Recent Post on Topic Page
« on: May 02, 2012, 02:13:57 AM »
I have enabled recent post option for my SMF 2.0.2 which show 8 recent post at my forum index page.

I want to show the same on topic page as well, but could not find any mod for this. I've seen several forum where recent post are displayed at topic page as well.

I'm new to PHP, so help is requested.

You might want to check out Simple Portal. It has just that and a few other handy things.

http://www.simpleportal.net/

Scroll down on the home page, and you'll see the 'Recent topics' block. That can be added to take the place of the 'Recent posts' block (which you can see on the left of the page) and that block is visible everywhere.

Yes I've seen this in Simple Portal, but at this moment I dont to install the portal for sake of recent post only. There must be some other way like changing any source file

Oh you will need to manually edit your template files. I will make the edit for you when I have some free time tonight.

Sorry about that. Forgot to take a look a look at this for you. This might be best done by a customizer though.

Well, what I can tell you is that it would actually make your forum quite a bit slower to put that on every page since it's not possible to cleanly or easily cache it... still interested?

OK, I don't think I made myself clear.

Turning off the list of recent posts like that is already suggested for performance - and it's only on the board index. Turning it on for all the other places is a MAJOR PERFORMANCE PROBLEM. It will REALLY slow your forum down.

I understand... but I really wish to give it a try... I've seen atleast 12 SMF based forum with recent post on topic pages as well... and atleast  4 of them are on shared hosting...
