Recent Forum Posts for webpage

Post by spacejam2k on April 19th 2012, 11:16 pm

Hey!

I'm completely oblivious to how one would go about adding a recent forum posts widget of some sort to their main home page.
I'm currently running a site for a league for certain video games (ps3), where we have chat on the main page.
I'd like to add a recent forum post widget or html code so members would be able to see recent posts without having to go directly to the forum page.

I've found a solution like using the RSS Feed and creating a widget, but found that the feed doesn't show who posted and when.

I have set up the forum using punbb.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

I know that my forum's RSS feed shows all the recent posts if you use the forums home page url. My forum is open for anyone to read and may be why the RSS feed works. Is your forums open for anyone to read? If you have it for members only to read the RSS won't be able to access the posts.

Ah, sorry for not being clear. The post does show up in the widget. It will show the title and reply but does not show who posted and when.

Oh I see. You might need a different reader then. Have you tried several to see what happens?


You might try adding your forums URL in this iframes code, it will display your entire site on your webpage. You'll probably want to adjust the width and size to your liking. That is an alternative to a reader.

Code:
<iframe
    src="YOUR SITE URL GOES HERE" height="1000" width="1000" name="Google" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" id="IFRAME1" marginheight="100" marginwidth="100">You need an iframes capable browser to view this content.</iframe>

Smile I have the forums embedded on to one of my pages using the iframe. However, since most of the members would be on the main (front page) in chat, I'd like to have a small widget about 170x520 that shows just recent posts.

Do you have any recommendations for rss readers? I'd really like to have one that shows who posted.

No I sure don't, but I'm not up on the readers out there. I don't know that readers show the author of the posts. Hopefully someone else will have an answer for you. Good luck.. Smile

Thanks, but I'm actually looking to put this on the main page of my website and not the actual forum.
