Manual Install Instructions for SMF


Fully reversible (uninstalls cleanly).

This modification extends basic sticky topics by stickying first post (it will be displayed on each page of multi-page topic) and adding a separator between sticky and non-sticky topics and posts.
No option to turn it on or off - automatically turned on for sticky topics.
Performance drawbacks: extra query (one quick first post select) only for topics marked as sticky.
Known bugs: post counter in a topic is offset by one on each page after first, since first post is inserted. Does not affect anything.

Version: 1.3.2
  - minor fixes, 1.1.* support
  - "newest first" sorting order support final

Version: 1.3.1 BETA - only for testing now
  - Support for "newest first" sorting order - sticky post will be first anyway.

Version: 1.3.0
  - 1.1 (and further) compliant
Version: 1.2.3
  - Made 1.0.8+ and 1.1 RC3 compliant
Version: 1.2.2

  - Verified that mod works with 1.0.7 (backwards compatible with 1.0.5) and latest 1.1RC2 update. 1.1RC1 support dropped.
