    I am trying to find the code for the last poster in a thread or message - see image where the arrow is pointing.


    This doesn't seem to work, am i missing something? {xen:username user="$boardTotals.latestUser" />

    Look in the node_forum_level_2 template.

    What code do I use?

    <xen:hook name="node_forum_level_2_before_lastpost" params="{xen:array 'forum={$forum}'}" />
            <div class="nodeLastPost secondaryContent">
                <xen:if is="{$forum.privateInfo}">
                    <span class="noMessages muted">({xen:phrase private})</span>
                <xen:elseif is="{$forum.lastPost.date}" />
                    <span class="lastThreadTitle"><span>{xen:phrase latest}:</span> <a href="{xen:link posts, $forum.lastPost}" title="{$forum.lastPost.title}">{$forum.lastPost.title}</a></span>
                    <span class="lastThreadMeta">
                        <span class="lastThreadUser"><xen:if is="{xen:helper isIgnored, $forum.last_post_user_id}">{xen:phrase ignored_member}<xen:else /><xen:username user="$forum.lastPost" /></xen:if>,</span>
                        <xen:datetime time="$forum.lastPost.date" class="muted lastThreadDate" data-latest="{xen:phrase latest}: " />
                <xen:else />
    It needs to be added here:

    div class="meta">
                {xen:phrase post_by}: <xen:username user="$post" />, <xen:datetime time="{$post.post_date}" />, {xen:phrase x_replies, 'count={xen:number $thread.reply_count}'}, {xen:phrase views} {$thread.view_count},
                {xen:phrase in_forum}: <a href="{xen:link forums, $forum}">{$forum.title}</a>

    Why will this not give me last poster info?

    {xen:phrase last_post}: <xen:username user="$forum.lastPost" /> it just gives me Last Post:

    If you do {xen:helper 'dump', $forum} what do you get?

    Do I add it to the code, by itself?

    no, just made a bunch of goobly code on site, with just {xen:helper 'dump', $forum} by itself and like this:

    {xen:helper 'dump', $forum}: <xen:username user="$forum.lastPost" />

    What was the output? It'll tell you what is available in the $forum variable.

    Here is what I get , just to be clear, all I want is who posted last in any particular post to show in the search results along with views and replies.

    The data you want is not available and will require an addon to fetch it.
