Have you ever made a calculator project, but then been forced to create a second topic for it in order to release it in the downloads archives? Have you ever ran into the dilemma about where to put the topic of a project that is both for calculators and computers or a discussion that fits way more than one category?

Well, good news: CodeWalrus now has a new feature called "Clone Topic"! Basically, you can request a staff member that a topic be listed into multiple sections, for which we recommend PMing them, using the @mention feature or e-mailing a d m i n @ c o d e w a l r . u s. Once your topic is cloned, it will remain in its original sub-forum, but if you browse the section it was cloned to, the topic will show up there as well. Note that the topic replies will only count towards the post count of its main sub-forum. When clicking the topic from a different category than its main one, you will be redirected to its original sub-forum.

In addition to that, the ability to clone your own topics yourselves is available for the CodeWalrus Supporters (via paid subscriptions) and  Elite Coders. Remember that topics must be relevant to the categories they are listed in, though. This feature is located via a button at the bottom of the topic view, above Quick Reply.

Enjoy!

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah, I wanted the download topic to also show up in the project sub-forum. And now Caticles Chronicles shows up in both as well.

Great !
I was indeed wondering how it would be possible for me to put Four Shades of Grey both in "Contests" and in the invisibru "Hayleia's projects" subforum :)

Nice, does this mean that you'll make a front page news sub forum so that the lazy of us can get notifications?


DJ Omnimaga

I don't think you'll be notified if the topic is assigned to a different primary board, but i could move all front page topics one by one into a news section then clone them back in their original sub-forums.


CKH4

Yep that'd be great. I hope you still get a notification if a topic is moved instead of posted.


DJ Omnimaga

The only issue with setting a new board is that if, one day, we are forced to upgrade to SMF 2.1 or 3.0 and that the author of the clone topic mod decides to stop maintaining it, then we would have to move all topics back to their original sub-forums so that they don't get lost. I hope that doesn't happen. Hopefully we can take pre-emptive measures (such as having one staff member port the current mod to SMF 2.1)

Will editing the one post automatically update the second too?
