  • Latest X amount of threads based on last post date?

    By default the current version of external.php will only show the last 15 new threads; if somebody replies to an older message then that thread will not be included in the output since the thread creation date is older than the 15 newest threads.

    What code would I use to get it to be included in the output?
    To be more specific when an old thread is replied to it is bumped to the top. How do I get that old thread to be included in the output. All I want is the thread links and thread titles. Then I want to include it on an html page on a seperate server.

    phpBB used to have a mod called Last X amount of posts and you could display the thread title links to them on an html page. If I recall I did this via php include. Wondering if I could duplicate this on the latest version of VBulletin? It's looking like the php include is not an option but I'm unable to find a java script coding way. I seen all the stuff I found in searches but those were just for the latest 15 threads based on creation date.

    It appears you can change the sort by adding &lastpost=1 to the location.

      Can you please be more specific?

      Where exactly do we add "&lastpost=1" in order to make it work based on last post date the way buttknocker described?

        For example:

        <script type="text/javascript" src="external.php?type=js&lastpost=1"></script> 
        <script language="" type="text/javascript">
        for (var x in threads)
        document.writeln("<a href=\"showthread.php?t="+threads[x].threadid+"\">"+threads[x].title+"</a> (Posted By: "+threads[x].poster+")<br />");

            I don't think the post contents are available to the feeds, though I am not sure.
