I also have some forums that are dedicated to "tech articles". These are moderated forums that are meant to be like a library. I'd like to have a separate post count for those too.
I'm looking to create a plugin that will allow the admin to easily specify a new post count for one or multiple forum nodes. This way I can have a separate post count for classifieds, articles, and possibly some other forums. The admin would select all the forums they want included for the post count. I would need some guidance as to how to place it in the postbit area and on the member's profile. It will be running on a big board site so it needs to be fairly lightweight.
