Full Version: Create Plugin Hook Point

Okay so I am trying to code a plugin that displays the most recent posters avatar on the forum index and have hit a snag, basically I am trying to do this in my code:

$lastpost = "<img src=\"$avatar_url\" />" . $lastpost;

But the snag is here on line 339 of inc/functions_forumlist.php

			// If this forum is a link or is password protected and the user isn't authenticated, set lastpost to "-"
			if($forum['linkto'] != '' || $hideinfo == true || $hidelastpostinfo == true)
				eval("\$lastpost = \"".$templates->get("forumbit_depth2_forum_lastpost_hidden")."\";");

Basically I need to hook in after this part of the code but no hook exists that I can find, is there a way to add in something like build_forumbits_forum_end to go with the build_forumbits_forum hook at the start so I can change the $lastpost variable before the template is built?
Why do you need to hook after that code? The way you're trying to do it is just not recommended. You should make use of find_replace_templatesets() and a new template for the avatar.
Because I am not trying to add a new variable in I am trying to modify one that already exists in the MyBB software. The issue is that the $lastpost variable in the forumbit generation is made AFTER the build_forumbits_forum hook so I can not append the change to it.
Well, feel free to create a hook the same way other hooks are added then ($plugins->run_hooks)... If you really want to do it the wrong way.
Okay the plugin now adds {$lpavatar} into the forum bit but the code my hook is on is not setting the {$lpvariable}, Here is the code.

function xsrpa_avatar_forumlist(&$forum)
	global $lpavatar;
	$lpavatar = "Override!";
