Problem with INNER JOIN

Hi all,
I have Two tables : "Users" & "UserLogs"
The table Users has all the common fields (ID, Name, Email, etc....)
The table UserLogs has: UserID, UserLogTypeID, CreatedDate.

The point is that if a user for example LogsOn to the website, the system will insert to the UserLogs Table this row:
UserID: 29 (just for the example)
UserLogTypeID: 1 (1 means "LogOn", 2 means "LogOff", etc......)
CreatedDate = now() / GatDate() / etc... :)

OK.
If I want to see what is the last time the user was logged on, I make this query:

SELECT     TOP (1) CreatedDate
FROM          UserLogs
WHERE      (UserLogTypeID = 1) AND (UserID=29)
ORDER BY CreatedDate DESC


Until here it's all good.

But, I want to pull all the users table and insert an extra field called LastLoggedOn.
I try to do this query but I get the results for only the last user and all the others are NULL:

SELECT     Users.ID, Users.Email,  Users.FirstName, Users.LastName, tblLastLogon.CreatedDate AS LastLogon
FROM         Users LEFT INNER JOIN
                          (SELECT     TOP (1) CreatedDate, UserID
                            FROM          UserLogs
                            WHERE      (UserLogTypeID = 1)
                            ORDER BY CreatedDate DESC) AS tblLastLogon ON Users.ID = tblLastLogon.UserID

Please tell me how to fix it.
Thanks

here we go:
SELECT     u.ID, u.Email,  u.FirstName, u.LastName, ul.CreatedDate AS LastLogon
FROM         Users u
LEFT OUTER JOIN  UserLogs ul
  ON ul.userid = u.id
 AND ul.createddate = ( SELECT MAX(i.creteddate) FROM UserLogs i WHERE i.UserID = u.ID )
