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?
Nice modification! Can you let us try it?.. Thanks

Hi,

I reinstalled and its working fine now. Thanks.

Qs:

I need the thread/thread starter column to be aligned to the right. (Arabic forum). How do I do that?

How do i center the title?

I looked up the words in the phrase manager to translate them but couldn't find them. Thats how I always translate hacks. Am I missing something?

Sorry about the many questions.

Thank you.

Hi Yui. The mod is pretty simple. You will have to interpret this a little: I hard-coded some of the templates since I know my announcement forum is not going to change; this saves a query or two, for what it's worth.
forumhome_la

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

Links will have to be tweaked to suit.


forumhome_la_threads

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

And in Main CSS add this to the Additional CSS Definitions: (for the main skin you see on my forum default)

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

You will have to play with this to make it look right on your forum, I imagine, but it should get you started.

Thank you MimeSong Erk for sharing this with us.

It did not work so well with my style, so I think I have to modify your code to suit my style!

But honestly, your idea is nice.. I hope I will fix it soon.

Actually this is done in the order its posted, meaning the newest one at the top, oldest one at the bottom ( as you can see by the threadid ).

Can you please edit forumhome_la template, and change the align="center" or whatever it is currently to align="right" and you can translate it there also Sorry I have not use any vbphrases, but I will look forward to use it in the future

Thanks.

I got the thread/thread starter title aligned to the right but not the posts in that column. How do I change that?

When I added vbphrases I got an error.

I'm sorry to take up your time but could you show me what to change in the template?

Thanks Farjad, I can't believe I didn't see that in the first post.

Working on some updates to mine that will make it clearer when there have been posts in an announcement topic. I may post the changes when I am done or link to them, again if there is interest.

I have been pondering for hours if there is a way I can use this to have Latest # of threads for multiple forums. Like say I wanted to have 3 Lists.. one from forumid 1, next from forumid2, and lastly from forumid 3. And to have them all on seperate lists. Like example... I have a movies forum, music forum and sport forum.. I want to differentiate where the threads are coming from. I am 99% sure, the methods used in your mod could be used to do something like this. I just don't know exactly how to replicate your product to make this possible. If you're willing to help, i'd pay and release it on vb org with credit to you.

EDIT :: I still haven't found a way to put them all in the same table. Help me out here?
