latest comments in a category

edited October 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Anyone aware of an add-on that'll display on categories.php the latest post in each category and who posted it?

    Thanks, but that's not really the direction I'm looking to go. I'm talking about the thing you see in most phpBB vBulletin etc. forums, where the list of categories displays who the last poster is in each category and which thread they posted in.


    The 'last post' column in that screenshot, in other words.

    May I bump this request? I'm a new forum administrator since a few weeks. I setted this forum (using Vanilla of course) for a large spectre of people. Somes aren't familiar forum users. The main problem they have is they are confused by the non-classed discussion list. I told them to use the categories list, but they don't like it because there is no "unviewed: x" sentence. I feel as a such addon could really make the forum more friendly user.
