I am a php noob. And cant figure this one out.

Basically I want the Big Story of Today block to display all stories posted not just the stories posted that day. What do I need to change in the code to allow me to do this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Change this section from this:


if ($multilingual == 1) {
    $querylang = "AND (alanguage='$currentlang' OR alanguage='')"; /* the OR is needed to display stories who are posted to ALL languages */
} else {
    $querylang = "";
}


To this:


$querylang = ($multilingual == 1) ? "WHERE (alanguage='$currentlang' OR alanguage='')" : "";



And change this line:


$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT sid, title FROM ".$prefix."_stories WHERE (time LIKE '%$tdate%') $querylang ORDER BY counter DESC LIMIT 0,1"));


To this:


$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT sid, title FROM ".$prefix."_stories $querylang ORDER BY counter DESC LIMIT 0, 10"));


You can change the 10 to any number of stories you want it to show. So if you want 100 stories to show then change it to 100. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the help. icon_smile.gif It almost worked. It did display an older story however, it is only displaying one story. Currently I have two stries posted. Before only the story with todays dat would display. Now, the story with the older date is displaying but not the story with todays date.

Paste the PHP code after you made your changes.

sorry for the late reply I was tied up all day yesterday but I am back at it today.

I copied your post exactly, and it is still only displaying one story. However this time its with todays date, even though judging by the code date isnt a factor anymore.
