Top Thread Starters Per Forum 1.8.1

No permission to download

This product will allow you to display a collapsible block containing a ranked list of thread starters in the forums you set as active. The block header displays how many users have started thread in each forum, and then displays those users sorted in descending order by the number of threads they have started in that forum. In the event of a tie, those users are then sorted in ascending order by userid. You can choose to display this block directly below the breadcrumb, immediately above/below the thread list, or directly above the footer. You can then choose whether to have the block appear on the left, in the center, or on the right.



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