This is a script we use on the norwegian community root.no to show the latest messages from our IPB forum in our WordPress blog template.
I already published this on my norwegian blog so I figgured I’d do the english speaking world a favor and publish it here as well in case someone was searching for “Invision Power Board forum bridge” and found the norwegian language one ;-)
The script can be downloaded here.
It will output the latest X number of messages from the forum (with forum_id’s specified in the script) in the format: <li> titled link </li> – so throw some <ul>’s around the include in your template.
Here’s how we use it:
<h2><em>Latest in the forum</em></h2>
<?php include "../inc/ipb_last10.php"; ?>
Edit the script before you upload it to your server. It should be pretty self-explanatory, but if you run into any problems just write a comment on this entry.
