Fetch thread first post from threadlist?
#1
Is there a way to fetch thread first post message from thread list without generating a ton of queries?

I add t.firstpost it returns the first post pid.

But if hook to posts to get the message from pid that will generate 1 query per thread.

Any other solutions?

I seem to get it going but it fetches the last post I wanna first?


SOLVED!!!

In forumdisplay.php find:


// Start Getting Threads
	$query = $db->query("
		SELECT t.*, {$ratingadd}t.username AS threadusername, u.username
		FROM ".TABLE_PREFIX."threads t
		LEFT JOIN ".TABLE_PREFIX."users u ON (u.uid = t.uid)
		WHERE t.fid='$fid' $tuseronly $tvisibleonly $datecutsql2 $prefixsql2
		ORDER BY t.sticky DESC, {$t}{$sortfield} $sortordernow $sortfield2
		LIMIT $start, $perpage
	");

 Replace with:


// Start Getting Threads
	$query = $db->query("
		SELECT t.*, {$ratingadd}t.username AS threadusername, u.username, u.avatar, p.pid, p.message, p.tid
		FROM ".TABLE_PREFIX."threads t
		LEFT JOIN ".TABLE_PREFIX."users u ON (u.uid = t.uid)
		LEFT JOIN ".TABLE_PREFIX."posts p ON (p.tid=t.tid)
		WHERE t.firstpost=p.pid AND t.fid='$fid' $tuseronly $tvisibleonly $datecutsql2
		ORDER BY t.sticky DESC, {$t}{$sortfield} $sortordernow $sortfield2
		LIMIT $start, $perpage
	");

Then find:


$threadcache[$thread['tid']] = $thread;

Above add some similar:


$firstpost = $thread['message'];


Use $firstpost in forumdisplay_thread template Wink
