Xforum latest forum posts block ?

Hi.

On our DJ/Producer website we're using Xforum as a forum module.
I'd like to display a block on the main page which shows the latest top 10 (or more) topics created on the forum.

I looked in the options, preferences etc, but can't find it.

Does anyone have an idea on how to get it done ?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Jax

You need to activate a forum block to show the last topics.
Go to Administration -> Blocks
There you will find all blocks you can use

Since XForum is not maintained anymore, I would suggest to switch back to the regular NewBB.

Hi Bleekk, I will check that out later.
@Mamba, sorry, but I friggin' hate NewBB. I love xForum.
Might not be maintained anymore, but I love all features.
NewBB sucsk big time in my opinion. But that's personal.
We used to use NewBB on our gaming website and lots of members stopped posting on the forums because of all the issues with it (double posts, no posts, no cellphone support as in 'unable to post, please try again'). With xForum, we can use it on our cellphones without any issue. Just my 2cents.

Ow, I see the blocks indeed. Meh, how could I've looked over it haha.
Now I have to do some colorcoding (easy though).

If you guys like music as in podcasts and tracks, then check out the site:

I will look into this for you... For Chronolabs Modules just put a request on under 'Hacks and Modifications' and when i have a moment, i will come up with some code for you to run as a PHP block..

The Discussion forum is here :: https://sourceforge.net/p/chronolabs/discussion/
