NAME: Latest Topics ASP

DESCRIPTION: An ultra-light weight fast script that will allow you to display the latest threads on your message board on your main page etc. Version .60 (d)

AUTHOR: Rob Williams robwil@home.com

REQUIREMENTS: Server that supports ASP 3.0 or 2.0 (should work although not tested) and UBB 6.0 and above.

NOTE: This is not a hack it requires no modification to the UBB source code and simply interfaces with the text database files of UBB.

Any problems or questions feel free to email me at robwil@home.com or ICQ me at 40555132.

DOWNLOAD URL: http://www.threshed.com/downloads/latestposts.zip

Also you can view some sites that are currently using the script:

CSWav
Warcraft 3

Possibility if enough interest to port to php

This so easy to accomplish the latest topics hack. All you do is strip out the html of your template so it just posts the basic data. Then call it via ssi to your front page. You will have to tweak the HTML to mathc your scheme. Only problem is the Cinderella effect, It clears at midnight.

Your forget the fact that on NT server SSI does not work like it does on Unix/Linux servers. You can't use querystrings in SSI and does not execute CGI code like it does on unix/linux.

Can you do it in Perl instead? :rolleyes: (It would be logical cause UBB is perl script)

Just change the last 4 variables, save as .asp and run. Simple as that
