  • [CMS] Recent Post Widget - Setting the title to Thread tile instead of Post tiltle

    I am looking for a solution so that my Recent Forum Post widget displays the original thread title rather than repeating the first few lines of the most recent post (see below)

    That is what the Recent Posts widget is supposed to show. If you want thread info, use the Recent Threads widget instead.

      Steve,

      I must be missing something, I can't find "Recent Threads" widget. It seems a little redundant to repeat content of the latest post in the title rather than use the original title of the thread to maintain continuity.

        You have to create one:

        Admin CP -<> vBulletin CMS -> Widgets -> Create New Widget -> Recent Treads

        Then you add that widget to your layouts here:

        Admin CP -> vBulletin CMS -> Layout Manager -> Edit

          I also have this problem.

          The Recent Posts widget used to work properly. Since my upgrade from 4.0.3 to 4.1.0pl2 it is doing something unpleasant.

          I tried the "Recent Thread" widget and that isn't what I want.

          To demonstrate I found a randon 4.0.3 site with widget working (attachment1) and compare it to mine (attachment 2)

          As you can see, in 4.0.3 if a 'post' has no title, no title is displayed in the widget.
          In 4.1.0pl2 if a post has no title, the first few line of the post is used as the title and it looks a mess.
