I will think about an implementation to this.
Ah, now I understand! THX!

Rated 5* and voted MOTM even if it is still slightly crude in intstallation and administration for us newbies. But functionality and value for my site is no doubt 5+ !

Now if not asking too much: Linking to the actual / latest post in a forum thread instead of the first posting in the thread? Feasable?

Thanks! As vBulletin does not offer an easier way to include a new widget, there is no way around this.

Yes, I will integrate this in next version.

A fix is good for something that is broken. But this sounds to me like a feature request

Any chance you could add an option to sort the results by type (article, forum, etc.)?

I've had no luck setting this up as a single page, so a page dedicated to this widget, any suggestions how to put this in standalone mode?

What will completely make this mode even more amazing is the ability to reply to threads/posts, maybe a small button which opens a small pop up for the member to post a quick reply, without having to click on the link

That will be amazing! I will love you if you could add that.

If it was like dp's vbspy and updated itself every x minutes where x is the cache setting it would even better.

Another top class release Phalynx ty!

This is awesome! Thank you.

Is it possible to include support for Dragonbyte Tech's achievement and award streams?

Thanks!

How about putting this on but as a php page rather than just a widget? I don't care about the preview just want an activity page.

This is actually what "What's New" was supposed to return imo.
