There was a very small update for the Forums News module today. Something I just noticed today on my site and instantly annoyed the hell out of me, so I had to fix it.

When viewing on your home page, like normal, you would see the amount of articles that you selected in the backend, but, when you went to the module view,

, you would see the same amount, and in my case, it was 3. That did not look right at all, so I changed it, and now it is set to 10 when viewing the module view.

To add this to your site, you can just redownload the module and upload the single file public_html/modules/Forum_News/index.php to that folder location on your site, OR, you can be adventuress and try to do it your self. To do that, do the following instructions.

Manual Edit:
Open: public_html/modules/Forum_News/index.php


PHP:  [ Select all ]

    // Number of results per page
if(isset($_GET['page']) && is_numeric($_GET['page'])) {
$currentPage = (int)$_GET['page'];
$currentPage 1;


PHP:  [ Select all ]

// Per page alteration if on home page or in module view
$per_page = (defined('HOME_FILE')) ? $perpage '10'


That's it. Nothing to it. All I did was add in a ternary operator that will determine if you are viewing from the home page or not, and if not, set the count to 10.
