Literally have 20 Threads (no matter at which Forum-Node those threads have been posted into) shown at the Homepage at all times.
So it always shows 20 Threads at the Homepage (this number is constant), no matter how old the latest thread-post is.
When there is a new reply to a thread, then this thread gets bumped to the top of the Thread-List at the Homepage.
This change will also result in the fact that the user will not be able to click onto a Forum-Node first, before he will see the "Post New Thread"-button.
The "Post New Thread"-button needs to be visible directly at the Homepage, alongside the Thread-List at the Homepage. When the user clicks onto this "Post New Thread"-button, he will be directed to the "Create New Thread Form" (just as normal per default in XF), but on top of the "Title-Field", there needs to be an additional Drop-Down-Field which lets the user to select the relevant Forum into which his new thread belongs.
currently, the threads-listings in "What's New" are disappearing after 1 week.
So if you have a small Forum which is not very active, clicking onto "What's New" gives you an Error-message: "No Results Found".
As my Forum is not very "active" and does not have a lot of threads and posts, I still want to "show off" the existing threads at the Homepage (even if the last post at my Forum is more than 2 months old), which will "fill" my Homepage with 20 Threads, rather than showing 15 Forum-Nodes at my Homepage with each Forum-Node containing one single thread.
This Addon would help small Forums to get started.... and show some content at the Homepage.
Willing to pay.
