Most recent post open on the main page. Possible?

edited December 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi all, I recently had a database blowout with Wordpress, and by that I mean I completely destroyed my db for no good reason and I'm annoyed about it. Anyway, when my WP site went down I was left with a dead site at and since I had a copy of Vanilla installed in another dir for testing I just moved it up front and there it sits. Having played around with it, I'm very impressed and will be more impressed if there is a way to do the following; What I'm looking for is a way to have the most recent post open on the main page such that when you visit you can instantly read the most recent post there in front of you, and have the other posts listed normally by subject line underneath. Is that do-able at all? Somehow I doubt it, but if it's at all possible Vanilla will be something more than a forum, it will make a terrific blog. :) Any help or suggestions appreciated. datter


  • Thanks, I *just* found that... hope it arrives soon. :)
  • You could do it yourself with a bit of php coding and just querying the database. Whether it'd be easier to do that or make an extension i'm not sure, though.
  • If you have a way to show the first entry from an RSS feed on your front page, it would be pretty easy.
