TXPhorum: A simple forum solution for Textpattern

This thread has been replaced by this one here, as of TXPhorum v0.3.

Introducing TXPhorum, a simple forum solution for Textpattern.

Using a combination of common plugins [plus a new one of my own] I’ve built a working model here.

For more information, see the test forum posts or visit the TXPhorum Manual

Seriously, what are you on?

The way you casually drop bombs like postmaster and this on the community is pretty damn funny.

Ben

The good :) — Nice work. Thank you.

The not-so-good: In my test install, clicking on the link in the index page leads to the post page as intended. However, all sorts of replies show up. The problem is I did not enter any replies yet. The replies are being pulled from other sections. Not sure why – any suggestions?

A question – when clicking on the name of the person who posted – what should be the expected results?

Thanks

Mike

Re: TXPhorum: A simple forum solution for Textpattern

maverick,

That is a result when the <txp:article_custom /> tag isn’t set up properly. It’s calling a custom field that doesn’t exist in your installation, and that is sending it haywire (pulls articles from all sections).

This is an error with the template and the instructions (fails to mention this) — the form you’ve copied and pasted (“txphorum_post”) has the following at the bottom:

<txp:article_custom post_or_reply="<txp:article_id />" form="txphorum_reply" sort="Posted asc" />

You need to replace “post_or_reply” with the name of your custom_2. Alternatively, you could go into your Admin preferences and change the name of custom_2 to “post_or_reply”. That should do it.

The author name thing — I’d rather have just the name, and not link anywhere, so I’ve now changed it in my txphorum_index form so that the tag is <txp:author /> . If you want it linked, read this page for help.

Re: TXPhorum: A simple forum solution for Textpattern

mr. dale,

dropping bombs is a wicked pleasure of mine.

maverick,

there are some differences between the live site and the code that I published. If you are really struggling to get it to all fit together, I think it might be easier once I’ve republished it. There are a couple of issues with the published material: I did a final “cleanup” of the code and there were some errors in it; what’s running on the live site is the “unclean” working version. Also I’ve made a bunch of changes to the forum since I posted it a couple of days ago. anyway, figured I better let you know in case you’re banging your head.
