Recent Topics On Board Index 1.03 by Nathaniel

This mod replaces the list of recent messages on the board index, with a list of recent topics. The formatting however remains completely the same. Please note that it only works if more than one posts/topic is being listed in the list, and if you have enabled the setting below.
