Hey all,

I am trying to set up a section of my site that displays the latest updated posts.  Each post has a dtUpdated column in the database that gets a timestamp when changed.  When Im trying to look though the database, whats the best way to get the 5 most recent?  I think im supposed to ORDER by dtUpdated DESC, but was wondering what it would look like.

I need PostID's from tbl_posts that have the most recent updates.

Thanks for all your help!

You mean something like:

SELECT PostID FROM tbl_posts ORDER BY dtUpdated DESC LIMIT 5

Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
