vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 46
Released: 28 Jun 2010 Last Update: 03 Mar 2011 Downloads: 172
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This a complete and total upgrade to version 2.0!

This mod is now an importable product, there are no more manual file edits.

In addition this mod will be able to auto edit your templates if you run the standard threadbit template, otherwise there are instructions in the zip file for manual template edits if needed.

What does this mod do? - Basically this is only the most awesomest mod ever for vBulletin. You can now view threads from other forums in "Master Forums" you designate.

For example on my site "Off Topic" is my "Master Forum" and virtually all other forums are assigned to the Master Forum offering user's the ability to browse 1 forum while seeing threads from many others.

New in version 2.0: You can now have multiple master forums.

See the screen shots for an example.

All instructions are included in the zip file.

As pointed out by phpdesk you must have at least 1 thread in your master forum for this to work.

I have tested this on VB 3.8.6 and am sure it will work on all 3.8 versions. I also strongly believe it will work as far back as VB 3.6 but can't test it myself.

This will not work for vBulletin 4.0, do not try to install it. The VB4 Version is here.

If you used the old version revert your forumdisplay.php file back to it's original condition before installing.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

You can mostly ignore all posts in this thread up to post #28. Old posts are not longer relevant to this new version. (Note: post #7 is still relevant if you have only 1 master forum.)

Upgrade to Version 2.1 (March 3, 2011)
Fixes a bug where the master forum wouldn't display as many pages as there were posts.

vbOptomize Pro. I confirmed it's what's causing the issue, when I disable that hook it works.

Anyway to have them both working together? This is the code in that hook location...

Try changing the execution order of the plugin on forumdisplay_query_threadscount.

It is usually "5" - try changing it to "2" or "8" and see if either makes a difference.

Thank you, changing the execution order did fix the issue. One last question, I noticed in the 4.0 version of this mod there is a way to have sticky threads show in the master forum, how do you do it in the 3.8 version of the mod?

I haven't released the updated version for 3.8 yet. If you want to show stickies you can edit the two forumdisplay_query_ plugins...

Find all "sticky = 0" and change it to "sticky = 1" in each plugin.

Sorry. I didn't have this version still installed on my test servers.

Change "sticky = 0" to "sticky = 0 OR sticky = 1" in both plugins

it shows threads in the list even if the member has no perms. i.e. if I include nsfw and mod forums in my master forum users will see those threads in the list even if they haven't got perms to see them.

They can't actually open the threads but they still appear in the list.

Is that the same in the vb4 version?

tia

I kinda like it this ^^^ way tbh BUT in the new version if you did * would you be showing (for instance) mod only thread titles in your master forum.

Edit: Get well soon man!

Thank you for your support punchbowl.

The VB4 version behaves the same way and even with the updated code it will show the thread titles for each forum regardless of the permission to view- but they can't view the actual thread without permission. Offhand I am not sure how I would be able to hide the threads based on permissions without more queries.

Cheers. No more queries on my account though! For what I need, the product is perfect.

Nice. But it doesn't work with Cerberus mod.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=254197

The cerberus doesn't let this mod take forum posts if it isn't on the same figure domain even if it is located on the same db and server. But this still has great potential.

How does this work with moving threads?

If a member posts in the main forum and then we move it to the sub (for organization) will it still then show it in the main forum? ie. auto post it there?

If the sub-forum is set to display in the main forum then yes it will still display in the main forum.

Personally I do NOT use "Show Redirects" for threads I move between forums because they are not necessary with this mod if the destination forum is visible in the master forum.

If you don't use parentheses then the mod displays all threads from all forums.

(sticky = 0 OR sticky = 1)
So use the above instead. At least it worked for me.

I have an issue I am trying to resolve. There is no new post icon indicator for any displayed threads from other forums.

Finally, is there an easy way to prevent this from modifying the search results page?

Can you help? I am running 3.8.7.

Thanks a lot BirdOPrey5 this is just what i was looking for this mod is great, but i seem to have a problem with it.

Now when i make a new thread in the master forum, the thread don't show in the forum.
The only way of making it show is to click on the link in the last post info box from the home page then stick the thread. Then it's displayed in the master forum. Anyone else have the same problem.
Im using 3.8.6

Edit: I've disabled the product & the threads show up as they should now in the master forum.
Can you please update the mod to fix that issue.

Thanks
