Try These:

Source:http://www.ayhsel.de/ftopict-103.html
1. Backup the files that will be edited:
- modules/Members_List/index.php
- Just in case you haven't applied the forum points hack already, modules/Forums/language/lang-(your lang)/lang_main.php

depending on your sort of theme either
-- themes/(your theme)/forums/memberlist_body.tpl
or
-- modules/Forums/templates/(your template)/memberlist_body.tpl

You can verify which template to edit by looking at the directory of your current nuke theme. If it contains a /forums folder, edit the template inside that (it overrides the forum modules' template). If it doesn't contain a forums folder, modules/Forums/templates is the right place.

On request I added a group-column, too. If you want to add it to your existing memberlist points hack look for the red lines, if you only want to add the points column ignore the red lines
You won't be able to sort by group, as the group is calculated for each user and not the result of a db query.

2. Changes to index.php:

Search:

$mode_types_text = array($lang['Sort_Joined'], $lang['Sort_Username'], $lang['Sort_Location'], $lang['Sort_Posts'], $lang['Sort_Email'],  $lang['Sort_Website'], $lang['Sort_Top_Ten']);
$mode_types = array('joindate', 'username', 'location', 'posts', 'email', 'website', 'topten');



Change to/replace by:

$mode_types_text = array($lang['Sort_Joined'], $lang['Sort_Username'], $lang['Sort_Location'], $lang['Sort_Posts'], $lang['Points'], $lang['Sort_Email'],  $lang['Sort_Website'], $lang['Sort_Top_Ten']);
$mode_types = array('joindate', 'username', 'location', 'posts', 'points', 'email', 'website', 'topten');



Search:

        'L_POSTS' => $lang['Posts'],


Below, in a new line, add:

        'L_POINTS' => $lang['Points'],


For group, in a new line add:

        'L_GROUP' => $lang['Pgroup'],



Search:

        case 'posts':
                $order_by = "user_posts $sort_order LIMIT $start, " . $board_config['topics_per_page'];
                break;


Below, in a new line, add:

        case 'points':
                $order_by = "points $sort_order LIMIT $start, " . $board_config['topics_per_page'];
                break;


Search:

$sql = "SELECT username, user_id, user_viewemail, user_posts, user_regdate, user_from, user_website, user_email, user_icq, user_aim, user_yim, user_msnm, user_avatar, user_avatar_type, user_allowavatar



Change to/replace by:

$sql = "SELECT username, user_id, user_viewemail, user_posts, points, user_regdate, user_from, user_website, user_email, user_icq, user_aim, user_yim, user_msnm, user_avatar, user_avatar_type, user_allowavatar



For group, Search:

{
        message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, 'Could not query users', '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
}



After that, in a new line, add:

// get groupsrow
$sql = "SELECT name, points
        FROM nuke_groups
        ORDER BY points ASC";
if ( !($result2 = $db->sql_query($sql)) )
{
        message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, "Could not obtain groups information.", '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
}

$groupsrow = array();
while ( $row2 = $db->sql_fetchrow($result2) )
{
        $groupsrow[] = $row2;
}
$db->sql_freeresult($result2);
// end get groupsrow


Search:

                $posts = ( $row['user_posts'] ) ? $row['user_posts'] : 0;


Below, in a new line, add:

            $points = $row['points'];


For group, in a new line, add:

// usergroup hack
        $poster_group = '';
        if ( $username == ANONYMOUS ) {
        }
        else if ( $points )
        {
                for($j = 0; $j < count($groupsrow); $j++)
                {
                        if ( $points >= $groupsrow[$j]['points'] )
                        {
                                $poster_group = ( $groupsrow[$j]['name'] != '' ) ? $groupsrow[$j]['name'] : '';
                        }
                }
        }
// usergroup hack end


Search:

                        'POSTS' => $posts,


Below, in a new line, add:

                        'POINTS' => $points,


For group, in a new line, add:

// usergroup hack
                        'GROUP' => $poster_group,
// usergroup hack end


Save the file.


3. Add output to memberlist_body.tpl:
Edit: Note that the class parameters in the example below are characteristic for my template and will differ from yours. When searching, try to exclude the class parameter.

Search:

     <th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_POSTS}</th>


Below, in a new line, add:

     <th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_POINTS}</th>


For group, in a new line, add:

     <th class="thTop" nowrap="nowrap">{L_GROUP}</th>


Search:

     <td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.POSTS}</span></td>


Below, in a new line, add:

     <td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.POINTS}</span></td>


For group, in a new line, add:

     <td class="{memberrow.ROW_CLASS}" align="center" valign="middle"><span class="gen">{memberrow.GROUP}</span></td>


Look some lines below and find the ...colspan="X"... line, add the number of columns you just created (+1 or +2), to avoid that the footer row gets too short.

Save the file.

