Trio forum threads panel can be used as an upper or lower center panel.
It uses locale files so it is easily converted to your language. Dutch.php and English.php are included.
It shows, Most read, Most active & Latest answered subjects, side by side.
On news.php and \forum\index.php it shows Most read, Most active & Latest answered subjects globally.
When viewforum.php is called only te Most read, Most active & Latest answered subjects from that particular category is showed.
Installation is simple. Upload the map infusions to your root website directory.
It will add a directory trioforum_threads_panel in your infusions directory.
Of course you can also copy the trioforum_threads_panel directory directly to the infusions directory.
Go to you admin panel -> system admin -> panels
Click on [New Panel], you can choose either Upper Center or Lower Center. I think Upper Center is the best choice.
