Thread Header Text

Post by Deleted User 78 » Wed Sep 11, 2019 12:43 pm

@LeroyBrown, can threads be given a title text body? IOW, more than just a title, but the initiator doesn't have to put the article in the first post, but in a header?
(do you see what I'm asking? I don't know where else to put this question)

I'm not sure I follow. Are you asking if there is some way to display the first post differently then the posts that follow?

Ah, you DID respond!

No, I think what you would have to do is expand the title field so that the article text could be displayed above all the posts.

I won't expect you to be able to do anything here, or you would probably have set it up like that from the beginning.

Thanks again for all your help.

Oh, you want the tittle to be sticky.

That can easily be done in CSS. When tangle works on our finally look and feel he should be able to do something like that.

No, that was me. My advice was to ignore everyone's advice and do what is right for you and your family. lol.

The short answer is that threading it isn't really practical for a variety of reasons. The only thing that ties one post to another is quoting. And that can be done across topics or even across forums.

What I am working on (and failing miserably right now) is a button that will find all quotes associated with a post and break them out on a new page. Ideally, I'd like to be able to work up and down the tree to get all posts in a chain of quotes and display them together on that page. It should make it easier for people who prefer threading.
