Before I switched to FUD, I was using phpBB, and I had a "News Feed" on the main page of my site, which took the 5 most recently made threads in a particular board. From those 5 threads it took the first post of each, showed the title, the post, and how many responses had been made to it.

I would like to do the same with FUD, but I really have no idea where to start.

I wrestled with it for months, the RDF feed just won't do it :/
It's easier just to use another system for your news.

The RDF Feed thinger will grab the most recent posts but that includes replies.

I've always not cared for this. I would rather distinguish a new topic from its replies so that a popular title doesn't fill up the max slots in a "latest topics" listing. That and the fact that rdf seems to include topics in non-public forums as well as restricted I find very irritating.

maybe half a solution - I posted this a few days in the (previously) most recently updated thread in this section:
http://fudforum.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=7701&start=0#msg_num_6

It'll post the most recent messages in a forum/category, and ignore subsequent messages from the same thread. Kinda the reverse of what you want - but it could be something worth looking further into - such as using the RDF to pull mode t to just get topics, then loop and count the number of messages in that topic.

Regards,
PG

Perhaps you are looking for something like this:
http://www.ginnunga.org/forums/index.php?t=thread&frm_id=118

What I did was to add simple IF statements in the templates. In this case my code (you cant really use this, but it can give you a hint) looks like this:

Thread.tmpl -> thread_list and replace
{TEMPLATE-DATA: thread_list_table_data}

with
{IF: ($frm->id == 118)} <!-- IF NEWS -->
<tr><td style=""><img src="{THEME_IMAGE_ROOT}/news2.png" alt="News" align="left"><hr style="position: relative; left: -18px;top: 18px;border: 0px;border-bottom:1px dotted #aaaaaa;height: 1px;"><span style="font-size: 15pt; color: #660000;position: relative;top: -12px;">&nbsp;Ginnunga news&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></td></tr>
{TEMPLATE-DATA: thread_list_news_data}
{ELSE}
{IF: ($frm->id == 124)} <!-- IF DOWNLOADS -->
<tr><td style=""><img src="{THEME_IMAGE_ROOT}/news2.png" alt="News" align="left"><hr style="position: relative; left: -18px;top: 18px;border: 0px;border-bottom:1px dotted #aaaaaa;height: 1px;"><span style="font-size: 15pt; color: #660000;position: relative;top: -12px;">&nbsp;Ginnunga Downloads&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></td></tr>
{TEMPLATE-DATA: thread_list_downloads_data}
{ELSE} <!-- REGULAR FORUM -->
{TEMPLATE-DATA: thread_list_table_data}
{END}{END}


I also edited thread.php.t and after this line
	$thread_list_table_data .= '{TEMPLATE: thread_row}';

added this:
			$thread_list_news_data .= '{TEMPLATE: thread_news}';
			$thread_list_downloads_data .= '{TEMPLATE: thread_downloads}';


Then I just went ahead and created subsections in thread.tmpl which were copies of thread_list and just renamed them to thread_downloads and thread_news and modified them to fit my needs.

Replies are excluded in topics mode (mode=t). As a result you can use any aggregator program to show your news or quickly roll your own.

Yet another solution would be to use FUDAPI. See example at http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/FUDAPI
