    The 5 last edited pages in a list Link to this post


    First I want to say sorry for my bad English...

    I'm using silverstripe for a few days, and I like it.
    I'm using the pixelgreen theme.
    I'd like to show the last edited pages in the sidebar.
    I have found in my database that I need to use the SiteTree table.
    My php knowledge is not so good. I am able to make contact with my database, and select the right table.

    I'm searching for a script that gets the last 5 edits from my table, and that organizes these 5 edits.

    Thanks a lot

    Hi LEDfan,

    This post may help...

    In silverstripe a DataObjectSet is parsable easily on the template and instead of using the mysql_connect functions this provides a slightly higher level to getting the data and formatting it. I am sure there is a way to do this using entriely DataObject::Get - but I'll just offer this to help you now.
