  7. Recent/Latest Posts Without A Plugin

    If you are anything like me you hate a long list of plugins in your ACP and you really hate uploading plugins because anything could go wrong (like accidentally placing files where they don't belong and finding them 3 weeks later thinking "how the ****?". So here is my replacement for this issue. There are two topics for this section. The first is the basic generic "pulling" and the second is a more advanced clean up for self hosted mybb forums (because unfortunately using the built in portals latest posts/threads function does not show thread prefixes (which a lot of people use for dictating whether or not a thread is Mature, Open, Private, etc.) and it also does not style a username with the color/styles attached to the usergroup) which we will fix in that section of this tutorial.

  8. Recent Posts w/o Plugin

    This guide offers two options to installing and running recent posts on your forum. It also uses the recent posts from the portal so portal settings will dictate how this will work but I have updated this to include thread prefixes and username/group display to properly show.

  15. Inline Moderation/Multi-Quote Issues (After 02/10/2017)

    After an update on Icyboards (I believe around 02/10/2017), it seems that a few of Icyboard hosted forums are having some issues with inline moderation (as well as a few other things such as multiquote).

     

    There is a possible quick fix/solution to this issue and I would like to address it here, have no fear this will almost certainly fix your issues, especially if they just started happening out of the blue and you haven't touched anything in the coding.

    Where are the options I'm looking for? What are all these other options? How do I make it do this? Can I make it do that? This handy guide to getting set up with SMF should help answer some of these burning questions. Even if you've been using SMF for a while, I'd peek at this guide anyway, as you may find something in it you didn't know SMF did! It aims to take you from installation to initial set ups, and also has a neat list of useful modifications, some pro and con things, and a bunch of "this person's spent too long working with this software" rambling.
