Uninstalled for now.. It appears threads made in hidden sections (non-public view) can see the thread titles in latest posts.. this is a big no. Thanks to this plugin, people saw secret topic names that wasn't meant for the public.

I found many mistakes while translating the mod to Arabic language.
First of all you should write ( & ) as ( & ) in any HTML/XHTML code
in the line #71, you have to replace it with this:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



Another simple mistake in the line #67, ( <div width="100%" ...... )
the default width value for the div tag is 100%, so you don't have to write width="100%", although attribute width cannot be used for the div tag, and more silly errors on line #67, which is in the table tag, you should use quotation mark in the border, cellspacing, and cellpadding attributes.

Last mistake is that you forgot to close the <b> tag on line #67..


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



------

Again thanks for the great mod, and I really appreciate your effort on making it.
Sorry if my post isn't well organized because I was reading your code and writing the mistakes I find here :D..
Hope you pay more attention on XHTML while making ur next mod :).

Regards,
Ibrahim Moh'd

25 Dec 2009, 17:13

Code:

---------------



You started the <tr> & <td> tags without starting the <table> tag..

ArbStar
25 Dec 2009, 17:15
& you should put alt attribute to all <img> tags

Edit:

Line #12 & #22:
<!- DesiHearts Latest Posts -->
<!-/ DesiHearts Latest Posts -->
you should use:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------


instead of:

If the original Contributor had not posted the Mod, With or without Mistakes, You would NOT have had anything to Translate to Arabic. As a Helping hand, you could have Posted a Corrected English Version. It Just seems like it would have been a decent thing to do.

i guess you were having to much fun pointing out mistakes. And It does say BETA which is prone to have Mistakes.

3 weeks? quite some time. Does the fix includes the private section fix arb? I uninstalled it because it was showing hidden post names to the public that they shouldn't even see. I was also hoping that this plugin can include AJAX updates so it'll update automatic with a notification that the thread/post has been updated. :)

To put the statistics below the navbar download the attached XML file and upload it from your ACP, then follow these instructions:

1) Edit FORUMHOME template and find:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------

2) Add the following code below it:


Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.

3) Save the template, and you're done :).

To uninstall it just reset the FORUMHOME and replace the modified XML with the original one.

Is there any chance we can have it more natural looking? The way it is right now doesn't fit in very well.

Perhaps having it so it looks more like each forum category, like the SS attached.

I have included a screenshot of what it looks like on my forum, I think I'm on the bandwagon of having it look more "forum" friendly myself.

If it were encompassed like the chat box is and the forum below, I think it would look more "fitting". Just a suggestion.

removed... again! It still shows thread title names within hidden sections to the public!

If you have been following along with this thread, you would understand that you can filter forums that won't be listed in the latest post, although they aren't permission based, it's a great workaround imo.

I removed my admin forums, but left the "members" forum. It's a donation based forum. Meaning users who have donated to our site, get extra forums for their support and it's great when posts are made there, and others can see, but not view. Great incentive for them to support the forum.

Hello!

Itīs a cool Add-On ... compliment! But I personally would prefer:

Latest Threads and Newest Members on Forum Home

Because there are so much more new posts than new threads in my forum everyday.
For the new posts I use a block of the forums sidebar, where about 25 new posts are displayed ...

Unfortunately I am not able to change the script to my needs. :o

Make sure that you Edited the FORUMHOME template & uploaded the (latestposts_navbar.xml) product instead of the old one (dont forget to delete the old one first).

The latest one you uploaded (click here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1948564&postcount=94) for link to post) with the new style to make it fit in better with the forum shows posts in forums that have restricted perms.

For example, I have a moderator only section on my forum but when I log out, the moderator posts still show up in the latest post list.

Can you please fix this? Also, adding it so we can customize the character limit would be awesome. Keep up the great work, you're doing a very good job and we all love you for it! :D

I'll do the "Customize char. limit" & "Latest threads/posts ?" in ACP.

but for the permission thing i dont think i'll be able to do it, but i'll try my best :)

Sorry to be a feature creep, but the old Latest X Posts also had the option to exclude certain users from the statistics. This is because some forums (including mine) have RSS Feed users that are created solely to repost RSS feeds from other websites automatically. I would like to be able to exclude RSS Feed users from the stats because their post count is way higher for the simple reason that the user is a bot that reposts content automatically.

My users can see thread titles to threads that they dont have permission to see.

We have a staff section and only staff are allowed there but with this plugin all users can see the thread titles in the Latest Posts section.

Would be cool to update it so they can't see forum titles for forums they dont have permission to view.

Hey, great job on this. However, I would like to increase the number of characters shown in the topic titles on the latest posts listings so the latest posts stretches out a bit and I would like to remove Newest Members to make room for that.

I tried going to the Plugin Manager but it was only php code, so I looked for the template and found it under forumhome_latestposts but seems like the code I need to edit is in {vb:raw latest_posts} and I don't know where to find that. Could you help out please?

Edit: Oh yeah dang, I have the same problem as the above posters - I can see threads listed from the staff forum even as a guest.

Edit2: I read through the whole thread and found the updated XML with forum excludes. Great job. Still would like help with my original problem though. Many thanks!

Yeah, you can just tell us where to go to edit the table or div code to remove columns, etc. I was looking at it a minute ago and realized I'd like to get rid of the # column in each stat - totally unnecessary.

I removed Newest Members but now I am faced with another issue. I would like to add the forum name in where the latest post is from - like an additional column with that data. This is how it was in Cyb's Forum Stats hack and I really liked it. I tried coding it myself but got a database error when I put it up live and I just don't know how to do it. All I really need is the code to insert - like:



Code:
---------------
Code is only visible to licensed users, and only when logged into the forums.
---------------



I know you need to query the forum table and get the forum[title] from there so all I need is a little code modification in what I pasted above. Many thanks!

Hi everybody
I am wondering if this product can help me hide some statistics, especially new users, if I want to.
My problem is that I am looking for some hack or add-on or whatever in order to be able to hide the advanced forum statistics.
Since some people are registering on my forum with obscene names, I don't want these people to appear on the statistics until they have been approved by myself or a mod.
Any help would be immensely appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Italcro

Has this been modified yet to include an auto refresh?

Say user adjustable from 10/60 seconds?

It would prevent the need for people to reload the entire page, when the mod itself would do that.
