How to put a forum preview on your front page?

Hi I recently upgraded from ikonboard to phpBB and have found it to be an excellent script. My only gripe is that with my old ikonboard there was a facility to export certain info from the forums into a folder and then access that info from another page on the site... for instance, on my front page ...

Hot forum topics and users in forum displayed on homepage

Hi I wondered if it is possible to display the number of users in the forums on your homepage? Also, is it possible to show a few 'latest topics' on your homepage to entice people into the forums? I had this in the form of a "news tiker" in ikonboard but, despite searching, haven't found any mod tha...

Re: Ikonboard 3.x Converter

vHiker Right, I've just finished successfully converting my site and everything has worked brilliantly. I'd just like to thank you for a fantastic script and all your help in ironing out all the bugs. It would have been a nightmare to have to lose all my forums and start again from scratch, in fact,...

Thanks very much for your troubles. Much appreciated. I'll take your advice and try and edit out the corrupted html.

I'll have a go with the converter, see what happens and report back.

Many thanks

I'm still getting the same error.

Feel free to have a play with my backup which you can find here **Link removed**
Let me know when you've downloaded it so I can remove it to stop it draining my bandwidth if other folk start downloading it.

Cheers

Re: Ikonboard 3.x Converter

Yep, mine is giving exactly the same error now with the new 8.22 version. The 8.21 version converted fine (i.e. without crashing). The problem seems to be around here...

Re: Ikonboard 3.x Converter

Hi, I followed the instructions to convert my forum and it seemed to worked brilliantly. The only problem I have now is where there were posts that were "quoted" in the replies. Go here for an example http://www.biscuitsbrown.com/forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1160&start=240 If a post on my original b...

I've narrowed down the problem in includes/auth.php but I'm still a bit stuck... The bit of code that is giving me trouble is the following: //or is it a temp vip: within trial period if($userdata['user_expire_date'] == 0 && time() <= ( $userdata['user_expire_date'] == 0 ?
