Does anyone know of a way to get the latest fourm posts to display on the homepage? I have tryed several ways, but I can only get the last post. If I try to get more then the last post, I get a memory error. (Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 28049408) (tried to allocate 4864 bytes)...)

Here is some of the code I have been working with:

	function LatestPosts() {
		//$this->content = DataObject::get('Post', '', 'Created DESC', '', (int)$limit);
		//return $this->RecentPosts(5);	
		//return "error";
		//return DataObject::get('Post', '', 'Created DESC', '', (int)$limit); 	                    
        //return DataObject::get("Post", "", "Created DESC", "", 0,5);
			$posts = DataObject::get("Post", "", "Created DESC", "" , "1");
			if($posts){
				return $posts;
			}
			else{
				return null;
			}		
	}	

**UPDATE**
I got it working with this code

			$posts = DataObject::get("Post", "Content != ''", "Created DESC", "" , "5");
			if($posts){
				return $posts;
			}
			else{
				return null;
			}
