Proxy Link-Forum 1.1.1

Compatible XF 1.x versions

License
MIT Licence
Visible branding
No
Converts link forums into proxies for actual forums, allowing post information, post counts, etc from the destination forum to be visible when viewing the link-forum.

Note; only works as-expected for destinations which are a Forum (not a page or anything else). Does not have much in the way of input validation.

To a front-end user, a link forum can be made nearly indistinguishable to a normal forum.

Performance Impact
This causes 1 extra query if there are link-forums on the forum-list page.

I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade to install this addon.

Latest reviews

Very powerful tool, and very glad we found it! We are able to pull forums from various parts of the board and provide centralized index pages showing link forums that look like real forums. Basically, forums can exist in more than one spot on your board :)
