It was done on this site, how does one accomplish this?

There is column with the posters name instead of it being underneath the thread title.

That was a feature in the Perl version of UBB many years ago. Many good things were lost in Threads from the Perl version.

Well, yarp modded his forum, plain and simple. He hacked at the postlist template, added a new cell, and copied the data he wanted to the cell.

The last perl version was UBB.Classic 6.7.3. I think it was released in 2005. There were a lot of us that moved over from that. It is not compatible with what you have now.

As Gizzy said, it is a mod. I don't think it would be that difficult to do. Post something on ubbdev about it.

thanks man that worked!!!

No I just have to get rid of the "by" word and then center the poster names, maybe center the "posted" text as well.

I assume I will need to add CSS to this in someway?

And since we came from the Perl version we still hack around a bit to get some of the old stuff we liked.

Yeah I like how you hacked it to make it look more like the classic version 6 which I prefer. I'm making a few hacks to mine as well but I wish you could just share your postlist.tpl with me or the board for people who like version 6 better. I personally don't know PHP. I think I will share mine when its all said and done.
