Looks good - except the avatars link to /member.php instead of /member.php?<userid> and so return an invalid member error when you lick on them.

Any idea of how I can fix this?

I can confirm that. A fix has been released (v2.0.3)

Also, this modification is compatible with 4.1.7

hey P-meister, any way at all to get one of those little blue arrows at the end to click that will go to the first new post in that thread? Just like on the 'whats new?' tab in the navbar

There's a bug in the widget permissions.

If a member creates a private gallery (the contents of which are only viewable to his own contacts and moderators) and uploads photos to it, the widget displays the photo info such as:

> Tester uploaded new photo: Picture 2

This is displayed to all members, however non-contact members can't see the thumbnail.

The "items" option seems to do nothing.. I've tested it dozens of times (yes I cleared the cache).. Whether I set it to 1 ,5 10, etc it always pulls multiple items from some categories like profile changes/etc. Can someone explain if I am understanding this option correctly?
