Hello,
I dont know how could I change this mysql code to show latest threads/post from only one forum category.
For example  I have 5 category on my forum, but I want to show latest threads/post from one category.

Where should I add cat id in this query (portal.php)?
$query = $db->query("
		SELECT t.tid, t.fid, t.uid, t.lastpost, t.lastposteruid, t.lastposter, t.subject, t.replies, t.views, u.username
		FROM ".TABLE_PREFIX."threads t
		LEFT JOIN ".TABLE_PREFIX."users u ON (u.uid=t.uid)
		WHERE 1=1 {$excludeforums}{$tunviewwhere} AND t.visible='1' AND t.closed NOT LIKE 'moved|%'
		ORDER BY t.lastpost DESC
		LIMIT 0, ".$mybb->settings['portal_showdiscussionsnum']
	);

Thanks for help!
Try this

$read_from_forum = " AND t.fid IN ('1','2','3','4','5')";
	$query = $db->query("
        SELECT t.*, t.tid, t.fid, t.uid, t.lastpost, t.lastposteruid, t.lastposter, t.subject, t.replies, t.views, u.username
        FROM ".TABLE_PREFIX."threads t
        LEFT JOIN ".TABLE_PREFIX."users u ON (u.uid=t.uid)
        WHERE 1=1 {$excludeforums}{$tunviewwhere}{$read_from_forum} AND t.visible='1' AND t.closed NOT LIKE 'moved|%'
        ORDER BY t.lastpost DESC
        LIMIT 0, ".$mybb->settings['portal_showdiscussionsnum']
    );


1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 adapt to your forum ID's. (not forum cat)
If you use my Latest Threads On Index plugin, you can select which forums threads are pulled from, but it is only for index. It might work for the portal with a couple edits.

Yeap, thanks its work as well!

Could you tell me how could I add thread "show" with only one prefix what i add in this forum?
I am not quite sure what you exactly, but try it with this variable

{$thread['threadprefix']}

in portal_latestthreads_thread Template and add this code on your portal.php

$thread['threadprefix'] = $threadprefix = '';
 if($thread['prefix'] != 0)
 {
 $threadprefix = build_prefixes($thread['prefix']);
 if(!empty($threadprefix))
 {
 $thread['threadprefix'] = $threadprefix['displaystyle'].' ';
 }
 }

after

while($thread = $db->fetch_array($query))
{


See screenshot
It doesn't work for me - when i add this {$thread['threadprefix']} then nothing displays ;/

Thats my portal_latestthreads_thread with added {$thread['threadprefix']}:

<tr>
<td class="{$altbg}">
{$thread['threadprefix']}
<strong><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/{$thread['threadlink']}">{$thread['subject']}</a></strong>
<span class="smalltext"><br />
{$lang->forum} <a href="{$thread['forumlink']}">{$thread['forumname']}</a><br />
<a href="{$thread['lastpostlink']}">{$lang->latest_threads_lastpost}</a> {$lastposterlink}<br />
{$lastpostdate}<br />
<strong>&raquo; </strong>{$lang->latest_threads_replies} {$thread['replies']}<br />
<strong>&raquo; </strong>{$lang->latest_threads_views} {$thread['views']}
</span>
</td>
</tr>

and my portal.php

while($thread = $db->fetch_array($query))
	{
        $thread['threadprefix'] = $threadprefix = '';
        if($thread['prefix'] != 0)
        {
            $threadprefix = build_prefixes($thread['prefix']);
            if(!empty($threadprefix))
            {
                $thread['threadprefix'] = $threadprefix['displaystyle'].'&nbsp;';
            }
        }
		$forumpermissions[$thread['fid']] = forum_permissions($thread['fid']);

		// Make sure we can view this thread
		if(isset($forumpermissions[$thread['fid']]['canonlyviewownthreads']) && $forumpermissions[$thread['fid']]['canonlyviewownthreads'] == 1 && $thread['uid'] != $mybb->user['uid'])
		{
			continue;
		}

		$lastpostdate = my_date('relative', $thread['lastpost']);
		$lastposter = htmlspecialchars_uni($thread['lastposter']);
		$thread['replies'] = my_number_format($thread['replies']);
		$thread['views'] = my_number_format($thread['views']);

		// Don't link to guest's profiles (they have no profile).
		if($thread['lastposteruid'] == 0)
		{
			$lastposterlink = $lastposter;
		}
		else
		{
			$lastposterlink = build_profile_link($lastposter, $thread['lastposteruid']);
		}
		if(my_strlen($thread['subject']) > 25)
		{
			$thread['subject'] = my_substr($thread['subject'], 0, 25) . "...";
		}
		$thread['subject'] = htmlspecialchars_uni($parser->parse_badwords($thread['subject']));
		$thread['threadlink'] = get_thread_link($thread['tid']);
		$thread['lastpostlink'] = get_thread_link($thread['tid'], 0, "lastpost");
		$thread['forumlink'] = get_forum_link($thread['fid']);
		$thread['forumname'] = $forum_cache[$thread['fid']]['name'];
		eval("\$threadlist .= \"".$templates->get("portal_latestthreads_thread")."\";");
		$altbg = alt_trow();
	}
	if($threadlist)
	{
		// Show the table only if there are threads
		eval("\$latestthreads = \"".$templates->get("portal_latestthreads")."\";");
	}
