Well, this doesn't modify any php, nor use a plugin, so i wasn't sure exactly where to stick it :p

Anyhow, this is a port of the vBExternal for vb 3.0.7, so look at this thread for more information: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=81943

Enjoy :)

and hope have adding basic bbcode support eg url and bold to the news part?

Zero Tolerance 13 Jun 2005 16:21

Yup, full parsing for bbtags and emoticons/smilies + auto URL correction (no red-x's) :)

Thanx was a little unsure has it was not working on my 3.0.7 but i just seen that was my mistake when i was editing the code so it only pulls so much of the text and adds a read more link.

Heres a screen shot for anyone who wants to see what this hack does :)

This is very, very nice and easy to use! I'm loving it. It's very well done and getting it to work and look how you want is just editing simple HTML. Thanks!

Is it just me getting database errors? I'll see if I can get the query which is failing on me...

MrTosty,

If you want help on your query problem, please post the exact error you are getting.

Errors may occur if you have used a function incorrectly, please specify what you have used on your web page, thank you :)

I used a smilie in one of my posts, it's not showing the image as its trying to retrieve it from "http://www.example.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif". How would I go about changing example.com/forums to fit me? I've looked over the directions several times, but may have missed something.

You need to update your vboptions, it uses your setting from there, go to your acp, vb options, site name / url etc..., update the forum url :)

I've just installed this and it was just along the lines of what I was looking for

Just wondered if there is an easy way to get the posts to show up just like the posts do in the forum rather than just a boring old box?

And also can it pull the footer from the forums to use on the main news page as well ?

You can change the template of the output, look at the html files inside the vBExternal/ directory.

As for the forum footer, i'm afraid not, the purpose of this modification is to extract dta to your website, not make it look like your forum.

I think I've got problems beyond vBexternal... When upgrading my test forum to 3.5.0b1 from 3.0.7, it seemed like some of the updates applied extremely quickly, and i reckon something may have stuffed up... the DB error page isn't recognising my technical email addy, hence not sending the error via email with the query, so i can't seem to find out what specifically is going wrong...

Besides that, the page i'm pulling vBexternal news onto, has many many includes here and there, many of which are pulling data out of vbulletin here and there... on top of that, one of the includes is already calling global.php, which may be my problem?

Either way, i might do a fresh install as my test bed, then go from there. I'll just have to figure it out myself, because i have my own custom shonky coding all over the shop, and it's probably not a vBexternal problem at all, because everyone else seems to have no errors...

Cheers for the help anyways :)

Sorry to bother, but I didn't see a function to pull out upcoming events and holidays? Would this be possible to do or is it too complex?

Thanks!

How do you set the number of characters that appear with a news snippet? I would prefer to display the whole piece of news.
