Found a new use for this in combination with CMPS. I suppose the same could be done with the custom_ template prefix as well.

I have a couple of forums where people should "only create a new thread if...". I created a small separate page that the new thread button links to with a disclaimer stating clearly the requirements for posting a new thread in that forum and then just manually added the HTML for the new thread button and link. This has stopped mis-posts almost completely.

I do the same thing with my support forums as I was getting a lot of support threads asking about crap not related to my site. So they hit the new thread button and are directed to a disclaimer about what we support before being able to submit the new thread.

This might be a stupid question, but I really don't want to implement this and find out otherwise.

I can set which forum I want this hack to be used in, right? In otherwords, it will not necessarially replace every 'New Thread' button with a link to the form will it?

Yes, you are right. In admincp you will be able to specify new thread button link for each forum independently. I am using this in connection with Abe's Form Hack and it is simply great :-).

After pecking around the general vBulletin settings, I realized it wouldn't be in there, it would be under the Forum Management area for the specific forum.

I'm using it with the Form mod as well. Great mods!

Only one thing would have made me rate this as an excelent mod, the ability to change the 'New Thread' button to read something different in the forums where this is used. I understand that would be a good deal of coding though. I wonder if there's another mod out there that does this?

Marked as Installed!

Maybe a way to change the image. I'll try to work on it.

Ok - new issue. For some reason, after the 3.6.8 update I have a few users that are running into issues with this mod.

When they mouse over the new thread button, it shows the link to the normal new thread page, not where I want it to go to.

This only happens to a small number of users. If I log in as that user (using a log-in as mod) and I click on the new thread button, it takes me to the right place. If I mouse over the button, it shows the correct link. Same goes for me as admin. It will take me to the right place.

Wondering if anyone else is noticing this issue?

I'm still experienceing this issue. I realize that this modification states that it works with 3.5 and that I'm running 3.6

Is there a chance that this could be ported over to work with 3.6 by chance?

I'm thinking that the new thread template might be the issue and I'm not savy enough to figure out what's going on.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? This is cripling our bug reporting process and it's driving me nuts!

Does not make any sense. This is not a user based thing.

I realize it's not a user based mod, however, I'm completely stumped as to why it would be happening like this....

Try installing my admin log-in as user hack and see if it happens to you also when you are logged in under them.
