Overview:

This product gives you additional options for the behavior and appearance of threads in the thread listing within forums and search results. You also have the option to define a time limit in days for the persistence of these additional attributes you give to threads, which could be used for example in the case where your users are paying a fee to have their threads be more noticeable for a certain amount of time.

You may select which of these attributes you wish to make available for use. The attributes from which you may choose are:

Super Sticky - These are threads that are sticky in the usual sense (in that they remain at the top of the thread listing), but they are to sticky threads what sticky threads are to non-sticky threads. A super sticky thread will remain at the top of the thread listing, even if a normal sticky thread is updated later. A super stick thread can only be bumped from the top be another super sticky thread. You can also set the scope for super sticky threads, and choose for them to appear only where posted, where posted and all child forums of the forum in which they are posted, in all forums you have set as active or in all forums. The icon for super sticky threads is an image of a screw head to imply they are fastened securely, and the tooltip for the image states that the thread is super sticky. The prefix type is changed to "Super Sticky :" as well.

Highlighted Threadbit - You can choose to give the threadbit for threads a background color to help them stand out. The color of the background is defined via a product stylevar. In addition, you can define extra CSS to apply to highlighted threadbits.

Thread Title CSS - You can define extra CSS to apply to thread titles, to make them even more noticeable.



These attributes can be set when posting a new thread and set/changed by editing posts in a thread, replying to a thread, or using the new link in the "Thread Tools" drop-down menu. You have the option to display the thread tools options on the quick reply form as well.

Drop-down Menu Page:



You can select "Active Forums" (the forums in which the tools can be used). To make selecting forums easier, child forums are included. You can select usergroups/users who have access to these tools, which gives them the ability to add/remove attributes, and change the time limit.

All actions taken by those with permission regarding setting/unsetting attributes are recorded in your "Moderator Log."

Upon installing this product, two columns are added to your "thread" table (these are needed when displaying the threads, and so it is necessary to add them to the thread table so the data is retrieved during various intrinsic queries for thread information and no additional queries will be needed), and a new table is created to store the time limit data for threads (since this data is not needed when displaying threads, a separate table is more efficient).

An hourly cron job is run to remove attributes from expired threads, and to run routine maintenance on the added table to remove any data pertaining to threads that may have been hard-deleted and is no longer needed.

This product is fully phrased.

Updates:

Version 1.0.1:
  • Fixed issue with thread prefixes.

Version 1.1:
  • Added support for selecting thread prefixes where threads having these prefixes can automatically have highlighted threadbits and/or thread title CSS.

Version 1.2:

Version 1.3:
  • Fixed bug regarding scope of super ticky threads and query modification.

Version 1.3.1:
  • Fixed bug where soft-deleted threads were visible regardless of permissions.

Version 1.3.2:
  • Fixed issue with permissions and viewing a thread without a referrer.

Version 1.3.3:
  • Fixed issue with permissions and viewing a thread when no active tools are selected.

Version 1.4:
  • Added definitions of important constants to additionaltoolsfunctions.php.

Version 1.4.1:
  • Added security token to form template.

Version 1.5:
  • Fixed db and checkbox persistence issues with post preview.

Version 1.6:

Compatibility:

I have never had that issue anywhere on any of the sites on which I have installed this product, and I just tested it on your dev site and didn't experience the issue as well. Since this is CSS, I am left to wonder if this is a broken browser issue (i.e., you may be using IE, which can choke on standard CSS)?

This is in all browsers and in three different pc.
Without change settings you can see it again in my dev site, when you find some time free.
I had it with default color before

Thanks


EDIT:
After many test i addressed the issue. I have this mod Chiplove.9xpro - Thread Thumbnails (not this in vborg)
It was made for me, with changes for my needs.

*When forums are active to show thumbnails i see that css line as i describe.
If i except them, css is ok.


* How come only if i change the default css color? Any way i must live with this if i not find it

thanks for this...

only if the options could be in the moderation tools dropdown with the other sticky option that would be pretty hot btw ;P

i got used to the edit tech quickly it just is another thing to explain to people and slightly counter-intuitive

Is it possible to introduce a feature to this plugin to separate Super Sticky Threads from the default Sticky Threads, just like this mod https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=249677

Thanks!
