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

I can get te last edited pages out my database.
But new i need to put it in the sidebar, how do i do that?

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","NAME","PASS");
if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("robots4funbe_cms", $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM SiteTree WHERE ID >'10' ORDER BY Created ASC LIMIT 0, 5");

echo "<table border='1'>

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
echo "<tr><td>" . $row['ID'];"</td>";
echo "<td>" . $row['Created'];"</td>";
echo "<td>" . $row['Title'];"</td></tr>";


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.
