Sorry, that was bum dope (I was thinking of categories hierarchy)...anyway.
You can use the function found in functions.php called get_db_stat. Something like this
Code: Select all
$total_posts = get_db_stat('postcount');
$total_users = get_db_stat('usercount');
$newest_userdata = get_db_stat('newestuser');
$newest_user = $newest_userdata['username'];
$newest_uid = $newest_userdata['user_id'];
Which will get you total_posts, total_users, newest_userdata, newest_user and newest_uid.
Delete the ones you don't want and parse the variables.
