Add forum title to thread list of a master forum

    I have created a master forum (threads from several forums aggregated into a master forum thread list).

    On the second line, before the thread starter's username, I would like to add the title of the forum that the thread is from.

    I'm digging into thread_list code (see below), and I've found where I need to edit. However, I'm not sure exactly how to call the forum title of the thread.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank You.

    PHP:
    <div class="secondRow">
                    <
    div class="posterDate muted">
                        <
    xen:username user="$threadtitle="{xen:phrase thread_starter}" />,
                        <
    a{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, ' href="{xen:link threads, $thread}"'} class="faint"><xen:datetime time="$thread.post_date" title="{xen:if {$visitor.user_id}, '{xen:phrase go_to_first_message_in_thread}'}" /></a><xen:if is="{$showForumLink}">,
                        <
    a href="{xen:link forums, $thread.forum}" class="forumLink">{$thread.forum.title}</a></xen:if>

                        <
    xen:if is="{$showLastPageNumbers} AND {$thread.lastPageNumbers}">
                            <
    span class="itemPageNav">
                                <
    span>...</span>
                                <
    xen:foreach loop="$thread.lastPageNumbers" value="$pageNumber">
                                    <
    a href="{xen:link threads, $thread, 'page={$pageNumber}'}">{$pageNumber}</a>
                                </
    xen:foreach>
                            </
    span>
                        </
    xen:if>
                    </
    div>

    There is already a flag for this. Example:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> find_new_threads

    Code:
    			<xen:include template="thread_list_item">
    				<xen:set var="$showForumLink">1</xen:set>
    				<xen:set var="$showLastPageNumbers">1</xen:set>
    			</xen:include>
    
    You need to set $showForumLink when including thread_list_item. This would normally be in the content template of the page:

    Thank you! Let me see if I have this right...

    Goto the content template of that page. Add the code that is pasted above. Done?

    Sorry... I know some php, but not enough to follow what you wrote above. My apologies, and thank you for your time.

    Find the code that includes thread_list_item and modify it to set that flag appropriately. It's not necessarily copy/paste. And I am assuming that your "master" forum is an addon that uses the thread_list_item template.

    Okay...

    Found the code in the thread_list template that includes the thread_list_item template. I added the <xen:set var="$showForumLink">1</xen:set> (see below) to no effect. I will keep trying and let you know. Thank you for your help.

    PHP:
    <xen:include template="ad_thread_list_below_stickies" />
           
            <
    xen:hook name="thread_list_threads">
            <
    xen:foreach loop="$threadsvalue="$thread">
                <
    xen:include template="thread_list_item">
                    <
    xen:set var="$showForumLink">1</xen:set>
                 </
    xen:include>

            </
    xen:foreach>
            </
    xen:hook>
           
            <
    xen:edithint template="thread_list_item_edit" />
        <
    xen:else />
            <
    li class="primaryContent">{xen:phrase there_no_threads_to_display}</li>
        </
    xen:if>
        </
    ol>

    Hi there, can someone help me out with this?

    If I use your snippet with forumlink, it shows me the most recent posted forumlink, instead of the unique forums for each post. So for example, if I have showing 15 recent posts, they all get the forumlink of the LAST POSTED forum instead of their own. How can I solve that?

    That is just a flag. The thread records must have the forum record in them, as you can see in the code from thread_list_item:

    Code:
    <xen:if is="{$showForumLink}"><span class="containerName">,
    					<a href="{xen:link forums, $thread.forum}" class="forumLink">{$thread.forum.title}</a></span></xen:if>
    
    This means checking your thread records to ensure the forum data is there, and possibly modifying the PHP code which fetches those thread records. This is a programming problem and I suggest posting in this forum:
