Version: 1.10.2 Release date: 2018-12-03

A bug-fix version preventing error "Please choose destination forum" when quick thread is used in a forum.

Version: 1.10.1 Release date: 2018-11-29

A bug-fix version preventing an error logged in browser's console when the target forum is changed.

Version: 1.10.0 Release date: 2018-10-30

In this version, we have modified the behavior of the product not to select any of the available forums by default when a thread prompt is associated with multiple forums on the home page. As a result, users have to select one of the forums before submitting the thread. This way admins will avoid having unrelated threads being posted in a forum if users and don't change the forum and automatically submit the thread to the first forum in the list.

Version: 1.9.1 Release date: 2018-07-24

The version fixes the support for Similar Threads add-on which was broken since last update.

Version: 1.9.0 Release date: 2018-07-13

This version introduces support for Widget Framework and direct template modification to embed the quick thread widget. The update targets the cases when the customer builds a custom "home page" with widgets or custom template and wants Quick Thread form there, which, however, would not work as variables needed for the form to render would be missing. In this version, the variables required will be available in all XenForo templates. The same time, the variables will be generated and stored in memory only if they are accessed, so the enhancement has no performance impact on pages which don't use the Quick Thread form at all.

To embed the form anywhere in your templates all you need is just to include the template alqt_thread_placeholder_stand_alone.

Version: 1.8.0 Release date: 2017-11-18

This version implements a new option allowing to add rel="nofollow" attribute for "Post Thread In..." button on home page.

Version: 1.7.3 Release date: 2017-11-06

This is a bug-fix version that fixes a PHP error when adding thread prompts.

Version: 1.7.2 Release date: 2017-10-31

This is a minor update fixing a phrase and implementing formatting of large thread numbers as in XenForo 2.x

Version: 1.7.0 Release date: 2017-10-09

In this version, we have implemented User Criteria system of XenForo in Thread Prompts. Now every thread prompt can be targeted to specific users based on many criteria - their usergroup, validation status etc. All criteria available in Notices and other similar parts of XenForo are supported. If third-party add-ons extend this system properly, the criteria added by them will be available in our add-on as well.

Version: 1.6.0 Release date: 2017-09-12

This release implements the ability for admins to select multiple destination forums when the block is shown on forum home page. If multiple forums are selected a forum selector is shown to users with the first forum in the list (based on display order in admin panel) is selected. Users can change the forum and post their thread in any of other forums available.

The product supports prefixes/required tags for multiple forums, Changing the forum the form reloads and shows the prefixes available for the new forum, and if there are any required tags, the field to set the tags also appears.

We are planning to implement XenForo Criteria engine in the next release, that will allow you to specify different user criteria, based on which thread prompts will be shown (e.g. to users from particular usergroup).

Version: 1.5.1 Release date: 2017-09-07

This is a bug-fix release, that solves the issue with the first node selected in "Post Thread" Forums option not being included in the list.

Version: 1.5.0 Release date: 2017-09-07

We are glad to announce the release of our new add-on - Guest Posting.

All owners of an active license of Quick Thread add-on purchased till September 6, 2017, can apply for a free one-year license of this add-on. Owners of branding-free Quick Thread license will get the branding free add-on for free as well. Please apply for a Trial version on our website and contact us to verify your license and apply for the promotion.

This version contains some changes required to support Guest Posting.

We have also implemented the option to choose the forums available in "Post Thread In..." pop-up.

Version: 1.4.0 Release date: 2017-09-03

This is a minor release with a new option implemented - hide prefix selector. Prefix sector can be hidden only if the forum does not require a prefix, or a default prefix is specified. It will be shown even if the option is enabled, but your forum requires a prefix and you don't have any default prefix specified.

We have also fixed small styling issues regarding the avatar shown in front of Quick Thread title field.

The upcoming release will implement list of forums to show when clicking Post Thread button on forum home page and other enhancements.

