This is just on the fly. After this line of code
Code:
$result = sql_query( "SELECT topic_id, forum_id, topic_last_post_id, topic_title, topic_poster, topic_views, topic_replies, topic_moved_id FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics ORDER BY topic_last_post_id DESC", $dbi ); 

while( list( $topic_id, $forum_id, $topic_last_post_id, $topic_title, $topic_poster, $topic_views, $topic_replies, $topic_moved_id ) = sql_fetch_row( $result, $dbi ) )
add this line
Code:
$topic_title = substr($topic_title,0,15);

Sorry. Place that line of code after this
Code:
while( list( $topic_id, $forum_id, $topic_last_post_id, $topic_title, $topic_poster, $topic_views, $topic_replies, $topic_moved_id ) = sql_fetch_row( $result, $dbi ) )

Hi raven, just another help required from your side.

Can you tell me how to make the above center forum block specific to only one category of the forums, i mean so that it shows last ten posts from only one category of forums in all the forums. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Raven,

Can you please tell me how to skip the displays from one particular forum in the above script. I want to hide the posts of a single forum (say forum id=1) in the output of the the centre block.

Your help will be appreciated (as always)

Assuming this is your select statement[coe]$result = sql_query( "SELECT topic_id, forum_id, topic_last_post_id, topic_title, topic_poster, topic_views, topic_replies, topic_moved_id FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics ORDER BY topic_last_post_id DESC", $dbi );[/code]change it to
Code:
$result = sql_query( "SELECT topic_id, forum_id, topic_last_post_id, topic_title, topic_poster, topic_views, topic_replies, topic_moved_id FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics where forum_id != 1 ORDER BY topic_last_post_id DESC", $dbi );

I am having a problem with one of my websites showing the recent forum posts on the center block of my main page, I would like to be able to use fiapple recent forum posts block, but it only works on one site and on the other site it only shows the header and frame but NO posts (even your collapsing forums block doesn't show any entries, which worked before).

This is something that I have just decided to run on my websites, in the past couple of days. Each of the various recent forum blocks that I have tried that came with RAVEN's 7.0 distribution (with the exception of the one that currently is working) displays only the frame work and header without any post entries.

I currently am using one of the other forum post blocks in your 7.0 distribution, which works fine...but I rather like the fiapple display better.

What am I missing? I haven't made any changes to my websites.
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! - fiapple forum post works fine! Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! - only one forum block displays entrys.

Thanks raven, it worked like magic! It helped me getting rid of the headache i was getting for past one month in sorting this problem.

Another little request if you have time, can i use a similar hack to show the output of only one forum, say forum id = 1

now another problem has risen, how to block the output of two forums in center block?
 
Raven
PostPosted: Thu Jul 01, 2004 5:48 pm Reply with quote

The same principle
Code:
$result = sql_query( "SELECT topic_id, forum_id, topic_last_post_id, topic_title, topic_poster, topic_views, topic_replies, topic_moved_id FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics where forum_id NOT IN(1,5) ORDER BY topic_last_post_id DESC", $dbi );
Of course the 1 and 5 are only examples.

Hi Raven,

Sorry about my obsession with this center forum block, but can you please tell me how to convert this block into a module.

I have added the required code on top and bottom of this block and put it into module/forum/index.php but it is still showing a blank page in middle.

Hi Raven,

You have been great help in solving my queries above and teaching me some new aspects of php (anyways i am blank for any script including php)

I have been trying to limit the above center forum block so that it shows only the posts which has recieved n (say 10) number of replies. I have been trying for over a week now but with no success. I should admit here that i am still as ignorant as i ever was, so I came back once again to ask you for some more help. Please.

I realise that i am being a pest here, so i will make a contri to speed up ur donateometer.

Thanks

I was trying that the only the popular topics i.e. the topics with "x" number of replies should be shown in this block.

When people make Forum Posts where they copy & past from another source........the whole post shows in the preview.....but when the message finally posts....it only shows the first few sentences...then the rest is cut off........
this has happened to me on the previous versions of nuke also...and it also happens on the universal module.....
does anyone know what is causing this???? And odes anyone know how to fix it?

Nevermind on the question I went ahead and did this:

Code:


        $title = stripslashes($title);
        $title2 = substr($title,0,37);


That way I can still use the first output...

edit: sorry i didnt notice this was originally 5 years old, can someone split this out for me...
