Here is what I need to do:
1.Check the Creation DATE of the most recent node (article)
2. Create a view that lists all the nodes such that node.created = Creation DATE.
In other words, I want to be able to pass a variable date to the filtering criteria. I know I could construct it from scratch using 2 db_query calls but I am looking for a more intuitive way that does not require a lot of customization.
I have been trying to use hook_view_query_alter and add_where() but with not much success because I do not want to create a module just to do this.
Also, can I and/or is it wise to alter the view in the tpl.php template files.
Thanks in advance,
