Latest Discussions Prime



  • Ah, ok. Maybe I'll add that in the next version.
  • Thank you, maybe you can whisper me some hack for now.
  • It depends on how you want to format it. If you know PHP, you can go to line 60 and change TimeDiff($Context, $Discussion->DateLastActive, mktime()) to anything using $Discussion->DateLastActive. That variable is just a Unix timestamp, so you can format it with any of the various PHP date functions.
  • Iam bad with PHP, I am trying to make dates look like this: November 4, 2006 . How hard would this be?
  • Ah. In that case, find: TimeDiff($Context, $Discussion->DateLastActive, mktime())
    And replace it with: date('F j, Y', $Discussion->DateLastActive)
    That should do the trick.
  • I've posted a minor update, version 1.1.2. Now, to an unauthenticated user, it will no longer try to show the number of new comments in a discussion. (Trying to fetch that when a user is not logged in just provides the total number of comments in the discussion, so it's not very useful to show that as the number of "new" comments.)

    Can this be turned into a Wordpress plugin? Pretty please?
  • I'm not too familiar with the WordPress API. What would it do, exactly? Show the blog posts with the latest comments?
  • Hi, Could you tell me please how to modify your plugin to show the time every post was wrote besides the title of the post ? Actually I get a list of 20 item: item1 time was wrote item1 item2 time was wrote item2 item3 time was wrote item3 and so on... And I like to get something like this: item1 (time was wrote item1) item3 (time was wrote item2) item2 (time was wrote item3) Thank you !
  • I found my own solution to my post before it: # $Panel->AddListItem($ListName, $Discussion->Name, $UnreadUrl, ''); $NewString = (($Discussion->NewComments > 0) && ($Context->Session->UserID > 0)) ? ' — <span class="LatestDiscussionsNew">' . $Discussion->NewComments . ' ' . $Context->GetDefinition('New') . '</span>' : ''; $Panel->AddListItem($ListName, $Discussion->Name, $UnreadUrl, '<span class="LatestDiscussionsTime">(' . TimeDiff($Context, $Discussion->DateLastActive, mktime()) . $NewString . ')</span>', $LastUrl, ''); It's working fine. Regards.

    Doesn't work for me, I got this message: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare latestdiscussions_addfilters() (previously declared in /home/.inkus/holidayp/ in /home/.inkus/holidayp/ on line 40 Can't see what the problem could be and now I can't access my forum at all! Not good!
  • It seems as you have a conflict between extensions LatestDiscusssionsPrime and DiscussionFilters. Both of them use the same function. So, you have to disabled one of them.
  • Disabled them, deleted them, and cleared my cache but still problem exists! Dammit!
  • B*ll*kcs! Looks like I'm going to have to reinstal unless the add-on author can shed some light on this for me?

    That's very odd. My forum uses Latest Discussions Prime alongside Discussion Filters with no problems, and I checked the Discussion Filters code, and it definitely does not declare a function of that name. The fact that they both say Line 40 suggests that your copy of Discussion Filters might have accidentally gotten replaced with a duplicate of Latest Discussions Prime. Have you checked on that?
  • Just for the record, to 'delete' the extensions you also need to remove their references from conf/settings.php which will stop vanilla using them. It's very rare to have to reinstall your whole forum.

    Pol's comment seems pretty realistic, though.

    Cheers mini, you'll be pleased to know I figured that out (about the reference in the conf, although it's the extensions.php file rather than settings) Anyway, now I know how to remedy the situation I'll have another bang at it ;-)
  • Hah, I always mix those 2 up. :)
  • Shame there isn't a simple version of this that just outputs the 5 last modified discussions :(

    Any idea on how to remove the stickies from the list? Thanks. :)
