  • Question about getting the last page

    Lets say someone post a reply in a thread. That reply is number 12 (but that doesn't matter).

    Is it possible for me as a user to view the latest entry using only the thread url? (someone using showpost.php?)


    Is it possible to append some sort of php command so I ONLY get the latest post in that thread?

    edit: and unlike this site, this forum does not give you the forum id (t=249239) it links you to a html page.... which might be a problem.

    Yeah, you can link to anchored posts from a thread. Even with pagination. But pagination can't assume the per/page count each individual might have. Page 2 for you might be page 5 for me.

      How do I do that? Dont forgot, this is not my forum... I just want to view the last page as a end user.

      Also I do not want to get the link, I want it created automatically (basically I will have a filter that automatically appends "last post" link to every thread link in the forum)

          Right now I could easilly do this by simple filtering out all post in the pages execpt the last page... but that would make using all vBulletin pages very messy...

          Can you at least tell me if doing this as a user is possible in the URL?

          edit: And how about if I do have the showthread.php?t=, can you give me that information?

          I am just asking for a simple command, I didn't think it would be a issue
