Is this based on .27c or the beta?  If it's based on the beta, you might want to edit your first post and include that somewhere.

It looks a lot like a customization; something we should move to the Customizations forum.  Is that OK with you?

Bottom line...it looks great!

Maybe the most interesting thing about this could be if we could make a block for each forum, which displays threads randomly instead of the most recent, which would be senseless on this case (because you got to look only from up to down :D). I mean, if we are browsing forum 1, the block will show randomly X threads from that forum (if we do the same with forum 2, so threads from it), or maybe X posts among the best rated ones.

Sarakin, it is just a php code that looks for threads on the forum

Code: [Download] [Hide]
  1. $id_query = sql_query( 'USE [yourIPDB]\;  
  2. SELECT \'id\', \'thread_name\' FROM \'ip_posts\' WHERE \'forum_id\'=' . $_GET['f']);  
  3.  
  4. $id_container= array($id_query);  
  5.  
  6. //Now we have the ids at a array,as all of them are decimal, just use rnd()  
  7.  
  8. rnd($id_container);  
  9.  
  10. //Then code for looking for the thread title and print it to screen. 


Just a little bit similar. (PS: IDK if rnd() was the correct syntax for picking a random number from a array)

I leave the last part right now uncompleted, I have to go to bed and sleep....

I don't understand 100%, but it seems your code would show random threads from a different forum (random) each time the block is loaded. What I meant is about a block which, depending on the foum you're browsing (the block should be added on the viewforum page), would show random threads from that forum (so what we need is a code which could be able to identify what forum we're in), or maybe the best rated from it, for instance.

And thanks for your interest anyway...

Sounds like it might be something some members will use...

I sadly have no more free time to do any side projects

$_GET array var get the vars given on the url, after the ?

for this url: ...viewtopic.php?f=21&t=5581&highlight=

we have $_GET['f'] = 2;
$_GET['t'] = 5581;
$_GET['highlight'] = ;

And when you write a something, a form, makes vars on the $_POST array.

So forum id is not ramdom, it is given by the f=[FORUM_ID] var at the URL/URI

What is ramdom is the post shown, but I do not know if the code is ok, I made it on a hurry, and perhaps it has to be fixed

Ok, I will try to explain myself.

Perhaps php.net documentation will help you understanding me.

PHP reserved variables
$_GET documentation
$_POST documentation

About HTTP GET and POST....
