I'm not sure if I missed this any where if I did please point it out. It would be nice to be able to assign multiple prefixes to a thread ;D!
Thanks for the quick response! Some sort of tagging system would be nice though ;(.See this post by Kier in response to that suggestion: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/thread-prefixes.19936/page-8#post-256057
Yes, prefixes can be used like tags and vice versa. This is what IP Board is doing and I hate it. Because you can also use prefixes and tags independent from each other. My site will depend heavily on news with different categories, not just user content. I don't want to create 7 forums for separate discussion threads in different categories. I want only ONE forum where I post all the discussion topics to the main news articles (Wordpress) and then assign them categories via prefixes. My news won't be just single category news, but multi-category news, which means I have a problem if I can assign them one prefix only. You probably want now to argue that I could as well drop prefixes entirely and use tags. I will tell you why this is a bad idea:I think that multiple prefixes are a bit of a misnomer. If we were to implement a way to add multiple categorisations for threads, it would be in the form of a tagging system rather than multiple prefixes, which I believe would involve an overly complex user interface.
