[Block] Recent Topics/Posts with Post Preview!
« on: July 01, 2011, 05:56:15 PM »
Recent Topics/Posts with Post Preview
[Made by Blue][I hope you like it =D]

Description: A block that previews the recent topics or posts with or without scrolling.

Requirements:
- SMF 2.0 GOLD
- Simple Portal 2.3.5

SETUP INSIDE:
+ Latest Topics OR Latest Messages
+ Number of posts
+ Number of characters to output
+ Scrolling Enable/Disable
+ Set height of the block for Scrolling
+ Set speed for Scrolling
+ Vertical scrollbar visible if you want
+ You can translate it to your own language with $text inside
+ Exclude boards that you want
+ HTMLSPECIALCHARS for languages that use special characters

Author Notes:
I've made a block for an user in the Block Requests and here it is ;) Suggestions are welcome :D

NEW VERSION:
1.1 -> BBCode and Hidden Boards fix
1.2 -> "New" image in topics/posts not read
1.3 -> Exclude boards that you want to hide from guests
1.4 -> Internet Explorer 8 fix (disable vertical scrollbar)
1.5 -> Permissons fix! (User only see what he is allowed to); Exclude boards for everyone and HTMLSPECIALCHARS to languages like Greek and bugfix.
1.6 -> Added Scrollbar option
1.7 -> Tweaked to show display names instead of usernames within the block (thanks to Sayaka Maizono)
1.8 -> Tweaked by GeorG (1. Icon "NEW" disappears when the message has been read 2. Guests are shown author nick)
Code: [Select]

I have a theme which is adapted
many mods that you can not find 2.0
Here and there some custom scripts specifically for my forum that I can not miss
I have a test forum with 2.0 but can not get it the way I want
so upgrading will not be for immediate

Good work! ;) But it would be fine if you use a single table; you can only <tr> tag for rows.

I don't reply support PMs. Please use support forums.

Thank you grafitus,

I didn't use only <tr> because I could not output the same way that is now because I wanted the $post['body'] out of the table and not in  :-[

With scrolling off there isn't any XHTML errors but with scrolling ON there are because the <marquee> tag is not part of the XHTML specification, but most modern browsers support it.

To make it XHTML Valid the scrolling must be done with javascript but I don't know javascript. I might give it a try but no promises :(

Ok, manage to get it up and running amko_sa ;)

There is a folder attached that you need to upload to your SMF's main directory in order to work.

And here is the code:
Code: [Select]
<?php

/*

Arvo Blue,

This is off topic but thought I would see if you could take a look at an issue I am having.  You seem to be just a tad bit more knowledgable than myself. :applause:

The thread is http://simpleportal.net/index.php?topic=9176.msg48333#msg48333

One more thing.  How do you get the code in like a scrolling frame when you put it in a post ?

Thank You Sir.

Hi nob4uask,

Please don't create off-topics. If you need my help send me a PM and I will help you the best I can although, as you know, the best persons to help us all are Simple Portal team :D

There is a quick way to put things scrolling but it will cause an XHTML error since the <marquee> tag is not part of the XHTML specification, but most modern browsers support it. For the quick way you can use this tag:

Code: [Select]
<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left">Your scrolling text goes here</marquee>see more here: http://www.quackit.com/html/codes/html_marquee_code.cfm

Only admins can use it in a post since they are the only ones that are allowed to use [ HTML ] bbcode.
Code: [Select]
[html]<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left">Your scrolling text goes here</marquee>[/html]

Blue is there a way the avatars could be swapped for whatever the message icon is?

I don't want too many blocks showing a users avatar.

Looks very good though.
Daily backups mean less headaches

I may be no coding expert but I am willing to help where I can.

Block perfect, but .... Could you add the function that the image "new" appeared when we have not yet read that message? example:




(Sorry for my english)
