The news is pulling too many topics from the forum. I only want it to pull 3 and it pulls a lot more. I thought I set in the site settings only to show 3 in the news section.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

The 'main_forum_news' block defaults to taking 14 items from the forum. To change this you need to use the block with a 'param' parameter.
Let's pretend I was using a forum named 'Latest News' for storing my news. My Comcode might look like…

Code

[block forum="Latest News"]main_forum_news[/block]
but it should be…

Code

[block="3" forum="Latest News"]main_forum_news[/block]

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Got it to work there was some strange code in there some thing around the news block.

Code

code class="comcode_code_content">      [block="3" forum="PPY News!"]main_forum_news[/block]</code>
After I removed that it worked.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

My first guess would be that you were looking at a cached version - and it's a coincidence that this later edit happened later (or otherwise triggered a dump of the caches).

Again - when in doubt, try dumping your site caches ;).
