Thanks, JB. This has been the one major thing we've been waiting on before we upgraded our production forums to UBB6. I'll install this and play around with it this weekend on our test servers.

I think you are supposed to call it via SSI instead of accessing it directly with your browser.

What does this program do exactly? It looks like you cna post messages to a forum, and they automatically will update your news pages. Is that right? That would be awesome for me, since it takes me forever to update news sections, and it would let moderators who have no HTML experience update the site as well!

He probably never changed the first line in ubbnews.cgi (the one to your perl dir)

Oh, how do I have MULTIPLE slashbb's running. I have one for my Announcements forum, and I want another one for my Submit News forum.

On an Apache server you will more than likely need to use as opposed to exec.

give that a try

Not true freakscene. I'm on an apache and the code works fine (although I don't have my files in a cgi-bin, and I used a "/" to escape the "VC" folder I have the news put in, but that's all besides the point.

Cool, that is nice to know.
I have had problems with past hosts and they told me that was the case (which resolved the problems). Guess they had the exec directive disabled.

I'll give that a shot on my new host when I get home today with a couple other scripts I am using.

Thanks for the info Axeone

Well, after re download the thing I realized that I did forget to edit the perl again. Boy I feel stupid! But that was the ticket.

Check it out here

hey great script. i've been waiting for this forever!

anyways i got it working but the colors are all messed up. go to http://server2048.virtualave.net/jpnetworks/test.shtml. that is where the news is and http://forums.jpneti.com is what my forums look like. I want them both to use the same color scheme. I've set it to do that but it has done it's own for some reason.

another question: i have multiple websites that use the same UBB forum and each site has it's own category. Is there any way for each site to have it's own news?

Hi again! I've added two new features to ver1.1: The possibility to grab news from multiple forums, and limiting the characters of the news topics. So go and redownload if you need these features , if you don't need them .. then there is no need to upgrade.

This hack is great, but you forgot to change the textcolor and textsize.

Bug in cp_vars_ubb_news.pl:
&RegField ("If yes, how many characters to display?", "ubbnew_maxchars","no","5","5","How many characters to display for each topic?","$vars_ubb_news{ubbnews_maxchars}");
Should be:
&RegField ("If yes, how many characters to display?", "ubbnews_maxchars","no","5","5","How many characters to display for each topic?","$vars_ubb_news{ubbnews_maxchars}");

In 1.2 make it so that you can grab from multiple forums, but each forum u grab news from has its own SSI file. =)
