(NE) Pinned Topic Enhancements

Recommended Posts

Pending approval:


  • This plugin was created to extend functionality provided by @newbie LAC's existing (NB40) Separate Pinned Topics plugin and therefore requires that you have already purchased and use that plugin.
  • Do not purchase this plugin if you are not already using the above plugin.

What does this plugin do?

  • Using jQuery, provides functionality for the 'Pinned Topics' section to be automatically collapsed when a forum's index page is loaded.
  • Admin has the ability to
    • ensure that 'Featured' and 'Unread' pinned topics are always displayed.
    • control the speed at which the expand/collapse effect takes place (slow or fast)
  • User can click on the 'Pinned Topics' header to expand/collapse the listing of topics.


  • This plugin has been developed with the IPS default theme in mind, and has not been tested on any other themes.
  • If you are using a theme which has made changes to the html upon which this plugin acts, and it fails to work as a result, then please post in the Support Topic and provide a link to your site for review.

Hey! Thanks for making this, I just saw the topic where you said you'd made it.  So happy!

The pinned topics collapse and that's brilliant, but I can't UNcollapse them if I wanted to read something - the section will just immediately collapse back because I have no unread pinned topics.  This happens in both default theme and my custom theme.

Thanks - will take a closer look.

Hmm...based on the following, it would appear that the JS code is running twice (adding the '(display X of Y)' information to Newbie's 'Pinned topics' header)


I've spotted a couple of changes I can make to the code in general - could you send me ACP credentials so I can upload a new version of the plugin and test it out?

Hi, I don't know why, but it isn't working for me, not even in the IPS default design...

  1. I have "separate pinned topics" installed and activated
    -> they are showing separated
  2. I have "collapse pinned topics" installed and activated
    -> I've set to show both unread and featured, fast
  3. On the frontend I can only see the following (but nothing is animated)
    -> the "pinned topics title bar" shows -> Pinned Topics (displaying 0 of 0) (displaying 0 of 0)

What am I doing wrong?

your plugin will collapse the pinned topics on all forums categories?

All forums.

or only in those places, where we have manually clicked on the collapsing button?

There is no functionality to include/exclude specific forums - no plans to put one in new features either, unless the plugin proves more popular.

Is it possible to have a setting where it will show the pinned topics by default

Do you mean pinned topics are shown regardless of being featured/unread?

have an option to select which forums would be enabled for this?

Enabled for 'this' being the plugin (already possible) or the new feature you are requesting (and I am clarifying)?

Hi @Nathan Explosion -

I have been using this one for a few days now and immediately a few users pointed out that the option to show more topics is kinda confusing. Is it possible to better show/tell users to click on the arrow to expand the list or something?

It does not seem obvious or maybe its because its on a dark theme - http://prntscr.com/18dtyh1

It only says 'Click to expand' when hovering on it..


Thank you!
