I think I am posting this in the right area, forgive me if I didn't...
What's the difference between ssi_recentTopics and ssi_recentPosts? To me there is none.. I am using recentTopics in a PHP parse block, but it shows the latest topic with a new post, rather than whatever the latest topic really is regardless of the last post. In essence, someone could reply in a topic from 4 months ago, which makes it a "recent topic" on my front page again... Is there any way to work around this? Below is my block of code:
$array = ssi_recentTopics($num_recent = 5, $exclude_boards = null, $include_boards = 6, $output_method = 'array');
foreach ($array as $news)
<table border="0" width="100%" align="center" class="ssi_table">
<td><b>', $news['link'], '</b></td>
<td>By ', $news['poster']['link'], ' on ', $news['time'], '<br /><br /></td>
<hr width="100%" />
This is for a "recent classifieds" block on my site, the forum it pulls the recent topics from is a For Sale section, hence why I only want true new topics being shown. I'd also like some help on having this show a thumbnail of any attachment of the first post in that topic being shown (this may be a bit hard and not my primary concern right now).
