    I've set the maximum number of posts to "5". But there are still more posts shown.

    Thanks for Checking,

    It looks you have a problem with your Moodle server setup. Do you have enough Memory for Moodle? What Moodle version are you using?

    Thank you for this plugin.

    When I deliver online training, I like to have a block with "all latest post". But I'm looking for a way to display latest posts in a simply block :
    - without the title of the different forum,
    - with all forum's posts mixed in the block.

    Is it possible to re-use this plugin to do that ?

    Best regards.

    Yes it is, but that will require changes to the code. These changes are relatively easy to do, but i guess you will have to do it yourself or let someone else do the changes.

    Thanks for the great plugin! I would like to use the plugin as alternative news-block, coupled to a forum on system level or in a specific course. In this, people can see different categories of news and can respond to news items. Would this be possible? If so, how much work would it be to change it?

    Hey, This requires quite a lot of changes in the code. It sounds specific, so i guess you will have to do the changes yourself or find a programmer. I'm unable to assist you with this.
