Topic categories mod? eg. tag thread with [sports] or [news]

Post by securitynut » Wed Jun 13, 2007 4:38 am

Some sites offer users the ability to make a category for their posts, eg [sports] or [news]...

I am wondering if anyone is working on a MOD that allows users to choose a category for their topic, which it is then 'tagged' as, so users can tell at a glance what it is about and also click an option on the forum index to view all topics in that category?

Here is an example: http://forums.somethingawful.com/forumd ... ?forumid=1 See how the threads have different category images next to them? I don't know if you can search for all of a particular category though...

Any help would be appreciated!

Edit: something just like this: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &sk=t&sd=a except without the external search thing. I would rather it just check the DB for all topics with the same tag and display them instead.

Those are just topic icons.

Yeah there are a lot with image icon and that's ok, but the problem is that icon is selectable only by mod and admin and NOT users...
