    I simply need this add-on changed so that it lists the most recent threads and not most recent posts. Right now it pulls from last_post_date. I need it to pull be most recent thread created.

    If it pulls from xf_thread why don't you simply post the code in question so someone will be able to change it 4U?
    It seems to be an easy modification with just a few words to be changed. Not worth even $30 perhaps.

    Sorry, I forgot to put the link: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/monthly-whats-new-email.912/

    Have you contacted Slavik? Modifying is not very straight forward because the thread_id is not available from the last_post info of the forum. Of course it can be done but it's best to ask the author to do that for you, paid work or else.

    Yes, no response.

    If $30 is not sufficient to get this done please let me know your quote.

    $30 should be sufficient.

    I have started work on this - nearly complete.

    xfrocks - you're absolutely right. That is exactly the correct and most respectful attitude towards the original developer. He has, however, confirmed he isn't inclined to develop the original add-on further.
