Topic Preview displays a short excerpt of text from the first post in a tooltip while the mouse hovers over a topic’s title. It supports displaying user avatars, last post's text, is highly customizable and comes with multiple themes.

  • Let your visitors peek at what's inside a topic before they click on it
  • Admin options to display user avatars and text previews from the first and last posts
  • Admin option to set the amount of text shown in the preview
  • Admin option to define BBcodes whose contents you want removed from the topic preview
  • Admin options to customize the appearance and assign different themes to board styles
  • Ships with four themes, additional custom themes can be added using css files
  • No theme option, i.e.: native browser tooltip (does not support avatars or last posts)
  • User option allows users to disable topic previews
  • Previews are aware of browser window top/bottom edges and are responsive
  • The last word in the topic preview is not cut off and will be followed by an ellipsis
  • BBcode tags and URL links are removed for a cleaner text-only appearance
  • Smileys are displayed as text :)
  • Supports right-to-left languages
  • Does not significantly impact server load (no additional db queries)
  • Built-in support for "Precise Similar Topics", "Recent Topics" and "Top Five" extensions
  • Multiple languages are supported. View the pre-installed localizations.

If tests are passing, this extension is fully functioning and compatible with the latest versions of phpBB and PHP.

This extension is a port of my MOD from phpBB 3.0.x.
