Thread Starter in Postbit for vB 4
Version 1.0.3
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This will add a thread starter icon/text to the postbit. There are 4 locations to choose from (2 icon and 2 text). I know this had been done already, but I didn't like how it showed in the postbit. You do not have to have a signature for this to work. This product is just an upgrade to the manual template edit I have used in the past.

Note: This product was written using the postbit_legacy template and has not been tested on the postbit template, although it should work fine.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vBulletin 4.0.0
Version 1.0.1 --Fixed to work for vB 4.0.4
Version 1.0.2 --Added 2 new locations with highlighted text.
Version 1.0.3 --All 4 options are now linked to the first post of the thread. Also fixed a template cache error that was showing up for PMs.

Installation Overview:
-----------------------------------------------------
1 Product XML (2 Plugins, 1 template, 7 phrases and 1 setting)
1 image file

Installation Instructions:
-----------------------------------------------------
1. Upload thread_starter.gif to the forums/images/misc folder on your site.

2. Go to your Admin CP
Scroll down to 'Plugins & Products'
Click 'Manage Products'
Click 'Add/Import Product'
Click the 'Browse' button, and locate the product-boofo_threadstarter.xml file on your computer

3. Go to your Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> 'Thread Starter in Postbit' and set the following option:
--Show Thread Starter Icon/Text?: This will add the Thread Starter icon/text to your chosen location in the postbit.

--"No" will disable the Thread Starter icon/text from showing anywhere in the postbit. (Default)
--"Yes, Show icon under userinfo" will place the Thread Starter icon under the userinfo.
--"Yes, Show icon in message area" will place the Thread Starter icon at the top right of the message area.
--"Yes, Show text in button bar" will place the highlighted Thread Starter text in the button bar at the bottom of the post.
--"Yes, Show text in message area" will place the highlighted Thread Starter text at the top center of the message area.
-----------------------------------------------------

Done!
Enjoy!

You don't like the image, don't use it. I happen to like it and have been using it for a long time.

hey Bobby, i would suggest you a nice feature (obviously if you can do it): can you add a button instead the word (i mean 'thread starter') that links to the first post? this allow the users to get a better navigation ...

I'm using it in 4.0.5 just fine. Are you using a custom skin?
