Where has he gone???

Where's FatWhitey, aka Ev gone?

I haven't seen him on the T17 forums or here in ages.....


Note: I'm posting this here, since I remember he had close links with this site :)

He left the Dream17 Staff team. I don't know why he's vanished from the forum scene though.

I spoke to him on MSN a while back. He's doing okay, he seems to have changed a lot. He certainly seems a lot more upbeat...

Meh, those "life" things are overrated.

eBay's got some good deals going though :)

Yes please. Or a Fuse, if you've got one.

Well, no, but I might be able to bring you some fudge from work next time somebody leaves 50 pounds of it on the floor for me to clean up.

You've said that before. I'll believe it when I see it.

Until Ev gets here, I declare this thread within the realsm of pointless banter.

Free fudge for all!

Yeah. Could you hack the forum script or something to order posts by post_id instead of by time?

Yeah, here it is, in viewtopic.php:

Code: Select all

				$sql = "SELECT p.post_id
					FROM " . POSTS_TABLE . " p, " . SESSIONS_TABLE . " s,  " . USERS_TABLE . " u
					WHERE s.session_id = '$session_id'
						AND u.user_id = s.session_user_id
						AND p.topic_id = $topic_id
						AND p.post_time >= u.user_lastvisit
					ORDER BY p.post_time ASC
					LIMIT 1";
I bet if you switched "ORDER BY p.post_time ASC" to "ORDER BY p.post_id ASC" it'd order them right. It'd mess it up if you merged threads, but since phpbb doesn't have that feature I'm not worried.

Ah, I think this is the bit you should change:

Code: Select all

$sql = "SELECT u.username, u.user_id, u.user_posts, u.user_from, u.user_website, u.user_sitename, u.user_email, u.user_icq, u.user_aim, u.user_yim, u.user_regdate, u.user_msnm, u.user_viewemail, u.user_rank, u.user_sig, u.user_sig_bbcode_uid, u.user_avatar, u.user_avatar_type, u.user_allowavatar, u.user_allowsmile, p.*,  pt.post_text, pt.post_subject, pt.bbcode_uid
	FROM " . POSTS_TABLE . " p, " . USERS_TABLE . " u, " . POSTS_TEXT_TABLE . " pt
	WHERE p.topic_id = $topic_id
		$limit_posts_time
		AND pt.post_id = p.post_id
		AND u.user_id = p.poster_id
	ORDER BY p.post_time $post_time_order
	LIMIT $start, ".$board_config['posts_per_page'];
Specifically, the ORDER BY line.
