Description:

This mod adds a new option to clone a topic to multiple boards by creating an alias or symbolic link to the original topic. This comes in handy when you want a topic to display in different boards in your forum.

How it works is by adding a new table that contains the id of the original topic and the board it is cloned to. When you visit the board a query injects the topic id into the board it is cloned into which in turn loads the topic as if it was posted in that board.
