[Suggestion] UX: Latest Threads Widget
#1
Love the plugin, absolute necessity for forums these days.

Would it be possible for you to swap the links around? Currently, when you click the Big bold link(title) it takes you to the first post of that thread, and if you click the tiny "last post" link(next to username) it will take you to the latest post on that thread.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have the main link, link you to the most recent content that the widget is actually notifying you about? You could then replace the small last post link with a "See Full Thread" link.

Each time I visit makestation I use that widget, and the new posts are in Bold and have a green arrow next to them - almost forcing me to click that link instead of the "last post" link, leaving me to then have to navigate to the last page of that thread. Shouldn't a link that is indicating new content, link me to new content? Tongue
Just a usability suggestion.

This will be fixed sometime early this week! (along with an image host suggestion from ElectricShock a while ago, I have not forgotten! Finna )

It gets on my nerves as well. I think this was a minor oversight in the original plugin. The MyBB 1.6 version was better. Tongue
