I want to make a block for everyone since I think that it will be very usefull, but I need a little help.
I dont know much about php (but I am learning) so I would like to try to maybe modify an existing block.
Here is what I want to do.
I want to make a block that I can enter the post ID # (from the forum) into and it will display it sorta like the news and any replies will be added to the original post.
So I need a block that draws info from the forums, can anyone help?
So you want to create a news item from a forum post and have the comments get posted as replies in the forum? Very interesting concept. I think I've heard that News Pro has a feature for comments going into the forum, but the other part you'd need to do yourself, but it's just a matter of querying the post database using the post ID.
Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
HI Mammlouk, it should be a simple thing to make, I dont need all the fancy bells and whistles that the news pro has. I would be happy just typing in the post ID and it just posts it into the news (uses the original title from the forum post as well) and if it used the persons avatar for the pic the would be the icing on the cake. Do you know of a simple block that I can look at modifying to accomplish this?
