Hi

I need some help to change this code so that it limits the title to e.g. 16 characters.

what happens currently is that if someone posts a message with no spaces in the title like:
adkfljasdkfjlkasdjfklajsdlkfjklasdjfljasdlkfjlasdk
the block width is messed up and it messes up the whole site.

here's the code for the block:
Code:



<?php

if (eregi("block-Forums.php", $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) {
    Header("Location: index.php");
    die();
}

global $prefix, $db, $sitename;

$result = $db->sql_query("SELECT forum_id, topic_id, topic_title FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics ORDER BY topic_time DESC LIMIT 10");
$content = "<br>";
while ($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result)) {
    $forum_id = intval($row['forum_id']);
    $topic_id = intval($row['topic_id']);
    $topic_title = $row['topic_title'];
    $row2 = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT auth_view, auth_read FROM ".$prefix."_bbforums WHERE forum_id='$forum_id'"));
    $auth_view = intval($row2['auth_view']);
    $auth_read = intval($row2['auth_read']);
    if (($auth_view < 2) OR ($auth_read < 2)) {
        $content .= "<a href=\"forums.html?amp;file=viewtopic&amp;t=$topic_id\">$topic_title</a><br>";
    }
}

$content .= "<br><center><a href=\"forums.html\"><b>$sitename Forums</b></a><br><br></center>";

?>

how do I truncate the title?

Hi this is a sample of how the stripping works.....
sample is from my downloads block...
you can play with it and duplicate it.....

Code:


$content .= "";
global $prefix, $dbi;
$strip = "15";
$linkstrip1 = stripslashes($title);
$linkstrip2 = substr($linkstrip1, 0, $strip) . "..";
$title2 = ereg_replace("_", " ", $title);
$content .= "<a href=\"modules.php?name=Downloads&amp;op=getit&amp;lid=$lid\">$linkstrip2</a><br>";
    $a++;
}

thanks
although I'm not a hardcore coder, is it not better to use LIMIT 0,15 somewhere?

well me neither but of what ive seen the limit is usualy used in sql query.
the posted code is exactly your situation...and you have to play with it.
this can be simple...

I figured it out. here's the code:
Code:


<?php

if (eregi("block-Forums.php", $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) {
    Header("Location: index.php");
    die();
}

global $prefix, $db, $sitename;

$result = $db->sql_query("SELECT forum_id, topic_id, topic_title FROM ".$prefix."_bbtopics ORDER

BY topic_time DESC LIMIT 15");
$content = "<br>";
while ($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result)) {
    $forum_id = intval($row['forum_id']);
    $topic_id = intval($row['topic_id']);
    $topic_title = $row['topic_title'];
    $title1 = substr("$topic_title", 0,18);
    $row2 = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT auth_view, auth_read FROM

".$prefix."_bbforums WHERE forum_id='$forum_id'"));
    $auth_view = intval($row2['auth_view']);
    $auth_read = intval($row2['auth_read']);
    if (($auth_view < 2) OR ($auth_read < 2)) {
        $content .= "<a

href=\"modules.php?name=Forums&amp;file=viewtopic&amp;t=$topic_id\">$title1...</a><br>";
    }
}



?>
