I noticed it says "Site News" and "Latest 5 Posts" on your site. Is it possible to be able to have these as user configurable settings?

Yes I could set that up for ya, as a temporary fix you can just edit the phrases. Will do in next small update

EDIT: By the way, the "Latest 5 Posts" Changes to like "latest 10 Posts" and so on. How ever many you have it grabbing, it changes that number

You can grab the last # posts on forumhome by just adding some code in functions_forumlist.php without adding any query, I think !

Fixed, reason being if you did not fill out any forumid's to be excluded, then it would give you this error

Would it be possible to use that in the header or a sidebar instead of forumhome?
