    I would love to see the "Recent Threads" widget extended from 5 to 10. Even on smaller monitor resolutions, it wouldn't be too overbearing. I rely on that little section a lot and sometimes I miss good threads on account of the top 5 staying active.

    I second that.... it will expand one's view as to what is being talked about.

    It's between the "whose online now" widget and "forum statistics" widget. And if you can't find these two widgets, the "whose online now" is above the recent threads widget and the "forum statistics" is below the recent threads widget.:lol

    OK, I finally found it. That's about the first time I have returned to the <HOME> page (except to start a thread) since I began here. All I usually use is the <NEW POSTS> and <RECENT POSTS> buttons.... up at the top of the active page.

    I've also noticed -- I don't think that widget incorporates recent threads from every forum category, just some of the categories. I think it would be much better to incorporate ALL of the categories. Call me lazy, but I'd rather see the headlines than flip through every single page. :)

    Be aware that threads in forums unseen by members are included in the number but not shown.
    For example:
    If a post is made in a staff forum 9 recent threads instead of 10 will be displayed to non-staff members.

    I'll bump the amount up by 1 to 11

    BUMP.

    With the new forum theme the recent threads widget has went back down to 5. Can we get it bumped back up on the new theme?
