List active topics on index page

Postby mpg187 » Tue Dec 22, 2009 3:46 pm

Can you please make it so it lists the active topics on the index page?

You can see an example on my forum, operation420.net/forum

I have info on a mod there.

Sorry, but I try to run MOD free; the only changes I make are for branding. I don't want to have to worry about incompatibilities when a new release comes out.

Besides, displaying various items is one click away using the little bar on the Home page:

View unanswered posts • View unread posts • View new posts • View active topics


This board isn't active enough to have any "active" topics, but View new posts should work easily enough.

On a PocketPC one click away gets annoying after a while. Things like topics on the index page and quick reply should be built in...

Yeah view active topics doesn't work.

Ah, I suppose it would, especially if you don't have tabbed browsing so you can view multiple topics without needing the Back button.

Quick Reply is built in to phpBB 3.0.6 (although it seems pretty stupid -- you have to press a button to see the Quick Reply form, so all it saves is a page load).

For stuff on the Index page, you'll have to make that case with the phpBB developers. ;)

It's running 3.0.6 (the latest).

Anticipating your next question, I have Quick Reply turned off in all forums (except Testing) because it seems so useless. Check out the Testing forum to see how it works; if you like it, let me know and I'll turn it on in the other forums.

UPDATE: I just found out that for View active topics to work, it had to be enabled in each of the forums. I have enabled it in every forum but the Testing forum.

Since I was already updating all of the forums to turn that on, I also enabled Quick Reply for you.

Okay thanks.

Seems weird that there was never any, I could goto Active Topics right after I just made one and nothing. On my forum I have 85 pages on my index page list (at 10 per page)
