What is Recent Posts:

   Allows a user to see all the recent posts in a formatted structure.

How It Works:

   The selections are 1, 3 and 7 Days. The selections are to be found on the home page under "Recent Posts" in
   SMF versions 2.0.x and when you click on "View the most recent posts on the forum." in SMF versions 2.1 Beta 3


   View the most recent post in a easily readable format. Located on the home page in the "Forum Stats" section.



Installation Instructions:

   Installs via the Package Manager that is included with the SMF software.

   Available Settings can be changed at Administration Center » Modification Settings » Miscellaneous section

Always ignore those who attempt to tell you what to think and believe those who will allow you think for yourself

$txt['recent_days_1'] = '-1 d&iacute;a';
$txt['recent_days_2'] = '-3 d&iacute;a';
$txt['recent_days_3'] = '-7 d&iacute;a';
$txt['messages'] = 'Mensajes';

I have also the same question ...   So far unregistered members has access to Recent Posts (SMF default function) , and NOT the registered ones.
Therefore I am interested of this Mod and to see a screenshot of where this icon? / menu?  will be placed.


Just installed this on 2.0.18 with a few minor edits. Link is

Screenshot attached...

Edits are ins Sources/display.php

m.smileys_enabled, m.poster_name, m.poster_email, m.approved, poster_time,

ORDER BY id_msg' . (empty($options['view_newest_first']) ? '' : ' DESC'),

ORDER BY poster_time ' . (empty($options['view_newest_first']) ? '' : ' DESC'),

Also move all the images from Themes/default/images/icons/icons to Themes/default/images/icons - Custom Logos - My Themes on SMF | My Themes on ShadesWeb - Sniffing out the road ahead
