improving the recent replies and recent topics widgets
These two are in need of a serious overhaul and I lack the skills to do it. Please read this text and let me know if you agree or if I’m looking for something nobody else needs?
Lets look at the recent replies widget:
If I have the widget show the last 10 replies, and the last 10 replies happened to be on the same topic, you only see that one topic, everything else is drowned out.
The good thing is, if I click on a reply, I jump straight to that reply, not to the beginning of the topic.
Lets look at the recent topics widget:
Sorting by newest topics, this is pretty neat but I wish one could also show the specific forum with each recent topic shown. Clicking a topic sends you to the beginning of that particular topic, which is cool, after all its a new topic.
Now to get what I was looking for with regards to the recent replies, I am now using the recent topics widget but sorted by topics with recent replies. Except that it doesn’t list the latest poster but the thread creator and it links to the topic’s beginning and not to the latest reply.
I kinda feel we had a lot more power, plugins and extensibility with the old bbpress before version 2 came along.
Unfortunately, I’m not a coder so I can either wait until someone helps out or move to another solution.
