As a moderator, I would like to mark a post(s) in a thread as the “Answer”. This would move the post up to the top of the thread, and quickly help any visitors identify which post they should read first.
Microsoft has a good example of this:
http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/crmdevelopment/thread/90d0f00a-91cd-46e5-a385-e51234d70bc6 


Notice it is marked as “Answer” and had a distinct green background. Other users can log in & vote on the helpfulness of the post. I’m very interested on helping develop this solution if you can point me in the right direction.

He possibly means that there should be messages which are marked as answers. It can be done as customization. Then statuses should have an extra column which shows a 'question status' and it
then he can make it if he will cope with first message and the flag ordering in the post_list.

I tried your suggestion. That works. But how can I change the status of a topic later? For example, a "question" status topic should be change to "Solved" later. How could I do that?

BTW, in the downloaded package, looks the like image resource file for status is missing. It shows nothing on the page. But from the link, it is linking to image theme/cleanState/state_question.png which doesn't exist.

The creator of the topic, mod, or admin can change the status.

The status icons are currently only included for my grey themes, but you can download the new icons for the other thems from the source code repository.

Question 1) I cannot find this option, I have installed the latest version (Your YAF.NET Version: 1.9.6.1 )

Question 2) How the "Mark the post as Answered" work ? and how yo mark the post as answered ?

Question 3) what if user who is created the question would like to mark the post as answered to same time for moderators to mark it ?


Please help


1. This Setting is disabled by default, you need to enable it first in the Host Settings -> "Allow Topic Status Option"

2. and 3. Marking a post as answer is currently not possible, you can only set an topic status. Set a post as Answer is on the Road Map for future Versions.
