Alright, have the flu but going to try and do this correctly.

Here is my block list in the ACP

1494006714_ACPBlockList.thumb.png.38d94720a490e1100ddb1ff1f39cb483.png

 

1A - Here is the front page view of all Latest topics and supposed to be in order as to latest reply.  (whats missing here as you'll see below is the topic "Keiffer")

1855583194_FPGeneralLatest.thumb.jpg.981fdb1f695955ef59b90b6cdecc290a.jpg

 

1B - Block Settings for above

165079770_ACPGeneralLatest.thumb.png.e726e4df3559e06b3bccf3cc6a85aef2.png

 

Even though topics from all forums is selected, some topics that were replied back to are not showing up.

 

 

1B- Here is my second block on the front page for one forum List,

939118219_FPLatestNational.thumb.jpg.35d439e18ee0da2944446c1cf5596f33.jpg

 

2B- Here is what's actually in that forum that should show up.  What's missing should be "Kieffer | Starlilite then "Pride".  But up above ^ it shows Pride and omits Kieffer

2C - Here us the settings for this block.  Just one selected.

The third here kind of a repeat but it's still another block I have from the front page (Wilkie 520 in wrong order see below)

What would really benefit me and to help get free members to upgrade to a subscription is if this permissions was observed in your mod below.  "Users can see topics posted by others" but cannot access content.  Before your mod I used a portal page by a modder, and this was observed

Hope I'm making sense.  Maybe I'm doing someething wrong

 

Anyhow, thanks again!

I'm a little lost.  So how Do I show Latest replied to topics?

 

I still have the Portal from DevFuse installed and I just enabled it real quick to show what I'm trying to do.  This displays the latest replied to topics

Yes, that's the block I used to create these, and the one I'm having problems with

It's not, forum posts have 2 options either random or newest your image shows the options available for forum topics, plus the forum posts dont show topic images and show the actual comments and not the topics text, this block was introduced in 1.0.7 the latest update it's a brand new block

Ahhhhh, LoL that post up above ^ with the check mark you displayed threw my off and I was copying that.  Yours are different than mine.  Got it.

 

But, now that I use the one I'm supposed to, it's showing multiple posts.  Can I just show the topic that was last replied to, not the individual comments in that topic?

Yes, I did this first.

ACP > Applications > Select the application (landing) > then click the arrow > this will show another 'landing page' > click the padlock and choose your permissions.

You can then access the page using this link (with our own url) - https://MYSITE.com/index.php?app=landingpage&module=main&controller=landingpage

Obviously then set the app to default and change the permissions to set as home page.

Is there a way we can grab articles (pages) into the same layout as topics (with grabbing pictures from the first posts) with a selection box to pick what categories we'd like to show.

Also, with calendar events too?

I don't own pages so can't do any work with it

I'll look into the events and see what I can pull out

I just updated, did you add the page url anywhere because I don't see it. Just curious.

If you ever see me I'll allow you to slap me, ( I completly forgot to add it, I will add it today for the next update )

Speaking of, I have re-wrote most of the blocks so it will look a bit better ( much on mobiles ) I have also added 2 more blocks

Main Block Carousel ( Multiple Selections )

  • With this you can create lots and lots of main blocks have them disabled then show them in one carousel block ( This will inherit the who can view each one permissions )
  • There is also a setting to show a background colour to the text as seen on the welcome to your site image below

Secondary Blocks Carousel ( Multiple Selections )

  • With this you can create lots and lots of secondary blocks have them disabled then show them in one carousel block ( This will inherit the who can view each one permissions )

Found a bug -

Using - Content Blocks ( Multiple Selections ) - if you have no text and just use pictures (I used 3 blocks and 3 pictures) it duplicates all 3 images into all of the blocks. This mean each box shows the same 3 picstures, so in all it shows 9.

Could I request image blocks with URL links only.

Just like the Content Blocks ( Multiple Selections ) but no text, and have an option to show maybe 5-10 in a whole block? I don't want an image carousel, but 3/4 seperate boxes that I can upload an image to. But have it so I can set custom URLs so when people click the image it will take them to a desired link.

On my home page I'd like to show it like this -
blocks.thumb.JPG.4b71efefe8f80fe6fa22c0bac5edbcaa.JPG

I don't want to use the editor as it wont be responsive. And I really like how the forums/topics blocks is layed out currently. As I set it to 4 boxes on desktop view.

You should use carousel for topics and other content ones its really nice on desktop and mobiles and you can add as many as you want in one line

And the above bug report. It effects other blocks too? I went to add something else but the images I had uploaded in the previous block were showing in the editor.

Not sure if that was saved editor content ...

With this request could we have it so there are no title boxes that are required for the whole block or individual image blocks. I don’t mind having them but I won’t use them.
