need help with my plugin (bbPortal admin)

  • Well, I am trying to ad an adminpage to bbPortal. I am quite far, got the admin page, it checks the db for the table bb_portal and if it doesntexcsits, it creates the table.

    Also the form is working (the looks anyway), but how do I get the forum id from <?php forum_dropdown(); ?> cause it gives the name only. And I want it that when people select the forumname using this ddlb the forum id will be written to pforum_id when pressing submit.

    Sec problem; people can fill in a number for the Number of topics on the portal in an input field, but now comes the noob question:

    How the hell do I update this input to the db?

    This is my form for now:

    <form action="<?php echo $bb->domain. $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>" method="post">

    <?php do_action('portal_option_form_elements',''); ?>

    <h3><?php _e('Portal settings'); ?></h3>


    <tr><th scope="row"><?php _e('Where do you want to pull the topics from?'); ?></th>

    <td><?php forum_dropdown(); ?></td>


    <tr><th scope="row"><?php _e('Number of topics on the portal:'); ?></th>

    <td><input type="text" name="number-of-topics" id="number-of-topics" /></td>



    <p class="submit alignleft"><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit">


    And this is the table where the info must be put in:

    Table name: $bbdb->portal

    pforum_id int(10) NOT NULL,

    number_of_topics int(10) NOT NULL

    Hope you guys can help me :)
