  • Putting "Latest Threads" on Main Page?

    How can we put a "Latest Threads" listing on a non VB page of our site? Like the main page for example. Here is a website doing that:

    www.bodybuildingpro.com

    They are using a hack for the 2.X series. With vBulletin 3.0, you can use the "Syndication System" which is located in external.php. You will have to parse the results which can be given in XML, RSS or Javascript.

                You would need to hack the query in external.php

                      PHP Code:
                      // Set this to your [url="http://www.yoursite.com/external.php"]http://www.yoursite.com/external.php[/url] 
                       
                      $feed 'http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/external.php'

                      So I made it then..


                      PHP Code:
                      // Set this to your [url="http://www.yoursite.com/external.php"]http://www.yoursite.com/external.php[/url] 
                       
                      $feed 'http://www.exasko.info/teen-chat/external.php'

                          // Set this to your http://www.yoursite.com/external.php$feed = 'http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/external.php';



                          That worked for me.. but when I changed the feed to
                          $feed = 'http://www.exasko.info/teen-chat/external.php';

                          It stopped working

                              Can't really post hacks here, but you can check out vbulletin.nl (not affiliated with vbulletin) and read up on vbadvanced or something like that.
