This application will allow you to bring a topic and/or topics to the center of attention of all your users by adding it/them to the featured list at the board index.

Topics added to the featured users list will appear in a random order. Every time that the forum page is refreshed a different topic will appear with a short preview and some other info. The forum permissions will be carried intact. Meaning if a group/s does not have permission to view the topics of a certain forum then the topic/s featured from that particular forum will now be shown to it/them.

You can display the featured topics list at the top of your forum index, bottom or sidebar. You can also enable and disable the application, choose the group/s that you want to view the featured topics list and as last but not least you can also control the avatar size of the thread starters.

Also all the actions of the admin in regard to the featured topics, (adding, editing and/or removing), will be logged to the admin log in the acp.

Installation: To install the application, unzip the mod package and upload the contents of the admin folder inside your admin folder keeping the structure intact. Then go to your Admin Panel->Applications & Modules->Manage Applications & Modules and on the right side where it says: Applications Not Installed you will see a new application added called: Featured Topics. Click on the install button.

To configure it go to the Other Apps tab then from the drop down list choose Featured Users and it will take you to the Application 's Management Area area where you can add featured users and set the settings.

Under the Configuration Tab you can add topics to appear at the featured topics list and manage them.

Then at the Settings Tab you can set the settings for the following options:

1) Enable/Disable the application.

2) Choose the position where you would like to display the featured topics block. At the top, bottom or sidebar.

3) Choose the group/s that you want to view the featured topics.

4) Choose the avatar size of the thread starters.

Configure everything accordingly to your needs/likings.

For more info on how the application looks like when being used, please check out the attached screenshots.
