Is it possible to display a forum preview on a page?


Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

I'm wondering if it's possible to put the preview for a single forum, or an entire forum category, on a different page? I don't mean the entire thread list, but the preview of the forum, so like, just putting this:


on a custom page.

Unless there's a single reference code I never found like "{Print_Forum_6_Here_Plz}" :D, I presume it's something one can do with Data List CSS, but I don't know what to refer to in the code for it.

This is the code used in the tutorial:

<ol class='ipsDataList'>
	<li class='ipsDataItem ipsClearfix ipsDataItem_unread'>
		<div class='ipsDataItem_main'>
			<h4 class='ipsDataItem_title'><a href='#'>Pre-sales questions</a></h4>
			<p class='ipsDataItem_meta'>
				Question before you purchase? Post here and get help from both IPS and from other clients. You can also email sales@invisionpower.com for assistance.
			<ul class='ipsDataItem_subList ipsList_inline'>
				<li><a href='#'>Company Feedback</a></li>
				<li class='ipsDataItem_unread'><a href='#'>General Suite Feedback</a></li>
		<dl class='ipsDataItem_stats ipsDataItem_statsLarge'>
			<dt class='ipsDataItem_stats_number'>18,852</dt>
			<dd class='ipsDataItem_stats_type ipsType_light'>Posts</dd>
		<ul class='ipsDataItem_lastPoster ipsDataItem_withPhoto'>
			<li><a href='#' class='ipsUserPhoto ipsUserPhoto_mini ipsPos_left'><img src='image.jpg' alt=''></a></li>
			<li><a href='#'>BBCode’s description variable</a></li>
			<li>By <a href='#'>admin</a></li>
			<li><time class='ipsType_light' data-short='1 dy'>Yesterday</time></li>
		<div class='ipsDataItem_modCheck'>
			<input type='checkbox' checked>

But this code obviously uses static data - I presume what I need is just to learn how to refer to the existing forums themselves, so that the page, when creating itself, looks at the forum database and prints out the information from there. I was wondering if anyone can help me with that ^^ (or if I'm even thinking along the right lines for this).
