Now official news that comes from other sites can be discussed in proper threads.
This will prevent a multiple threads titled "OMG look what I've found, news from BU". :|


That's not quite the purpose of this system. This forum now drives the UnrealSP.Org news page and allows comments on articles posted on said page - not news articles from other sites (unless the news is posted on the UnrealSP.Org news page as well). Only moderators can start new threads.

I don't want anybody else (even the mods) to be able to delete news threads. Being unable to delete replies is a side effect. If you want to remove a reply, just edit it to "double post" (if appropriate) or "deleted".

Raven - I have managed to reinstate news categories without a single change to the forum database. :)

I think... a censoring system. So it replaces the [rtnp] text with a symbol.. ONLY if it's in the first message in the News Node thread.
Something like that....
Or it "converts" it whenever it uses it for the news page....

I enabled BBCode support within the headline and added new BBCode tags to the BBCode parser (for the actual news page only). At some stage I may will probably it so that ONLY the new tags work in the headline.

In other words: A quick hack. :P
