This addon is maintained. For clarification, while I do not have the time to give support for installations and bug reports for this addon (because there are no known bugs and it's working perfectly on my forum AVForums), I will be updating it with maintenance releases (as and when they are needed) which current license holders will be able to download. So no personal support, but yes, maintenance releases.
Also I am vetting who I sell licenses to, so if you wish to purchase a license, please click the purchase link and then send me a message as per the instructions in the product description. Thank you :)

Prefix Menus:


  • 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).
  • Clicking one of the prefixes leads 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.
Ignore Prefixes


  • Threads with specific prefixes can be ignored via the user preferences
  • Threads are hidden in the last post information and in the thread lists
  • Watched threads and post update notifications continue as normal

I've given a prefix to most of the content on my site and use this to allow users to globally the prefixes from the forum index page, as well as giving them the option of ignoring content based on prefix. Highly recommended.
Excellent addon for forums with many prefixes. Support is top quality, and it is normal condition when you have addon from Stuart Wright and Xon.
