Do you check the user permissions?*g*
I couldn't find anything in the code.

This can be very dangerous if you have private categories;)
Thould you use tabb menu or accordian menu to pack the last threads, last posts and top posters?
This would be nice if we could also place this above the forums, like latest posts....
(Dies würde besser gewesen wenn wir auch die möglichkeit gehabt hätten dies über die foren zu zeigen. Vielleicht in zwei oder drei Blöcke untereinander. )

it shows bbcode which makes it look ugly

clicking on the link returns me to the main page. the link is redirecting to the index page :S

using beta3
Permissions are absolutely necessary and so is that BBCode displaying issue. Can't wait for the next version(s) :)
Another great mod
sugg. Version 1.2
  • top poster in x day (i really need this please)
  • poll option
thanx a lot
+1 on the BBCode.
Also may want to limit the number of words displayed in each post.
And maybe list the forum name.

Nice start! Thanks.
Would also be nice to have word trim in there, at the moment it seems to pull the whole thread and display it.
Whoops, didn't read no permissions and a member saw something they shouldn't have. This should definitely be updated before anyone uses it lol. :P
