I don't want to "copy" this site, but I would like the points leader board to be displayed on my forums at the bottom of the page with the statistics. I know where to add it, but I don't know how.

Since you cannot use comcode in the .tpl files, I thought I'd try to just copy and paste the points_leader_board.tpl stuff to the wrapper.tpl file for the forums. Yeah, nice try Eric, it's not as simple as that!! rofl

Any support would be grateful to those who could shout out some ideas.

You can use a block in a template.
{$BLOCK,block=main_leaderboard}

  • 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.

It's a start. Thanks Chris!

I get this now: "A block file is missing: main_leaderboard"

I probably spelled the block name wrong...
