Good module. Would be much better if it was possible to link to the post in wrapped mode.

Works only limited

I like this extension. But I noticed it's appearently not able to update edited post titles. Instead of that it just freezes and shows the old post title. I think this is a big disadvantage. There is no documentation and the creators website is in Russian language.

Nice work!

It works to a certain extend and the layout is neat, but there are some bugs.

The option to choose specific forums to be listed has two type, one is include while the other is exclude. The include does not work while the exclude works.

The date format does not support "DECEMEMBER" or "DEC" even though the option is available as default.

This plugin is good for displaying a list of last posts but not latest topic.

Owner's reply: This will be fixed in version 2.3 today

This is very useful and powerful module what I saw in this category! And he is absolutly free! Big thanks for this!!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review.
