Why can't we make global topics with Xenforo? Is this a planned feature for the future?
You mean like the old vb announcements system? In XenForo there is Notices, and it works pretty well as a replacement for that.
No, I mean like phpbb's "Global Topic" option. This makes it so that a topic can be displayed on all forum lists. Sort of like an uber sticky.
Not really looking to post a notice, sort of wanted to keep it in the forum list :/
I really don't see them implementing this feature but I could be wrong.
What's your reasoning?
I've tried to do it too but couldn't. Pretty inconvenient.
Now pushing to get this added
Bringing this up.
Would really like to see a global topic feature added
Have you asked in the add-on requests forum? It may be something someone could easily put together?
No, I haven't, I will though! Thanks for the comment!
Bringing this up, nobody wants this?
I actually searched the forums for a solution would be nice to have this.. Not everyone visits all the forums, i have users that visit a specific forum only so having a global sticky would be nice to get their attention. (The sticky is a long term unlike notices). like for rules or a contest or something.
Precisely I would love to see something like this implemented, or even something like VB or IPB's global announcement thing would be nice
I thought you had to install a Hack for vB
This would be very nice to have.
Why not ? Isn't this what notices are for ?
Wasn't aware they supported hacking VB
Notices are dismissible, and I meant like the view_forum within the thread list. The announcements would be there till it was removed
Not if you don't allow them to be dismissed.
I know that mate, but I think the point is being missed: I am looking for a global topic system. I can make notices as much as I like, but it's much more convenient having a topic globally displayed to allow discussion; much quicker also.
I appreciate that.
A global topic still needs to be clicked on to be able to read and respond though.
You can do that with a notice - just link to the actual thread.
In the absence of a global topic feature, it's better than nothing.
