Installed perfectly! Although no guide to subsilver? I adapted it to the same style of the who is online / browsers list though, but no idea how to list the topics horizontally instead of vertically?

Had a couple of quick questions for the author or anyone who is currently using this mod. Can you select the number of "similar" posts that are shown? Also, how does it determine which posts are similar? Is this automatic or do they have to be manually added in the ACP?

As far as I can see from the install instructions (someone correct me if I got it wrong...):
It searches all other topic subjects that match the title in a percentage more that 50% and displays the first 5 results..
If you like to change the number of posts you need to make a tiny change in the sql result. Also you don't have to do anything from the ACP; it is done automatically... ;)
My mods in MODDB:
Add Homepage link in header - Change user activity post limit - Post number in viewtopic
If you need support click on the support tab there and post your question.
Do not PM me - chances of viewing my PMs are way thinner than viewing the support question in the customization DB...

Can someone post a screenshot, please? Who wants to blindly download and install a mod without knowing how it will look after all of the work is done? It's also important to know how it's supposed to look so you can better confirm a correct installation.

Thanks.

tas2580 this is an outstanding mod! :P

I'm adding a screenshot of my forums to show others how helpful this mod can be to your members. I made a few adjustments and got creative with where it was being displayed and also added some Google Adsense for an even more beneficial implementation.

Takes 3-4 minutes to install. Very simplistic by design but that is all I really needed.
Thank you very much!

P.S. If this screenshot is not enough, you can browse the topic pages of http://www.AstroSafari.com for a demo.

Thank you Tobi for your great Mod(s) :) :lol:
I've got a problem:
The Similar Topics Mod won't we displayed...
My Forum doesn't got so much topics & posts...
Is this needed for the mod to display at least 5 topics ?
I use the style AeroBlue ...
And yes, i made the template changes also for AeroBlue...
Must i activate the mod ? Because there is a check, if .similar is filled... <!-- IF .similar -->... Code ... <!-- END IF -->
Thx in advance!

Nice one!

How would we go about making the background alternate to separate the list a little better?
