FYI I did up this guide on using prefixes from a forum member's point of view (i.e. user rather than admin)
http://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?topic=482.0

Diego feel free to copy it all, or steal the images or whatever, if they are of any use to you.

For that matter - anyone can if they like, if it helps explain it to their members.

Cheers

If they have permission to edit the post then they can change the prefix. Otherwise no.

All good mate - life gets in the way of these things I know.
It'll come when it comes, but it really is one of the most useful (and most used) mods on my forum.  Great work.

Is there a way, to show the prefix within the recent posts?

I am working with post prefixes in the forum, but unfortunately the prefix aren´t shown there. So it get´s a little bit confusing.

I tried to edit the Boardindex.template.php for my theme, but nothing worked.

Do you mean the recent posts in the boardindex?

Yes, exactly.

In our forum we have 2 subboards with exactly the same topic title within the subboards. (It´s a forum for a sim racing league with 2 divisions). In the recent posts section at the board index we want to see at first sight, which post belongs to which subboard. That´s why we are using the postprefix.

So the topic titles look like this:

[Prefix 1] Topic Name
[Prefix 2] Topic Name

Within the recent posts it is both shown as
Topic Name
Topic Name
and therefore you can´t recognize at the first sight, which topic belongs to which subboard.

Fun Fact: When i opend a new topic, the prefix is shown within the recent posts. When somebody answered to a post, the prefix is gone  ???

It’s because only the first post (the topic) gets a prefix.

Ah alright. Can I change it anyhow, so that every post will get a prefix?

Or is it possible to show not the post title but the topic title within the recent topics?
