vB Version: 3.0.7 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 3
Released: 26 Mar 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 20
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

I finally got around to addressing some issues with the 'Detailed Latest Posts' hack I posted last year. This version uses a cron file to generate and cache the required data, saving your index from having to do all the work. This should also reduce the cpu load on large boards since the timing of the update is now controlled by the cron task. This has been tested and is live on my own board. Full instructions for installation are included in the download. For a demo please visit my board via the homepage listed in my profile.

All comments, suggestions, and other related discussion are welcome. Please inform me immediately upon discovering an error, either with the hack or the documentation.

I have 4 categorys that provide RSS news feeds and don't want those to appear.

Edit /includes/cron/detailedlatestposts.php and add the following...


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

...so that it reads...


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

...replacing 1, 2, 3, and 4 with your four values. Let me know if this does not do the trick.

[EDIT]

Just make sure that whatever ID''syou use are for the forums the posts directly reside in, and not a parent forum, or one that is marked as no-post.

Looks good on your cafe too. Personally, I think I'd switch the alt class used though. Your darker color might look better.



Expect a minor update either tonight or tomorrow that will add this feature as a variable and one or two minor xhtml url goofs. You can change these manually if you wish. In the forumhome_latestpostbits template, there are some urls that use & instead of & .

Just a quick update...

I am going through a major overhaul, both in format and concept, of my forum. Until that is complete, I am putting further development of this on hold. Please be patient with me during this time. I will post the update mentioned earlier shortly after the renovation is complete.

Thanks.

Um, this is like three years old. I'm not even sure if I will ever revisit this. The vBa CMPS has a recent news module that has more options. There's no point really. But you never know...
