Re: Changing Topic ID
From one coding novice to another, I can try to answer that question.
Plugins that need to keep track of topic_id include topics that tend to “attach” something to a topic, or track data tied to a particular topic. _ck_’s examples above mentioned file attachments and polls… I’m guessing that at some of the following might work similarly:
* Best Answer (since a post within a particular topic is selected as the Best Answer)
* Unread Topics (which tracks if a topic has been read by a particularuser)
* bb Topic Views -(which tracks views for each topic)
Just a guess though…
