    Hello,

    I'm updating my Similar Threads add-on and need some help in figuring out how to create a link to the last post username.

    Here's screen print of what I currently have, the last post username is currently just text.

    The code that XenForo uses for this type of template looks like this, but I would like to avoid using $thread.lastPostInfo if possible.

    Code:
    <dt><xen:if is="{xen:helper isIgnored, $thread.last_post_user_id}">{xen:phrase ignored_member}<xen:else /><xen:username user="$thread.lastPostInfo" /></xen:if></dt>
    
    I currently have this in my template.

    Code:
    <dt>{$thread.last_post_username}</dt>
    
    What I would like to have is this, but when I try to save the template it comes back as an error and won't allow me to save it:

    Code:
    <dt><a href="{xen:link 'members', '', '/{$thread.last_post_user_id}/'}">{$thread.last_post_username}</a></dt>
    
    Thank you for your help.

    That's the proper way of doing it. Don't avoid it.

    The solution you'd like to work is ghastly.
