Notify a new post on another site page (Technics)

Hi all,

On the home page of the hosting site, a button leads to the MLF forum. I would like to have a notification appearing (for instance, "New!") if there is a new posting. Let's say, in the past two days.

So the question is : how can one programmatically detect that there is a new posting on the forum ?

I can think of three possibilities :

1) by looking at the forum home page. For instance, by extracting info from the "Latest postings" frame
2) by getting the info from the MLF database. But then, access must be granted to a third party.
3) by retrieving a certain predefined flag on the forum home page. This does probably not exist today.

What is the easiest way to get this info ?

Regards,
Jean-Michel
