Default Displaying first Attachment

Hi everyone, hope you guys are well,

I have recently bought GARS and I tried to make a little addon for it, however, no matter what I do, I can't get to display it.

Basically I'm trying to display the first attachment of the first post only, however, the addon that I have got seems to work in vb's default showthread template, but it does not work in any of GARS templates,

PHP Code:
# First Attachment of the First Post
$firstattach $db->query_read("
        SELECT attachmentid, dateline, postid FROM " 
TABLE_PREFIX "attachment 
        WHERE postid=$FIRSTPOSTID
        ORDER BY attachmentid ASC 
        LIMIT 1
$row $db->fetch_array($firstattach))
$att "<img src='attachment.php?$session[sessionurl]attachmentid=$attachid&amp;d=$attachdateline' border='0'>";

'$tested .= "' fetch_template('tested') . '";');
I added the code above as a plugin in vbulletin, under the hook location "showthread_complete".

then I put $tested in my GARS_pb, however, nothing shows up and sometimes I just see "null", but when I put $tested in a SHOWTHREAD template, it seems to show up just fine,

Any kind of help would be appreciated.

Thats because the postbits will have been constructed by the time showthread_completed gets called. If you want to do that in a postbit (i.e. GARS_pb or postbit) then you will want to call it in postbit_completed (or slightly earlier).
