Re: recent topics

OK, well, a couple things
A. extern.php only shows what guests can see. on your forum, guests can't see anything and thus extern.php shows no topics
B. It appears your server has disabled URLs in includes: there's not much you can do. You could use the News Generator plugin though

As for including it in a table, under normal circumstances you would most likely just put the output in a div (look at the Recent posts sidebar for to see what I mean)

Re: recent topics

so ther is nothing i can do since my server disables urls in the include what ever that means tongue

Re: recent topics

Even if your server allowed you to include remote files using URLs, you would still have the issue of extern.php not showing anything.
I mean, I can write some workaround code to get around the URL issue but I can't make your forums viewable by guests tongue

Re: recent topics

how do you work news generator? :S lol

Re: recent topics
It's just a plugin, it will generate static HTML for a given forum (so to keep it current you would have to run it using cron somewhat often) wink

Re: recent topics

i got that but how do i make the news generate into a table on the index?

Re: recent topics

You include the file you generate into whatever HTML you have (I gave the Recent Posts sidebar for as an example)
