This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 93
Released: 02 Jul 2008 Last Update: 02 Jul 2008 Downloads: 453
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

This mod adds a New Thread button or link to the navbar so that your users can start a new thread with two clicks from anywhere on the forums. First they click New Thread, then they click on the forum they want to post in. The hierarchical list of forums should respect all forum permissions, and forums where the user can post are shown as a link.

Features:
  • Show/hide large New Thread button (Settings in the Global New Thread Button Options group)
  • Show large New Thread button as Text or the default vB New Thread button () (added v1.1)
  • Show/hide navbar New Thread link
  • Show/hide forum descriptions on the listing of forums
  • All HTML is in templates (scroll down to the temlates that start with gntb_)
  • All language is in phrases (they all start with gntb_)
  • The product can be enabled/disabled in the Product Manager, rather than adding the extra overhead of an on/off switch in the options
  • Easy installation: Import the products XML file

Hello,

Is it possible to allow New Thread only in selected forum names instead of all Forum Names appearing (I have over 500). ?

Find in navbar template:

Add directly below:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Puts the button right to the left of "Logged in as ...." info - Up close and personal :P
Thanx again for the modification SOCKWATER - I was certainly looking for something just like this

Jacquii.



ps - apologies for my "loudness" in the previous post :blush:



Thanks

Uninstalled. My members when they get new information they click the new thread button without going into the actual section. So if their new information is posted, then they can't see it, so they post the new topic. Next thing I know, I have 6 topics talking about the same exact thing.

Do you think you can implement a way so that after they select the forum, it shows the latest X posts?

The button is your default 'new post' button.

Man, this is the best mod I've seen in a long time. Really helps the useability of my forum.

I've had a little blurb about "posting a new thread" in my sidebar that was previously linked to a FAQ that explained to newbies how to post a thread. They would click on it and not understand how to post a thread because they would skip over the text in the faq.

Just installed this and linked that same text to newthread.php and it's perfect!

I would be interested in this option also, my newthread.php does not appear to be following permissions, but even lists my otherwise hidden Mods-Only Forums and closed forums, etc.

Other than that, perfect, and I've nominated for MOTM! Thanks again!

It works fine for me. Try logging in as a regular user and viewing newthread.php. If you're logged in as an admin, you'll be able to see the moderator only forums.
