Solved Move Topic- (leaving a shadow marker, missing option)

Post by Rabbita on June 14th 2011, 4:28 am

Hi,
I'm sorry as I'm sure this has been asked before. I was not having success with the search results.

On another forum I run we have the option of leaving behind a "topic moved" link/marker, that takes you to whatever forum the link was relocated to. Do we have this option here? I am not finding it, but I could've easily overlooked it. Thank you,

Bitta

I don't think it's possible. I own two froums and I tried to move and didn't see a shadow option.

Thank you for taking the time to check on this for me. I will assume then this feature isn't offered here.

On my forum, there is a box you can check to leave a link.

This is what it says to the right of the box: "Leave shadow topic in old forum."

Oh really? Let me go look again... to the right of which box though? I'll be looking to see if I locate it.

**can't find it >.<**

It is on the screen that loads after you press the Move button.

I go into my mod panel or select the move function from the bottom left. This takes me to a confirmation screen where I select where I want to move it. The only 2 options I have at this point is to pick a forum and move it, or cancel. Where could the shadow topic button be hiding? Perhaps its only available on certain styles of forums?
This is all I got.

Hi, this forum is running on phpBB 3 and there is a shadow topic box. Take a look at this screenshot:

Solved Re: Move Topic- (leaving a shadow marker, missing option)

Post by Rabbita on June 16th 2011, 8:32 pm

I am on phpbb2 forum.

I looked in the template codes, and while I don't understand what the coding means, under the mod/move topic coding I see something about leaving a shadow topic. It seems like it should be possible.

Does anyone that has a shadow topic option want to copy and paste the code for the move post section?

This is my coding :

<form action="{S_MODCP_ACTION}" method="post">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td><span class="nav"><a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}">{L_INDEX}</a>{NAV_CAT_DESC}</span></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table class="forumline" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="4">
<tr>
<th class="thHead" height="25"><b>{MESSAGE_TITLE}</b></th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="row1">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1">
<tr>
<td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td align="center">
<span class="gen">{L_MOVE_TO_FORUM} {S_FORUM_SELECT}


<!-- BEGIN switch_leave_shadow -->
<input name="move_leave_shadow" type="checkbox">{L_LEAVESHADOW}

<!-- END switch_leave_shadow -->

{MESSAGE_TEXT}</span>

{S_HIDDEN_FIELDS}
<input class="mainoption" type="submit" name="confirm" value="{L_YES}"><input class="liteoption" type="submit" name="cancel" value="{L_NO}">
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td></td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

@ Sig:
And you said that you DO have a shadow topic option right?

Your code looked the same to me, but I copied and pasted it to mine and still no luck.

Hi,

The leave shadow option is for topics that have a replay.

I assume that means it's not applicable to my problem. I have no idea what "have a replay" means.
So... then, any idea where I find how to make an option to leave a marker for my moved topic?

Hi,

It basiclly means if no one has answered to your topic you wont have that option.
No.
But you can write 2 posts and the option will appear.

So if the topic has no replies, then the checkbox will not appear?

Oh!! That is so good to know. I was just setting up the forum and running with test posts, all the features. Of course that makes sense as I haven't replied to any of my own test posts.

Thank you so much Nera for clearing this up! I love easy answers.
