we have a website using Xoops 2.3.1 as our main CMS and CBB 3.08 for forums. We want a custom blocks that are the result of merging two existing blocks of the cbb 3.08 and some new abilities that want to be coded.
Atm in cbb 3.08 there are 2 blocks, last topics and last messages, we want this to be a unique block, apart from those, with a new name.
This new block must have 3 tabs and the selection of one dont make the page reload, one tab last messages, the other tab last topics and finally the third tab should show the last message from each forum the user can see (i mean permissions, not all the user can see all the forums).
We want the active tab update the new topics or messages from the database dinamically without reload (i mean active for not having a invisible tab making querys to the database... thats important). I mean with this you can see the, for example 5 last topic, and once a new topic is written to the database, with some effect (for example check this page for see what I am talking about [url removed, login to view]).
The block must have the ability to turn the ajax update on and off from the conf and to set the time for refresh (check for new topics/messages), And if the effect for the new topics/msg appearing could be choosen will be great :D
