Interesting new feature. Will use it definitively when I have a reason!

@Juju @Streetwalrus Does this affect the RSS feed in any way (cuz of the post notifier)?

Thanks for pointing it out, Juju.
@DJ Omnimaga Do you know whether this new clone feature affects the RSS feed of CW?

DJ Omnimaga

It shouldn't, normally. I think RSS feeds use SSI commands, like Recent post lists.

Oh, could there be a topic cloned popup in Walrier PC?

Not sure, but I guess the mod could be modified to send the notification to various apps or bota.

Yeah, from what I gather now, when you clone a topic, it's still assigned to 1 sub-forum. it's just that there is now an extra database table called smf_topic_clones where the new info is stored. But yeah, the Walrifier is mostly to notify of new messages anyway.

I guess in the future it could notify of edits too, but I don't remember if that requires a SMF mod. Omnimaga does it on IRC but I doubt they would allow us to use the mod they use, since they never did with their Recent Posts mod (the author wanted to, but since he released the mod under Omnimaga copyright instead of his, he no longer had the last word.

I'm glad you didn't use the recent posts mod, as theirs is a bit weird.  Ok, still works for me!

Well, at least their recent posts mod is 100% identical to topic listings in each sub-forum, minus the topic previews, plus you can go all the way back to the beginning of Omnimaga forums, while on CW it looks different and only spans through 100-200 topics (it only returns topics in which the last 1000 posts were made, which is why Recent Posts never shows the same amount of topic. If someone was to post 1000 times in one topic, our Recent Posts page would only show that topic and if we made 1000 posts split into 1000 topics, then the recent post page would display all of them.

I don't really mind our version, though, as it was almost how it was on Omni before the 2014 upgrade:
