Hi have these paths:

/blog/default.php <- main webpage
/forum/extern.php <- in here are all the forum files and the extern.php

I can't get the extern.php to work.

in my default.php I have added the following:


This does not work, if i put a file inside the blog folder and include it it works but it seems its not working If I try change to a file in another folder.

Can this be due to .htaccess or have I done anything else wrong?


I know the extern.php can display alot of stuff but I can only see how it displays the topic?

I want to have just like the punbb.org website

This is a topc
This is the message it self...bla bla bla
posted date | comments

next message...and so forth...can it be done with extern.php or must I do the rest with php/mysql code?

Can you guys fix the number formatting on the Replies/Views topics. Let it be 1,445 views instead of 1445!
Should be easy to fix for you experts! wink

Hmm, punBB or FluxBB...FluxBB or PunBB..."#¤"#¤"#¤%#"#¤%"¤#5

Is it the same project? Same code?
Or is fluxbb based on punbb code?

I see moderators and other users linking to fluxbb sites?

fluxbb looks to have the same theme as the punbb 1.3 beta!

I think we should have a template contest for the new version of punBB.
The winner gets its template in the final 1.3 package!

This could perhaps bring fourth some nice templates don't you think?

Cheers m8! But still make it default in the upcoming 1.3 release please!!!

This is surely a small thing to fix but wouldn't it be nice if the number for replies and read are show as 15,324 instead of 15324?

number_format or whats its called? Don't know how to fix it myself! sad

Looks more cleaner!

No other suggestions?

Nah, its not working.

I can include other things like include('include/test.php');
And in test.php it just says echo "test";

that works, but i can't get the extern.php to work?

Any suggestions?

Don't know, is there any way to see that information?
Is it possible to use /forum/extern.php?action=new&show=10&fid=1 or sumthing instead of the full url?

Hi, testing the extern.php function...

host files are here:


...and yes, i have changed the www.mydomain.com/forum to the exact path...
the first forum nr 1 is the news forum so it sould show about 4-5 posts...

But i still cant se any posts...

What have i missed?

Cool, thx paul!

I mean the look at the forum posts, simple coloured with rounded corners and the poster info to the right!
As it is today its like table formated and i dont know how complex the code is in punbb to try create phpbb3 lookalike theme...

Is it hard to create a template that looks like this for punBB?

Havent checked out the punbb code yet but i guess its built on tables and i dont know how to convert that into tables with rouned corners like the on i just posted! Looks great!

1. The numbers should be displayed with "," not 14345 views but instead 14,345 views!
2. Make a "Back to top" link or button so you can go to the top fast!
3. Sub-forums
4. Nice statistics page at first admin entrance page!
