Choosing your own location is a feature of the Pro version :)

Cool mod- it's great to see that people are still developing stuff for vB3.

I have one comment to make, however, and it's more of a general one. The web has evolved to the point where stuff like this can be seen as more or less archaic. Rather than seeing a bunch of numbers and links to new stuff, people just want to see the new stuff. Thus, one cool idea for a future mod would be something similar to this that simply displays new posts/threads/pictures/SG messages, either at the bottom of the forum, or in a sidebar. I think that would go over well as a pro modification, too, as the current offerings for vB3 are lacking. I want to write my own sidebar, but I never have enough time!

That's not possible yet, but will be added in a future version.

vB3 collapsibles are more complex than vB4 ones.

v1.1.3 has been released, which fixes all outstanding known issues.

- DragonByte Tech Development Team

DragonByte Tech 13 Jan 2011 01:42

A hotfix has been applied to v1.1.3 which adds support for the upcoming vBActivity code update, and also adds number formatting to the front-end display.

Please re-download the zip file and re-upload the files (no need to re-import the XML) if you are using vBActivity and don't wish to receive errors in the future :)
