Mark Topic is a plugin 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 the topic title when viewing the forum and when viewing the topic. You can customize the color and the text of the badge, and whether it should look like a badge or a tag.

It is 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.

Known issues:

As of version 1.1.0, there are no known issues.

Planned features:

Some of the planned features include:

  • Support for multi-moderation.
  • Lock and/or move topics when they are marked. (Added in version 1.1.0)
  • Unlock and/or move topics when they are unmarked. (Added in version 1.1.0)
  • Translatable markers. (Added in version 1.1.0)
  • Marking and unmarking topics show up in the activity log.

Which is the difference compare the tag solution? 

This plugin makes it easy and fast to add a marker (badge) to a topic, by placing a button next to the «Reply to this topic»-button. The marker visually stands out, both when viewing the topic and when viewing the forums.

It's similar to using tags, but with tags you and your members will have to edit the topic and manually add the tag. Also, unless I’m mistaken, there is no way to restrict a tag to specific forums or members. This plugin is kind of a combination of tags, prefixes, and saved actions (multimoderation), and you can allow everyone to use the markers, not only admins and moderators.

Here are a few pictures showing the visual differences between markers, tags, and prefixes.

I have fixed the problem! It was caused by Unread Topic Badge, another plugin. I had to change the order of the plugins, and move my plugin below Unread Topic Badge. It seems to be working fine now, but let me know if you’re still having problems.

I also identified a bug related to deleted (non-existing) forums and member groups, and I have uploaded a new version to your website. Thank you for your time!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

So, I can call it as Topic Status plugin? If this is the case, not necesary close the topic after Mark it. And I suggest, the action mark should be an action that call to choose which Statu to use. Example, maybe the topic Statu now is ON THE WAY, but the topic continues receive posts, maybe tomorrow is the time close it, then tomorrow I click to Mark botton and choose FINISHED, then take other action, close the topic. 

Above explanation don't have any automatic condition that close the topic, all manually by the moderator o moderators of the topic. 

Maybe if we want to close the topic automatically, we need a set of conditions available for set up each topic...

@Runar can you add a collaborative feature?

First, I set up in a forum the members who will have permission to use Mark Topic, example 5 members. 

Then if in a topic one of the 5 members want set Mark Topic, example set AGREED, but the mark still not appearing in the topic, waiting for others 2 members more as a condition appearing the mark. 

Maybe can create a statu space that indicates who are already set mark. 

I would like purchase this add on immediately with the requested feature.

@Runar Do topic authors have permission to choose the markers?  

As long as the topic author’s group is selected in the marker permissions, they will be able to mark and unmark their own topics. As a side note, since you used the word «choose»: There can only be one marker per forum, so no one, not even administrators, can choose between different markers.

Let me know if I misunderstood your question!

@Runar would it be possible for markers to be utilized in clubs as well?

I’m not using clubs myself so I’m not sure how much work it would be, but I will take a look at it and let you know!
