Author(s): Dave_L (Dave Lerner)

Files Altered: admin/menu.php (optional)
New Files: admin/checklastpost.php
Database Altered: yes (modifies some columns in Boards table)
This addon script will allow you to check and update the last post data displayed on the main index page.
It was based on Dave Lozier's Check Post Count addon script, updated by Olle Johansson.
One thing this hack will do is fix the problem of missing forums on the main index page due to Bo_Posterid or Bo_LastNumber not being set properly, which can occur when importing from UBB.classic, or when deleting posts.
Like JustDave's Check Post Count hack, you can use this hack without "installing" it. You can just run the script without adding a link to the Admin menu.
