Inside of plugin forumhome_latest

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And Remove it.

Then place:

$latest

Where you want it

Also updated so now it collapses

Just read your message, sorry, must of read over, anyways it does not use permissions, I designed this mod for a customer this way, because he wanted it, he recently bailed on me, so I decided to release it to the public. Will think about doing that in the near future . Thanks and sorry

Okay g00gl3r sorry about this.

I had the plugin location in forumhom_complete, I moved to a global position.

Please re-download and reupload. $latest should work In any location now (just tested footer)
