[3.0.x] Topic Preview MODX

Post by VSE » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:12 am

This is a MOD for phpBB3 that will display a short excerpt of text from the first post of a topic when the user hovers their mouse over the topic's title. The default mode uses the browser's built-in tooltip. The all new enhanced jQuery theme can also show the last post preview, display user avatars and is highly customizable.
