Important note: Version 2.0.0 is a complete rewrite, and requires Invision Community 4.5. Mark Topic is now an application, and upgrading from version 1.1.0 will automatically copy all existing markers and topic markers before deleting the old plugin. There are no known risks with upgrading, but you should always keep backups of your database.
If you're still using Invision Community 4.4 or earlier, please download version 1.1.0 of this plugin.
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.
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.
As of version 2.0.0 (awaiting release), there are no known issues.
Some of the planned features include:
Markers statistics in the ACP.
Widgets, and statistics on member profiles.
Require markers after creating a topic, with automatic reminders to mark the topic.
Support for multi-moderation.
