Copy posts to other forums automatically

Post by scott wray »

Hello.

I am looking for an extension that will automatically copy a thread created across multiple forums.

Example:

User submits an application to our community - phpbb creates a post on the application forum.
phpbb then automatically copies that post into a separate forum(s) making two(or more) total posts.

I am confused.

Your title is to copy posts but you are asking to

. As phpBB does not have threads I am guessing that you mean topics.

Would all posts/topics be copied to the same forum/topic - or will some go to one forum/topic and others to another forum/topic.

When asking for an extension it helps if you can be clear as to what you want, and why you want it as sometimes there are alternative ways to achieve what you are asking for.

Hello!

Thank you for the quick responds.

I am sorry - when i say thread i did mean topic!! wrong word =)

I am using an 'application' extension on my phpbb forums that automatically creates a single post with their on a single forum when the user presses submit.

I have it set up so that the topic created by the application is only visible to the poster & the leadership team.

What I am looking to do is have that post automatically copied into a second forum that is only visible to leadership group.

David, he is using this extension to accomplish that function. Not sure how to accomplish his request to auto copy the topic though.
