Does anyone know the variable for the newest registered member?
I'm also in the need for this! Hopefully someone can help us Big Grin
$newestmember build_profile_link($mybb->user['username'], $mybb->user['uid'])

Just a guess.

That doesn't work if I put it into a template. What should I wrap the code in?
You will need a plugin to read the cache and build a ready-to-use variable for templates.

You will need x hook depending in where you want to show it.
function getNewestMember()
{
    global $db;
    $query = $db->query('SELECT uid FROM mybb_users ORDER BY uid DESC LIMIT 1');
    $query = $db->fetch_array( $query );
    return get_user( $query['uid'] );
}

$newest = getNewestMember();
echo $newest['username'];
I want to show on the footer..

Latest Member {$newest['username']}

or something.

What would be the correct code?
Try:

{$newestmember}

You don't need two queries since last user data is already in the stats cache.
No db queries at all Wink

Install plugin and add "newbiemember" (without quotes) to footer
