Description
If your forums are split up in such a way where certain groups of users only visit a certain forum, then you know it's difficult to get all your users to read an announcement. This mod displays a certain amount of threads from a specified "source" forum, and places it on the Forum Display page right after the Stickied threads. These threads are labeled with a "Global: " tag.

This mod is in beta, so install at your own risk, but will be supported. Please let me know of any bugs, or suggestions that you may have!

Install / Upgrade
Download the attached XML file, and import it at
Admin Control Panel > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product

Remember to "Allow Overwrite" if you are upgrading.

Usage
  1. Create a new forum that will be your "source" forum; that is, this forum will contain your global threads. Get the forumid of this forum.
  2. In your AdminCP --> vBulletin Options --> Global Threads make sure you:
    • enable it
    • enter in the forumid of your source forum
    • set the number of threads from the source forum to display
  3. Make a new thread in your "source" forum and it will be displayed globally in other forums.

Really is a great idea, it means I won't have to sticky an identical thread in every single forum - as afterall, without comments announcements can be useless.

cool idea.

how about the ability to exclude certain forums from it or choosing which forums to show which threads in?

Thumbs up

Wow, this is a SUPER idea! I'll wait until it's out of Beta, but plan to use it with a FOR SALE forum so the latest threads will be displayed in my other forums as well.

Go into your AdminCP and select Forums & Moderators, then choose Forum Manager. Now, click on a forum name and at the top of the next page you'll see the forum ID to the right of the forum name.(i.e. Forum: For Sale! (id: 16))

Assuming 25 is the ID of your newly created forum, then...

Usage
Create a new forum that will be your "source" forum; that is, this forum will contain your global threads. Get the forumid of this forum. (25 in your case)

In your AdminCP --> vBulletin Options --> Global Threads make sure you:
- enable it
- enter in the forumid (i.e. 25) of your source forum
- set the number of threads from the source forum to display
Make a new thread in your "source" forum and it will be displayed globally in other forums.
