Description of problem

Hey guys!

I was looking into making a proper news widget to feature the news topic. So it should show the latest message in the topic.

The already suggested by Forumotions widget "NEWS" unfortunately only shows the first message of the topic. (even if the topic has Sort the posts of a topic by : by post date most recent first enabled) any idea if this can be changed?

Also, NEWS widget specifies only selected forum, you cannot choose to always show one selected topic.

Is it possible to show the last message of the selected topic using a script then? Would this work with NEWS widget or a separate widget will have to be created?

Hi,

So you have a topic and you want to show to last post in it in a widget, right? If so, then it's possible and actually pretty easy to do. Let me know if that's what you want.

Add this script with placement on all pages:
Code:
$(function(){
var forum=3587;
var elem=$(".news_forum");
if(!elem.length) return;
$.get("/t"+forum+"-?view=newest", function(data){
data=$(".postbodyinside", data).last().html();
elem.html(data);
})
})
You have to edit this:
Code:
var forum=3587;
3587 is the topic id.
Place this HTML code where you want the post to load:
Code:
<div class="news_forum">Loading...</div>
You can modify it how you want as long as it has the class news_forum.

The topic ID would be for example: 153567? (this topic)

this should do it but not sure what elements are for phpBB2
Code:

$(function(){
var forum=3587;
var elem=$(".news_forum");
var elem2=$(".news_user");
if(!elem.length) return;
$.get("/t"+forum+"-?view=newest", function(data){
var data2;
data=$(".postbodyinside", data).last().html();
data2=$(".postprofile > dl > dt > strong", data).last().html();
elem.html(data);
elem2.html(data2);
})
})
