    Latest Forum discussions - on phpbb

    Dear All

    Can someone please explain how I can duplicate a theme I see on many a forum related website.

    I want to place my "latest forum discussions" on my index page.

    I really like how sitepoint have it layed out. I currently use a phpbb board.

    Looking forward to your replies

    Hi,
    Try http://www.phpbbhacks.com. That has to be the biggest PHPbb Mod list around.

    Hi,
    I found this one with a quick search. If you are using PHP for your homepage I believe this would work.

    Ok. This looks a little to tough for me.

    I don't use php.

    So if I'm prepared to pay someone to help me. should this post be moved?

    Regards

    I've got a little script I've coded to do the latest x many discussions Only works with mySQL (which is what most people use). I'd be happy to install it for you, it's relativly easy.

    It's called the Glance Mod.

    I have it on my site - see http://www.scifiminds.net for an example of it in use.

    If you have issues with a particular forum software then it's highly recommended you take quieries about it to the actual forum software in question.

    Here it's taken you a week just to get the mod name. I wouldn't be surprised if it would have taken hours or even minutes at the phpbb support forums.
