I would love to see this Add-on as well. We have a paid membership forum and most forums are private. This modification would show visitors how active the forum is without giving them access to the forum. Has there been any thought about adding this functionality?
I would also like to see this functionality added for Xenforo. As a paid membership based forum, this simple feature would show visitors how active our boards are without actually allowing them to see the boards. Is there any talk on adding this?
