    PHPbb3: how to show 10 newest posts

    In an effort to stamp out forum SPAM only members with 5 posts or more can post website links or email addresses
    ha ha that was helpful!

    Ok start again.

    I have two basic problems. Firstly I want to make my phpbb3 forum show all posts that are in any particular forum, At the moment you have to go through the rigmarole of selecting 'display active topics from last' (x amount of days weeks months etc) then hit the 'Go' button. I know this is turning people away as some who arenít familiar with the forum think that it's empty.

    Second problem is I want to add a mod that will display the last 5 or 10 posts from the forum onto say, the homepage of my site. Joomla has a mod (php latest topics module) I would like to install, but I have no idea how to use it.
