I, personally, wouldn't have a problem with this, so long as it is implemented with an enable/disable setting on a per-forum basis with the default setting set to "disable" the feature. I can see how this could come in handy for some people, depending on how they use the forums on their board, and therefore I think it can be justified as a feature of vanilla phpBB; however, I do not think that it should be the default behavior.

Not needed. Don't see the point in it. Better off as an extension, I think.

I would love to see this come as it would be handy :)

Why so many negative points? We only have to add few lines to achieve this and it can be optional in ACP. So why not? It is definitely much better then options like "Max characters per post" :)

Edit:
In viewtopic.php find

Code: Select all

$i = ($store_reverse) ? $sql_limit - 1 : 0;
After add

Code: Select all

if ($start != 0) {
	$i = 0;
	$post_list[$i] = $topic_data['topic_first_post_id'] ;
	$i = ($store_reverse) ? $sql_limit : $i + 1;
}

That's exactly my point of view. Such a small feature, why not just throw in the extra few lines of code to make it toggleable in the ACP? It's not big enough to be "extension-worthy" in my opinion, and I've seen situations where it could actually come in handy (such as on support forums where the first post containing all of the information for the original question could be useful for reference on every page of the topic... wait a second, does that sound a tad familiar? ;) ).

Just my two cents.

It also good for game forums where you can always see the rules.

As I keep reading this I keep thinking I had gotten the wrong idea.

What, more exactly, is this idea about? Seems like the one liner didn't help me understand

The point is to display the first post of the topic on every page of topic. For example, I create topic with question and all other posts are answers on my question. So it is very useful to display first post with question on every page of topic on top.

Oh!
In that case I'm neutral. But I'm unable to place a neutral vote after I have voted so I can't undo that negative vote.

I think this is probably a useful feature for specific kinds of boards but I'm not sure that's enough to make it a built in feature.
