What I am trying to do is to get the last 5 forum topics, and the first 80characters of their topic text.

      <% if InSection(home) %>
       <div id="last_topics">
         <!-- get last topics-->
   <% if LatestPosts %>
            <% control LatestPosts(5) %>
                  <h2>Latest Questions</h2>
            <% end_control %>
         <% else %>
            <h2>No Latest Questions</h2>
            <h3>No Title</h3>
            <p>No content</p>
         <% end_if %>
      <% end_if %>

I'm guessing something like that, but that code doesn't work.


I got it working, now I'm trying to take out the bbcode, or parse it.

I was working with this code to try to get it to parse.

      $this->content = DataObject::get('Post', '', 'Created DESC', '', (int)$limit);
      $this->content = (string)$this->content;
      $parser = new SSHTMLBBCodeParser();
      echo $parser->getParsed();

Found what I needed here. Parse the code in the .ss file :)
