I have an existing script. the script has a built-in forum & news system. I need the news system to be linked to forum threads.
i.e. when a message is posted in a specific forum specified by the administrator it should show on the news page.
the number of comments to the thread should also be shown similar to the screenshot attached to this project.
a few options are also needed as seen in the other screenshot.
if you need help w/ this unfamiliar script I am available to write PHP code or help you when needed.

please read the entire project description & at least install the script in  before bidding.
