How to insert a post before the first post

Post by steven2 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 11:38 am

Hi!

I have a number of forum threads that I would like to link back to my main site. Basically, I would like to insert a post before the current first post that says: More info and updates on this topic at (link).

Is there a way to do this?

Thank you!

Posts are displayed in date/time order so to be able to display a post before the first post you would need to change the post time/date to be earlier than the first post.

This extension should help you do that - https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... post_time/

Or post an announcement or a sticky.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Actually, posts are displayed in an order selected by the user - by Author, Subject, time, etc. So there is no way to know what post will be "first" for any specific user.
