I just found another script, and little modified...

1. Create file noweposty.php (code below) and put it in board folder

        ?>
In $phpbb_root_path enter name board folder

Image can be changed here
<img src="../index_pliki/dol/strzalka_niebieska.gif">


2. Paste on the website this code:

Code: Select all

<?php include("forum/noweposty.php"); ?>

3. Change letters code on website to UTF-8

That's all, enjoy !!!

If any of you guys are still having trouble you can check the link on my signature, its been in the works for quite a while if any of you had been watching Mod Writers Discussion.
Show phpbb threads as html articles. V.5.03 Thanks Erik! (This will be updated constantly as I or others contribute...) This code is to be used on external HTML page, but if you want a template version see here.

This is probably going to be a silly question. Is it possible to get this Topics Anywhere add-on to display the topics from my PHPBB forum to my main *.html index page. At the moment, if I'm reading this correctly - this code provided by you kind folk is for placing PHP > PHP and not to display on a *.html extension. Any advice?

I would also be in need of a topics anywhere clone for phpbb3. I have not found a mod that would allow me to include the topics on another site using javascript like with phpbb2.

Is there still much of a demand for a clone of Topics Anywhere for phpBB 3.0.x? Seems like some people have found solutions, but others are still left in the dark because they need this functionality for .html pages. I've been looking for a project to work on in my free time so if there's enough interest I might be willing to try to port Topics Anywhere from phpBB2.

Hi ameeck,

is there any way this could be tweaked not to use session management based on whether user is logged or not to forum, but rather connect in the script under certain user and fetch the data?

cheers,
mahdi

[edit]

Removing this line did the trick

Code: Select all

AND ' . $db->sql_in_set('forum_id', $forums) . '

I'm using this code, when I include it on my main page I receive the following error
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/site/public_html/forums/includes/cache.php on line 51

it seems that the script is not connecting to the database. when i run the script alone it shows the forum but when I include it does not. My site script uses a few global variable I wonder if there is a conflict with phpbb3 when including a script outside of the forum folder.

In the original that was for phpbb2 the posts were displayed/written by a javascript code - is there any way to do that?

Normaly things get better after time etc. But this seems like a BIG setback.

The topics anywhere for phpBB2 is SUPERIOR to ANY other try for this mod to phpBB3.
NONE have been able to create something similar or more powerfull.
I think that is quite lame..

The thing that makes the real topics anywhere tic is the possibility to not be forced to change in the file
from what forum ID the topics should come from, and NOT be forced to change in the file how many topics/posts etc there should be.

The real topics anywhere is based on one main file where you can do all these settings on one page and use the SAME FILE for multiple settings etc. So if i want to show 5 topics here and 10 there, it should be possibly with only one file.

So to be clear about how it works, take a look at the url that the topics_anywhere creates depending on the settings:
topics_anywhere.php?mode=show&f=1&n=10&sfn=y&fnl=y&r=y&sr=y&h='a\'s\'m\'p\'l\&b=non&lpb=0&lpd=0&lpi=y

This tells the file how many topics/post/forum ID etc to show.. like the part "10&sfn" tells that there should be 10 topics.

The only problem that the real topics anywhere has is the backslash "\" as you can see in the url
That is created when using: Hide labels like:
Announcement:, Sticky:, Moved:, [ Poll ], (Locked)
Because the backslash is a security risk for the server and should not be used..

So yes, im still waiting for "the real deal" like everyone else here...
Everything that is not perfect is a flaw [",]

Hallo,
I've installed this version and works fine for me. The only problem is that my forum is german and the ü, ö, ä, letters are not showing in IE. In Firefox works fine. Could anyone help me to fix the problem?
You can find the working page at www tt600r eu
