Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This is a mod based on a PHPBB mod.

It allows you to 'weigh' threads, give them precedence over others. If you have a lot of stickies, this is very useful. Through edit thread you can set the weight. This has two simple plugins and one template mod to install.

The way it works is simple. By default, all threads are weighted at 0, anything above that will take precedence over the rest that don't have a higher weight.

This is my first modification that I've made, so any feedback is appreciated.

This is compatible with VB 3.6.4 and 3.6.5, it has not been tested on any other versions at this point. It is very simple, so I don't see any issues with other versions being likely.


If you use it, please click INSTALL.

Nice hack! Thanks!

It 's working but it seems that my mods can not see the option. Only admin...? How can I change that.

Should be able to be seen by anyone who has permissions to go to the edit thread page, there's no conditional in the template regarding who can see it.

so is 100 max? or is it on a 1-10 scale?

sounds useful, but wont it confuse members it some threads are below others, even when they are newer?

Only admins and mods who can go to the editthread page can use this, no normal members.

The max is pretty dang high, I think I set the SQL field for up to ten figures, doesn't really matter as long as you know what you want to set each thread at.

As far as the second question, that's why you would use discretion with this hack. Only weigh threads that need it, and use it on stickies as you want them ordered, regardless of most recent post.
