i figured out why this wasn't working quite right... it seems to be behaving properly now..

[www.neotribes.net]

i had to calculate the absolute position by taking into account all the nested cells like this:

var oObj = obj;
var iTotalTop = 0;
var iTotalLeft = 0;

while (oObj){
iTotalTop += oObj.offsetTop;
iTotalLeft += oObj.offsetLeft;
oObj = oObj.offsetParent;
}

here is my stylesheet entry for .popup

.popup {position: absolute; width: 400px; background-color:#C4DFFE; layer-background-color:#C4DFFE; visibility: hidden; left:30px; top: 50px;
font-size: 9pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; color:#000000; text-decoration:none;
padding: 5px 5px 5px 5px; border-width: 1; border-color: #3664BB; border-style: solid; margin: 0 0 0 0}


here's the javascript and template:

next enhancement.

how possible would it be to put a "mark all read" link on the newest from all forums page?


also, i don't seem to have any control over how long the rollover stays up.. any ideas how i can make it stay on the page longer before it disappears?

Well put a delay before the hide part. Was it so that it hides as soon as you mouseout from the link?

You can find couple of tips here:

not possible, it would need to do a lot of work, its not just a link as it would need to affect all forums.

could a function be crafted to quickly mark every post in every forum read for a user?

what needs to happen in the database?

see the phorum_db_newflag_allread to know what needs to be done for one forum.
that function is nicely documented.
no plans from our side to create a function for doing this for all forums as you could also call this function for each and every forum you want to.

Latest X Posts in a templated Phorum-Page
Version 1.1

UPDATE 1.0. --> 1.1

- Fixed and sorted out the different version-numbers to become one complete version.

- newest10.php becames newest11.php
- newest10.tpl becames newest11.tpl

- optimized the phpsource to the new filenames newest11.php and newest11.tpl

- Corrected/Renamed the subject in the download-area, so the user will detect at once the file before the user must read through the whole discussion-thread
