Mark Topic

Mark Topic is an application that will let you and your members mark topics with a badge. This is useful for e.g. support forums (mark the topic as solved/fixed), commerce forums (mark the topic as sold/bought), and story forums (mark the topic as a true/false story). You can create different markers for different forums, and chose which member groups are allowed to use the different markers.

After a topic is marked, a badge will appear next to or after the topic title when viewing the forum and when viewing the topic. You can customize the background color, text color, and the text of the badge, as well as choose to display the badge before or after the topic title. It is also possible to automatically lock or unlock the topic, or move it to another forum, when it is marked and unmarked.

Administrators are always able to mark and unmark all topics, and you may chose which moderator groups have permission to do the same. If a member group is allowed to use a marking, members of that group will be able to mark and unmark their own topics in that forum. Each marker may have unique permissions, even if several markers exists in the same forum.

New in version 2.0.0 is that you may now choose between multiple markers when marking a topic, if multiple markers are available. The markers will be presented in a small popup window, making it easier than ever to choose the correct marker. Another new feature is that notifications will be sent to the topic authors (if enabled by the members) when their topics are marked and/or unmarked.

Simple little application which allows you to mark a topic either complete or anything else you designate. You can configure a range of markers at your choice.

You can designate the particular group – site team, for instance, which you want to be able to apply the markers – and you can designate which groups can see the markers


I see there have been 59 download so far and I'm the first person to leave any kind of review. What's going on?

Seems to be very well supported by the developers well – and it's free.

Why on earth is it free? I have no idea – but at least if they getting it for free, people might at least have the decency to give a review and to show their appreciation of the developer if they feel it is deserved.


and now we have started implementing them, here's some of the uses we have put them to. They're going to be extremely useful
