phpBB Recent Posts (38 posts)

    I found the "phpBB Recent Posts" plugin but I have some questions about it's use.

    I opened the php file. Inside I find this info ...

    function show_posts($limit = 10)
    {
    global $wpdb;
    //Put your phpBB and wordpress database info here:
    $WPDB = "wordpress"; //WP db name
    $PHPBBDB = "phpbb"; //phpBB db name
    $USERS_TABLE = "phpbb_users"; //phpbb user table
    $TOPICS_TABLE = "phpbb_topics"; //phpbb topics table
    $POSTS_TABLE = "phpbb_posts"; //phpbb posts table
    $SITEURL = "http://yoda.gatewayy.net/forum/"; //Forum URL with trailing /
    //Do not edit beyond this point

    I know the name of my WP database but I'm not sure about the name of my phpBB db name. I assume that's my db user name, is that correct? And as far as site url I guess that's my http://www.urlname.com/blog. Would I then save and upload this to the Plugins folder?

    If all of that is correct I have no idea how I activate it and place the posts where I want them in one of my side panels. Can someone help? And of course, if there is anything I've left out please let me know that as well. Thanks so much.

    Hmmm... I don't think this plugin is for WP, rather for phpBB (which is a wll known forum software >> http://www.phpbb.com/

    For WP customizable post listings see:

    moshu is incorrect - the plugin is here:

    http://yoda.gatewayy.net/index.php/wp-phpbb/wp-phpbb/

    And yes you need a seperate database name for the


    $PHPBBDB = "phpbb"; //phpBB db name

    After completing the neccerssary requirements upload, activate and post


    <? show_posts("Number of posts wanted here"); ?>

    Wherever you want the posts. (ie. in sidebar.php)

    I've not tried it yet but i will

    Well tbh i couldn't get it to work but really just check what databases you are using and you might be luckier!

    Sorry, I was wrong. However the OP did not have phpBB installed and what he wanted was the "recent posts" for WP :)

    Hi,
    I was wondering if anyone knew of a place to get the phpBB latest posts plug-in? The author's site is down.

    Many thanks,

    Neil

    The link for this plugin does not seem to be working anymore.

    http://yoda.gatewayy.net/index.php/wp-phpbb/wp-phpbb/

    Does anyone know of a mirror or another site where I can download this plugin? If not, can someone who is using this plugin, make it available for download or email it to me at twistshow[at]gmail[dot]com

    any help with this? I'd really like some kind of phpbb plugin that will display the most n number of recent posts to my phpbb forums.

    Does phpBB have an RSS feed for that like most major forum software does? If so just use one of the RSS plugins for WP and feed it the phpBB RSS feed.

    I've looked for a MOD for phpbb and found a "supposed" RSS 0.92 MOD but can't seem to get it to work. I don't really want an RSS 0.92, I would need an RSS 2.0 feed and can't seem to find anything like that.

    That link to the above-mentioned plugin is still down. In fact, it looks like that entire subdomain is down. I'm really interested in this plugin, though. I need it for a site I'm building as a Christmas gift.

    If anybody has it or knows where to get, please contact me. My email address at yahoo is alans17. Thanks in advance.

    I am currently using this on my site with WP 1.5.2

    You can grab the file [there is only the one as far as I am aware] at http://shadows.os42.com/wp-phpbb.phps

    Cool! Thank you so much shadow! Is it more in readme files if you have this file yet? I think to customize list a little bit.

    I modified this plugin so it shows the top 5 (or what ever) latest feeds that were posted too. it also shows the number of posts on each feed.

    too see an example go to. http://www.ourtake.net

    if anyone is interested I can spend a few minutes cleaning up the plugin code so it can be easily used by others.

    twasnow, I would love it if you could provide this plugin, cleaned up or not. It appears that it has disappeared from Shadows page now too.

    Thanks!

    I believe, that I have succeeded to get it from google cache.
    Get it from:

    wp-phpbb-files

    It holds a cashed copy of the related forum topic and the plugin corrected according to instructions.
    Please, check carefully, I hold no responsibility :)

    I install the wp-phpbb plugin, but i get the error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /www/htdocs/webdr/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-phpbb.php on line 56

    Is there someone who can help me with this?

    That may be a missing $ before post->post_time
    Check to line 52.

    The script is working! If somebody need the script let me know.

    I have only a question about the list of the topic's. On the moment you see a topic more than ones in the list, if people respons on the topic in the forum. Is it possible to show the topic one time in the list? Of does somebody know how you can make it, like the forumlist on http://www.ourtake.net.

    http://www.ourtake.net/2006/site/do-you-have-a-question-or-topic-for-discussion/ I have a link to the code I used here, with some instruction.

    sorry I don't have the original code anymore, but it wouldn't be hard to help some one write what they want.

    i have installed this, but when i put the code in my sidebar template to call for the list i get this error. might it be related to my mysql databases for phpbb and wp each being on different servers (powweb randomly assigns them to one of 12)?

    b

    Can’t select database

    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the http://mysql10.powweb.com/badscienceforum database.

    * Are you sure it exists?
    * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_wordpress. Could that be the problem?

    If you don't know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.
