  • Parent/Previous post # in header

    How can I put the parent post's number/link in the postbit?

    I want to have a (clickable) "Original Post: #XX" in the posts' headers, like all my old BBS programs did. So on reply posts you can click to (jump to or) pop-up the original.

    Activate to display Re: in the thread title. You can do this in the vbulletin options section. You can modify the phrase Re: to be displayed as 'Original post:'.

    Admin Control Panel > vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > Message Posting and Editing Options > Automatically Quote Post / Thread Title : YES

    Setting this to 'Yes' will automatically fill the title field of new posts with either the thread or the parent post title, prefixed by 'Re: '.

    The user may specify their own title if they want to do so.


    Phrases are modified through the Admin Control Panel > Languages & Phrases > Phrase Manager > and modify the phrase: reply_prefix

      Actually, I already have that activated (guess it's been a while since I worked on the board...). What I was asking for was a clickable Post # that would go to the original post, not the title text.

      I want to have a link in the header for me to put "Read Original" or "Original Post #XX", and have that link jump to or pop up the original msg.

      Thanks Floris.
