This request pops up many times, the code change by Volksdevil works well, and until an extension is created seems our best bet.

Yes, but this is just a piece... he is not very convenient as using the code Volksdevil, tidies up the topic alphabetically, but so you lose the timeline of the post in a forum (you no longer know what topic was written last).

^^ Not sure I understand. If you want to sort Alphabetically, of course the forum won't be sorted by last post time. That's the whole point of it. To sort topics like A, B, C, D, E, F, G.....

I think this - https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... betically/ - which add letters into viewforum and you can show only topics starting with chosen letter...like this:

Code: Select all

Should I create new topic/request only for this mod? I tried to manually add code to 3.1.3 files, but some things are changed and I dont know where to add it.

Thank you :)

No.. I would like the letters like the mods, if a user clicks on a letter to display all the posts whose title starts with A and as well as for all the other letters

What do you mean 'No'? This topic is about sorting Topics alphabetically in a forum. And you said:
you lose the timeline of the post in a forum (you no longer know what topic was written last).
You can't have both, it's either one or the other... :? And by me posting "A,B,C,D,E,F..." I mean the order, not to have links that show posts under each Letter of the alphabet. Although that would be a nice addition.

I think what you are wanting is to have topics NOT shown in alphabetical order, and to just have the Linked Letters of the alphabet.

I would probably place it before this line

Code: Select all
$s_limit_days = $s_sort_key = $s_sort_dir = $u_sort_param = '';

because gen_sort_selects uses the variables that you are over riding.

yes bro, i have cleared the cache after saving

and for me don't work

i have posted it after this code as you suggest
here: // Limit topics to certain time frame, obtain correct topic count

and after here:
$s_limit_days = $s_sort_key = $s_sort_dir = $u_sort_param = '';

as RMcGirr83 suggest

please post any screen for example

thanks
