Recent threads on external page. Problem

I have pieced together this code for my site from various threads around here. It displays the latest x number of threads from a forum on an external page. The one problem that I have is that the $threadUrl portion is not working.

$forumUrl = 'http://www.mysite.com/'; //Forum URL, must end with slash
$limit = 10; // Display this number of last posts
$node = 9;
$node2 = 2;
$forumDirectory = realpath(__DIR__.'/'); // Full path to forum folder
if(!$forumDirectory) {
    die('$forumDirectory is incorrect!');

$startTime = microtime(true);

require($forumDirectory. '/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php');
XenForo_Autoloader::getInstance()->setupAutoloader($forumDirectory . '/library');

// Initializing application
XenForo_Application::initialize($forumDirectory . '/library', $forumDirectory);
XenForo_Application::set('page_start_time', $startTime);

// Loading dependencies
$xfDependencies = new XenForo_Dependencies_Public();

// Initializing session

// Reading viewable nodes list
$nodeModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Node');
$viewableNodes = $nodeModel->getViewableNodeList();
$nodeIds = array_keys($viewableNodes);
$nodeIdsList = implode($nodeIds, ',');

// Requesting last N viewable nodes
        $sql_forum = "SELECT * FROM `xf_thread` WHERE `node_id` = $node AND discussion_state='visible' ORDER BY `last_post_date` DESC LIMIT $limit";
        $lastThreads = XenForo_Application::get('db')->fetchAll($sql_forum);

// Here you can insert the code you want

        // Displaying content
        foreach ($lastThreads as $thread) {
            $postModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Post');
            $post = $postModel->getPostById($thread['first_post_id']);
            $bbCodeParser = new XenForo_BbCode_Parser(new XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Wysiwyg);
            $bbCodeOptions = array(
                'showSignature' => false,
                'states' => array(
                    'viewAttachments' => false
            $threadTitle = $thread['title'];
            $threadDate =  date("d.m.y", $thread['post_date']);
            $author = $thread['username'];
            $threadUrl = XenForo_Application::get('options')->boardUrl . '/' . XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('threads', $thread);
            $message = XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Message::getBbCodeWrapper($post, $bbCodeParser, $bbCodeOptions);
        echo "
            <a href=\"$theadUrl\">{$threadTitle}</a>
            <br /><br />

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Well-known member
Have you tried changing the last echo statement to single quotes so the $threadUrl is not evaluated?

Notice your misspelling of $threadUrl?
