Tab 'Recent posts/comments'

edited July 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help


Can anyone enlighten me? I am pretty sure it's pretty easy to create a tab which shows a list of the most recent comments?



  • Out of curiosity, what is the benefit of a list of the most recent comments rather than the most recently updated discussions? Surely having it all out of context would just be a bit wacky?
  • @dom: I have one board here where people come to hang out and use it almost as a chat room. So it's nice to have a way to see what's currently going on in different threads.

  • Very easy, just find the tutorial for adding a new tab and add in the following as the link

    http://[insert vanilla path here]/search.php?PostBackAction=Search&Keywords=&btnSubmit=Search&Type=Comments
  • though, that spews out all comments, but you get the idea

    on top of FLC's suggestion, in order to pull this off via search (if that's the way you're going) you would need to include some kind of format to piece together the comments format type back together, as the search displays via plain text regardless if it's markdown or html
