Last post on forum home, working version
Mod Version: 1.00, by Scott MacVicar (Member) Scott MacVicar is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 85
Released: 21 Sep 2001 Last Update: Never Downloads: 10
Not Supported  

I had tried a version suggested by someone else instead of my own and well, all it did was send the load average up by about 10 times what it was.

This version inserts the last title into the forum database when it is updating the last post name and time. There is no difference in loading time as everything is called normally by vBulletin.

This works on 2.0.x and 2.2.x

PPN, if you move a thread, will it display the correct title? That was the problem in all the other "Last post on forum home" versions.

yes, i just tested it and it worked ok, but for some reason it left the date and last poster the same in the forum it was being moved from, i will have a look at the vB code just now for that reason.

Delete
Merge
Edit
Copy
all work well its just the move one.

ok delete works, it just doesn' t work if the post being deleted is the only post in the forums.

In an unhacked version it still shows date and name even if the hack is not installed, a bug in vBulletin maybe?

anyway everything works apart from if your delete/moving a thread which is the only one within the forum.

Unhappy

After I tried out the other 2 hacks, I thought this one works.

But it doesn't. I'm running 2.0.3 and either I'm gettin' a Parse Error (as you mentioned the variable in your hack "$form['lasttitle']") or nothing appears ($forum[lasttitle]).

What I'm doing wrong ?

Regards,
Chris.

As you stated in your installation textfile
In the control panel go to the "forumhome_lastpostby" template
within it you may add $form['lasttitle'] to show the last thread title to be posted to, i chose the following format for my board.
(I think the parse error occured while the writing ($form('lasttitle) was'nt legal)

I changed it to this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Nothin' happened.
(I think there is nothing in the variable "$forum[lasttitle]" or it's also not legal, therefore nothing appears)

Regards,
Chris.
