Default Latest entry in glossary?

Is it possible to use GAL to display the Latest Entry in the Glossary on a forum homepage? I used the following code (from this hack for the vBadvanced Links Directory) to show the latest link:

Code:
if ($forum['forumid'] == 'XX')
				{
				global $db; 
				$tot = $db->query_first("SELECT COUNT(*) as count FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "adv_links");
				$link = $db->query_first("SELECT linkid , name, posts, username, userid, dateline FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "adv_links ORDER BY linkid DESC");
				$date = vbdate($vbulletin->options['dateformat'], $link['dateline'], 1);
				$time = vbdate($vbulletin->options['timeformat'], $link['dateline']);		
				$forum['lastpostinfo'] = '<div align="left" class="smallfont"><strong><a href="/showcase/showlink.php?do=showdetails&l='.$link[linkid].'">'.$link[name].'</a></strong><br />by <a href="member.php?find=lastposter&f='.$link[userid].'">'.$link[username].'</a><br /><span style="float:right;">'.$date.' '.$time.' <a href="/showcase/showlink.php?do=showdetails&l='.$link[linkid].'"><img src="images/buttons/lastpost.gif" border="0" alt="View showcase"></a></span></div>';
				$forum['threadcount'] = $tot['count'];
				$forum['replycount'] = $link['posts'];				
				}
Here XX was replaced by the forumid I used. I'd like to do something similar with GAL but is it possible and, if so, how could it be achieved? The result would be a forum on the homepage that links directly to GAL (glossary.php) but shows the details of the latest entry in the "Last Post" column. Any ideas?

Custom coding really falls outside the realm of support and is not typically offered, especially for larger requests, but here is a query you could try to get the most recent entry in the gal database table:
Code:
# add your vB table prefix to the gal table name if you use a prefix
SELECT * FROM gal ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 1;

Thanks, Morgan. I'll give that a try.
