Link to Mod

This modification moved only recent posts from bottom to the top under news fader. You shout turn on the news fad to appear it.
In the version 1.1 you are not need to turn on news fad, recent posts above news fad table. if you do not want news fad use version 1.1.
For other themes, find boardindex.template.php and do it manual see install file

Now I have update for version 1.0 and 2.0. Both now look better than before. Removed the one forum link unnecessary at the top of recent posts table.
version1.0 for people use news fad on
version2.0 for people use news fad off


Error in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

   Type    Action    Description
1.    Execute Modification    ./Themes/default/BoardIndex.template.php    Test failed



If you have fail to install that mean your default/BoardIndex.template.php has been modified. You can install new SMF to check first. If you have modified your boardIndex.php, you can see the install file to do it by manual. Good luck.


This is a great mod... but I'd like to make it collapsible for board members who would rather not see it.

Is there any way we can have it collapsible (and have the forum remember if a particular member has it collapsible)?

I'm using the default theme.


Are the recents posts visible only on the front page or are they also visible when the user is reading a thread ?


Only on the front page.

Any thoughts on my collapsible question?

Fantastic mod! I need to figure out how to add this into my Blue-lt theme's BoardIndex.template.php  >:(

Done!  :P Great mod again!


Great mod. :D

Is there a way to make it so the stats are displayed on the bottom and there is a gap between the forums and the recent post box.
