[Release] Default Message - labrocca - Jan 19, 2008

Recently I have been seeing some forums with a default message when you begin a new thread. It's handy to enforce rules, to remind members of posting ettiquete, or for a template for sales forums.

So...took some time today to whip this out. Works good.

License is GNU/GPL attached inside extras folder.

Plugin Name: Default Message
Plugin Author: Jesse Labrocca
Plugin Website:
Plugin Version: 1.0
Plugin Mybb Compatibility: 1.2x
Plugin File Edits: None
Plugin File Uploads: 3
Plugin Description: This plugin creates default messages for forums. Perfect for sales forums or to enforce posting rules.


1. Upload the files from the zip

2. Login to your admincp and ACTIVATE the plugin (Default Message) in the plugin manager.

3. You will have a new "Default Message" in admincp settings under "posting". It's enabled by default.

The rest is self explantory.

Language is supported simply edit the defaultmessage.lang.php file and upload it to your preferred language.

Interesting idea. So you can set up a message for just one forum or more? I might have to play around with it a bit on my test forum. Big Grin

You can set up any forum with any default message.

Thanks Man That's Pretty Useful / But Will This Message Be Posted In The Post If A User Forgets To Delete It or Remove It?

RE: [Release] Default Message - labrocca - Jan 20, 2008

Yes it will be added to the post. I could probably write something to check if it's in a preview and have it removed. However one has to be a complete idiot not to delete it.

RE: [Release] Default Message - judel - Jan 20, 2008

LOL...that is true, but you know there will be people who will forget to remove it! Wink

Excellent! I'll use this on my forums. Big Grin

Thanks labrocca

RE: [Release] Default Message - Lady Angelique - Feb 20, 2008

this is cool

RE: [Release] Default Message - shemo - Feb 27, 2008

Labrocca...have you changed it any so that it is removed when an actual post/reply is made? I know some of the younger people in my guild will not remember to remove it out of their post....

if so, I'll definitely use this plugin on my forums.
