A problem has come up for me after updating first page news add-on to the latest version (3.4 - 27-Aug-2019): before the upgrade, I was able to display two sets of news on my non miniBB-powered home page. This is the setup--I've shortened the file names here for illustration purposes:
The php scripts would be pulling content from different forums, each would have a corresponding template, but both share the same "cell" template.
I call the news using a simple include <!--#include virtual="/path/script"-->.
The old set-up worked fine; but after the upgrade, I have only one set of content displaying, but not the other (i.e., news works, but not news2). I have checked the path to the templates, checked the $b1 variable in the script files ...
Years ago, someone else reported an issue -- same symptom, but I am not sure whether it is the same cause, given the age of the first report: https://www.minibb.com/forums/msg.php?id=25184
Please help. :(
