Creating a Similar Addon?

    I recently imported from IP.Board, and I've been searching high and low for a quality addon that is similar to the one I was using before.

    I am just wondering if there is anyone experienced with making addons that would be willing to create one for me.

    The "hook" I was using for IP.Board was called Recent Topics, and basically it shows a box on the forum index (NOT SIDEBAR), and shows the most recent topics/posts with the topic title, author, avatar, last post info, and so on.

    Would something like this be easy to create? And if so who could I seek for help?

    The hook I had been using is below:

    The sidebar one will work, just change the hook from sidebar to ad_above_content surrounding an if conditional to check against forum's index.

    Can you provide me with the link? I'm not sure which one you are talking about, as I've seen a few. :)

    An alternative (if you're planning to use XenPorta for your portal) is to set up the index page layout and include the Recent Threads block on your forum.

    Thank you both, I will probably go with RobParker's suggestion. Can't believe I didn't notice that!
