Michael,

this has been working very well and I am liking it heaps. So thank you again.

I was wondering is there is a way to change the wording of "Author" in the far right row.

I understand it probably wasnt needed originally but I have used the code above so that it displays the last poster of the latest thread. So author is kinda wrong now.

I would like it to say last poster or something like that.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

Chris

im using it here if you need to see what ive done but go easy on me its my first every attempt at anything like this

I made it a phrase. Search for Author in the phrases.

WOW Thanks for the super quick ammendment. Your a champ.

Although I not sure where to find the phrases, Ill have a search for it. I am but a humble car detailer, far from a IT guru, but I manage to fumble my way through. Ill let you know how I go.

Many Thanks again

Chris

I realized that the auto-position is what is broken in v4, so I modifed the FORUMHOME template and added $latest in there, but all it does is just show $latest as text on the forum page.

Hello Michael,

just updated our forum to vB 4.0.3 and vbSEO 3.5.0 gold. Went completly smooth
Any chance of seeing this mod for vb4? It's the only one missing here.

Thanks,
Thomas
