    Allows complete thread title control. Change case, remove certain characters and more.

    (Example of Options page)


    External File:

    The External File option allows the use of a PHP file that can control the final outcome of the thread title.

    Here's an example that will remove the exclamation character:


    // get title
    $title $this->get('title');

    if (
    substr_count($title'!') > 0)
    $patterns[0] = '/\!/';
    $replacements[0] = '';
    $title preg_replace($patterns$replacements$title);

    // set title

    Click the Discussion tab for other examples.


    This is used for languages that require a Multibyte PHP code.

    1. Download titlecontrol_v1.7.zip and unzip it.
    2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
    3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
    4. Upload the addon-TitleControl_v1.7.xml file.
    5. Click the Install Add-on button.
    External File:

    To find the environment path add this to your URL while viewing the tools tab:


    Locate the "DOCUMENT_ROOT" and copy/paste to External File field in the Options page, also add the /misc/TitleControl.php.

    How it works:

    When a new thread or existing thread title is saved, the Title Control add-on will apply changes to the thread title.

    Great add-on. Does exactly as advertised with minimal of fuss... makes the core Title Control option completely redundant. This should be implemented in the Core.

    This add-on really takes thread title control to the next level. Andy is right there with assistance and support when you need it. Once people get into it I imagine there will be a number of control files available so you won't have to come up with them yourself.
