You are correct that this is a bug, I'm not sure about the correct way to fix this. I'm not in favor of forcing it to a normal post for everyone (including those that have the permissions in the new forum), a way around this I can't think of without going AJAX/javascript.
So maybe this is the best fix for the time being and solve this in a better manner when I'm rewriting it.

I took a few things into consideration when patching it for myself.
  1. The MOD is using the reply template where even users with proper authority don't get the type radio buttons and altering this seems like it would be a major change in the way the MOD is implemented
  2. Implementing this with the new topic template instead of the reply template would drop the usually useful topic review
  3. I think the chances of a quoted to new topic thread actually needing to be a sticky/annoucement are pretty small, it wouldn't happen often enough where simply promoting the topic afterwards would be a burden
As I sit here now and compare a quote to new topic interface to a normal new topic interface I see a few more points.
  1. Along with no radio options for stickies/annoucements, there is also no field to have a sticky which expires. Such functionality could come in handy
  2. Users with the proper authority are presented with a "Lock Topic" checkbox in the the MODs UI which doesn't work in the way one might expect, it will lock the source thread instead of the new thread
  3. Poll creation isn't available in the MODs UI, another thing that could come in handy

joebert,

I'll respond to your last post in this forum. It looks like I've found a couple of issues I haven't thought of that might cause a pretty big rewrite of the MOD. Therefore lets go to the dev topic and keep this one clean for any support issues :).

After installing this mod (version 3.0.1), in ACP/Styles I am getting this error: -
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /adm/index.php on line 149: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /language/en/acp/styles.php:1)
Same for lines 151,152, 153

I am unable to find where I have gone wrong.

In styles/prosilver/template/viewtopic_body.html, I find two instances of IF postrow.U_QUOTE, and am unsure of which to change to ELSEIF, or if both are to be changed.

I would appreciate any clue as to how I can fix this.

What editor do you use? There are two causes. Make sure that there is nothing before:

Code: Select all

<?php
This includes white lines and spaces. If that is the make make user that you use a real plain text editor and that the file encoding is set to UTF-8 W/O BOM.

Edits are always listed from the top of the file to the bottom. The first find is the first occurrence of that line in the file, the second find is the first occurrence of that line after the first find.

great mod...works perfectly.

However, I was REALLY REALLY hoping that since it creates a new topic that the "Poll Creation" would be available after click the "quote to new topic" button...this would be perfect for my site.

I realize that "Poll Creation" does appear after you post the new topic and go back to edit it. However, I would need to it be there initially when creating the "New Topic". Like a normal "New Topic".

any ideas on how to get that to happen? thanks very much!

Aslo, is there a way to have the user "quote to new topic" and start a new topic in a specific forum, that we can specify, instead of a new topic in the current forum?

thank you

Actually I've created an update some time ago that could do that, though it has been rejected from the MODDB and haven't had the time yet to fix it. Besides that I'm still planning on rewriting the whole MOD to be better incorporated with the phpBB core.
I might do this, soon though as this isn't a really big MOD ;).

I see on your website that you have the mod listed as 2.0 - is this a RC or is it a ready to use mod? Just wondering as I really like the functionality added by the Quote to new topic mod.

Yes there is a 2.0.x, but its not the one posted on my site ;). I'm going to submit this version to the MODDB as soon phpBB 3.0.6 is released because the MOD is written on that version and some of the finds are only within 3.0.6.

And there it is :).
Make sure that you un-install the old version of this MOD completely before updating to 2.0.0 :geek:
