I would like to pull thread data from my Invision Power Board forum software to display the first post in a thread as news on the frontpage of my site. So only a certain amount of characters will display and the user will have to click read more to read the whole post. Then the replies in the thread will show as comments in the news story. I want the avatars and post dates of the members to show up on this page. Then when someone tries to reply it should direct them to the forums.
There are more details but this is sufficient to start negotiations for this project.
