I saw that this perhaps was developed some years ago as a MOD
, but couldn't seem to find any new versions.
I'm simply (or not so) wanting to post a topic as a link. I'd need to be able set the "topic type" as well so that the link will be positioned where I want and can be identified in the list of topics (similar to a Poll). Does anyone know of something that has been developed?
On the possibility of using shadow topics, if that comes to mind as a possible workaround, the problem is a shadow topic redirect will not retain its topic type. In other words, if I move a topic that has been categorized as "Sticky," and leave a shadow topic behind, the shadow topic link's "topic type" will change to "Normal." That's a problem.
So I would like to request an extension that would somehow give the Admin the option to post a link in place of a topic. I would still need to be able to set the "topic type" of the link so that it would be correctly positioned in my sub-forum. I can imagine a similar workflow to posting a poll i.e. click on the tab "Poll creation" but that is just a thought. Topic "Options" might be a better and more intuitive interface choice.
Always happy to "contribute" for work and good solutions. Thank you!
