It looks as though you did not install the main 'product'

Working perfectly for me straight from the box today - goodstuff (Y)


Although...
On the second and further pages the $post[postcount] shown isn't technically correct,
the attached .xml is how I sorted such a minor cosmetic thing, shared for others and can be included in the zip if it seems sensible


**edit**
removed my version as insane-topics' is nicer & cleaner: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=751527

The reason for the post count on first post , second page is due to it is a stock template.

I may do some template work later but in all rights it needs no post number on it, such as vb.org does not show a post number on theirs.

yep, I'm gonna remove the post count from the first post template too, but on the second+ pages the other posts will be numbered wrong as well.

As I said, it's just cosmetic as I don't know if postcount is used for anything at all!

Ya they can be some what confusing at first, due to there are two places to import xml files.

Hope is working well now

So, what's the concensus here now? Do we remove the postcount or leave it alone as is?

It does not 'hurt' anything, it just tosses the number off by one (but if you use the go to newest and all that it works right)

I plan to try out phlogiston code after I get back from boating, if it works as well as it looks, then I will release an update with it (per his permission)

Ok, great! I might hold off installing it until you do the upgrade. I clicked the install button though.

Updated with the new postnumber fix (I changed it a tad so it does not show the post count to the first post on other pages)

If you wish to apply this fix use this file in 'plugins'.

The zip has also been updated with the new product.

Thanks phlogiston for pointing out this issue and offering code

Can't we just re-import the product and "allow overwite"?

I did not choose that route due to I have seen others have alot of trouble with that (update)

And I find it just as easy to solve one trouble with an update plugin, and fix zip for all those who dl after.

that's probably a more expected behaviour actually, and I'm glad you tidied up the if()
I knew mine was too messy to be the easiest way but I've always had a blind spot for matching firstpostid!


/me deletes his own version & uses insane-topics'

Ya it was a minor change of yours, not much though.

I allowed it to show post number 1 in first page, after that it just shows no post count number for the first post....... seemed cleaner to me.
