different tags to add to your posts in subject line
I've been looking for a "post tag" mod but haven't been able to find one. I'm sorry if I overlooked something. I'll assume it's not available for now.

I was wondering if it is possible to create a plugin that lets you attach a pre-defined tag to a post (I think I've seen it with vBulletin software). So in example, when you have a category with news items, you can pre-define certain categories (tags) which you can attach to a post like: "sport", "politics", "media" etc.

The reason behind this is that I'm trying to find a way to pull posts from a specific forum ID and post them on the front-end of the website. However, at this time, it's not possible (as far as I know) to define which post subjects (or tags) must be pulled from specific forum ID. You can either pull all posts or no posts.

I'm going to run serveral websites (front-ends) based on one forum installation. For these front-ends I'm looking for a way to pull the specific content from the same forum ID ("news forum") appropiate for the specific website.

Anyone knows if it exists?


Or is there another way to do something like this? Like in example, define in the news script used on the front-end that it must display all posts of forum ID=x "if topic title starts with [sports]"? This way I could manually use a text tag in front of every new topic so the scripts knows what to pull and what not..

The front-end code I'm currently using is:


    $fid = 2;
    $limit = 6;
    $forumpath = 'forum/';

    define("IN_MYBB", 1);
    require_once MYBB_ROOT."inc/class_parser.php";
    $parser = new postParser;
  <span class="forumtext">
    $query = $db->simple_select('threads', '*', "fid='2' ORDER BY tid DESC LIMIT {$limit}");
    if($db->num_rows($query) > 0)
        while($row = $db->fetch_array($query))
            $query2 = $db->simple_select('posts', '*', "pid='{$row['firstpost']}'");
            $row2 = $db->fetch_array($query2);
            $date = my_date($mybb->settings['dateformat'], $row2['dateline'], "", 1);
            $time = my_date($mybb->settings['timeformat'], $row2['dateline'], "", 1);

            $options = array(
                            'allow_html' => '1', 
                            'filter_badwords' => '1', 
                            'allow_mycode' => '1', 
                            'allow_smilies' => '1', 
                            'nl2br' => '1', 
                            'me_username' => '1'
            $message = $parser->parse_message($row2['message'], $options);
	    echo("<a href=\"{$forumpath}showthread.php?tid={$row['tid']}\">{$row['subject']}</a><br> 
            {$date} {$time} door <a href=\"{$forumpath}member.php?action=profile&uid={$row2['uid']}\">{$row2['username']}</a><br><br><br>");
            echo("<a href=\"{$forumpath}showthread.php?tid={$row['tid']}\">{$row['replies']} Reacties</a><br><br><br><hr />");
        echo 'Nothing to display.';

MrD. posted a way to do this with his script (as seen above). For anyone interested in the solution, read here:


I'll ask a mod to close this thread.
