This is a great idea for a MOD... I think I'll make this my first MOD... ;) Can you tell me what you would call the extra post, so I can get an idea as to what other people would call it (and as what to refer to it as)... Thanks.

okay, well basically what i am looking to do is differntiate between news for different games on my site. I run 8 different forums (one for each) but i want the news to be centralized. Ive considered a sub-forum but it won't work with my portal. So basically, what i need is the following.
BF 1942
CCR
CS
Q3
T2
UT2K3
and one more
Computers

THanks 4 taking this on!
If u want to discuss it more, msn me at dnoyeb2002@hotmail.com (im on right now)

some non-specific custom thread titles:
Game (some threads on my board are 'party' games) like a thread called "name that movie" or "This or That"
Off-Topic obvious
Important I find myself posting thread titles starting with Important: blah blah blah for things that i don't need staying at the top of the page
Reminder
Warning

I dunno, just thinking.[/b]

Great idea for the mod.
Would you please let us all know here when it's possible to download?!
:D

And could those non-specific custom thread titles be customizable for every admin to set up their own titles? That would be GREAT!

OK... since I'm not exactly familiar with writing MODs, the customization would have to be done before or during the MOD, by replacing a certain word with the word of your choice.... The next version should be easier to customize, I just have to learn a little more. ;)

I'll be sure to let you know the outcome and where to download as soon as I know. :D
