Latest discussions displayed ABOVE forums?

Been setting up my own MiniBB forum the past days. Found 99% of the tweaks I want to do (quite a few). I can not, however, figure out how do display the latest discussions table ABOVE the forum table. Its stuck down below as by default. Any ideas/suggestions?

Just move all the content from templates/main_forums.html to the templates/main_last_discussions.html (at the end)

Thnx! Working like a charm :D

ps. Perhaps you could add this "feature" to setup_options.php in the future? ie, 0=below main fourms, 1=above main forums?

Why to add this as a feature, if you already just can edit a template?

Can you use this method to move the latest dicussions to it's own page, with a link to it on the main page?

How would you call a new page/template?

I think I may have found it


I assume you have to add a link to the menu bar(or anywhere) with a the following link

We think, you need to get 1st page news plugin from downloads and install it on any page you want.

Whilst I see what you mean, it's not functional like the latest discussions section, i.e. with icons, poster and update details etc.

I want the latest discussions exactly as it is, but on a seperate page.

Well, solution you've mentioned really displays latest discussions on a separate page - but this page is within forums layout. If you want to display them somewhere on your own page, this is more difficult task.

Then I think it will do what I want, I do still want it in the forum, just not on the 1st page.

I will give it a try.

Here is a simpliest PHP script example file which you may try to create separately (I've tested it with latest miniBB release, naming it ld.php and placing into a forums directory; all code is copied/pasted from the original miniBB files):

define ('INCLUDED776',1);

include ('./setup_options.php');

include ($pathToFiles.'setup_'.$DB.'.php');
include ($pathToFiles.'bb_cookie.php');
include ($pathToFiles.'bb_functions.php');


if($user_id!=0 and isset($langu) and $langu=str_replace(array('.','/',''),'',$langu) and file_exists($pathToFiles."lang/{$langu}.php")) $lang=$langu;
elseif($user_id==0 and isset($_GET['setlang']) and $setlang=str_replace(array('.','/',''),'',$_GET['setlang']) and file_exists($pathToFiles."lang/{$_GET['setlang']}.php")) {$lang=$setlang; $indexphp.='setlang='.$setlang.'&';}

include ($pathToFiles."lang/$lang.php");



echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_last_discussions'));

Thanks Team, I will give that a try too.

I'll let you know how I get on.
