Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Below are some preview images of what the mod looks like when being used


This mod basically provides the following:

1. list recent topics in default SMF layout (a la vBulletin) with flexible filtering and sorting (action=recenttopics)
2. give users the possibility to select which boards they wish to monitor
3. replaces the recent posts block on the board index with one that applies the user preferences.
4. put a block with a (user) customizable recent posts/topics list anywhere in your theme templates.

-3.06 is a minor update to support SMF 1.1.* and 2 rc1*.
-3.02 contains a fix for a bug found by LHVWB, which caused a query to fail. 
-3.01 fixes a major bug when using a recent posts list on the board index. It also fixes the admin settings not displaying.
-3.00 adds support for 2.0 beta 3.*, admin settings are moved to configuration->modifications.
-2.52 adds support for 1.1.5 and hopefully fixes the remaining undefined indexes.

version 2.5
-more admin definable settings can be found at "features & options -> Recent posts/topics".
-it will now search for posts untill the (user) defined number of posts are found, but ONLY if you setup a timeframe to search in.
-some minor fixes and cleanups.

count is not supported anymore for the recent topics page. For pagination, it will now use the value from "Posts and Topics ->Topic Settings => Number of topics per page in the message index:"


-recent topics page for the last 3 days;limit=3;

-display a block with recent posts/topics anywhere you like

Code: [Select]
if (function_exists('ssi_recentPostsPref')) ssi_recentPostsPref();

The user preferences are available at the profile section. Beneath the "look and layout preferences" users will find a new item called "Recent posts preferences".
