Basically i'm looking for a way to reuse the assigned vars made in the forum in a right block. I don't want to make new SQL's or something like it, just grab the already made vars and put it into a block.

I could of course make me a template with some sort of right block, however this would require editing loads of template files.

I could look something like this
Code:
if ( !defined('BLOCK_FILE') ) {

    Header("Location: ../index.php");
    die();
}

define('IN_PHPBB', true);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'extension.inc');
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.'.$phpEx);

$content = "{TOTAL_POSTS}";

That doesnt work of course, just trying to show how i want it to be.

Anyone think this would be even possible?

You might look at some of the existing forums blocks to see how to see how they work.

Unfortunately TOTAL_POSTS is one of those variables that are created in the specific Forums files.. modules/Forums/index.php

Assuming that file is run, your block could read from $total_posts - otherwise it is not assigned and you would need to do a query. I would just say do another query, it will not add that much overhead for just a COUNT

...feels like i'm chewing a gum 10 times bigger than my mouth, lol

I probably have to choose between one of two methods first... Either a standard nuke block with additional queries or some sort of floating div injected into page_header, showing to the right of the forums module with the content.

Thanks for the feedback, i think i have to figure out how i actually want this stuff to work before i move on.
