Topics Anywhere for phpbb3 (3.2.7)

Post by stormo »

Is there a file I can download and modify that worked like the old Topics Anywhere script in phpbb 2.0. The objective is to pull topics from my phpbb 3.2.7 board onto a html page(s) on my main site. Topics Anywhere eventually stopped working because my IHP limited changes to the htaccess file so I used a similar script mytopics which worked well in phpbb 2.0. I also tried using the following procedure and couldn't get it to work:

I need this too. Is there a script for this that works for 3.3? If not, is someone working on an extension that will do this - display recent topics on external pages that is?

Good news! I found an external topics script that works for 3.3 and started a topic to release it. See below.

Excellent! This script is almost identical to one that I used for 2.0 but I couldn't get to work in 3.0. Thank you so much!

You're welcome. I couldn't get it to work for a while either. Then someone told me the problem. You have to change the "mysql" code to "mysqli" because mysql is deprecated and no longer used. Once you do that, it works again! :)
