What was the last time you were so excited to write an awesome topic for your forum then hopelessly watched it faded away and nobody cares? How about having some great threads, unique information that's only available on your forum, and you want all visitors instantly pay attention to them ? Think you would make announcements everywhere about those topics, then expect someone to click on the links? Maybe that isn't so good and professional at all. Even worse, you have to bump your own thread to get others attention. DnP Custom News may have a solution for you.

What does this little MOD do ?


As the matter of fact, topics in forum are displayed by some formatted orders. Either it is arranged by newest first, oldest first, or last replies, etc...at some point these topics will not be visible in the view of members anymore. Especially, for new visitors to your forum since they have no clue whether yours is a good forum or just a random half-dead community with nothing interesting. How could you show them how great your forum is, what information it has and what kind of fun can be found there? What you need is a manual list that looks automatic, absolutely informative and interactive, totally content-rich to the guests and even search engines. DnP Custom News Link allows you to place your best topics and urls into an article block that appears on your forum home index and makes it looks like a section of online newspaper homepage. This way, it is almost guaranteed you will freshen up your forum look and feel, attract more members to articles or threads that give best of your forum! Even better, DnP Custom News Link supports AJAX for instant page change without refreshing the whole forum index page.

I do think it is compatible with vb4.0, in fact no advanced vb3.0 modification would be compatible with vb4 at all. I'm unable to afford vb4 at the moment so I cannot develop MOD for it yet.

DnP was the one who's responsible for this project and unfortunately he has been caught up with many things recently. I'll put a reminder to him to finish it as soon as possible. And it'll be for the next version. Hopefully.

Downloaded and installed.

But I get this error after installation and then looking at my site.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare fetch_tag_list() (previously declared in /home/design/public_html/includes/class_bbcode.php:2228) in /home/design/public_html/includes/class_bbcode.php on line 2482

Any suggestions?

I'm using vb version 3.8.5

Just letting everyone know that TheBull over at Creativex got this mod working on vb4.1.5 but he won't share what he did to get it working. One of you all might have better luck getting the info out of him.
http://creativx.net/forums/
I'm pretty sure he won't help me out because I belong to a competing site http://virtualcustoms.net/ and there was a big rift over posting work from Virtual Customs on there site without permission and claiming it as there own, but I didn't follow it all that much so I don't really know. Needless to say when I asked him what he did to get it working he refused me and seemed to know exactly who I was. Said he knows how I feel about him and CreativeX even though I never got involved in the mess or said anything to or about them.
At any rate, someone here might have better luck with them, but don't count on it..
