11/25/07: New version uploaded. I think I marked all the changed files under the changelog section, but doublecheck just to be sure.

11/30/07: New version uploaded 0.5.4. I'm pretty sure everything is included this time. Adds the ability to turn off/on the option for viewing topic previews in UCP. Also lets the individual users choose whether or not they want to see the thread previews.


NOTE: For some reason, IE seems to have a slight bug where it will flash around for a second and sometimes cover the topic title so you can't click on it. I'm trying to figure it out.

FYI I know it's pulling the correct topic ID. If I modify the FROM to a non-existent table for testing, I can see it pulling the correct post.
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Table 'phpbb3.POSTS_TABLE_x' doesn't exist [1146]

SQL

SELECT post_text FROM POSTS_TABLE_x WHERE post_id = 70246

Re: [BETA] Topic Preview 0.5.2

Post by Sr X »

ups don´t work to me.

the file install.xml said this:
Open: styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html
Find

Tip: This may be a partial find and not the whole line.
Code: Select All
<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->
Add after

Tip: Add these lines on a new blank line after the preceding line(s) to find.
Code: Select All
*<!-- INCLUDE topic_preview.html -->
overall_header.html have not that *<!-- INCLUDE topic_preview.html -->
i dont know why have that symbol arterisc *

you said in your topic and install.xml that this mod is MOD Version: 0.5.1 but the file zip said 0.5.2

in the DIY Instructions you could sais any how this or similar:
After making all file edits, Navigate to ACP > Purge Cache
Then ACP > System [tab] > Module Management: Administration Control Panel > Forums > Manage Forums > Add the \"ACP_TOPIC_PREVIEW\" Module (located under Forums -> Manage Forums in the drop-down menu).
ACP_TOPIC_PREVIEW.
Navigate to ACP > Forums > ACP_TOPIC_PREVIEW > Click 'yes' to Install
thanks!

I am having some problems i can't find this in common.php

// Add own hook handler



and also in

Open: includes/functions_display.php

why does it say Find 2 things but no add after or replace. What is the point of even opening it?

Are you using RC7? You can add it just about anywhere near the end, like before ?>
Open: includes/functions_display.php

That should have been fixed in the updated version.. let me check to see if it uploaded correctly. I reuploaded just in case.

Nope i am still using RC5. And i am having alot of trouble finding code in it. Because now i can't find.

<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->

in

styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html



Does this mean it won't work for RC5?

i use RC7 with this version in common.php you could find this:
// Add own hook handler

but i think that you could not find in overall_header this:
<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->

wasku, i think that you should update to RC7
