How do you put the PHP Variables in the templates to make them show up?

How are they able to show your last visit on there? What codes in the templates do they use for that? It's says when you login, "Logged as Nick. Your last visit was on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:30 pm."

How's is able to do that in the templates if you can't use variables. I know the variable {LAST_VISIT_DATE} is the code for showing that, but I mean what's the whole code to be displayed for that or are there any others like that?

forumotion is not compatible with php.
But depending what it is your trying to do there are most likely other ways you can get the same thing.

what are you trying to incorporate?

The one to get the post count in templates is {NB_MESSAGES} (or at least that's the one I use in widgets) and Last Visit is {LAST_VISIT_DATE}

I don't know what the one for the joined date is though.

Hope it helps!

The templates do not accept any of the PHP variables by Forumotion. Neither can JS Management.

Of course you can just look at my forum Statistics. Very Happy

Nick, don't follow that tutorial, it's possibly the worst way of doing it. It uses Ajax just so, pointlessly.

The post I gave you works fine, would you like to tell me what about it wasn't working?

Just because something works doesn't mean it is good.
Because Ajax makes a request to another page... almost the same as loading another page (not quite as bad but almost) ... also look at the size of the script. INFACT right now... I will write something which will do this for anyone...


EDIT:
This post was originally a mini explanation of how easy it is to do this without that horrible unneccessary script. It contained some codes to show the author what to do and how to do it.

However I was so shocked that people were using that script just to move the information in a variable to templates that I had to write a tutorial/better explanation.

So here: http://www.avacweb.com/t125-17-variable-in-html-pages-and-templates

Thats because in the tutorial I spelt the Variable wrong. If you read the tutorial, you'll understand what you need to do to add your own variables to it to work. My tutorial will work for ALL the variables, all that is required is adding the Variable to the list within the DIV.

I did put the Javascript in there, just thought I had to add on to it.

I think LGForum's way was easier and better.

It worked. What I was doing wrong was adding the { and I didn't know I wasn't suppose to. Thanks!
