What does this addon do?
With this addon, the latest threads are displayed in a ticker on your Forum Home or any other place you want it to be.

NOTE:
It can be setup in the ACP, except the style variables. The colors should fit the most common Styles. If you need help in adjusting the colors, please contact me.
It´s also possible to use a rtl direction.
You are allowed to post this addon to your board. Don´t forget the credits.

Initial release of v1.3 for Xenforo
Updated to v1.4 after errors has been reported. Info added if no nodes have been added. Colors are made Xenforo conform

Just a small update. Please read first post. No updated version because to make sure that all Templates added with the xml will be deleted too. Thats why a reinstall of the new xml is needed. Sorry for any circumstances
