[RFC|Merged] Last topic title in forum list

Post by jsebean » Sat Nov 12, 2011 12:29 am

Ticket http://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-11025
PR https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3/pull/924



I think it would be nice if phpBB included the recent topic title for that forum on the board index/anywhere else forums are listed. Eg. There is the mod NV advanced last topic titles, which is an excellent mod. I was wondering if phpBB team might look into integrating this, or something like this into the actual release of phpBB 3.2? It is very useful to have so you can see the latest topic in that forum.

Other bulletin board software have this built in, like MyBB and SMF.

Comments?

The template variable is by default generated, but when prosilver was designed it was decided to not utilise that in the default template. Therefore its pretty trivial to make the default template display the last topic title. But would this replace the date (as most do) or add the title?

I think it would be worth it to simply create an administration panel setting to allow users to decide if they want to display it and how. I personally think that adding it to the information (rather than replacing the date and such) is better, but giving the admin the option is a good idea, imo.

Personally I think we can incorporate this feature. It is not very complicated, and if users want it then why not?

Yup, I agree we should add that option.

Hi
I am Rahul. I have made a patch for this bug (#10650).
Commit URL: https://github.com/rahulr92/phpbb3/comm ... 8725e05fe2

I have added a choice in the ACP panel to enable/disable this feature. Presently, the feature is enabled by default. But as it is a new addition that changes the existing functionality, I am not sure whether I am right in doing so. Please suggest whether this feature should be on/off by default.

Thanks

Why not a colum with recent topic from all forums on the side of the forum index?

That would be a separate RFC. But IMO, that would be best as a MOD/Extension.

I'll suggest it as a RFC then, just to see what the team think about the idea.
