Recent Topics On "Recent Posts" Page 1.2 by Nathaniel
This mod replaces the list of recent posts/messages which are displayed for the 'Recent Posts' action with a list of recent/new topics (default) or recently updated topics. The template remains completely the same. It also changes the 'View the most recent posts on the forum.' link in the info center so that it says 'recent topics' or 'recently updated topics' instead of 'recent posts'.

This mod has two modes:
1) 'Recent/New Topics' - Displays a list of the topics which have been created recently, in order of their creation. The first message of each topic will be shown. (default)
2) 'Recently Updated Topics' - Displays a list of the topics which have been recently updated, in order of the the most recent post in each respective topic. The last or most recent message of each topic will be shown.

You can change the mode setting in the admin area:
For SMF 1.1.x: Admin -> Configuration -> Features and Options -> Layout and Options -> "Recent Topics On "Recent Posts" Page mode".
For SMF 2: Admin ->  Configuration -> Modification Settings -> "Recent Topics On "Recent Posts" Page mode".
