Trying to add post previews on front page

I am using this mod to add a list of the most recently posted threads at my forum ebeaver.

I am trying to add a preview of the thread's first post under the given titles, but I am having a hard time figuring out how to query? this out of vbulletin.

<td class="alt2">
<vb:if condition="$getposts_thread[newpost]">
<a href="showthread.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}goto=newpost&amp;t={vb:raw getposts_thread.threadid}" id="thread_gotonew_{vb:raw getposts_thread.realthreadid}"><img class="inlineimg" src="images/statusicon/post_new.gif" alt="{vb:rawphrase go_to_first_new_post}" border="0" /></a></vb:if>
{vb:raw getposts_thread.prefix_rich}
<a href="showthread.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}t={vb:raw getposts_thread.threadid}{vb:raw getposts_thread.highlight}" id="thread_title_{vb:raw getposts_thread.realthreadid}"<vb:if condition="$getposts_thread[newpost]"> style="font-weight:bold"</vb:if> title="{vb:raw getposts_thread.titletrimmed}">{vb:raw getposts_thread.titletrimmed}</a>

<div style="clear:both; border:1px dashed #c4c4c4; padding:10px; margin:10px 5px 5px 5px; background-color:#fefdf2;">
{vb:raw getposts_thread.pagetext}

<td align="center" class="alt1"><a href="forumdisplay.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}f={vb:raw getposts_thread.forumid}">{vb:raw getposts_thread.forumtitle}</a>
<td class="alt2" align="center">
{vb:raw getposts_thread.lastpostdate}
<vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']">
{vb:raw getposts_thread.lastposttime}</vb:if>
<td class="alt1" align="center">
<a href="misc.php?do=whoposted&amp;t={vb:raw getposts_thread.threadid}" onclick="who({vb:raw getposts_thread.threadid}); return false;">
{vb:raw getposts_thread.replycount}</a>
<td class="alt2" align="center">
{vb:raw getposts_thread.views}
The bold div is in the right place to put the preview where I want, the part that I have no idea about is the {vb:raw getposts_thread.pagetext} I have also tried {vb:raw post.pagetext}

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
