Which will be even easier, still!

Don't forget to change the title of the thread (when you go for a HTL installer) to have the [HTL] prefix, to denote that it has a .htl installer file. Makes for much easier checking out for people who want to see which hacks are HTL-hacks

(of course, you're free not to do it, but hey, it helps people, and it's not that big a hassle )

Add ABOVE that:

Note: Change 5 in this part of the query to change the number of threads to show: DESC LIMIT 5
Change ORDER BY lastpost to ORDER BY dateline to stop it showing threads with new posts.
^^ See that comment above the relevent section of code in the install instructions.

Great Hack! Anyway... some problems though

Hi NTLDR,

I love this hack!

Anyway - Some problems resist:
Collapsing this section collapses it. <- o.k.
BUT - it doesn't remember the status (collapsed/uncollapsed)
To be honest, it's acting very weird ... sometimes the icon doesn't change... sometimes it's the wrong icon... sometimes it stays collapsed... sometimes not.

And if there was no post icon chosen for the post it shows a broken image link in front of every thread listed in the box.

Maybe you give it a try and recheck those issues?
Would be great to use this hack fully functional!
Thanks!

btw: I'm using it with the RC3 version. But I guess that couldn't be it?!

Best regards...
Goyko

In your FORUMHOME template find:


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

Replace with:


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

That should fix the expand/collapse issue.

Do you have a default icon specified in your options? If so what have you entered there?

Oh .. I was looking for a radio button :ermm:

Yes I have entered "images/icons/icon1.gif" in this field.
And the icon exists.

But ... shame on me ... the problem is NOT the default icon!
There are only problems, if an icon has been chosen for the post!
So it's the exact opposite, from what I was telling before.
Weird!

Sorry for misleading you ... should have observed more carefully!

Best regards...
Goyko
