Solved Recent Topics Widget

Post by ashcarp988 on Tue Mar 26, 2013 2:26 pm

Hey I know this has probably been answered a million times but I searched for a while and could not find it. On my forum I want to add one of those scrolling "recent topic" widgets. But I do not use a portal and do not want to. I want the widget to be on the side of the forum on the forum's general homepage (not the portal). How do I do this? What the fuck ?!?

Hi,
To add a recent topic widget:
Admin panel > Modules > Forum Widgets >Addition of Existing Widgets > Recent topics

Then under forum widgets management at the top of the page you should be able to move it where you want it.

...I can't seem to find anything that says "Addition of Existing Widgets" on that page. I can get the recent topics scrolling widget on the portal but that isn't what I want. How do I get it on the actual forum homepage?

Hello,

What widget do you want to add? That's the only 'recent topics' widget Wink
And for homepages, you can read this tutorial on how to set it up:

Is your portal installed? You might need to make sure it's turned off.
Admin panel > modules > portal
check if it's disabled if you don't want a portal.

hmm...
So there might have been a flaw in my directions before, so I'll give them again.
If these don't help your problem, perhaps someone else has a better answer.
Admin panel > Modules > then click on forum widgets in the box (it's under portal) > scroll down until you see addition of existing widgets > add a recent topics widget

Then in the box above the Forum Widgets management can let you move your widgets around
hope this helps.
