Display the last posted topic (thread) title link along with username and date/time

Post by VS on November 19th 2012, 9:08 pm

Hello,
I have a question on how to display "the last posted topic (thread) title" along with the username and date/time.

For example:main forum->topic->post.
I have a main forum and number of topics (threads) under that forum. When a user adds a post in one of the topics (threads) in that forum, the main forum only shows the user who made the post with date/time in the forum grid. But is it possible to also display the topic title (with link) along with username and date/time, so that when the link is clicked, it directly takes to the last post, rather than having to first click the forum title, then the topic link (the page number link) and then to the last post.

Thanks in advance!

Well, for what I know, it's in the skin of the user who made it since I haven't actually encountered your type of problem with other forums since they always display the last post to me Smile

Also, by chance, did you ever try to highlight the said link you wanted? Your text might've blended with the background to the point you can't see it anymore.

And on another note, in case others will help you which I'm sure they will, can you please post your forum url as well as a screen of your problem?

Hi Frances.
Thanks for your reply. This is my forum.
http://ilayaraja.forumms.net/
If you see the grid, it has these fields; Forum, Topics, Posts, Last Posts.
Our forum has one main forum and number of sub forums.

My question is on the "Last Posts" Column.

1. The "Last Posts" column only shows who has posted the last post with date/time. Is it possible to add the last thread title (with link containing the recent post) in the "Last Posts" column for each sub forum along with the user and date/time.
2. Also the main forum should show the last thread title (with link to the last post) which had the recent post.

I know there is a "Recent Topics widgets" which displays a scrolling grid of recent posts link, but that is a separate widget. I want to have that link inside the "Last Posts" field. Is that possible?

Please let me know if this is clear.

It is possible, but yeah, I really have never such encountered a problem like this one and I'm not sure how to deal with it since all forums I saw have all of these.

But yeah, sorry I can't help you with this one. Switching to another forum version or having another skin installed MIGHT help. Apart from that, I know nothing of this.

I somehow made to work to show the links on 'Last Posts' column by changing
Admin Panel->Display->Structure and Heirarchy->Heirarchy section->Show last topic titles on index-> Yes

Still the link is only on the last topic title and not on the last post on that topic title. When I click that link, it only goes to the first post on that topic and not on the last post on that topic. Can I get the link for the last post (I don't know how to get the post id) of the last topic title?

Oh right, that one.

Anyway, it'd always redirect to the first post but I'm not sure if it's possible to have it redirect to the last post, though you could just click the last number of the topic Wink

Thanks Rideem3 for your reply. I don't understand the image part as I don't see any image next to topic title. Can you please explain this part?

This is my forum: http://ilayaraja.forumms.net/
As you can see the "Last Posts" column (on the table) has link to the last topic which was posted. When I click the link, it gets me to the topic, but to the first post on the topic. Because of this, users again need to navigate to the last page/post.

I am just asking if the link on the "Last Posts" column can directly point to the last post of the last topic?

Thanks!

Thanks now I got it what you meant by the image. It was so tiny, I could not first see it. It takes me to the last page/post. Thanks. If that image can be translated to a link, that would be great. Still that works fine.

Thanks for your help! If my post is duplicate, I apologize for inconvenience. Can you please point out the link if my question was already posted and answered, I could not find it. Even here, I wanted the link (last posts column) to go to the last post, which I still would like to know the answer if that is possible.
