Is it possible to fetch the forum name also while querying for last discussions using the following modification? I mean I want the forum name also to be fetched to display in the alt/title text of forum icons in the last discussions for easy accessibility to my users.

Modification:

File bb_func_ldisc.php

line# 35

if($cols=db_simpleSelect(0, $Tt, 'topic_id, topic_title, topic_poster, topic_poster_name, topic_time, forum_id, posts_count, topic_last_post_id, topic_views, forum_name','','','',$orderBy,$viewlastdiscussions )){

and then specify:

$forum_name=$cols[9];

We'll implement forum title in latest discussions in the next release, but in a different manner. Thanks.

How it will be implemented.

In bb_func_vforum.php, find this line:

$fIcon[$forum]=$cols[3];

right AFTER it, add this:

$fTitle[$forum]=$cols[1];

After that, {$fTitle[$forum]} will be available in templates/main_last_discuss_cell.html

Hi

Could someone tell me how I go about listing the forum the topic belongs to after the topic name in the latest discussions list when a user logs in.

So far I can get the forum listing beside the topic but in each row the forum is the same name (i.e the last forum in the forum list above the latest discussions list).

I suspect this is because it is the last value in the $forum variable.

Many thanks,

Fergal.

Don't understand what you're trying to achieve, but probably the variable you need to paste in templates/main_lastdiscuss_cell.html is:

{$fTitle[$forum]}

i.e. the link to this forum will be

<a href="{$main_url}/{$indexphp}action=vtopic&amp;forum={$forum}">{$fTitle[$forum]}</a>

or the corresponding mod_rewrite URL if you use it.

I have used this ...

$fIcon[$forum]=$cols[3];

right AFTER it, add this:

$fTitle[$forum]=$cols[1];

and it has worked but not with regard to more discussions?

Not working on my forum, though it is heavily customised.

I'm not sure what are you doing and what is not working.

You are taking examples from the message which is 8 years old.
In miniBB, all that things are added by default time ago.
You don't have to modify core script, if you are about that.

Yes I have confused the issue a bit. I found the reference to the $fTitle[$forum]=$cols[1] in bb_func_vforum.php so I could see that was in place. I then used {$fTitle[$forum]} as mentioned in the main_last_discuss_cell.html which works as intended but only on the latest discussion page, once I click on page 2 (more file?) it no longer works on my forum.

Got it.

You need to paste {$fTitle[$forum]} not just in Latest Discussions template (main_last_discuss_cell.html or main_modern_lcell.html depending on your front layout), but also in the topics template - main_topics_cell.html.
This template is used to display paginated forum sections.

Yep. That did it.

Thanks
