Good idea, I can use this to make a post type called MOD(s) and post them, only by admin in my MOD(s) forum. And then pull the data for those topics only to a page. :D

Well, I had not planned on making a separate page to put all the special topics to, nor do I know if I know how.... If anyone wants to make it, I'll gladly incorporate it into the MOD, edit it if necessary, and give you credit for it. ;)

This is a good idea! You could make a general forum about something, say a video game, and then you could have separate topic types, such as Walkthrough, FAQ, Help Request, etc. or maybe have a technical forums about, say phpBB. Then you could have Support, MOD, Tutorial, etc... Good idea! ( :idea: :!: )

I do have them sometimes.

And I can pull all of a specific type to a box on index. :)

How about pulling all of them to a box on another page? Can you do that? Similar to the Who is Online separate page reached by clicking a link in the Who is Online box.... Then I could just link from the index to that main page... Maybe you can pull the last 5 of a certain type to put on the index, and then click the link for ALL of them? Let me know...

I am considering it to ezPortal, by Smartor, based on permissions.

What do you mean? You plan on encorporating it into EZPortal?

The the code I might write, will pull the post type mods, onto a block on my ezPortal.

Maybe can get some idea from My favourite Mod though, I haven't have time to look through that mod, but the idea is pretty similar

It now contains a more developed Admin Panel and a screen-shot of that Admin Panel. This would be the one to test out. Also, please see here if you are testing it out.

Nobody wants to test? Nobody wants to help? I would have thought that there would be more takers on this MOD.... :cry:
