Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This will display the last 5 blogs on the home page blow the What's Going On box. See screenshot for example.

Installation is easy, just import the product and make the template edit.

Update 9/2/07: Removed the template edit from the What's going on box and added it below. With the table structure it makes more sense in this modification. If you have already installed it, apply the template edit again.

RSS_Instructions
This is an alternative method to the above that will display the last 10, this was taken from one of the admins over at vbulletin.com that originally wrote it for the latest threads and modified for this. It's display is not as clean but it will not show blogs that are hidden and I have yet to work that out for the above method.

Yeah, it's a great system but it needs more visible than just the "Blogs" link in the navbar to get some attention.

Thanks. I will probably look at this for the vbAdvanced portal that I want to create for my new site. Actually want blogs to be the main focus.

Is it just my setup or is the collapse button not working? I am trying to add a completely new box with a thead above the "What's going on?" box, but for some reason the tables get all weird.

Shouldn't the code below do the trick?

It is basically the same code, I've just added the <thead> and moved the collapse button up to the thead section.

Okay, is it working for you? If so let me know and I will update the template edit.

Eric, the output is correct and the design is fine, but the collapse button is not working.

it's not working on my code snippet, and I can't get your collapse button to work either I'm looking over some tutorials on collapse buttons right now..

Can't get it to be friendly with my template. It works, it just doesn't look right.

I think from a design perspective it would match better if each row in the results had its own alt1 cell, this would then give the grey lines between ceels that are in common use throughout vB (in the default style anyway).

If I remove the USC Ultimate Side Column edits then it will work otherwise is messes the whole page up.
