Oh, this is quite useful since it promotes the discussions... thanks! Works beautifully!

Would it possible to make it collapsible though?

My users seem to like it, however they already suggested making it collapsible :D Another small (?) request: could it  be shortened to one line - that is, omit the second line from the table?

Oh, and I think it broke Tapatalk...

On to do list. (i had made it first but deleted the code, i thought it wouldnt be necessary  ??? )

Dont know i have to look into that.

also do to is that it will work with the global topic mod, ill work on that when the author of that mod will update it, as it has some bugs into it.

Very nice mod, thank you.

When using with SimplePortal, it uses the full width of the page (like a header), shifting all my left and right blocks down.

Is there a way to make it take up the same width as the forum topics (in the body, not header), so the left/right blocks remain in place?

Or is it me?

Thanks.

Can you post a screenshot or link to your site? Did you checked on disable recent forum topics mod from frontpage with simpleportal in admin settings?

Nevermind about the screenshot or site link, i figured out what you mean, i have a solution for that but it takes a file edit and some code to a portal costum php block, ill post that later, i'm testing first to be sure it will not mess up any/your forum. Btw with adding code to portal php block you can also choose to collapse the thingy  :P

Heres a screenshot on a new site i'm currently working on, ive been testing on that one.

I'm now sure this mod breaks Tapatalk. Uninstalling it gave back Tapatalk functionality.

This is the error one gets with the Recents mod installed:

@Gryzor
I think i fixed the mod that it will work with Tapatalk, no guarantee?

Can you install the RecentForumTopics mod agian, and after that replace this file(see attachment)--> Subs-RecentForumTopics.php in Folder ../Sources, be sure to make a backup of that file first before replacing,

If you done that could you reply to this topic and tell me if it works or not, thx

Actually I had to change a couple more things, but I'm positive that when re-adding the mod it stopped working; I'll test again today, thanks!

i've just installed this mod on my forum (new install 2.0.7) and have a few issues with it.

First issue I have is I have it installed it along side nchat shoutbox and whenever recent topic is enabled it stops nchat shoutbox from work. (nchat doesnt display previous shouts or allow you to add new shouts) but if i disable recent topics it works fine.

Second is placement, with this mod installed i get recent topics, shoutbox, forum index
 is there anyway I can move it so its shoutbox, recent topics, board index?

Is it possible that the mod only picks new topics added based on the first post. It shouldn't consider replies to designate the recent activity.

Secondly, how to make the mod only pick topics from certain boards and not from all of them.

First: The mod nchat wich you are using is for smf 2.0.1 my fix solution is to install simpleportal they have a shoutbox implented, and i know that its shoutbox work well with my mod. (see screenshot in above post).

Second: As far as i know you cant fix the placement because nchat is hardcoded and my mod uses hooks. The hook ads the RecenForumTopics right after the Header.
