XF 1.5 View posts from TO only

#1
Hello,

does anyone knows a possible solution for the following problem:

In our forum we have a lot of travel reports with discussions.
Some of the users would like to have the possibility to view only the posts from the thread owner to have a continous travel report, others like to see the comments and other posts too.

If there would be a possibility to choose in the thread options something like "View TOs posts only" it would be a solution which fits for everyone.

Thanks in advance for all hints, tips and solutions!

You can highlight threads made by the OP using CSS. There's info on here about that on here.

However to do exactly as you want as stated in your post you will need a custom add-on made.

I found only the solution above your post for different threads from TO but nothing to highlight posts from the TO in the same thread - maybe I just tried the wrong search terms :(

Because the search doesn't show the full posts in the result - all posts should be readable in full length as if they are foolowing directly each other so that you can read the complete travel report without interuptions from other posts.
Are all the posts from the travel report thread at the top? Or is it an ongoing thread many pages long with interspersed posts from other members?

You got it - the second one. We have many members who are writing live during the vacation - that's why there are many comments and question in between.

Wouldn't it be a little difficult to understand the posts when the replies are to questions that are not able to be seen?

Only if the TO answers questions inside the chapters of his travel report which were raised in the posts in between, I guess.

But anyway, the choice to read either all posts or those from the TO only should be possible for the reader and not forced by anyone.
