OK I've been looking for more info on this MOD for ages... finally found it. I've been using this mod for well over 18 months now and thought it was time that I tried to do the things I'd like to do with the news section of my site.

These are the things I want to do

1. Trim each news story in news.php to first 255 characters

2. Add Pagination to news.php so that it shows next x news stories on page. Like the Fetch All MOD

3. The last thing I'd like to do, which could be a bit of work, is to have a different template for viewing the full story (just as it does now but with just 1 news story on page). And to also increment the viewed on the topic to viewed+1 without actually clicking 'comments' to actally go into the viewtopic.php page of the forum where the actual new post is located.

These changes would make for an excellent and definite news mod/

I managed 1 and 3 by using some code from ezportal fetch_posts but still a bit stuck on the pagination

Could someone still address how to properly get the news feed to the main part of one's website?

Really all im looking for is headlines that I can put on my main page that will link back to the forum thread.

Thanks all!

(FYI -- If anyone is wondering, this mod appears to work fine with 2.0.5)

Anyone tried this with phpBB 2.0.6?

And is there being done any work on this mod anymore? I'd really like if the mod could trim the news-messages to a given number of characters. Some of the posts are way to long to be presented in it's original form on an index page.

Does anyone know another mod like this?

This sounds to be the kind of thing i am looking for (a way to generate what is basically a portal with only the news articles showing)

Thanks in advance

Well, I would like to use this one, too! But the site doesn't seem to work, however...

In fact, http://mods.sj26.bur.st/ returns an error and so does http://sj26.bur.st/ ... :?:

Hi ppl.

sj26, great Mod, congratulations !!!
I have installed in my forum and works great!
But I have a question...

My forum have over 12,597 posts and with newsmod active, the forum "stay" very slow! But if I put the mod Off backs to normal!
I think the problem is in archive link... because in the index it appears in status bar alot of links loading...

How can I fixed this to make my forum faster with newsmod on?
How can I fix the archive to record only the 5 recent topics?

Sorry my english... I´m a Portuguese guy :oops:
P.S. Please sorry for my poor english...
