similar topics mod?

Postby brynn » Fri Nov 23, 2012 3:11 pm

Hi Friends,
:idea: I just saw a really nice mod at another forum, and wanted to ask if there is something similar for phpBB Forums. Whenever you start a new topic, after you type the title, a list shows up of similar topics. It's just like using the forum search, except it's done automatically for you. I think it would be really, really helpful in this forum, and potentially could prevent a lot of the repetitive questions we get.

I'm gonna visit the phpBB site, and search the available mods. I'll post again if I find one.

All best :D

Well, not that I could find :( There are a couple that will display similar topics at the end of a topic. And that could be helpful, I guess. But having it show up after you type the title of a new topic, it could prevent some repetitive topics. Oh well :( but maybe the idea will catch on, and someone will make one.

It would be useful. Many support sites us this system to reduce the number of support requests.
