Question Add "fake forum" on forum index page?

Hello,

Take a look here:
http://www.fashion-forums.com/index.php

Notice at the top under Last Post where it says Today Adsense.

How do I add a forum listing like that? I need it to be the same...not category, N/A for threads and posts and Today Adsense for Last Post.

I tried editing a bunch of different templates, but couldn't get it.

Thanks in advance!

As far as I'm aware it's an external link that you can enter when you're setting up a forum. You'll see boards do that to link to outside sites or affiliations. Go to your forum setup and where you see "Forum Link" enter the link and your forum will display as your example.

Wow!! I am amazed at the admins creativity... that sounds like cheating visitors to click that link which looks like a forum. The admin has quite neatly added a google code in forumhome template so that it looks like a forum and members would click the link and generate revenue for admin. I wonder what google has to say about this tactic. Quite smart nonetheless.

Haha, I've been doing this on my site for a while, it works great =D

I have the Last posts / threads / posts fields empty, but of corse you can add those in.



Put this right above $forumbits on your forumhome template

You may want to adjust the "colspan" to fit your column scheme.

N8,

Thanks! That worked great. I'm 99.9% sure google won't allow you to have "Sponsored Links" above the ad. I've been warned about doing that on a different part of my site.

Here is my forum integration of the "fake forum" in case anyone wants to see:

Thanks again for the html,

Tim

Go to your forum homepage and view the page source.

Just grab one of the forum tables from your code and use that.
