Be careful, this MOD adds a bar with the alphabet and allows the user to display topics from only one letter. The title is chosen from historical reasons, because a simillar MOD in phpBB2 was named liked this.

If you're trying to find a MOD that will sort a particular forum in a specific order, look for the Forum sort order MOD.

&sk=s&sd=a
Find this line in viewforum.php:

Code: Select all

'U_LETTER' => append_sid("viewforum.$phpEx", "f=$forum_id&letter=$single_letter&$u_sort_param"),  
and replace it with this line:

Code: Select all

'U_LETTER' => append_sid("viewforum.$phpEx", "f=$forum_id&letter=$single_letter&sk=s&sd=a"),  
and then change the second 'U_LETTER' line just below it to this:

Code: Select all

'U_LETTER' => append_sid("viewforum.$phpEx", "f=$forum_id&letter=other&sk=s&sd=a"),

This MOD only filters out topics from a selected letter, it still maintains their sort order, which is in most cases by the time of the last reply. With this, the sorting of the topics is always alphatebic when you select a letter. It doesn't change the sort order if you didn't select a letter.

I think possibly you might have wanted the Forum Sort Order Mod

http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &sk=t&sd=a

I thought this mod was the one I wanted from the description but in actual fact I needed the one I have posted above.

Look at the one I have posted, if it is the one you need then roll back this one with your back ups and apply the other.

aertifact : check your viewforum_body.html edit and make sure you have inserted the new code Before <!-- BEGIN topicrow --> and not after.

This mod worked great for me. Thanks!!!

I would like to change the All Topics to display as All Towns on the letter bar. I found where to change the words Sort Alphabectically but couldn't find where to change All Topics. Any one know?

Seascan : you will need to make a couple of changes to make that happen.

Open language/en/common.php
Find

Code: Select all

	'ALL_TOPICS'					=> 'All Topics',
Add after

Code: Select all

	'ALL_TOWNS'						=> 'All Towns',
Open styles/stylename/template/viewforum_body.html
Find - is a partial find

Code: Select all

{L_SORT_ALPHABETICALLY}: <a href="{U_ALL_TOPICS}" style="font-weight: bold;">{L_ALL_TOPICS}</a>
In-Line find

Code: Select all

{L_ALL_TOPICS}
Replace with

Code: Select all

{L_ALL_TOWNS}
save and refresh your template and browser (cache if needed).
