Hi RomaamoR, please help me understand exactly what you mean.

The extension lets you feature any post and is not just specific to topics. Did you want to be able to feature a topic and then have a button that links to the latest post in the topic? If so, I can add that functionality for you.

Sorry I'm not 100% sure what exactly you're asking.

Can this display, for example, a poll from a particular topic? Or will it just display the post content?

I've never considered that idea before, I'll look into it when I get a chance. ;)

BUG: If the post being featured is deleted it crashes the entire forum.

Great extension, I love the concept and implementation. However, when I deleted the post that I was featuring using this extension, the entire forum crashed and gave a 1064 MySQL error. It output:

...near '' at line 3.

SQL

SELECT * FROM phpbb_users WHERE user_id =

BACKTRACE

Greatly appreciated if you could fix this issue. Thanks for the extension!

Hi, thank you for your bug report. I have fixed this issue and a new download is available. You shouldn't have to wipe the previous data, just overwrite the files.

Side note: Future improvement is still planned for this extension.

When an extension does not appear in the Extension Manger 99.9% of the time it is because you do not have the correct directory structure

How to install?
No matter what the folder is called, it is not visible in the ACP.
