  • Last Comment By (aka Last Post By)
  • Last Comment Time (aka Last Post Time)

  • Number of recent topics displayed
  • Columns displayed
  • Colors
  • Fonts
  • Background and logo opacity
  • Color for the background rows/logos (light pink, light blue, dark blue)
  • "Colorize" settings for the rows. The "colorize" settings for the header row will also be applied to the logo graphic.
  • Login and password
This widget will work with message boards that have one of these layouts:
TopicRepliesViewsLast CommentStarted By
TopicReplies Last CommentStarted By
TopicRepliesViewsStarted ByLast Post

If you come across a different ezBoard layout, let me know and I will modify this widget accordingly.

When entering the message board URL, you must enter the URL of the message board itself, not the forum index page. For example, http://p207.ezboard.com/btherefuge53914 is not a valid URL, but http://p207.ezboard.com/ftherefuge53914frm1 or http://p207.ezboard.com/ftherefuge53914frm5 are valid.

Clicking on a topic title will take you to the last page of replies to that topic.

Logo position and size are configurable. The logo can be placed at any of the corners, allowing you to align the widget against any edge of the screen.

Double-click the logo to minimize or expand the message list. You may also click on the minus and plus images to minimize or expand the message list.

Double-click the title to go to the url of the message board. You may also visit the message board via the context menu.

Hovering over the logo will display the "Last Updated" time in a tooltip

Click to show sectionNotes

September 2007: Prior to version 4.0 of Yahoo! Widgets, you could monitor multiple message boards by making copies of the widget, each with a distinct file name (e.g. ezboardRecentTopics1.widget, ezboardRecentTopics2.widget, etc). These copies would each have their own set of Preferences, including their own message board URL. While this can still be done on a Mac, you can no longer do this on Windows because of a bug in Yahoo! Widgets. If you need to be able to do this on Windows, contact me and I will see what I can do.

  • To the fine people behind www.ajaxload.info, which I used to generate the new (well, new in August 2007) "loading" graphic that is optionally displayed when data is being retrieved
  • To Isabelle and Amanda for beta-testing
