Hello everybody!

I recently have been searching for PunBB 1.3 Styles and I came across these pictures:

So I was wondering if somebody know what theme is that and where to download it.


Hello everybody,

Recently I decided to add some modification to my Punbb installation, but I had to face the fact that I don't have even a tiniest idea of how SQL queries are working in PunBB.

So far I tried everything I knew on this query which is supposed to bring first post of a topic created in a specific forum and display it as a news entry. However all I get is that it displays all posts made in that forum.

define('FORUM_ROOT', 'forum/');
require FORUM_ROOT.'include/common.php';

define('RECENT_POSTS_SHOW_POST', true); // Set to false to show topic subject only

$query = array(
    'SELECT'    => 'p.id, p.message, t.subject, t.poster, t.num_replies, t.posted, p.poster_id, t.num_replies',
    'FROM'        => 'topics AS t',
    'WHERE'        => 't.forum_id = 2 AND t.sticky = 0',
    'JOINS'        => array(
            'LEFT JOIN'        => 'posts AS p',
            'ON'            => 'p.topic_id = t.id'
    'ORDER BY'    => 't.posted DESC',
    'LIMIT'        => '0,10'
$result = $forum_db->query_build($query) or error(__FILE__, __LINE__);
$recent_posts = array();
while ($cur_post = $forum_db->fetch_assoc($result))
    $recent_posts[] = $cur_post;
// Print out posts
if (!empty($recent_posts))
    foreach($recent_posts as $cur_post)
        $message = str_replace("\n", "<br />", $cur_post['message']);
        $date = date("j  M  Y", $cur_post['posted']);
        echo '
        <p class="info">Written by <a href="'. FORUM_ROOT .'profile.php?id='.$cur_post['poster_id'].'" 
        title="'.$cur_post['poster'].'\'s profile">'.$cur_post['poster'].'</a> on '.$date.' | 
        <a href="'. FORUM_ROOT .'viewtopic.php?id='.$cur_post['id'].'" title="View Replies" >'.$cur_post['num_replies'].' Comments</a></p>
 else { echo '<p>We are sorry but no news were found in the database, if you believe this is an error, please notify the administrator.</p>'; }

Could somebody explain it please? I tried searching though the WiKi but there seems to be no articles about it.
Thanks a lot in advance! big_smile

Thanks all! Works great smile

Hello everybody,

I have been searching a way to make posts from a certain forum to appear on the frontpage as news, sadly without success so far. Then I found this:
http://punbb.informer.com/forums/topic/ … ied-forum/

So I was wondering if anybody could update it for 1.3 please, that would be really great!
Thanks a lot in advance in case somebody decides to do it.

Oh, didn't think of that, thanks! smile

Hello everybody,

As the title says I am wondering how can I delete the "Currently used extensions" from the footer of my forum. Is it possible?

Thanks a lot in advance.

After adding this code I've 2 errors.

Undefined index errors seem to appear within the PunBB in general, I have that error on my user list page, so I doubt it's because of the integration. I tried everything I knew to fix them, I still couldn't find a solution :s

Notice: Undefined variable: content in /var/www/pcmod/img/uploaded/index.php on line 162

<?php echo $content; ?>

What content are you trying to display?

If you modify your templates to suit your design then yes, you can easily integrate it visually.

Hello, I did that already but there is nothing about the user authentication in the Wiki.
Anyway, doesn't matter, I found the way, thanks for help anyway.

I wound how to do it. It's quite easy actually.

Integration of the PunBB 1.3 into your website (user authentication system)
Simply add this code at the first line of your code (in the very top)

define('FORUM_ROOT', 'forum/');
require FORUM_ROOT.'include/common.php';

// Replace 'forum/' by the directory name in which you have your punBB installation. Example:
If you have your PunBB forum under: www.yoururl.com/yourforum/ and your script in which
you want to use the user authentication is in www.yoururl.com/  then replace forum/ in define by 'yourforum/'

Once you do that, you can use $forum_user variable in your script, note that it is an array
which contains all the data about the user who's viewing the page. 
(Id, Group Id, Username, Email and so on...)

That's all smile
EDIT: Added that part to the PunBB 1.3 Integration in Wiki.

Greetings everybody,

I decided to make a website in which I count to use PunBB, however I would like to have only one user authentication system and I thought if it was possible to use the PunBB's one.

Does anybody know how to do so?

Thanks a lot in advance!
