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.

Is there a way to allow moderators to initiate force read thread? At the moment only Admins can do this if I am not mistaken.

Since the coder of this mod Abe1 didn't come on from past 2 years.... isn't there a way that any other coder can modify this or if someone can update this for 4.2 ??? I think it will be appreciated by a lot of users
Thanks

Anyone have any problem adding a new thread to view? I wanted to make the moderated user group have to re-read the rules again, but every time I click save, I'm transported back to the main page where only my two original force thread views are shown.

Can anyone like make a video on exactly how to do this?
I had the same issue, I was entering a wrong post ID. Put a correct post ID and it will work.

There should be a checkbox on every thread that you can just check if you want everyone to read it.
