At the bottom of the forum box, there's an area showing recent forumposts... is there a way to get that by itself for a side bar on themain page?

Just bugs me having to check two pages to find out if anything is happening.

PS.  I recognize it may be a while before this gets lookedat.  That's ok.  I also recognize that I may get scolded andor flamed if this is already possible.  I looked for it! Honest I did!

this would be an ok feature but maybe make the option to habe it at the bottom or to the leftr/right of the forums too. I like having it at the bottom but i can see were it may be useful in other places depending on how your website is set up and how many forums your site has.

It'd be possible to make a separate content type for it, yep.

This would be a life saver for my guild. The user that use my forums love the fact that there are so many dedicated rooms for topics but officers (myself included) hate having to scroll forever down to the bottom of the forums to find new activity. And I think that the members are being repelled by the forums size. If I could place the recent posts box at the top of the forums it could cure the problems I am having and it might even spark higher activity levels. This was definitly a four star idea just wish we had thought of it sooner.

You might not like the result if you put it at the top of the forumsarea.  It would always be there while people were posting, takingup space.  Unless it were really clever and hid when the userwasn't on the top-level forum view.

I'd love for this to be implemented. It would allow for placementsomewhere like the home page or a "what's new" page as well, whichcould be handy.

I could definitely utilize this feature!

Maybe if it was on the Home Page, people might actually stop to read the News!
