Accessing Forum Data Outside of Vanilla
I'm new to Vanilla (less than a day of experience) so pardon my noobishness if it seems apparent. I've successfully integrated Drupal/Vanilla and now I want to start creating some Drupal blocks which display Vanilla data. For example, on my front page I want to display a list of the most popular discussions or most recent posts. If you aren't familiar with a Drupal block, its basically putting code inside of a "div" and Drupal places the div wherever you configure it...pretty simple. I'm guessing the block should contains stuff like: include settings.php, init_vanilla.php a DB query to access the data (or use the ObjectFactory to create a control or something?) display the data Is this all there is to it? Is there some kind of "template" out there that does what I am looking for?
