Prefix Menus:
forumListPrefixMenu.png GlobalPrefixList.png
  • On the forum listing/index, there are menu items to view all threads prefixed with each prefix. These are limited to the prefix groups you enable (by editing the group in the admin panel).
  • This can be toggled on or off with an option in the admin panel.

  • Clicking one of the prefixes loads a new page that displays the threads with that prefix, regardless of the node it's in (respects user permissions).
Forum View Prefix Filter:

  • Makes it more convenient to filter the threads by prefix on the forum view. This can be done in XenForo by default but we moved the functionality to the top of the page and out of a drop down.

Last Post Info - Thread Prefix:

  • Display the prefix of the thread with the latest post for each node.
  • This can be toggled on or off with an option in the admin panel.

Font Awesome:

  • You can place Font Awesome icons within prefixes. We check to see if Font Awesome is already included in the page before we include our instance, so no need to worry about too much extra loading.
  • This can be turned off completely with options.
Watched Threads - Prefix Filtering:

  • Your users will be able to filter their watched threads list by each prefix.
Ignore Prefixes
  • In the account -> preferences page users will be able to ignore prefixes.

Latest reviews

A must have add-on for any forum, essential!
Does the job really well, easy to use and straight forward.
I absolutely love this add-on. Off-topic threads use an off-topic prefix... Those who would prefer to only view on-topic threads, now can. The prefix filter drop-downs on the forum list page, throughout the forums... Awesome. Thanks kindly for putting this together.
Biased review because I commissioned it, but it also means it's been tested on AVForums for some time and it works perfectly giving us the functionality we wanted to make the most of prefixes, and also fix the issue of the prefix not being shown in the Latest Post box.
I scoured the Xenforo forums looking for prefix related suggestions from people and we implemented the best of them.
Works very well.
