List recent XenForo threads w/excerpt in a WP widget?

Two approaches I can think of:

1) Write some PHP code (as a WP widget) to query the latest threads from the XF database.

2) Use javascript to output the contents of XF's global feed. See this post:

http://xenforo.com/community/threads/display-recent-activity-elsewhere.8621/#post-118918

But the global feed only contains thread titles, no excerpts. Here is an addon for a global feed (from before XF had its own global feed) which includes excerpts:

So, I had the client download it and send it my way. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Here's my issue and maybe someone can give me a hand.

It seems the forum RSS feed only pulls the pubdate and not the date/time the thread was last updated, is that correct?

If so, how can I pull that info so I can use it?

For example, here is my clients forum RSS feed: http://www.diablo3builds.com/forum/forums/-/index.rss

Notice all the dates are either Mon, 05 Mar 2012 19:24:01 +0000 or Mon, 05 Mar 2012 18:18:11 +0000 ...which is incorrect. Why is that?

This is not the correct forum for support.

You will need to speak to your client to add you to their account so you can access the customer forums.

I have closed this thread, feel free to post on the add-on thread once you have access.
