Brings back the "Latest News" block onto the board index from IPB 3.1 and older.
Hook must be configured from settings before anything will appear on the index.

Have still same problem with language string - just upgraded hook! (board 3.2)
Definitely worked on my test board.
I'll take a look later. :)
No problem...take your time .. i can send PM with account info if you want see ... just let me know!.
Can it be set up to show more than 1 topic. Or scroll between them?
Yes I know that I can use the other ticker - but what if I want to use two bars.
That's not what this hook is intended to do - it also wouldn't be possible without a large rewrite due to the way it uses the cached data. :)
Hi is there a template bit generated into the skin to display this? I need to change the actual css class it is using.
Indeed there is - Board Index -> latestNewsBoardIndex.
Does this works on IPB 3.3.0 ?
Is it possible to add Calendar events to be displayed instead of latest topics? Thanks
As above, it's not what the hook is intended to do. :)
I believe there is actually a calendar hook available when you install the Calendar application, so with some skinning, you could get it to look the same as this hook..
This would be great if it could pull the latest topic from multiple forums. I have multiple news forums and at the moment, can only pull from the one.
Shouldn't be too hard... will see what I can do.
Thanks... looking forward to it.
Is it possible for this to pull in the headlines from my wordpress blog here: www.avillafan.com?
You could feed your blog into a hidden forum then set that as the news forum. Directly though, no. It's a bit out of the area that this hook is meant to do...
do you know of a hook that could do this?
Not off the top of my head...
Can't you import the WordPress articles into this hidden forum using the RSS import feature?
