Announcements like IPB's
« on: June 13, 2006, 01:33:57 PM »
I searched and found a similar request over a year ago, but it had no responses. 

I'm interested in seeing if when starting a Topic is started it is also started on other Boards of choice.  For me this would only be an Admin feature. 

As I am posting, much like when I check to have Replies sent to my email, I could check the other Boards this Topic would be posted.

I'd be interested in this, as a mod.

There are some things that I'd like to post in more than one board, as well.

It was your topic that I saw which didn't get a response.   :)

Yeah, I figured. :)

I thought that it was the "Global Announcement and Super Sticky" mod that did the same thing. I found that after I posted my request. So, I decided to drop it.

But, I never actually got around to using that mod, so I'm not sure if that was it or not. But, it doesn't seem be available anymore, anyway.

IPB has this feature in My Controls, if you are an administrator, (at least in version 2.1.6), that lets you make an announcement that appears in every category listing. Here are some screenshots:

I don't know how complicated this would be, but if you could get it done, I would be so thankful.

Note: I made the above screenshot from an actual IPB powered forum. Whatever is in those pictures may be copyrighted by IPS.

I certainly wouldn't mind something like this.

Every forum software I have used before SMF has had this feature

I'd also like it. It'd be very helpful, indeed.

I believe the global sticky mod already offers some of this functionality for SMF ;)

I don't know what that mod does, because I never got it running sucessfully.  I would probably use it if it I could get it applied to my forum.

I believe the "Global Announcements & Super Sticky" mod was removed along time ago. If it's there, I can't seem to find it.

I believe it was made by Anguz and is available for download on his site

One question.  Who can add global announcements?  Only admin or forum moderator?  Also what is the best way to abbreviate GlobalAnnouncements?

I think that it should be determined by a new permission. That would solve that problem at least. And as for abbreviating it, GlobAnnounce, is that good?
