PHPBB3 Recent Topics set to single Forum?

Post by Honor on October 28th 2010, 5:46 pm

We have different people that only look at one forum (not everyone plays every RPG we have to offer). I've had several requests for the recent topics to be split up between my categories - one for SGC, one for SGA, one for Omega Base, etc. I'd only have about five topics shown per world.

Is there a way to get the code for the Recent Topics so I can change what it searches, and then place it back in blank widgets? Not a coder, would need some pretty specific help.

The recent topics widget is generated by a server PHP script. Its code would be worthless to you.

You could accomplish what you want with a widget containing an RSS feed, along with a script that selects the proper feed to display.

Good luck!

Well I found all kinds of RSS feeders, and how to add the correct category to them to only get that one category, but it refuses to return any new posts.

Recap - need to know why categories visible to guests will plug into an RSS script but not render any new topics, even if you post after you drop the code into a widget.
