Get the latest page updated

Hello,

I’m working on a site where I want to highlight the latest page updated in various sections (each in a folder). What would be the best way of doing this (and can it be done)?

I was thinking of using perch_content_custom with the field set as pageModified. However it doesn’t work so I’m assuming the field must exist in the region. Is there a way to sort by the modified date of the page?

The other idea I had would be to run a SQL query on pageModified and then send the pagePath to perch_content_custom. Would that be the best way to do it?

Thanks

Nick

There's currently no supported way to do that. If you chose to query the database directly, I couldn't provide any guarantee that it would keep working across updates.

Thanks Drew, is it the sort of thing I might be able to do using the API or would that still have the potential to be broken by an update?

The API doesn't provide access to that information, no.
