Unmaintained WordPress get the Lastest Forum Posts 1.4.0

No permission to download
Hello All
Display the lastest forum posts in a wordpress widget. After installing the widget you will be able to display the latest forum posts in a widget.

Multiple options:
modify the css, use PDO or SQL database connection, custom table title, exclude certain nodes, exclude usergroups, and more.

The widget output can be modified to your specific needs. If you need help send me a message and I will help you modify it.

The widget should work with all versions of WordPress > version 2.8.


If you like the widget and would like to support more great widgets, please consider donating a few $$$; so I will be motivated to release some more add-ons. Thanks. :)

Works fine with proper setup, can even make adjustments afterwards to the css by using the editor in plugin options (or by simply overwriting some in additonal css via customize - Thanks!
awesome plugin, you have to use PDO because the mysql call is outdatedt in php. but after the switch it works like a charme.
Forgot to review this when I installed it months ago! Works perfectly displaying the latest posts on my WordPress homepage.
Awesome, but do you have it in the other way round? To show the last posted on the forum from wordpress?
I was using a different widget and the links were wrong after leaving the front page. This one works like a charm. Thank you for releasing it.
