Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

I tested it.
I've got many things to tell.
First, I think the miniportal should have been independant. For example, I tried puting the created index.php at the root of my site. It does not work. The index must be in /forum to work. I thought miniportal aimed at having a home page for a whole site. That's not the case here.
Second, the problem is that in the created index, you have the announcement of the forum. We don't always want to have the same annoucement on a home page and on a forum. It would be good to have the possibility to delete this annouce only for homepage, not for forum.
I think we don't see enough the title of each news. It's the same characters as the text. We should use a bigger style for these titles.
Moreover, I think news should be separated better. It would be good to have a line between eache news, though posted the same day.
There should be a link 'comments' to enable visitors to comment each news as the original newsgenerator has.
Also, I did not find how to display more than 2 days of news. How to put 10 days?

Example here http://www.pluriservices.net/forum/test1.php

otherwise, great work Connohrd

Ludo,

someone got a demo of this up and running?

yeh www.mypunbb.com and http://forum.mypunbb.com for the news and the sidebar respectively


Ludo:

well first off, its a miniportal  not a full cms or even a proper portal to make it independant would require more modifications to punbb e.g. you would need to change header.phpto have either the base setting or change the url to the style

second, again this would require more editing to punbb

as for styling you can change it how you want just look for the html in the punnews funtion

the title of the news is a link to the post

it displays the number of posts you tell it to its not related to the number of days

finally, this was made as a basic guide into creating a simple portal as a frontend to punbb, its not for people that want punbb as part of a big site but more for people who want to add a page or 2 to punbb

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

What would I need to edit to get avatars in the news page?

get rid of PUN_QUIET_VISIT but it means if you go to the news page but not the forum then your unread posts will be marked as read

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

well i don't recommend it but...

if ($num_users > 0 && $num_users < 10)

change the 10 to whatever number you want or remove

 && $num_users < 10

to remove the upper limit

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

thx again for the info

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

is there anyway of making it display info from a category instead of a forum or how can i make it display news from more then one forum id

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

there is a way but it would require the code editing, i might add it later (i'm just working on the wiki mod release)

How I can separate news from one day, in index.php?

P.S. my bad english sad

44

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

I have tried to this and am having some trouble.

I created the news page first and called it news.php.  It worked great and my forum still worked.  Then I changed index.php to forum.php and news.php to index.php.  I made the other changes told to do.  Then when I went to the site I saw the news page and had the message at the top that I was logged in.  When I clicked on the link in the news or on the forum link at the top, I went to the forum but it said I was not logged in.  If I clicked on "login" I went to the login and after logging in (again), I was returned to the forum but was not logged in. 

Any suggestions?  Another change I have made is to remove the links to register from both the header and the login page because I want a members only forum.  Could doing that have caused this?

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

could be a cookie problem? could you login to your forum fine before hand?

Austral: you would need to edit the news function

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

how would I get the news page to look something like this
http://shinko.freeprohost.com/portal.php

I would use that but it's sort of a hacked version ><

47

Re: PunBB Miniportal v1.2.x

Yes I could log into the forum fine before changing index.php to forum.php and the necessary changes to viewtopic, viewforum, and functions.
