Topic Solved

Previous topic - Next topic


thanks for the specifics; helpful.  I just cannot locate that 'interface'.  I tried finding it through the cPanel but nothing.


in your cpanel there should be a link to phpadmin somewhere


Yeah, i was lost in the file manager; i had overlooked that one in the cPanel.  Again, thanks. 

I'll try the topic solved mod again and see if that works the second time around.


Well, i can post again--even after re-installing the topic solver--but i don't see any new buttons or check-boxes to mark it solved/un-solved.  At least it's allowing posts.


after installed you have to go to your admin then go to forum then boards...
for the boards that you want to allow people to mark topics as solved click on modify for that board
make sure to checkmark
Topic Solved Board:
Enables the Topic Solved feature in the board

you'll do this to each and every board that you want this available on

then at the bottom of posts in those boards you should see a button that says Topic Solved, in with the other buttons move topic, set topic sticky, ect...

if you still do not see it, are you using the default theme, if not change to default theme and see if it shows up.... if it does then you will need to use the parse button on the mod page and do all the theme edits to your custom themes
when installing mods, make sure that you check the boxes for the themes you want them to install on....
if it still isn't showing up on the default theme then it didn't install correctly, make sure there are no errors when installing the mod


Yeah, i tried on all the themes (and default).  No joy.

Do i need to re-install to find the parse button for the mod?


The boards here at simplemachines.org have a simple 'topic solved/not solved' text button. That would be much simpler as different themes use different icons which are not obvious to some users.

Topic solved / Topic not solved says exactly what you want.


It's odd.

I thought I replied that I solved it.

Oh well. It's working well now thanks to the help here.



Everything was fine until I created a new board in the same category as my others.

New error:

Field 'topic_solved' doesn't have a default value
File: /home/userFolder/public_html/myDomain.com/Sources/Subs-Boards.php
Line: 784

I went through the SMF db and found the topic is_solved entry and verified the default value is NULL.   

I was able to just go into the boards directory of the db and duplicate an existing board (there weren't any posts in it yet anyway) and then just change its name and description.  That seemed to work, but I do not think that's a good solution as a long-term practice.

@rcane The attached image of @shadav it works well only that you also have to apply the same procedure to "smf_boards" with that, you should no longer suffer more problems the next time you want to use this modification.
