Hi All,

Just have a question regarding active topics and the drop down list which is at present:

1. Active Topics
2. Active Post
3. Unanswered Post

Would it be possible to have the following instead:

1. Repairs and Maintenance Active Topics
2. Finding and Swapping
3. Repairs and Maintenance
4. Collectors' Corner
5. Restoring and Customising

This has been requested by our members so that they do not have to go through all the post for every area to find what they are looking for for that particular forum.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Humm,
Are you asking for some type of custom search link?
Such as:
Repairs and Maintenance Active Topics
Will only search that forum?

reben,

Yes that is what has been requested by the moderators of the forum and it is out of my depth I think. blush

Hi to All,
What we have set up on our forum is what we call 5 'super forum' topics;
1. Repairs and Maintenance
2. Finding and Swapping
3. Repairs and Maintenance
4. Collectors' Corner
5. Restoring and Customising.

What we would like, is to have these topics listed in 'Active Topics" so as our members don't have to wade through the complete forum, to find the active threads or topics that they are interested in.
So yes, I guess it would be a customised Active Topic listing.
Could this be achieved? As without it, the 'super forum' concept we set up is not working as it should.
Kindest Regards,
Darryl (Global Mod, OutdoorKing.com)


Many thanks,
Kindest Regards,
Darryl

Well the default active topics takes into account all forums.
But you could build a post island that lists only postings from selected forums.
FYI.
you could also add this url to the main active topics menu. By modding a file.
That file should be header.tpl.
