Force Users to Read a Thread

About this hack:
This hack allows you to set a thread as 'must read' by your members. Right now, if you make a post and want all your members to read it, you have no way of enforcing it. This hack will give an error message similar to the one you get when you need to change you password, saying that the admins want you to read a certain thread before they continue using the forum.

Once a user reads a thread, they wont be bugged to read it again.

You can set all usergroups or just certain onces that must read a thread.

You can set to site wide or just some forums.

Option to Force Guests

This hack added one query to every page on your forum a member goes to.
  • Files edited: 0
  • Templates edited: 0
  • Files to upload: 3 (1 via ACP, 2 via FTP)
  • Time to install: 1 minute

Version 2.10 (05/02/10):
  • First release of this hack for vb 4.0.
  • Added link in "Administrative" drop down on the showthread page to edit force read settings.

Please post your comments or suggestions for this hack. I read ALL posts.

You will get an email when a new version is released.
