This add-on adds support to XenForo for tagging specific posts in a thread so they can be easily navigated to.
This is useful for long threads discussing a topic over a lengthy period of time and many pages. A threadmark allows a user to quickly jump to a specific post which is related to a certain event, date, or whatever is relevant to the thread.
Your forum has a thread discussing a television show spanning dozens of pages. The thread is usually bumped whenever a new episode of the show airs.
A threadmark on the first post related to each episode allows users to quickly jump to the posts about that episode, rather than guessing which page the discussion starts on.
Note: The drop down menu on the Threadmarks button is not visible to guests.
The usual XenForo way - install addon-sidaneThreadmarks.xml through the XenForo Admin.
As with installing, use the addon-sidaneThreadmarks.xml through the XenForo Admin.
Note: Existing threadmarks will not be deleted from your database during upgrades.
The threadmarks menu is positioned beside the pagination links at the top and bottom of threads.
A drop down menu displays the most recent threadmarks.
For threads with many threadmarks, an overlay can be opened to access all of them.
The number of threadmarks to show in the drop down is controlled through permissions (see below).
Posts with a threadmark are clearly labelled.
