      Force Users to Read a Thread 2.0


      About this hack:
      This hack allows you to set a thread as 'must read' by your members. Right now, if you make a post and want all your members to read it, you have no way of enforcing it. This hack will give an error message similar to the one you get when you need to change you password, saying that the admins want you to read a certain thread before they continue using the forum.

      Once a user reads a thread, they wont be bugged to read it again.

      You can set all usergroups or just certain onces that must read a thread.

      You can set to site wide or just some forums.

      Option to Force Guests

      This hack added one query to every page on your forum a member goes to.

    Awarapan, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
