            jQuery(node).closest('.forumline').hide();
            break;
 
          case 'DIV' : // phpbb3, punbb, invision
            jQuery(node).closest('.module').hide();

  }
}());
// par ange tuteur
//]]></script>
Question Example

When everything is setup correctly make sure to click "save" and drag the completed widget into the column you want it to show. After that the widget will show up while you're viewing a topic if there are any topics similar to it.

Notes


1. The widget will only show up while viewing topics and if there are any topics similar to it, otherwise it will remain hidden.
2. The topics are found by performing a search of the topic title keywords, and show the most recently updated topics.
3. By default 5 ( or less than 5 ) similar topics are displayed. You can change this by finding
Code:
amount = 5
and changing the "5" to any number you want.

If there are any problems or questions feel free to leave a response below. Enjoy ! Thumb right

I see what you mean. It's possible, however it'll require an unnecessary amount of AJAX to get the images for each topic. As for the template, I'm not sure why it isn't working. I'll have to look into it. reflect

I notice that the topic you are viewing is included in the similar topics widget.  Is there a way to stop that?

I didn't think about that !

Try replacing your widget with this updated one to see if it fixes that problem :
Code:
<style type="text/css">
#fa_topics_similar a {
  font-size:10px;
  font-weight:normal;
  display:block;
  padding:3px; 0;
}
 
#fa_topics_similar a b {
  font-weight:normal;
}
 
#fa_ts_more {
  text-align:center;
  font-weight:bold;
  margin-top:3px;
}
</style>
<div id="fa_topics_similar"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[
(function() {
  var amount = 5,
      lang = {
        see_more : 'View all similar topics',
        loading : 'Finding similar topics...',
        error_node : '<code>#fa_topics_similar</code> is null',
        error_version : 'Forum version could not be identified'
      },
   
      url = '/search?search_keywords=',
      node = document.getElementById('fa_topics_similar'),
      temp = document.createElement('DIV'),
      topics,
   
      hideModule = function(node) {
        switch (node.parentNode.tagName) {
          case 'TD' : // phpbb2
            jQuery(node).closest('.forumline').hide();
            break;
     
          case 'DIV' : // phpbb3, punbb, invision
            jQuery(node).closest('.module').hide();
            break;
     
          default :
            document.write('<p style="color:#F30;font-size:12px;">' + lang.error_version + '<p>');
            break;
        }
      };
   
  if (/\/t\d+/.test(window.location.href) && node) {
    url += encodeURIComponent(document.title.replace(/(.*?)(?:\s-\s.*)/, function(M, S) { return S }));
    node.innerHTML = lang.loading;
 
    jQuery.get(url + '&change_version=prosilver', function(d) {
      topics = jQuery('a.topictitle:lt(' + amount + ')', d);
      node.innerHTML = '';
   
      if (topics[0]) {
     
        for (var i = 0, j = topics.length; i < j; i++) {
          if (!new RegExp(window.location.href.replace(/[.*+?^${}()|[\]\\]/g, "\\$&")).test(topics[i].href)) {
            topics[i].href = topics[i].href.replace(/\?.*/, '');
            jQuery('.coloradmin', topics[i]).removeAttr('style class');
            temp.appendChild(topics[i]);
          }
        }
     
        node.appendChild(temp);     
      } else {
        hideModule(node);
      }
    });
    document.write('<div id="fa_ts_more"><a href="' + url + '">' + lang.see_more + '</a></div>');
  } else if (node) {
    hideModule(node);
  } else {
    document.write('<p style="color:#F30;font-size:12px;">' + lang.error_node + '<p>');
