It's in the readme. You can either have it link to the thread or last poster.

You can't degrade from 6 to 5 because ALL your Member files need to be re-wroten to v5 style.

Anyway, get the readme for last poster in the Database.

dude i know I must sound like an idiot but I cant figure this out..

the file doesnt have a readme and the discussion thread is gone.. the actual hack itself says nothing about making it so it shows last post and last poster

there is a thread on this and the same ? i asked was asked like 4x and no one ever gave an answer.. so could someone please explain to me how to make UBB5 show last post / last post by both together??

I have tried using that mod listed in the database and it worked for the most part but the problem is it lists the last post in the forum name column where I want it in the last post column.. I did a little fudging and got it where it needs to be but the problem Im having is this..

the last post for forum1 is showing as blank, the last post for forum2 is showing as forum3's last post, the last post for forum3 is showins as forum4's last post..you get the point..so anyhow Im looking for anyhelp I could possibly get.. Im going to post my Ultimate.cgi here to see if anyone can PLEASE help me smile

ps.. sorry for being a pain..

So you can't post the link to your UBB? Just use address of UBB

the sub the included the last post routine was being called after the first call to &LastThread $LastPostBy so it didnt know what it was and obviously didnt fill it in, so it was one off on everything.. I created a new sub just for the last post and call it before the first run and it fixed that problem..

Thats good, I remember asking on SpAwN's for a long time ago so if the forum was up I would have reffered to that.
