Good idea, but we need it to be in text and not images. Not every member has an avatar.
Good suggestion and point, I agree It would be nice to see a text based option rather than just avatars. Also, not sure whether your taking on suggestions but to ask that if you entertain the text based option for it to also inherit usergroup styling (richtext) if the admin as styled usergroup markups.

@BlackThorn Regardless of that nice work. (y)

It seems a Top Thread starter is more likely to have an avatar than an average user.
I was thinking more along the lines of it being a space saver. Whilst you do make a good point sideblocks are like nav tabs they are prime areas that members fill quite quickly. Anything to minimise that is always good practice imo and as an option the admin will have a choice to pick text or avatars pending whether the OP wants to take this direction and include the suggestion in of course.

Thanks for all the suggestions. In the meantime I would guess, I will add in the next version. As a matter of fact, I'm working on adding new features for the next version of add-on.
It really don't work on my board i tried doing this.
I paste the code to my PAGE_CONTAINER template
find {xen:raw $sidebar} and paste if below or above like adding a custom slidebar block but it's still not working.

Any suggestions to get it to work with xenporta? Putting it in forum_list has it working on index page however, the portal page does not display such.

If you use Widget Framework, please don't use with the sidebar in forum_list template. Just try it with Widget Framework templates or in forum_list template without the sidebar code.

Just a note that if this is installed, your site will error-out and not load...

Clearly needs an update for 1.2.

I don't do support on XF 1.2 for that add-on (and others too) yet cause I'm quite busy these days. Just disable it during this time but a new version 1.0.2 update is coming soon.
