Development of a script to show the latest X postings on a forum-external-page, version 0.2.1 (Announcements)
In the MLF-project forum the question about a script to show the latest postings on a separate page came up. After a consultation with the MLF-project-forum-member Alfie, who wrote such a script for his own forum (MLF1.8 beta) he handed the source code out to me and I began to rewrite the script for the up-to-date versions of MLF (2.4.x). The result is a small script that is adaptable to an existing website. The script works when installed on the webspace, where the MLF2-forum itself is installed. Currently the script works on a separate page but it is planned to introduce a template for inclusion in an existing web page in the near future.
- configure the script in the INI file
- load the database settings (database credentials, table names) directly from the forum installation
- adjust the HTML structure in the templates
- adjust the styling in the CSS file
You can download the script in its current version v0.2.1 from the Git repository on Github.
