  3. I’m planning a forum on my blog, and seems like wp-forum is an option. I’m testing out phpbb3 too and it also has a plugin to display the latest posts from particular forum.

    Great work, as always..

  4. hatte bei mir nicht funktioniert, da der tableprefix nicht ausgelesen wird, d.h funzt nur bei standard-prefix!

    folgende zeilen sind zu aendern:
    global $wpdb, $PHP_SELF, $wp_version, $table_prefix;

    $latestposts = $wpdb->get_results(“SELECT * FROM “.$table_prefix.”forum_posts ORDER BY date DESC LIMIT “.$r[‘number’].””);

    $getforum = $wpdb->get_row(“SELECT forum_id FROM “.$table_prefix.”forum_threads WHERE id = “.$posts->thread_id.””, OBJECT, 0);

    Брат с армии приехал.
    Рассказывал про то как дедушки играли в карты. Матрацами.
    Да-да, матрацами.
    На каждом нарисована какая либо карта маркером, разумеется духи их держат и перекладывают по игровому полю.
    По словам брата игра забавная, но самое сложное в ней тасовать колоду.
