Good day.

I've been trying to edit the code so the LastPostInfo class will contain a String to hold the post's title. This is so that the Last Message column will be able to display the title of the last message.

Is there already a functionality for this?

Or do I still have to code it?

If I have to code it, supposedly I just edit the LastPostInfo class and FreeMarker will do all the wrapping processing right? I managed to edit the class, but the String title cannot be found by the script. If it existed, even if it was empty, it would return an empty string right? What happened here was that it was not able to find the String I added. I'm wondering if I missed out something, but as of now I don't have an idea... Any suggestions?

EDIT: Now that I think about it, seems that any changes I try to make do not take effect at all O_o Perhaps I'm missing out something when compiling? Because the files that I produce are of different sizes than what is available from the site...

The generated .class file size does not matter, as you may be using different compiler options / different compiler.
