Re: Sticky Forum Post

Joe,

This is great news!  I think this will be really helpful.

I'm just curious.  Can you allow only "admins" to make sticky/locked topics?  Although it's not necessary *at all* I think it would be an addition to consider sometime down the road!

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Sticky Forum Post

Hi Matt,

Only users with edit permissions on the page or on the forum instance can make sticky threads or locked threads. I cannot imagine letting ordinary users decide which threads should be sticky, it is an admin tool.

Best,

Joe

Re: Sticky Forum Post

Joe,

That's perfect!  :)

I agree, I cannot imagine normal visitors having access to make sticky posts - all posts would probably get sticky-ed then haha.

Thanks very much Joe!

Re: Sticky Forum Post

Hi !

I just noticed on my upgraded version of MojoPortal - I can't get the Sticky Forum Post to work anymore.  It was working in my earlier version.

I just checked out the demo here and am having the same issue...I tried several different skins on the demo.  I'm running mojoPortal Version 2.3.4.5 MSSQL

Thanks for your time.

Re: Sticky Forum Post

It has not changed and it is working. To make a sticky thread first start the thread in the normal way, then click the pencil next to the thread title to edit the thread. Set a sort rank lower than 100 and it will become a sticky thread. Normal threads have a sort of 100, sticky threads have a sort lower than 100 and the lower it is the lower it sorts among other sticky threads.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Sticky Forum Post

Hi Joe!

Thanks for your help.  My bad - the feature is working here at the demo.

But on my version that I just upgraded I can't see any of the forum icons to edit threads/posts or lock a thread. I guess that is why I thought something might have been missing from the upgrade.  My apologies.

Upon further inspection using Firefox firebug  I can see that the links to edit posts, etc is present in the code - if I copy and paste the hyperlink from Firebug, I can then get in to edit forum posts, but the little icons that contain the hyperlinks are not visible.

I tried viewing in chrome, Firefox.

Any suggestions on how to get the icons with the links to reappear?

Thanks again for your time.

Re: Sticky Forum Post

Answering Matt's question, I guess he updated his post from way back instead of a new post so it is not sorted at the bottom of the thread.

I'm just curious. Can you allow only "admins" to make sticky/locked topics? Although it's not necessary *at all* I think it would be an addition to consider sometime down the road!

Only users with Edit permissions on the page or forums module can create sticky threads or sticky posts. It is not limited to Admins but users without edit permissions cannot create sticky threads or posts currently.

Best,

Joe
