Mybb Forum

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have recently starting using Wordpress. This time I also have a forum built with MYBB. There are a couple of widgets for use called MYBB latest posts and also MYBB latest Topics. The widgets allows the posts to go in the sidebar of the Wordpress much like the regular wordpress "latest posts" widget I suppose but I can't get either of them to work. I wonder if anyone else has used or tried this.

Check the documentation there should be a link to their site. Also it could be that the widget is not playing nice with another one. Disable one at a time to see if this fixes it. This is all about all that I can say without looking at the site. With wordpress it could be a number of things.

Thankyou, I appreciate your reply. I will try to deactivate some of the other plugins and see what happens.

Thankyou, I appreciate your reply. I will try to deactivate some of the other plugins and see what happens.

So, I deactivated a few of the other plugins to see if they were messing things up and that didn't work. The link for the MYBB Last Topics had some very very brief instructions. It said "Place <?php lasttopics(); ?> in your templates and [lasttopics] in page or post." I didn't know where in the template to put the php line so I placed it at the very end of the function.php file and it gave me an error. So I added it to a text widget in my wordpress sidebar and then I added [lasttopics]to one of my pages and it actually worked but it's not what I wanted. So, where abouts would I place that php line without messing things up. Here is my functions.php code

<?php
/** Start the engine */
require_once( get_template_directory() . '/lib/init.php' );

/** Child theme (do not remove) */
define( 'CHILD_THEME_NAME', 'Education Theme' );
define( 'CHILD_THEME_URL', 'http://www.studiopress.com/themes/education' );

/** Create additional color style options */
add_theme_support( 'genesis-style-selector', array( 
'education-black'	=> __( 'Black' , 'education' ), 
'education-green'	=> __( 'Green' , 'education' ), 
'education-purple'	=> __( 'Purple' , 'education' ), 
'education-red'		=> __( 'Red' , 'education' ), 
'education-teal'		=> __( 'Teal' , 'education' ) 
) );

add_action( 'genesis_meta', 'education_add_viewport_meta_tag' );
/** Add Viewport meta tag for mobile browsers */
function education_add_viewport_meta_tag() {

   echo '<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"/>';

}

/** Add new image sizes */
add_image_size( 'featured-image', 466, 130, TRUE );

/** Add structural wraps */
add_theme_support( 'genesis-structural-wraps', array(
'header', 
'nav', 
'subnav', 
'inner', 
'footer-widgets', 
'footer' 
) );

/** Add support for custom background */
add_theme_support( 'custom-background' );

/** Add support for custom header */
add_theme_support( 'genesis-custom-header', array( 
'width' => 1140, 
'height' => 120 
) );

/** Add support for 3-column footer widgets */
add_theme_support( 'genesis-footer-widgets', 3 );

/** Reposition Primary Navigation */
remove_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'genesis_do_nav' );
add_action( 'genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap', 'genesis_do_nav' );

/** Reposition Secondary Navigation */
remove_action( 'genesis_after_header', 'genesis_do_subnav' );
add_action( 'genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap', 'genesis_do_subnav' );

/** Reposition Breadcrumbs */
remove_action( 'genesis_before_loop', 'genesis_do_breadcrumbs' );
add_action( 'genesis_before_content', 'genesis_do_breadcrumbs' );

add_filter( 'genesis_comment_list_args', 'child_comment_list_args' );
/** Change avatar size */
function child_comment_list_args( $args ) {

   $args = array(
		'type' => 'comment',
		'avatar_size' => 33,
		'callback' => 'genesis_comment_callback'
	);

	return $args;

}

/** Register widget areas */
genesis_register_sidebar( array(
'id'			=>	'slider',
'name'			=>	__( 'Slider', 'education' ),
'description'	=>	__( 'This is the slider section.', 'education' ),
) );
genesis_register_sidebar( array(
'id'			=> 	'intro',
'name'			=>	__( 'Intro', 'education' ),
'description'	=>	__( 'This is the intro section displayed below the slider.', 'education' ),
) );
genesis_register_sidebar( array(
'id'			=>	'featured',
'name'			=>	__( 'Featured', 'education' ),
'description'	=>	__( 'This is the featured section displayed below the intro.', 'education' ),
) );
genesis_register_sidebar( array(
'id'			=>	'call-to-action',
'name'			=>	__( 'Call To Action', 'education' ),
'description'	=>	__( 'This is the call to action banner.', 'education' ),
) );
/** Customize the credits */
add_filter( 'genesis_footer_creds_text', 'custom_footer_creds_text' );
function custom_footer_creds_text() {
   echo '<div class="creds"><p>';
   echo 'Copyright © ';
   echo date('Y');
   echo ' · <a href="http://wiga.ca/">WIGA</a> · Built on the <a href="http://www.studiopress.com/themes/genesis" title="Genesis Framework">Genesis Framework</a>';
   echo '</p></div>';
}

Thanks. I have a splash page up at the moment while working on the site but would remove it for now if someone could help me and needs to see it.

I just went and checked out the plugin. There is little to no documentation on it. Give this one a try I have used it and they have great support. http://simple-press.com/ They have a forum where you can go and ask the developer a question if something does not work. And he gets back to you quickly with an answer.

Thankyou so much, I just had a quick look at it but will spend more time. I sent a question to their contact and got a brief response but it was indeed very quick.

They said they have a template tag plugin. Have you yourself used it in a wordpress sidebar?

Also, I guess it can be installed in a sub folder?