Version: 1.3.6 Release date: 2017-09-02

In this version, we have enhanced the support for mobile devices. We have implemented two new options, to hide the block on Narrow and on Medium devices. We have also fixed the layout issues in Similar Threads block.

Post Thread button on home page will have another phrase now - alqt_post_thread_home_button allowing to translate/customize it independent from the Post Thread button in Quick Thread form itself. It will also have a custom CSS class now - "postThreadHomeButton", that allows admins to CSS it differently from other similar buttons on the board.

Version: 1.3.5 Release date: 2017-08-31

In this version, we have fixed the issue with More Options button. It was saving thread title and prefix but message content could be lost if the message was not saved in drafts.

Version: 1.3.4 Release date: 2017-08-31

In this release we have fixed the bug with user's avatar not showing in the list of threads after thread creation if the thread added to the list via AJAX.

Version: 1.3.3 Release date: 2017-08-24

This is a bugfix version that solves the compatibility issue with CTA Featured Threads add-on. The button on the home page was not visible even when it was enabled in product options.

In this version, we have also applied maximum height to the Post Thread popup, so it is entirely visible on any device height, and if it has many nodes the content can be scrolled inside the overlay.

Version: 1.3.2 Release date: 2017-08-23

This is a bug-fix version that solves a PHP error introduced in the latest version.

Version: 1.3.1 Release date: 2017-08-23

In this bug-release version we solved the problem with prefixes not being shown properly on forum home page.

Version: 1.3.0 Release date: 2017-08-11

With this version we introduced enhanced tools to allow users to start a thread right from forum home page. Now every thread prompt can be set to be shown on forum home page. You can select the forum where the thread is being posted. In product's options page you can also enable the "Post Thread..." button on top of forum home page. This does not basically use the Quick Thread form, but shows a pop-up with all forums available and allows the users to quickly go to the Create Thread page.

There are also two new options, that allow admins to decide, if users should immediately see the posted thread under the Quick Thread form, or should be redirected to the thread page, and this can be configured separately for forum home page and other forum pages.

Version: 1.2.3 Release date: 2017-08-08

In this bug-fix release we introduced a completely rewritten CSS engine, that targets better compatibility with third-party themes, especially fixing several issues reported under UI.X engine.

Version: 1.2.2 Release date: 2017-08-08

This version fixes a regression in 1.2.1 version with requests not being sent properly. It also solved a styling issue with prefix sizes.

Version: 1.2.1 Release date: 2017-08-08

This is a bug-fix release solving the issue with translated title of thread prompt not being used properly.

Version: 1.2.0 Release date: 2017-08-06

In this version, we have fixed the support for forums, that have the minimum number of required tags specified in Admin Panel. In this case, quick thread form will show the field to input thread tags.

We also introduce support for Similar Threads add-on. Please note, that there were some compatibility issues with 5.1 version currently available, due to the non-standard usage of XenForo JavaScript API in this add-on. In particular, the addon calls XenForo.init() function in its template, which is hard coded and can not be altered on the fly. This is done to support thread preview popup and other dynamic controls in thread list, but it causes other dynamic controls on the page, such as prefix chooser to reinitialize, causing different types of bugs. A proper way to activate dynamic content on content inserted using AJAX is to call .xfActivate method on the element containing the new content. Another optional change we did in the add-on was moving its JavaScript to a separate script file instead of including it in the template directly, making it more re-usable for other add-ons and allowing the browser to cache its content instead of downloading it every time.

We have already contact @AndyB and provided the fixed package to be released. Please use our add-on only with the updated version. Our customers can get the fixed version from us by opening a ticket in our Support System, in case the author will decide not to release the version with the fixes we have suggested.

You can test both features introduced in this version at https://addonslab.com/forums/test-forum.3/

Version: 1.1.0 Release date: 2017-08-04

If Unregistered usergroup has permission to post a thread, they will see the Quick Thread form as well, and will be asked to enter their username to post a thread.

If ReCaptcha or any other Human Verification System is enabled no board, guests will need to pass the verification just like when posting using full Create Thread page.
