This hook is not "one more recent topics hook", this is completely new approach to board index page design. I've focused on the following key points:
- The real face of each forum are users. They make a forum alive. Lets show few of them on index page, show their faces!
- Everybody want to watch the the topics it has participated or started to check those topics for new replies quickly.
- Sometimes user is getting bored and its wondering to read something new. Recent topic titles! Lets show less graphic, but more data! Lets show, that your forum is alive!
Note: this hook is using generic CSS colors, so UI will always match your skin color theme (even dark one)! I attached few screenshots with different skins look&feel below.
Note: This hook can be compatible with hook (by Michael). Enjoy!
P.S. I attach webvizor screenshot in order to prove, that this hook will become most clickable on your forum.
