Sorting Threads by Most recent post
December 01, 2000 11:23PM
I've been trying to sort the top level threads, so that those with the most recent post appear on top. Our first few attempts have failed.

Am I missing something obvious here? In other words, is the code already able to do this sort? If not, has anyone done this?

Any advice/ideas are appreciated.

It would (in theory) be easy to do in collapsed view but not sure how the hell u would do it in expanded vew (@!#$ loads of nested queries!) -> I suppose u could not bother when expanded seeing as its only Phorum that does this type of thing.

I will have a go on my forums in collapsed view over the next few days

Any luck on this one yet? When I posted the request, I meant of course to have this in collapsed view only. It would be close to meaningless in uncollapsed view. Please, someone?

It is done. You have even three sorting options. See [budo.cz]

Good for you. It seems that you intend to keep it for yourself, so it won't do the world much good...

I think the following should be done:

1. add a field to each thread called 'lastpost'
2. update 'lastpost' each time post.php is called to post a new reply
3. list.php should have ORDER BY lastpost DESC

Seems that Kircirci's forum is broke!

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: myhtmlspecialchars() in /httpd/html/budo/forum/post.php on line 217

Has anyone sorted the float to top yet. I didn't bother as phorum 3.3 is gona have it .. but they seem to be taking an age to release it so i may well have to get cracking on hacking 3.2.11

p.s. vulpes... i take it this forum is 3.3-dev? do you have a working standard copy you can email me .. i tried out some of the cvs dumps on phorum but they always seem to be error prone

you need to add some stuff to the tables, also run update script. It should work after that. Mine runs on hacked 3.3-dev

where do you get 3.3-dev from. I need to update our phorum to get the threads sorted by posts and I don't like the new layout of phorum 4. You only seem to be able to get 3.2 or 4 Alpha

I've been trialling other boards with the users to fix the sorting - but they just love the phorum layout - which is good - cos so do I.

thanks
