Solved Latest Topics and Blogs

Post by Rashmun on September 27th 2012, 2:35 am

1. How does one add the 'Latest Topics' feature in a forumotion forum?
2. Is it possible to have some forums (or some categories) in a forum format and some in the blog format?

1. Do you mean the widget?

I believe i do mean the widget. The 'Latest Topics' are visible on the right of the page as you read my post. Thanks for the link.

Administration Panel > Modules > Portal & Widgets > Forum Widgets
Activate the feature and add the widgets you want on the left or right side of the forum.

ok i just clicked on 'Yes' for 'Display Forum Widget' and its now displaying all kinds of widgets on the left of each forum including the home page:

http://sulekha.forumotion.com

I only want the 'Latest Topics' widget to be displayed on the right side of the screen and that also only inside a forum like the 'Main' forum and not on the home page of the forum.

Scroll down the page and remove the ones you do not want and move the Latest Topics one to the right side. You will need to change the right column to 180 at the top of the page.

This might explain it better - http://help.forumotion.com/t22589-forum-widgets

This was what it was looking like (see again below 'Forum widgets Management') before i made the changes (even though i did not save the changes they seem to have become permanent):

Are you sure you have it activated, because I do not see the widget on the homepage?
