Link from Article to Forum Formatting Problem

I want to include a link from articles to forum in the template for the default main page and detailed pages. When I use...

Code:

<%PunBB%>

...I get a "0" linked to the proper forum. But that's not what I want. I want the link to say "Questions?".
When I use the recommended ...

Code:

<%PunBB( <a href=",">Questions?</a> )%>

... I get a the word "Questions?" linked to...

Code:

http://myURL.org/BlogCMS/%3Ca%20href='http://myURL.org/BlogCMS/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3'%3E%200%20%3C/a%3E

...which of course, doesn't take me to the forum.

Re: Link from Article to Forum Formatting Problem

Well, I hate to answer my own question...but I hate it even worse when someone posts a question, gets an answer but doesn't share it with others.

So, here's what I have done to fix my problem.

I opened NP_PunBB.php, in admin > plugins > NP_PunBB.php, and commented out the following lines of code...

Code:

387   //echo "<a href='";
389   //echo "'> ".$data['num_replies']." </a>";

Then on the default main homepage template, I inserted the following code in the 'item footer' box within the 'iteminfo' div...

Code:

<%PunBB( <a href=",">Questions?</a> )%>

Now, I have the word "Questions?" under each article, with a proper hyperlink to the forum topic I specified when I posted the article.

If you have a better solution, please let me know.

I think your problem is a clash with another plugin.

Cause the recommended example does work on my site, but I run Nucleus.

Re: Link from Article to Forum Formatting Problem

This is what I have done:

Code:

echo "<a href='";
          echo $CONF['IndexURL']."forum/viewtopic.php?id=".$msg['topicid'];
          //echo "'> ".$data['num_replies']." </a>";
          echo "'> Enter discussion </a>";
          echo " Number of comments: ".$data['num_replies'];

and in the template I use only <%punBB%> without the text1,text2 parameters.
