Description of problem

Hello

As the title says i would like to create an Advanced news widget.
The widget will work like this:
One of the members of my forum shall have a special rank (news reporter) on the forum
This member will have the special privilege to choose the topic that will stick on the news widget himself

is a widget like this possible?

A way to do this is use the default news widget and set it for a certain forum on your forum.  Then set the member to be the only one who can post in that forum.

Well i thought so, but this person (the guy who i will make news reporter) wants to insert to the news widget other people's topics from various forums too, so a new news widget has to be made in the process blackeye

The news widget will only display the content from the forum it is assigned . Content can be added to it through the assigned forum

I believe there is a code that allows you to have more than one news widget.

I will look around to see if I can found it.

Edit:  Found one - http://fmdesign.forumotion.com/t229-add-news-topics-from-multiple-forums#1207 .

Didn't know that . Very cool .

I suppose I have to change this stuff below to use it ?

To add new News widgets write : newsWidget(column, forum, topics, special_id)

Explained :

column : The column you want them to appear in ( left or right ) LOWERCASE ONLY

forum : The ID of the forum you want to load e.g. https://help.forumotion.com/f1-updates-and-new-features = f1 - f = 1

topics : The amount of topics you want to load (1, 2, 3, 4..)

special_id : It is important you use a UNIQUE ID for each news you add. It can be random numbers or letters, but make sure they are not identical.

You can modify the two I have in the script above already. To add more simply copy and paste them after. Example :
CODE:SELECT CONTENT
newsWidget('left', 1, 3, 12);
newsWidget('left', 2, 3, '41h3');
newsWidget('left', 4, 3, 4123);
newsWidget('left', 7, 3, 4113);

Note : The topics loaded are cached for 5 minutes to prevent multiple requests.
