Add-On Type(s)



Get the last entry date from one or more weblogs


{exp:last_entry weblogs=‘news|blogs|videos’ format=’%Y-%m-%d’}

This would search through the news, blogs and videos weblogs and find the date of the latest entry. This could output 2010-01-18 for instance. The format parameter decides the date format and works the usual way. It only uses one SQL query so I would imagine that it’s faster than the alternative (that would be to use the {exp:weblog:entries} tag).

It can also be used in other tags like this:

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="{my_weblog}" start_on="{exp:last_entry weblogs='news|blogs|videos'
format='%Y-%m-%d'} 12:01 AM" stop_before="{exp:last_entry
weblogs='news|blogs|videos' format='%Y-%m-%d'} 11:59 PM"  
parse="inward" }

Note it would probably be better to use embed here to only run the last_entry query once, this is just for example purposes.
