I've installed the standalone forumscript SMF 1.1 RC2. I'd like to include the recent forum topics within a XOOPS block. SMF uses SSI. According to their tutorial I should include:
<?php
require("http://forum.adoptietrefpunt.nl/SSI.php");
?>

within the header of my theme.
Next I should simply include:
{<?php ssi_recentTopics(); ?>}

within my own created xoopsblock.
Whatever happens,...nothing is showing up.
I've already tried all code variations, but I don't get this thing to show up. So after fuzzling and puzzling several nightly hours I give up and call for help.

The main website is located at: http://www.adoptietrefpunt.nl/portaal (using XOOPS 2.013.x)
The forum is located at: http://forum.adoptietrefpunt.nl (still behind closed doors)

If anybody can help me out on this it would be much appreciated!

Grtz., Shine

Have you tried to create a custom block with type set to PHP with the following code:

ssi_recentTopics();


And nothing else?

PHP type blocks automagically add the <?php and ?> tags.

Yes, tried that also. All what happens is that my blocks are getting chaotic and not appearing. It doesn't even wanna store the block I make with your suggested code. (yes content type put on php)

Anybody else?
Where are those ppl who uses this forum as a standalone script and include this in a xoopsblock?
If I remember well there were several long topics of SMF bridge wishes of xoopsusers who already make use of this standalone forum.

I've just about tried every thing I can think of and always get stupid parse errors.

Sorry, haven't gotten it yet.

Thanks Lance!
No I know it is not just me or something that I am doing wrong why I cannot get this block thing to work!

Anybody else of the users of this forumscript in combination with xoops?
