Heres a snippet I use to get the last 5 posts from phpBB to display in my side bar

<?php
require_once('/path/to/forum/config.php');

$link = mysql_connect($dbhost,$dbuser,$dbpasswd);
mysql_select_db($dbname, $link);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `phpbb_posts` ORDER BY `post_id` DESC LIMIT 5", $link);


while($r = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
    echo "<a href=\"http://www.domain.tld/forum/viewtopic.php?p=" . $r['post_id'] . "\">" . $r['post_subject'] . "</a><br />";
}

?>

actually with a few changes obviously it works...but...its pulling up the subjects of the post but when i click on a subject it takes me to the error page that says the post doesnt exists....what could be possibly wrong?

This is a great script and I've managed to get as far as Vanity above. But when I click on one of the post links it takes me to a page not found. I'm guessing its the last domain link in the script that I need to change, only I don't know what to.

Any suggestions? Does this need to be a path relative to somewhere on my forum?

Is there a way were we can only display posts from a specific forum, E.G. if i wanted to use it to display NOTAMs, so i would have a specific forum/thread for NOTAMs?
