying the sub-forum beside the username.

Thanks for a great mod.
But I noticed that there is so much, they do not all appear in the master forum, but only one page.

Yes, I see... I will be releasing an update shortly that will work on 3.8.6 and 3.8.7 and fix this issue.

If you want to fix it yourself, it may be a few days before I post the final version, you can edit the plugin: All Topic Forumdisplay Thread Count

Add:

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

Right above the final:

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

(the last line of the plugin)


I have not tested this on earlier 3.8 versions, only 3.8.6 and 3.8.7.

I have upgraded this to version 2.1 to fix the bug mentioned above. It should work on all 3.8.x, 3.7.x, and 3.6.x versions.

I just checked the plugin in which you comment a large chunk of original code. It's absolutely breathtaking.

I wish every VB query had a way to do that. I'd pretty much rewrite most of them.

(Which I won't do by altering the core files)

Yeah, we got lucky with that... Unfortunately they screwed it up in VB 4.x so for 4.x version you need to do a manual file edit or live with the bug that not all posts are displayed- not a big deal for large forums (lots of posts) but very noticeable on small forums that just have a page or two of posts.

First off this is great - thanks a lot!

Secondly, is there any possibility of doing something similar for vB4? I've been trying to do something similar to this for a while so that we could have:

Australia Forum -> Subforums: Politics, Sport, News
New Zealand Forum -> Subforums: Politics, Sport, News

And then we could use the mod to have a Politics forum (with topics from both politics subforums) a sports forum and a news forum.

I installed this, but the Forumdisplay Thread Count is not working. When viewing the forum list, the master forum looks empty. When I click on the master forum, all the threads are shown. Im on VB 3.8.6
