Uploaded v1.2 - March 28th, 2017
o Added admin option to control where the "Our Important Topics" menu entry is located.
o Added permission to view the important topic list.
o Added code to view important topic list if permission to mark topics is present.



@Portugal:  Hopefully, this update addresses your request adequately....

Last night before I went to bed, I figured out why I couldn't read the top menu labels.....  They hadn't been inserted into the array yet!!!!  AARGH!!!  Turns out the function to add stuff to the top menu gets executed WAAAAY after the modification settings stuff does....  Anyways, it's been worked around, so this feature now works....  Gives me a few ideas on how to rearrange the top menu in a mod....  O:)

Another question, to translate this to other languages? What files i need to work?
All language strings are held within the language_english.xml file inside the mod.  Copy the file and change the filename you are adding the strings to.  For example, change this:
Code: (Find) [Select]
<file name="$languagedir/index.english.php">to this:
Code: (Replace) [Select]
<file name="$languagedir/index.french-utf8.php" error="skip">Yes, the error="skip" is important, as  with that tidbit present, the mod won't attempt to install those changes in non-existant files!  Translate anything to the right of the equal sign on lines that begin with $txt.  Once complete, attach the translation to this thread for inclusion into the next version.  Thanks!

Uploaded v1.3 - April 6th, 2017
o Added temporary theme load hook to capture all top menu items.
o Moved buffer hook to Modification Settings code as temporary hook.



@Everybody:  By moving the buffer hook into the modification settings code, the forum should help the performance of the forum.  It's one of those after-thought things that I thought I'd address, since I haven't had much time to much of anything else....

Thanks @dougiefresh i just say "Great" work made fr you.

Now just need a litle improvment the translation as i did dont works.... (i know its a a bad notice), but i already works a bit on it and i discovered whats the problem... and the problem is the word "tópico" (the "ó") i quit the ó and just use the o (without ´and it works), so just replace the "tópico" by "topico" and it works... and just other modification is the "portuguese_pt" instead of "portuguese". Sorry for the inconvenience... work team has this kind of situations :).

Thanks for your great work... really a valuable effort made for you!

Regards
Portugal

Question...

How can I display this in a specific place on my theme, or in a simpleportal block?

I want to use this to display one random (important) topic in a "ssi boardnews" style. Any suggestion on where to start?

You need to create a forum link with ?action=important in it wherever you plan on placing the link.  So, if your forum is at hxxp://www.duh.com/forum, then the link would read hxxp://www.duh.com/forum/index.php?action=important

This mod isn't designed to function like that.  But if you're insistant on using/abusing the mod to do so, then you need to call ITM_Topics_Count to get the number of topics; then ITM_Get_Topics to get the topic information, which returns an array of important topics.  From there, you can generate a random number between 0 and the number ITM_Topics_Count returned, and process that element of the array.

EDIT:  I guess I can write an SSI function to get able to get a random "important" topic....
