The Template Tag Add New Topic Link creates a link for a user to go directly to a designated forum and to an already opened Add Topic form.
This template tag is included in the Template Tags and Widgets plugin available on the Simple:Press Our Plugin Library page.
The function used is sp_AddNewTopicLinkTag() and the file that makes the magic happen is sp-AddNewTopicLink-tag.php
You can pass optional arguments to the function for formatting and display but the forum ID number is required.
The options available are tagID, tagClass,linkText, beforeLink, afterLink, echo and forumID.
An example of using this tag with a forum ID number of 1 would be.
<?php sp_AddNewTopicLinkTag('forumId=1'); ?>
You can also call this function by using a shortcode on pages, posts or widgets.
The Using Plugins page describes how you obtain and install the Template Tags plugin. Once installed you would activate it from the Simple:Press administration page Available “Plugins – Install Simple:Press Plugins”
