I have been unable to use this add on due to the query in it taking over 10 seconds to run. See here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/recent-posts-forum-index-smf-style-paid.28404/
After doing a little research I noticed that ragtech also brought this up here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/what-is-the-best-recent-posts-add-on.31721/#post-365068
So is it impossible to get a fast query to simply show the latest 5 posts on the forum???
