Hello,

Recently I installed miniBB software and so far I am very pleased with it :)

Is it posible for the "first page news" plug-in to folow exactly the order ot topics in the forum -
if there are some sticky topics on top, the plug in to show them always on top aswell?

Thank you.

It is possible with custom modification - but you only have one forum? What if you have more than 1 forum - which sticky topics should appear? What about closed topics? :)

Thank you for the replay.

I have more than one forum, but only one will be shown in front page.
My idea is to show on first page exactly the structure of one of the forums( sticky topic, resent replay topic etc.)
To use it like kinf of info-board.

It's very possible, but needs some custom (and not easy) work. You may contact Paul (using the Contact link below) and he should be able to do it.

Hi,

I decided to put only one forum "in the plug-in" which is read-only, so topics will stay the way they are posted.

But another problem appears - when I click on "more news" link at the bottom of the plug-in, It says "The topic doesn't exist...." instead of
bring me to the particular forum.

What could be the reason for that?

There could be many reasons.

One of them is that URL in the add-on doesn't relate to the URL in the topic you are redirected to.
Just compare these hyperlinks, and... you should be a step closer to solve this riddle :)

Yes but why. Shouldn't "more news link" point automaticaly to the forum described in "$displayForums" settings of the plug-in?
I had to make it point to the correct forum by hand, do not know if this is the right way.
