I have installed this mod, and here is the problem I get- it happens on the homepage and the forum index:

Open the language file, and make sure there is NO character/space/new line before <?php or after ?>

That should do it

Thank you Janmarques for a great mod!

I want to integrate the mod with the main index to the right of the bulletin board. I think this is possible but I can't figure out how to do it. Do you have any suggestions?

This is how I want it to look like.

Let's say this was my BB, I want to put the strip to the right in my bulletin board. This I want to include with a

Code: Select all

<?php include 'otherpage.php'; ?>
Thank you for tacking time.

Hi
I have installed this mod but I cant seem to get it to work.
all I have is a link to the forum index then a header saying news site with nothing in it and then phpbb copy write text....
I have to fit the text into a window width of 140px.
I am not bothered about the height yet.
just bothered that I can't get it to work.
I set the news forum id to 2,4,5,6,
If it helps the site is http://www.nzinr.com

$CFG['number_of_news'] = '15';

Maybe any file is broken. Try to upload again announcements.php, fetchposts.php and templates/subSilver/news_body.tpl IN BINARY MODE.

#-----[ DIY INSTRUCTIONS ]------------------------------------------

Now you can add http://linktoforum/announcements.php into a frame on you website.
Use for this <iframe src="http://linktoforum/announcements.php" width="70%" height="100%"></iframe>
#
Are your link correct?
I recommend you to give the full path - http://your_domain/phpbb2/announcements.php
This is the code from the_exhibitionist's page.

Code: Select all

<div id="news"><iframe src="phpBB2/announcements.php" width="96%" height="100%"></iframe>
</div>
I think it's wrong.
It must be:

Code: Select all

<div id="news"><iframe src="http://your_domain/phpBB2/announcements.php" width="96%" height="100%"></iframe>
</div>
Maybe the_exhibitionist have a similar error.

Must do a big bump on this. If anyone wouldn't mind answering this question for me, since I'm wondering if this MOD works with Categories Hierarchy or not. We need this particular mod (or anything similar to this) to pull the announcements from a forum onto a custom page that is coded on the site I administer. Would appreciate if someone could help.
No longer supporting phpBB. PM or email me regarding support and you will be ignored. I'm fully done with phpBB and everything.

This MOD should work completely independant.
I'm not 100 % sure, but if you just upload the three files and open announcements.php in your browser and it shows up without problems then it works :) It really isn't much work to install it ;)
