Notes

  • Used to determine what status icon to display next to a topic in the messageindex and at the top of the page on the topic display.
  • Called after the $context['topic'] array has been loaded, so it does not need to check settings
  • Sets the "class" index of the $themContext array, and also sets the "extended_class" index for compatibility with older themes
