Show Related Threads when you're making a new thread

  1. The related threads are currently shown at the bottom of a thread. Why not make it show when you're making a new thread? No point of showing the related threads after someone makes a thread.

    Here's an example:
    Show Spoiler

  2. Is that a separate plugin or an edit of the one we currently have?
     
  3. Not sure. I just found that searching on mybb mods page.
     
  4. Could you give me a link? Netbook = torture.
     
  5. It was posted on the spoiler.

    Here it is:

  6. Just realized the system we use isn't a plugin, it's in MyBB core (so it's done through ACP).

    Tagging @[Xanth] to install this, can't on this netbook.

    Also, link was so well hidden in that spoiler.
     
  7. That is a very good idea due to the many duplicate threads being made in the WWE sections regarding spoilers/news.
     
  8. Yes, this would be an excellent idea. No point of having a view related threads after you make the thread lol.
     
  9. Will leave this open for Xanth to confirm the install, not sure if he's here atm.

    Good suggestion once again boss :)
     
  10. It's installed and activated now, go see if it works.
     
  11. Yes, exactly. Too many spoiler/news and everyone just wants to post about it.

    Yah.

    Thanks.
     
  12. This'd keep running search queries every time the person types in the box, which could be a little performance intensive.

    Doubt it'd be enough to kill our server, just pointing out facts.

    Works fine.
     
  14. It's working but it'd nice if you could add the "Check these threads before you create a new one" something like that.

    Didn't thought of that..
     


  15. @[Anonymous] ^^
     
  16. Thought about this to,o but we've got quite a few resources left on this server which surprises me.
     
  17. @[Anonymous] Couldn't you just make it so after you typed in the thread title fully, and clicked into the body portion to type your thread, it would then show you your search query's?
     
  18. Short answer: No.
     
  19. I think it waits a while until the person has stopped typing before searching, rather than checking on every single key, so it should be fine.

    @[Xanth] done.
