Excellent Hook and very useful!

Could you create a similar hook for blogs?

A hook that will show the latest discussions on main blog board.

This hook will

build a list that contains the latest 20-25 comments in blogs
Not a list for each blog, a list with the public blogs that have a new comment, in a chronological order.
The list should contain the username of the user that wrote the comment, the title of the blog where the comment was written and date & time that the comment was written.

For example:
"Username1" wrote a comment in "blog's name1" at 2.30am, 24-10-2009
"Username2" wrote a comment in "blog's name2" at 2.45am, 24-10-2009
"Username1" wrote a comment in "blog's name3" at 2.47am, 24-10-2009
"Username3" wrote a comment in "blog's name1" at 2.48am, 24-10-2009

What exactly do you mean with "restrict" setting?

My settings are:

Number of topics: 6
Show distinct topics?: Yes
Show number of views?: No
Show number of replies?: No
Show forum name?: No

And only a small group of people can see the block.

Btw: Could it be that the hook only shows discussions when there is at least one answer in the topic? I guess this could be the reason for not showing new topics.

I just noticed actually on Vodafone NZ's forum that the hook title is "Lastest Discussions" - seems misspelled ;)

(Also, "<if test="is_array( Array ) && count( Array )">" appears in the source.

How do you fix the misspelling of Lastest to Latest?

From what I understand, this hook is suppose to only show the most recent replies from those topics that you chose in the settings. I don't think it's suppose to show the most recent topics that were started. However, I agree that it should show it, since it also falls in the replies category. If I was to start a topic, but it was not included in the hook, I would have to go back again and post right after that. Only then would it show on this hook and out onto the forums. So having it include the first post from a topic being started, would be a good idea. Anybody know if there's been a most recent update for this hook? I upgraded to IP.Board v3.1.1 and using (SOS30) Latest Discussions v1.0.2
Thanks in advance.
