{{Thread| |goldonly= }}

This template is used for making links to threads. It is used in case vBulletin's format for linking to threads changes again, as it did with the move to vB4. It also results in a shorter link, as the thread title is not included on the end.

How to use

  • Copy the thread ID: https://facepunch.com/threads/1097517-The-Dragon-Megathread-V12-It-Outlived-the-Furries-and-the-Ponies.-Brace-for-Anal-Impact.
  • Place in template like this: {{Thread|1097517}}
  • Result: https://facepunch.com/threads/1097517
  • Additionally, a flag may be added if the thread can only be read by Golds: {{Thread|1097517|goldonly=yes}}
  • Result: https://facepunch.com/threads/1097517 (Gold Members only)
  • This flag is intended for use in ref tags, as it would look out of place in an article body
  • The template result can be placed within square brackets to edit the link text just like any other url
