Duplicate topic

Post by eunaumtenhoid »

Does anyone know or could do an extension that:
duplicate topics from various forums by creating a new topic in another forum with some information only?

example:
get information such as topic title, image of a specific bbcode, forum name (original), topic author username, topic link (original), topic attribute name (extension) and topic prefix (extension)

With all this information he would create this new topic, but displaying only the above information, can you understand?

summarizing by creating a topic in certain forums of the site it would create another presentation topic to the original topic with image and information

Duplicating topics may confuse new members.
How new member may differentiate between original ones and the others?
If the new summarized topic generated in a specific place, will it includes any replies? or just one post with info you mentioned?
Duplicate contents is not good from search engines point of view.
Just thinking my friend.
Would you like to know more about ISLAM ?

Have you looked at Duplicating a topic?
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Did you have a look at the shadow topics? They exist in another forum and point to the real topic.
