Enhanced Thread Preview 1.2.1

No permission to download

In certain areas of vBulletin 4.x, when you hover your mouse over a thread title, you see a tooltip that displays a truncated version of the first post content. This simple product allows you to designate areas in which the tooltip will also contain a truncated version of the last post.


The product settings allow you to enable/disable the product, set how guests are handled, and select the areas in which the product is active. When deciding how to handle guests, you may select for thread previews to be hidden in all areas whether they are selected as active or not, to hide them in the active areas only, to display the default preview or to allow guests to see the enhanced thread preview. I recommend not allowing guests to see the enhanced thread previews to reduce server load, as additional queries are required to get the last post content. Truncation of the last post follows the same setting affecting the default preview.


Version 1.1:

  • Strip BB Codes from preview content.

Version 1.2:

  • Resolved fetch_array issue present for some.
  • Phrased the format of the new preview tooltip.

Version 1.2.1:

  • Ignore thread redirects.


Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.
