Post by Marcum28 » Tue Nov 25, 2008 1:41 am

Hey all,

Just started using phpBB and am getting a better sense on how to use it. Right now, I'm altering the Last Post table, and I am curious to know how to make it show the latest thread rather than the poster. So instead of saying:

Tue Jun 17, 2008 1:25 am
By: {Username}

It says
Tue June 17, 2008 1:25 am
In: {Latest Thread Name}
By: {Username}

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Marcum28

In forumlist_body.html, find:

Code: Select all

<!-- ELSE -->{L_NO_POSTS}<!-- ENDIF -->
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<br /><!-- ELSE -->{L_NO_POSTS}<!-- ENDIF --> {L_IN} {forumrow.LAST_POST_SUBJECT}
Refresh your template - ACP => Styles => Style Components => Templates.

Thank you very much. It worked.

One more thing - is there any way to remove the Re: after every response post? It looks bad.

I tried this modification too, but when I came to refresh the template, I ended up with the following error message...
General Error
Could not open ./../styles/prosilver/template/colour_swatch.html
...and I still haven't got the new thread titles shown as I wanted. Any thoughts?

I added this code to my "Last Post" column at forumlistbody. But it takes full name and this is normal. But I want use this shorten. For example I want put a limit like 25 characters, than continue with dots.

Any suggestion?
