Is there any way I can know things like ...

(1) The latest posts,
(2) The total number of members,
(3) The Number of members online now etc ..


about G4EF using some kind of script or something ??

I need to know these without actually visiting go4expert.com.

Can anyone help me ? Can this be done ??

Latest post can be done by Feeds but not sure about others.

(1) The latest posts = Click on New Posts

(2) The total number of members = Members List (Total Members = 55294)

(3) The Number of members online now = Go to any forum, and see at the end...something like below

Yeah, even that can be done, but it's hacking not legal

then we will need to go through the code of G4EF you know what is called R&D ?

R&D : Research and Development ?

May be shabbir can kindly add some scripts for the purpose.
Well, I don't need info such as total members, members online etc.. as much as I need the latest posts and threads.

Can I get the latest post from feeds, I mean can I write some script that would read the latest post's title and it's url from G4EF Feeds ??
