    This add-on adds support to XenForo for tagging specific posts in a thread so they can be easily navigated to.

    This is useful for long threads discussing a topic over a lengthy period of time and many pages. A threadmark allows a user to quickly jump to a specific post which is related to a certain event, date, or whatever is relevant to the thread.

    Example usage
    Your forum has a thread discussing a television show spanning dozens of pages. The thread is usually bumped whenever a new episode of the show airs.

    A threadmark on the first post related to each episode allows users to quickly jump to the posts about that episode, rather than guessing which page the discussion starts on.

    Demo

    Note: The drop down menu on the Threadmarks button is not visible to guests.

    Installation
    The usual XenForo way - install addon-sidaneThreadmarks.xml through the XenForo Admin.

    Upgrading
    As with installing, use the addon-sidaneThreadmarks.xml through the XenForo Admin.

    Note: Existing threadmarks will not be deleted from your database during upgrades.

    Using threadmarks
    The threadmarks menu is positioned beside the pagination links at the top and bottom of threads.

    A drop down menu displays the most recent threadmarks.

    For threads with many threadmarks, an overlay can be opened to access all of them.

    The number of threadmarks to show in the drop down is controlled through permissions (see below).

    Posts with a threadmark are clearly labelled.

    This fulfills a need we've had for a long time at my forum, and it does it very elegantly. I did have to edit the stylesheets and templates to get it to integrate well, but other than that I'm very satisfied.

    Love this, thanks.

    A unique feature which is something that should have been made as an add-on before now, but is great to see.

    Liking that you can restrict it to just allow the threadstarter to add threadmarks to avoid abuse.