The next step is only necessary, if you didn't apply my forum points hack already.
4. Add language variable to lang_main.php:

Search:

$lang['Posts'] = 'Beiträge';


Below, in a new line, add (translate 'Punkte' to Points in your language):

$lang['Points'] = 'Punkte';


For group, in a new line, add (translate 'Gruppe' to Group in your language):

$lang['Pgroup'] = 'Gruppe';



Save the file, upload all three hacked files to your server and check your members list.
Sorting by points is also included.



==================================================



Source:http://www.ayhsel.de/ftopict-99.html

1. Backup the files that will be edited:
- modules/Forums/viewtopic.php
- modules/Forums/language/lang-(your lang)/lang_main.php

depending on your sort of theme either
-- themes/(your theme)/forums/viewtopic_body.tpl
or
-- modules/Forums/templates/(your template)/viewtopic_body.tpl

You can verify which template to edit by looking at the directory of your current nuke theme. If it contains a /forums folder, edit the template inside that (it overrides the forum modules' template). If it doesn't contain a forums folder, modules/Forums/templates is the right place.

2. Add the points to the query in viewtopic.php:

Find:

//
// Go ahead and pull all data for this topic
//


Near the end of the 'sql =' line below, add 'u.points', afterwards it should look like this:

...u.user_allowsmile, u.points, p.*,...


Find:

$ranksrow = array();
while ( $row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result) )
{
        $ranksrow[] = $row;
}
$db->sql_freeresult($result);


After that, in a new line add:

// get groupsrow
$sql = "SELECT name, points
        FROM nuke_groups
        ORDER BY points ASC";
if ( !($result2 = $db->sql_query($sql)) )
{
        message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, "Could not obtain groups information.", '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
}

$groupsrow = array();
while ( $row2 = $db->sql_fetchrow($result2) )
{
        $groupsrow[] = $row2;
}
$db->sql_freeresult($result2);
// end groupsrow


Find:

        $poster_posts = ( $postrow[$i]['user_id'] != ANONYMOUS ) ? $lang['Posts'] . ': ' . $postrow[$i]['user_posts'] : '';


After that, in a new line add:

        $poster_points = ( $postrow[$i]['points'] != '0' ) ? $lang['Points'] . ': ' . $postrow[$i]['points'] : '';


Find:

        //
        // Handle anon users posting with usernames
        //


Before add:

        //
        // Generate groups, set them to empty string initially.
        //
        $poster_group = '';
        if ( $postrow[$i]['user_id'] == ANONYMOUS )
        {
        }
        else if ( $postrow[$i]['points'] )
        {
                for($j = 0; $j < count($groupsrow); $j++)
                {
                        if ( $postrow[$i]['points'] >= $groupsrow[$j]['points'] )
                        {
                                $poster_group = ( $groupsrow[$j]['name'] != '' ) ? $lang['Pgroup'] . ': ' . $groupsrow[$j]['name'] : '';
                        }
                }
        }


Find:

                'POSTER_POSTS' => $poster_posts,


After that, in a new line add:

                'POSTER_POINTS' => $poster_points,


After that, in a new line add:

                'POSTER_GROUP' => $poster_group,


Save the file.

3. Add output to viewtopic_body.tpl:

Find (i shortened the really long line |...|):

   <!-- BEGIN postrow -->
   <tr>
      <td width="150" align="left" valign="top" class="{postrow.ROW_CLASS}">|...|{postrow.POSTER_POSTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_POINTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_FROM}</span><br /></td>


After '{postrow.POSTER_POSTS}<br />', insert '{postrow.POSTER_POINTS}<br />', so that looks like this:

{postrow.POSTER_POSTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_POINTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_FROM}</span>


For the group display, add '{postrow.POSTER_GROUP}<br />'


Save the file.

4. Add the Points language variable to lang_main.php:

Find:

$lang['Posts'] = 'Posts';


After that, in a new line add (to the right it's 'Points' in your language):

$lang['Points'] = 'Points';


After that, in a new line add:

$lang['Pgroup'] = 'Group';


Save the file, upload all three to their respective server folders and check your forums.

WHen you click the link it opens a text page with the instructions on how to add them in it. Do you see that page?

I've followed the instructions on the forum.txt to add points to the forum but no luck. I have a question on the section where it states to find // Handle anon users posting with usernames and add before (!) the line

//
// Generate groups, set them to empty string initially.
//
$poster_group = '';
if ( $postrow[$i]['user_id'] == ANONYMOUS )
{
}
else if ( $postrow[$i]['points'] )
{
for($j = 0; $j < count($groupsrow); $j++)
{
if ( $postrow[$i]['points'] >= $groupsrow[$j]['points'] )
{
$poster_group = ( $groupsrow[$j]['name'] != '' ) ? $lang['Pgroup'] . ': ' . $groupsrow[$j]['name'] : '';
}
}
}

Which I did and I get an error. which states "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home2/lostboy/public_html/main/modules/Forums/viewtopic.php on line 996" Please see my attach file and see what I'm doing wrong.

Hello

Have you installed the install file that comes with the point system? and Make sure you installed everything correctly into the files it say to edit.
