Solved Check only last page

Post by Guest August 7th 2023, 4:57 pm

Is there a way to look for last post in the thread with jQuery even I am on the first page? In my case, Let's assume I am on any page but last, could I gather info from truly last post in that thread which can be 10 pages ahead? And if it is possible, how can I get access to the info of last post?

Good evening!

Exactly what information about the last post should be retrieved?
After receiving this information, what should be done with it next?
As I understand, the uploading of information should start after going to the topic. Is it correct?

So, I made a script (almost done) to show user a message if the difference between today's date and last post date are more than 180 days.

But, I realized this won't work if I gather info of last post date on the first page because actual last post in that topic is what matters, no matter where I am.

Send the code you already have.
I'll try to look at this issue tomorrow, but I think the problem might be the date.
I need to see what format your code uses for the date.

The date is not an issue. I am reffering to locating last post in the thread itself. Let's say thread has 10 pages, but i visited page 3. I want the date of the last post. How to obtain it?

I think there will be a problem with the date format - either it's a regular string, a "new Date" constructor object, or whatever.
There are a number of other issues related to writing the code. I don't want to rewrite the code several times just because you didn't want to send your code.
I'm not asking you to submit code just for curiosity's sake.

I think the only way to do this is match the title from the list of threads in that specific category and get the link from the last post column there. That would consider a lot of work though especially if there are a lot of categories and posts.

Code:

let page2 = 5;
let lastPage = false;
let address = location.pathname;
let lastPost;
let indexOfPage = address.indexOf('-');
let isLoad = true;

function fetchPageData(currentPage) {
  if (isLoad) {

    } else {
      let pageIndex = address.substring(0, indexOfPage).indexOf('p');
      modifiedAddress = address.slice(0, pageIndex) + 'p' + currentPage + address.slice(indexOfPage);
    }

      $.ajax({
        url: modifiedAddress,
        method: "GET",
        data: 'topiclist',
        dataType: "html",
        success: function(data) {

        },
        error: function(xhr, status, error) {
          console.log("AJAX request error: " + error);
        }
      });
  }
}

function handleData(data, currentPage) {
  let tempDiv = document.createElement('div');
  tempDiv.innerHTML = data;

  let mainContentElement = tempDiv.querySelector('#main-content');
  let find_elements = Array.from(mainContentElement.querySelectorAll('.author'));

  if (find_elements.length === 0) {
    lastPage = true;
    let difference = new Date(result) - new Date();
    console.log(Math.floor(difference / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)));
  } else {
    lastPost = find_elements.at(-1);
    let text = getTextFromAuthorElement(lastPost);
    result = formatText(text);
    isLoad = true;
  }
 
  if (!lastPage) {

    fetchPageData(page);
  }
}

function getTextFromAuthorElement(element) {
  let text = '';
  let childNodes = element.childNodes;

  for (let i = 0; i < childNodes.length; i++) {
    let node = childNodes[i];
    if (node.nodeType === Node.TEXT_NODE) {
      text += node.nodeValue.trim();
    }
  }

  return text;
}

function formatText(text) {
  let timeIndex = text.lastIndexOf('-');
  let time = text.length - timeIndex;
  let strippedText = text.substring(2).slice(0, -time).trim();
  return strippedText;
}
 
});

Code:
let page2 = 5;
- Here specify the value that corresponds to the field in the AP - General - Messages and emails - Configuration - Posts per page. I have indicated 5 for clarity of the result.

Find this code:

Code:
  if (find_elements.length === 0) {
    lastPage = true;
    let difference = new Date() - new Date(result);
    console.log(Math.floor(difference / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)));

Code:
Math.floor(difference / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24))
- the difference between today's date and the date of the most recent post in the topic. Calculated in days.

This is where you remove console.log and add your own logic for displaying the warning. For example:

Code:
if (Math.floor(difference / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)) < 180) {
...
} else {
...
}

Result: (on screenshot last post in topic)

I fix the code.
I did not take into that the words "Today" and "Yesterday" can be used instead of date.
I've added an additional check at this point.

Code:
function formatText(text) {
  let timeIndex = text.lastIndexOf('at');
  let time = text.length - timeIndex;
  let strippedText = text.substring(2).slice(0, -time).trim();
  if (strippedText === 'Yesterday') {
    let yesterday = new Date();
    let today = new Date();
    return yesterday.setDate(today.getDate() - 1);
  } else if (strippedText === 'Today') {
    return new Date();
  } else {
    return strippedText;
  }
}

Changed the date check to this one:

  let timeIndex = text.lastIndexOf('at');
  let strippedText;
  let time;
 
  if (timeIndex < 0) {
    timeIndex = text.lastIndexOf('-');

    strippedText = text.substring(2).slice(0, -time).trim();
    return strippedText;
  } else {
    time = text.length - timeIndex;
    strippedText = text.substring(2).slice(0, -time).trim();
    if (strippedText === 'Yesterday') {
    let yesterday = new Date();
    let today = new Date();
    return yesterday.setDate(today.getDate() - 1);
  } else {
    return new Date();
  }
  }
}

I've looked at classes - the code is identical for Invision.

On the Invision forum, I have swapped the parameters in this line:

Code:
let difference = new Date() - new Date(result);

You can check result.

The console shows the difference between today and the day of the last post in the thread.
Since the last post was written today, the difference is 0.

Ye, all good now. Just one more question. When page loads, the box appears and it takes a bit less than a second to vanish which is bad. Text should only appear once the script realize topic is that old.

I tried to put div display to none and then in script to revert it to display but all of the css applied in css file is gone. as if there was never any css applied.

It's better not to use inline styles - especially with the !important rule.
Set a class for the block. Write
Code:
display:none
to this class in CSS.
Then, when the script works, write the style through JS -
Code:
someBlock.style.disply = 'block';
