Posts and topics on external page tutorial issues

Post by Kami-sama »

Hey guys.

I was following this tutorial from phpBB wiki: ... rnal_pages
But it does not seam to be working for me. I am probably missing something that has to be initialised in the code.
Opening the php file I get error: "This page isn’t working"

- phpBB 3.2
- new page located in forum root folder
- I have replaced "topic_approved"

could this be due to file permissions?
or maybe something else in the code has to be adjusted for it to work?
or maybe it no longer works with phpBB 3.2?
