Well, here goes my first super-minor modification!

Used the search function, but couldn't seem to find anything like it, so decided to do a quick one myself. It's a mere minor modification, which serves the same purpose as here on vBulletin.org.

Description:
This minor modification allows you to click a link below the category name in order to view the latest topics in XX category. It won't serve as a replacement for the forum description, so if you'd like to add a description as well, it (probably) won't interfere.

Instructions:
Go to your Style Manager in AdminCP and navigate to the following template: forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost. Once there, you'll come across the following bit of code:

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

Between the first and second line, add the following:

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

You can change the text accordingly. The if conditional is to check whether your category contains childforums or not, and sets it to 0 if the latter.

There goes my first modification! If you like it, don't mind to click install!

But why do that if you can do it globally?

What is the difference between viewing the latest topics in a forum and simply viewing a forum the regular way, since posts are sorted by the most recent on top anyway?

I guess it's merely a matter of preference - appearance and whatnot. Plus, it'd be easier to view topics in a specific category if you have a reason to do so while having other categories collapsed or whatsoever.

But as said, I see it only as a matter of preference.
