    Hello, how make a query for get à 5 last thread please ?

    I have that:
    $whereConditions = array('id' => '1,2');
    $fetchOptions = array('limit' => 3'orderBy' => 'title desc');
    $threads $sujets->getThreads($whereConditions$fetchOptions);
    But only 'limit' worked.

    xenforo function used (in Model/Thread.php) :
        * Gets threads that match the given conditions.
        * @param array $conditions Conditions to apply to the fetching
        * @param array $fetchOptions Collection of options that relate to fetching
        * @return array Format: [thread id] => info
    public function getThreads(array $conditions, array $fetchOptions = array())
    $whereConditions $this->prepareThreadConditions($conditions$fetchOptions);
    $sqlClauses $this->prepareThreadFetchOptions($fetchOptions);
    $limitOptions $this->prepareLimitFetchOptions($fetchOptions);
    $forceIndex = (!empty($fetchOptions['forceThreadIndex']) ? 'FORCE INDEX (' $fetchOptions['forceThreadIndex'] . ')' '');
                    SELECT thread.*
    $sqlClauses['selectFields'] . '
                    FROM xf_thread AS thread ' 
    $forceIndex '
    $sqlClauses['joinTables'] . '
                    WHERE ' 
    $whereConditions '
    $sqlClauses['orderClause'] . '
    $limitOptions['limit'], $limitOptions['offset']

    $conditions['id'] is not a valid condition.

    If you check out XenForo_Model_Thread::prepareThreadConditions you will see it's looking for $conditions['node_id']... or indeed other types of ID.

    Also if you check out public function prepareThreadFetchOptions you will see there is no "orderBy" index. It's looking for $fetchOptions['order'] (title) and $fetchOptions['orderDirection'] (desc)

    Finally, you asked for the last 5 threads... your code if it was correct would get you the last 3 threads in forums 1 and 2 arranged by the title, descending.

    So... to do what you asked for...

    $sujets XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Thread');
    $whereConditions = array('node_id' => '1,2');

    $fetchOptions = array('limit' => 5'order' => 'post_date''orderDirection' => 'desc');
    $threads $sujets->getThreads($whereConditions$fetchOptions);
    That should work to get the last 5 threads in node 1 and 2 in descending post date order.
    Jake Bunce and Zephyr like this.

    Thank you for the very detailed explanation :)

    I started in OOP and I saw that I could use on my website easily XenForo So I try to understand its Mechanisms :)

    Oh yes also, I have this:

    // thread info (associative array)
    echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads'$thread); // thread URL
    echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads/add-reply'$thread); // add reply URL
    Are there other similar code very useful to know please ? :)
