[Block] Recent POSTS scrolling with hover over previews.
« on: January 02, 2010, 01:33:46 PM »
Name of Snippet: Recent POSTS scrolling with hover over previews
SMF/TP versions tested: SMF 1.1.11; TinyPortal v1.0 beta 4
Block Type: PHP
Author: Prometheus Fire, Freddy888 and digger at SMF
Link to Discussion: Click here....
Requirements : The block uses the NiceToolTips MOD at SMF in combination with the block code below.  So you will have to install that module too.

Note : sometimes bbc code may not be handled correctly - this is something for the NiceToolTips maker to work on - so try requesting that they work on that.

Description: Will scroll recent posts upwards in a marquee and show previews when a user hovers over them.

This code excludes the recycle boards, omits private boards that a user cannot see and uses the NiceToolTips settings to limit the number of characters shown.
