what does the fallowing code means? What exactly i have to do ?

#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------

INSERT INTO phpbb_config ( config_name, config_value ) VALUES ('topics_on_index', '10');


I have mysql3 for my forum database sql.


you have to run that SQL query in your database (do you have phpmyadmin so you can alter your database?)

basically that's inserting into the phpbb_config table. It inserts topics_on_index as a name, and its value is 10.

I'm having the same problem - mine show the link to the topic, not to the last post.

Help!

Thanks :?

That's why it's called last topic on index ;)

Hmmm...I guess that I was just misled by the other phpbb sites I've been to that have a list of active topics that jumps to either the newest unread message or the last message.

But you are correct, this mod in its delivered form doesn't try to do that.

For any others who want a slightly different link, here's what I just changed on mine to get the newest unread post in the link:
Old index.php

Code: Select all

'TOPIC_URL' => append_sid($phpbb_root_path . 'viewtopic.'.$phpEx.'?'.POST_TOPIC_URL.'='.$row[$i]["topic_id"]),
New index.php

Code: Select all

'TOPIC_URL' => append_sid($phpbb_root_path . 'viewtopic.'.$phpEx.'?'.POST_TOPIC_URL.'='.$row[$i]["topic_id"].'&view=newest'),

Um...the code (not to mention most of the discussion here) implies that the link is supposed to be to the latest post...it just isn't working that way.


It just was never ment to display post links, active topics, not posts.
that's how it works, and nicely ;)
Buy the way you can easily add those in the query if you want.

Yep, and I posted the code to accomplish it. In the post you replied to, except that you caught the first version, before I fixed it to be correct. Timing is everything!

Like so many others, I'd really like to install this my phpbb board. I really hate to ask but I'm another newb here.

The latest_topic_on_index_1-1-9.mod is .txt format so of course I can't rely on easymod to install so it's a manual install.


I'm a near total newbie, but got this one figured out.

I just changed the name of the file to "install.txt", put it in the mods folder in a folder called "latesttopic", and EasyMOD 0.3.0 installed it into my 2.0.19 phpBB just fine. I don't have many other mods installed, which probably helps.

I did go back into the index_body.tpl file and move the chunk of inserted code all the way to the top of that file, and that put the marquee just above my forum list, which is where I wanted it. I haven't played with any of the other alterations that people have done here which show more info like forum and such, but I'm thrilled to have this on my site now.

Same issue here... even read about 2/3 of the forum topic, seemed to be fixed...

Get the box and the title, but no topics... marquee or no marquee...

Ampersand not parsed right in user name

Posted: Wed Mar 08, 2006 11:43 pm
by mrshermanoaks
One of my users notices that the ampersand in the link for the user name isn't being handled correctly.

Instead of:

Code: Select all

mode=viewprofile&u=7551 
the link is:

Code: Select all

mode=viewprofile$amp;u=7551
Any suggestions on how to correct this?
