This way you will be able to add more common prefixes such as :

  • [Solved] Solved
  • [Progress] In progress
  • [Accepted] Accepted

1. Installation
Go to Administration Panel ► Modules ► Javascript codes management and create a new JavaScript code.

Title : Your choice
Placement : In all the pages
Paste the code below and submit.
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery('#modif_topic_title').after('<input type="button" value="LABEL" onclick="set_solved(this.form.elements[\'modif_topic_title\'],\'[CONTENT]\')" style="display: inline;" id="button_label">');

2. Modifications
LABEL : is the content you want to show members so they know what that button is for
Note : The label and content don't have to be the same

[CONTENT] : This is the content that will be added to the title when the button is clicked

Exclamation Attention : if you need to use characters like (') or quotes ("), you must use the escape character (\) before them
example: he said "hello"
he said "hello"

3. Customization
Go to Administration Panel ► Display ► Colors ►CSS stylesheet and add the following code

#button_label {

You can replace /*style*/ with any of the properties below to customize the button style.

  • color: #000;: edit the color of the text
  • background-image: url('LINK');: add a background image
  • background-color: #000;: edit the color of the background
  • border: 1px solid #000:: you can edit the fullness of the line (1px), the style (solid, dashed) and the color (#000)
  • box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #000: you can add a shadow in the three dimensions (1px, 1px, 1px) and the color
  • border-radius: 2px;: you can round the corners of the button
  • opacity: 0.7: with a value between 0 and 1 you can make it a bit transparent

How does it work?
You just have to click on a button and the content associated will be added in the title

Can I add more than one button?
Sure, just add the code more than one time, editing it with different values

Can I add more than one prefix in the title?
Sure, you just have to click on the buttons and the prefixes will be added one by one

How to remove a prefix?
Just click again on the button you used to add it
