Force Users to Read a Thread



About this hack:
This hack allows you to set a thread as 'must read' by your members. Right now, if you make a post and want all your members to read it, you have no way of enforcing it. This hack will give an error message similar to the one you get when you need to change you password, saying that the admins want you to read a certain thread before they continue using the forum.

Once a user reads a thread, they wont be bugged to read it again.

You can set all usergroups or just certain onces that must read a thread.

You can set to site wide or just some forums.

Option to Force Guests

This hack added one query to every page on your forum a member goes to.

This works fine on vB 4.1.10 those who say it wasn't working with 4.1.7 must be doing something wrong.

I have a question, I have usergroups on my forums. The leaders of the usergroups would like to use this feature as well. Right now I can only see admin of our forums having the rights to use this awesome feature.

Is there away to give the usergroup leader the ability to use this feature as well?

now without making them an admin of the site

This doesn't work for me, no idea what I'm doing wrong. Version: 4.1.10 and the option shows up but when I try to add it and click "save", nothing happens.

Can anyone like make a video on exactly how to do this?

This mod worked ok for me until 4.1.10
It still worked even then but prevented the finalization of the registration process and ultimately no one could register.
Had to uninstall on my forum anyway.

remove all files from this mod .. check the zip archive to make sure you get them all then go to product manager and on the right side select remove / uninstall

I think you misunderstood what i said Hippy.
I already removed it.
I was just letting people know it appeared to work on 4.1.10 for me and did work actually but it prevented finalisation of registration for new members ultimately preventing anyone from registering. Thats why i uninstalled it.
It could be related to some other mods i have on my forum i am not sure but this mod certainly prevented registrations for me.

I tested this is every way shape and form.. I can register with this mod on with vb4.1.10
I can register with it off ..
All emails go out and the usual moderation taken place to verify email accounts..
so this is mod is still working 100% with the current vb..
try to uninstall and re-install see if that helps you ..

Thanks for confirming that Hippy. It must be my setup causing it.

Does anyone know if this hack allows to force a thread read in a specified forum only when a user clicks the Post New Thread button?

Much appreciated,

Marc
