Here it is, code and hack instructions inside.

As always please post with what phorum/php version/database you got it working and with what you didn't.

This hack is pretty easy to install, but it took me 2 days to make the script for it and make it "perfect", so
if you got any good addons to that hack or you changed something to make it look/work Better/faster i'd be glad to see what you did and how you did it.

enjoy :) and please post your comments, addons, or queston below.

Just a little addon:

right before (top.php)
echo "</center>\n";
add:
echo "<a href=\"list.php?f=$f\">Back</a>\n";

This will add "Back" link

might be, open your top.php and search for "top" and then add font color="whatever" before "top"
It works great Vulpes...

For non-English-native users, it will be more perfect if U can include $lAuthor variable.

Of course, synchorize the colour setting of the title bar in top.php with setting of this forum will be ABSOLUTELY PERFECT !!

However, appreciated Ur hare working.

Thank you Vulpes!

This was truly a great feature/hack to the Phorum! I've used your Views hack earlier with great success and this adds even more to the great Phorum.

I'm running a PHP-Nuke based site myself, but wanted to use Phorum as a forum and not the one that was included in the "package", so I (with some help of others) have integrated Phorum into PHP-Nuke and I also did an integration (which is nothing more than including the themes header/footer really) of your top X authors hack.

Thanks again!

My url to see it in action is [www.conan.no].

Hi Vulpes

I tryed out your hack but it needed a few adjustments for the 3.3 dev

the code is as follows:

List.php:
// Mark all read
addnav($menu, $lMarkRead, "$list_page.$ext?f=$num$GetVars&r=1");
<b>// Top 10
addnav($menu, $ltop10, "top.$ext?f=$num$GetVars&top=10");</b>
$nav=getnav($menu);
$TopLeftNav=$nav;
$LowLeftNav=$nav;

Also in english.php I added:
$ltop10 = "Top10";

Be sure to remove the <b>BOLD</b> tags - I just put them in so you could see where the code is to be inserted.
yea, i should add it to the code sometime.

Top 10 authors of all forums...
May 03, 2001 06:40AM
Was wondering, how do i go about doing this? showing the top 10 authors of all the forums joined together.
as far as i know, it's impossible.

To the end of each $nav variable right after last </a>, add:

&nbsp;&nbsp;|&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href=\"top.$ext?f=$num$GetVars&top=10\"><FONT color='$ForumNavFontColor'>Top 10</font></a>


OK,
Here I am again with a silly question. When I add the above code directly after the last </a> I get a parse error from phorum when trying to display a forum. Does the code go directly after the </a> or after the close quotes that define the $nav variable ?

Thanks for any assistance!
Name versus username
February 13, 2002 12:27AM
I noticed that this (very nice) code counts the number of posts made by a certain NAME....is it possible to have it bu username instead? a matter of a little tweaking or a whole rewrite?...

on my phorum i have had complaints about people not being on the list anymore because they changed their names! I told them Vulpes had an answere...

Just another small correction :

bottom of the script
i replaced
echo "<a href=\"list.php?f=$f\">Back</a>\n";
by
echo "<a href=\"$list_page.$ext?f=$f\">Back</a>\n";

to enble your script functioning when pages have been renamed or extensions changed ;-)

It works fine here:

Linux 2.4.18, apache 1.3.26, php 4.2.2, mysql 3.23.48, phorum 3.3.2c
Re: Top X Authors Hack
November 04, 2002 08:09PM
I'm running 3.3.2c and I cant find the code in list.php to modify. Instructions say to open list.php and find these lines and modify code after </a>

Well I can't find </a> or these lines

f($ActiveForums>1){
$nav = "<div class=nav><FONT color='$ForumNavFontColor'>&nbsp;[it keep on going]
}
else{
$nav = "<div class=nav><FONT color='$ForumNavFontColor'>&nbsp;[it keep on going]

help?
