Current Topics in an article

I created a block containing the latest posts.
The type of block is "Current Topics".
I would like to present the latest contributions in an article. Is this possible?

SMF 2.1.4
PHP 8.2.15

@rjen

You can create a php article and put you block code in it...

Thanks. I don't know it well. RockLee, who previously helped me, is no longer available.
In which file can I find the code for the "Current Topics" type?

@rjen

What?

You stated you have a block with code.

Please explain more clearly what you are trying to do? I am confused now

The code is not included in the block, but reference is made to the "Current Topics" block type. See Appendix.
The code is therefore not directly in the block, but in another place.
If I know where the code is, I can try to incorporate it into an article.

You cannot view this attachment.

There is no code in the block itself, I only selected the "Current Topics" type at the time.
It would be enough for me if I knew in which file the code for "Current Topics" is located.

@rjen

I'll give you some details later today. On my phone now

Calling

TPortal_recentbox();
in a PHP article results in an error:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 10
File: <base>/SSI.php
Line: 652

Using the recent article box as block renders without problems, so it's apparently not enough to just call the block's function from an article?

Looks like ssi_recentTopics is being called with some uninitialized vars here...?

If I call the PHP script in a devenv like so

require_once("C:/xampp/htdocs/SSI.php");

require_once("C:/xampp/htdocs/Themes/default/TPsubs.template.php");
require_once("C:/xampp/htdocs/Themes/default/languages/TPortal.german_informal.php");

TPortal_recentbox();

I get this

Did you initialise all the variables used inside that function? TinyPortal passes most of its information around in the $context['TPortal'] global. This is historic but quite embedded in the logic, the functions we supply were never intended to just be called. If you look in TPortal.php and TPBlocks.php you can see where they are initialised.
