Solved How To Display Last Post?

Post by LadySibella on January 29th 2016, 5:14 pm

Hello Smile

I've seen on other forums that the last post of a page, will be displayed on top of the next page which allows members to know what the last poster was saying and reply to it.

For example:

You want to post on a topic and you end up with a brand new page, for example page 5; the first post displayed would be the last post of the previous page, in this case the last post of page 4 and then you'll have your post.

How could I set that up on my forum? (I run a PHPBB2)
My forum url: http://friends.forum-nation.com/

Thanks for your help Mr. Green

Thank you for your answer, i checked what you said but it's not what I'm trying to do. I went to the forum where I saw what I'd like to do and took 2 screen prints.

Here is what I'd like to set up on my forum:

The following pic shows that this member's post is the last one on page 4.



A reminder of this last post reappears on the top of page 5, so that the next member who comes to the topic will see the last post of page 4 without having to go back to that page. It also avoids for the last post of a page to be missed, and that reminder helps to keep the thread of the conversation.



How can I do that on my forum? Thanks Mr. Green

I am still not understanding exactly what you are wanting.

Sorry for the confusing explanations, let me try again:

I have many members who do not wish to have email notifications on the topics they are posting. Thus, they just go to the forum and click on the last page of a topic.
By doing that, they often times miss what was said on the previous page, and therefore miss to answer what the last poster wrote.
This is where the example I had given comes in. They go to the last page of a topic like I demonstrated with the screen prints I gave, "page 5". And with the setting I have they won't see what the last poster had written at the bottom of "page 4".

If you look at the screen prints I've given the first one shows the poster named Moony wrote the last post of page 4.
On page 5, you see a "reminder" or a "shadow" aka "duplicate" of her post on top of page 5 and then a post from someone named Carlo (who technically, is the first poster of "page 5")

This is exactly what I'm trying to set up on my forum. I would like that the last post of a page, be shown on the top of the next page all the time and thus automatically. Very Happy
