Ipb Latest Activity Mod where can i download this from?


bthaxor

hey trapsters,on my website, i have set up my own (legal) ipb forum. it is currently version 2.3.4.i would like to have, as in Xisto, a mod which shows 'latest activity' at the bottom of each page.could someone please tell me where i can download this mod from?thanks.*by the way, this is the 57,000th topic


jlhaslip

have you checked at http://mods.invisionize.com/ for anything? They are a common source of Mods for IPB.
Might cost you some money, though...


bthaxor

yes, i have checked invisionize and all the other usual mod sites, and have come up with nothing. i have, unlike many other trapn00bs, actually googled the subject before posting, and nothing has been found.i believe this is a mod found only on Xisto/Xisto, and i would be perfectly happy to leave copyright Xisto etc. in my code... i just really need this mod...thanks


EngrJayze

you should search for the mods on invisionize itself because the offer it for free for licensed users

Check this one out: http://mods.invisionize.com/db/index.php/f/916

 

It is an older mod, so you might need to check some stuff to see if it works on your version...

1. that mod is for a VERY much older version of ipb, i have checked the code and it is destined to not work.2. that mod only shows the very last topic posted, i'd like it to show the last 20.thanks for the help, anyway. i have pm'ed opaque and buff, hope one of them will help.

Well if you look at this mod here http://mods.invisionize.com/db/index.php/f/7285, you could with a testing could make this mod display on your forums, I have a feeling that is how it is done with the forum, but I think OpaQue designed his own mod for that. Maybe he can tell you what he did to set it up.


bthaxor

well sm, i have previously examined that mod, however it seems to show only latest posts, shows them in a list not a tabular format and i do not know how to customise it to my needs due to my lack of php knowledge. i hope opaque or buff will be able to help.

I presume the mod is custom to Xisto/Xisto, seeing as it appears to be called the "Lastest Activity" mod rather than "Latest Activity" I haven't coded with the latest versions of IPB, but there should be some way to run SQL queries for modifications fairly easily. You should be able to write an SQL query to order the topics by last activity, and pull out 10 rows to get the last 10 topics.

I have also seen a few forums that have a box labelled "Top 5 Statistics" which has a section listing the 5 latest topics. Adjusting that to the latest 10 would be a trivial change. However, there are a few mods with the same, or very similar, names, and I don't know which one it is

i would like to reinforce the fact that i have no php/mysql experience whatsoever. the only thing i actually would like this mod to have is what Xisto has at the bottom of the page, except last 20 posts and topics, not 30 as Xisto has.thanks for all your help.

After trying to navigate a forum in French (with surprising success ), I found this topic: http://www.invisionpower.fr/?cityid=0〈=fr&search=Ipb+21x+hacl&hl=latest&catid=0&view=ads
It says it is for v2.1 but you can always give it a go and see what happens. I am not sure what differences there are between 2.1 and 2.3.

I have also found a newer version of this mod at D-Scripting for IPB 2.3. You can find it here: http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ (login required)


bthaxor

sorry,once again this is not what i was looking for. thanks for the efforts, anyway :lol:i think only buff or opaque can help me on this one, it seems as if this mod is custom for Xisto.


OpaQue

The Mod I have on Xisto was taken from invisionize. But then I had some compatibility problems. The box in which the activity is shown was not rendering properly.So, I had to go through the codes. Not only I fixed the design but I also added another Query to fetch latest TOPICS as well. My code is horrible so I will not go back into it. But you can always offer some free credits on Xisto to get a PHP person to work on it. It should not take more than 20-25 min. I would had done this for you But I got a list of support tickets begging for my attention. I hope you understand. Take care.-Shree


bthaxor

opaque, i definitely understand that you are a busy person. i hope that maybe some day you will have the time to help me on this issue.for now, i will do as opaque said:I AM OFFERING 30 CREDITS TO THE PERSON WHO CAN BEST MAKE A LATEST ACTIVITY MOD LIKE THE ONE ON Xisto, FOR IPB 2.3.X. I WOULD LIKE IT TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME, HOWEVER TO DISPLAY THE LATEST 20 POSTS/TOPICS INSTEAD OF 30. I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF THIS PERSON COULD PROVIDE ME WITH ACCURATE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. AFTER THE MOD IS SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED ON MY FORUMS AND IT HAS BEEN TESTED, THE PERSON WILL RECEIVE THEIR 30 CREDITS, AND IF I BELIEVE THEY HAVE DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB, THEY WILL RECEIVE 50 CREDITS.thanks to anyone willing to give this a go


Saint_Michael

Heck you be better off posting that in invisionize as well, as you oculd get a bigger response that way. Although it does give alex something to do, but there is a slight catch you need to give that person complete access to your site, including cpanel, DB's and the forum. Unless of course they have their own forum, and that is why I mention that you post that request at invisionize or contact the original creator the script to do an update for it.
