Using Topic ID as variable

Unread post by bilaai_b » Sat Aug 10, 2019 7:19 am

Is there a way to show the Topic ID (found in Topic Options screen) on the help page?

I've tried it by using the global predefined variable <%TOPICMETA:NAME%> and change NAME to TOPIC ID but the result is just blank space :cry: . Am I using <%TOPICMETA:NAME%> incorrectly and if this is the case how can I use it correctly to show the Topic ID?

Thanks and regards.

Hi,

Just enter <%TOPICID%> in your topic text.

The ones you are using are for use in the HTML page templates, not topic text. The one above works for both.

cheers,

Martin.
