installed with their IPB 3.4.x package, may have noticed an oddity with their View New Content page (something similar to the image below):

If you are experiencing this issue, it is caused by the aforementioned hook. You'll need to make one small edit and you'll be all set.

Navigate to: <Your IPB Root>/Hooks/tbGfSkinSearch_xxxxx.php

[*]The "xxxxx" substitutes the string of random characters attached to your file.
Find this line:
$data['last_poster'] = $data['last_poster_id'] ? IPSMember::makeProfileLink( TBGroupFormat::makeNameFormatted( $data, $data['last_poster_name'], $data['last_poster_group'], 'last_poster_id' ), $data['last_poster_id'], $data['seo_last_name'] ) : $this->settings['guest_name_pre'] . $data['last_poster_name'] . $this->settings['guest_name_suf'];
. and replace it with this:
/*$data['last_poster'] = $data['last_poster_id'] ? IPSMember::makeProfileLink( TBGroupFormat::makeNameFormatted( $data, $data['last_poster_name'], $data['last_poster_group'], 'last_poster_id' ), $data['last_poster_id'], $data['seo_last_name'] ) : $this->settings['guest_name_pre'] . $data['last_poster_name'] . $this->settings['guest_name_suf'];*/

Save your edit, and refresh your page -- fixed!

I strongly recommend downloading a copy of the file, making the edit, and then re-uploading it to avoid any issues with the upload. Editing the file inside of FTP programs such as Filezilla is not always efficient.

Wrong section buddy. But nice tutorial (if it works).

This sectiom is for XenForo and has nothing to do with IPB haha, doesn't matter, a moderator and/or an administrator will move it for you.

But nice and useful topic you have.
