I'm setting up a small bulletin board for some friends of mine.

I'd like to install that function that shows a quick preview of a thread when you run your cursor over the topic.

Anyone know what that is/how to do that?

vBulletin is better for this stuff, but it's not free (which is why it's better Posted Image). But Googling here's a couple ways to do it in phpbb:

Javascript version - seems to be finnicky

Standard 'title' tag method - can't seem to find the exact code though

Phil:

If you are know how the message for the first post in the thread is written go to the hyperlink for that thread and put the variable for that thread in the "title" tag of the hyperlink.

Say for example the message is $message for the variable. Then you would put in that variable in the hyperlink to the thread title say "This is the title of the thread" and in html it is represented as www.yourplace. com/thethreadtitle " alt=" $message " title = " $message ">
without all the spaces.

This will create a mouseover that works in all the browser types for that hyperlink.

Thank you both very much.

I found a couple in the mods section of phpbb.com (who'da thunk itPosted Image ). They have a first or last post java version, and a simple one that displays the last post, which is the one I think'll be useful for this group.

Interesting option to display the last post instead of the first post contents.
