  • {OCS}MasterSeal: I know this SB isnt' for support, but I just have a general question. Who would I contact to find out where SP stores its block info? Is it DB driven or files? I searched the site but came up with nothing. probably my fault any insight is appreciated.

  • emanuele: That's indeed funny, the limit is present only in the patch and not the full install.

  • phantomm: and from what I see only patch is broken, full install package is fine

Portal Per Forum / Multiple Portals
« on: December 26, 2015, 02:53:46 AM »
I have a variation of multiple portals / portal per forum that I would like to employ on my ElkArte forum, to match a custom coded portal setup I have on an aging Invision Power Board 2.3.x forum. I need a portal on the default index, containing various views of most of the subforums on the site. Then I need one of the excluded subforums to have its own mini-portal, which I really only need to contain a recent topics block above the nested subforums list.

What do you mean by various views? What particular views?
Ms. Eliana Tamerin

It should be painfully obvious by now that I don't respond to support PMs. Don't send me PMs for support. They will be ignored and deleted, post on the Support Boards to get support.

Sorry. I have a portal with mostly default blocks on the main forum index. The posts view on the side is hidden, and the center top is set to display a recent topics view for most of the subforums on the site, followed by forum news, then a news/topics view displaying the recent posts from the Validated News (reply only) subforum.

What I actually need that's different is the ability to insert maybe one block into a particular subforum, displaying topics, configured to display the recent topics from that subforum and its children.

EDIT: Another feature request I'd like. The ability to add a Show More or Go button on the Recent Topics / Posts block, that can display a search query containing a reasonable (or configurable?) range of recent posts from the subforums that are enabled for that particular block.

You should already be able to accomplish this with the block display settings. You can select specific actions, boards or pages for the block to appear on, or you can set up a custom solution. Check the Advanced Options to activate these settings.
