How to Make Recent Topics List Items Link to the First Post in a Topic

Hello,

I'm using the default theme.

In the theme settings I have set it to show recent topics on board index. However when you click on a link in the list of posts displayed in the recent topics list that is shown, it takes you to the most recent reply in that post. How can I make it link instead to the original post (i.e the first post in the thread or the top of the first page of the thread)

You will have to make an edit to that BoardIndex.template.php file

Code: (find) [Select]
		foreach ($context['latest_posts'] as $post)
{
echo '
then add the following in a new line after that { and before the echo as below.
Code: (add) [Select]
			$post['link'] = '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=' . $post['topic'] . ' rel="nofollow">' . $post['subject'] . '</a>';

That should work
Be safe, Be kind, Happy Programing

Okay thanks a lot.

The links are now pointing to the first post quite alright so your solution worked, just that at the end of the urls it appends a space and then rel= . Not rel="nofollow", just rel=

As in:

https://myforum.com/index.php?topic=69 rel=

Its missing an end quote ....  here use this
Code: [Select]
			$post['link'] = '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=' . $post['topic'] . '" rel="nofollow">' . $post['subject'] . '</a>';
