What can I do so that when people click on one of the listed latest topics, it goes directly to the last post of that topic? Or at least, how to put the View the last post's icon Image Image/ View the first unread post's icon Imagenext to the topic name so that people can click on it like in the Topic Row of the index? Thanks?

This must be a difficult problem. Let me tell my story. I have recently installed phpbb2 and zapata's last topic on index which points its scrolling link to the forum topic. -- see truthinJesus.net

Badly i want to add the mini_icon.gif to the profile name section JUST LIKE LISTED normally on the index. Or at least a link, any link, to the last post in the topic thread. Pleeease. -- having the icon_latest_reply.gif Image working in the scroll would be sweet. -- I have beat myself silly trying to decode and replace and find out how. Some sites i can link to do have at least the topic link on the scroll pointing to the last post. So i should think it can be done. I am willing to pay for the priviledge, if i knew who to ask and it wasn't out of my budget. -- i don't know hardly anything about phpbb programming and amazed at what you folks can do.

Maybe the "secret" is still buried in these 59 pages of thread and i just keep missing it. I surely would like the link to post to the last post though. Right now when you get to the topic you have to go to the bottom of the last page to find the last post.

Reference: Latest topic on index
https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... c+on+index

Reference mod installed at truthinJesus.net

PS: i registered in this phpbb programmer forum just to make this post.
PPS: The way I changed the MySql part of the database config file was to edit the phpbackup.sql file with a proper file editor and restore it within phpbb restore
after posting this i'll try to pm zparta about this mod
PHPBB IS GREAAAAAT

:) -- Hooray Hooray -- And a Praise the Lord too.
After spending all day surveying the previous 59 pages I have a fix which works in my application, everytime, and i haven't been able to break it yet.......
:) -- Hooray Hooray -- And a Praise the Lord too.
I had a nice long post, and lost it because i checked a link and didn't back up my text -- :( -- you know that saying about those that have lost data and those that will. Well, good thing -- :) You get the shorter version of my findings.

SEE Working last post icon -- Image -- within Latest active topic scroll at:

https://www.kf1.org/forum/index.php#scroll.


It works good for my application with both logged in and guest viewers.

Dear srm999: Start reading three posts above this one.
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 1#p3141441

Dear lapmonkey9: Go to the 0 zparta latest_topic_on_index_1-1-9.zip_LinkPage -- Download the file. Open it. And start reading. Not a project for someone without a minimal basic understanding of programming. It doesn't take a lot of knowledge, but you have to have a little to start with. -- 8-)

This has probably been answered before in this huge thread but I just updated my board and need to reinstall this mod. I am hosted with Dream Host. Can anyone help me?

EDIT:

Ok I think I screwed something good.

This is my site - http://brightonclassics.com/forums/index.php

Trying to reinstall latest topics on index has created two of them but they do not work.

Help please :(

Hey all...I just installed this mod and am getting this error at the top of the index page and need help resolving it:
Warning: ob_start(): output handler 'ob_gzhandler' cannot be used after 'URL-Rewriter' in /home/waterwer/public_html/phpBB1/includes/page_header.php on line 44
This is the site: http://waterwerksmotorsports.com/phpBB1/index.php

Anyone that can help with fixing this...I'd be very appreciative!

Cheers-
George
