Yep, the product was updated..

I've noticed if your forum ID had 3 digits (i.e. above 99) then this would not work..

My announcements forum ID was above 100 and it did not work..

It worked with other forums though which their IDs digits less than 3..

Can this be fixed?

Ops! Sorry, I forgot to say THANK YOU in the begining.. So here it is, although it is late.. THANK YOU.

Ok, now to our topic..

No, none of SQL errors occurred.. everything was fine.

I tried with all my forums, and it worked so well..

But, when I added a 3-digits number as a forum ID, it would not work at all.

I thought maybe my announcement forum was impaired (stupid idea), but I deleted it and opened a new one.. and the same problem occurred, nothing is shown, as my forum ID is above 99.

I added new posts as an attempt, so might it work.. but nothing

I tried IDs such as 14, 46, and 49, and they worked great.

Any idea about what's going on with this hack?

lol guess what!! It works so well now..

I have no sticky threads in the announcement forum, and when I've imported your updated version it has not worked.. I've almost despaired of it.

Yet, my other forums have stickies, but the hack has worked with them!

I just tried my last attempt and chose NO from "Sticky only?" options, and guess what!! It has worked so well

Now everything is fine.. and I have clicked INSTALL

Thanks

And I have a question..

How can I colour the annoucement threads titles in this hack?.. I think if they are red, they will look nicer..

And the word "Announcement", can it be on the middle instead of being on the left?

I really like this plug, and have skinned it to be a lot more concise - I'd be willing to share if anyone is interested, it is not complex. You can see at www.rmxp.org

I have a question about how the topics in the FA block are ordered. On my forum as I post this, the 3 latest announcements are:
  • No October backup.
  • Dragon Kid Image Dump
  • RMXP.org's downtime: The whole story
in that order. However, the chronological order of which has the most recent posts is:
  • Dragon Kid Image Dump
  • No October backup.
  • RMXP.org's downtime: The whole story
Why is the FA bit not updating as fast as the forum listing itself?
