As you can imagine i am not a natural coder but like to give things ago an appreciate any help or pointers. Pretty sure i am nowhere near with above but hey am

    This is going to depend on where you're trying to do it. If it's in the threadbit templates then really the only easy option is to display the preview text: {vb:raw thread.preview} usually.

    Beyond that you need a query because the data you need isn't available in the threadbit templates.

    This is outside the scope of the support we can provide here so is the best place.
