PunBB Changing the Recent News Widget questions!

Post by Rukiafan on March 17th 2012, 6:55 am

I have a few codes I would like for changes to the recent news widget.

Problem 1- Is there any way I can have all my blogs on my website feed to the widget, not just 1 of them?

problem 2- Is there a way to change the widget design to something more modern looking?

You can use an html code and add it in a new widget Mr. Green

You have just to use CSS codes and edit it Lol

Does anyone have CSS codes, HTML, or Javascript for this?

Is there any way to do this?

Things that would be nice is showing the avatar of the poster of the article.
A new body with a different layout.

I'm afraid showing the avatar would be impossible as there's no way to 'fetch' it alongside the news item.

Being that you're using PunBB you can edit the news block by modifying the Portal > Mod_News template and by using css.

To use news items from various sources you're best bet is to make a custom RSS Widget, there's quite a few around the web so just google and pick one that you like.

You can find the RSS url of the forum you want to use by doing 'View Source', you should see something like:
Code:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="/feed/?f=82" title="Forms and Records Department" />

Grab the bit after href and add it to the end of your forum url to get the full address eg: www.myforum.forumotion.com/feed/?f=82

Punch that into the website your getting the RSS widget from and once your happy grab the code and paste it into a New Custom Widget.
