The imgbed plugin removes the need for adding in markdown. You just paste the URL of the image and it adds the markdown on the fly using regexp.
Latest posts on hover
In case of forums with lot of boards, the long list of latest post will drive many boards to a reach only by scroll area. It may act counter productive. May be we should have plugin or built in feature using which the member will see on the tiles and on mouse over, the latest posts list can appear like a drop down menu. We can even add an option to pin it, if a member is interested in what is happening in a few boards.
Yeah I do like the idea of "user pinning". Will definitely be a great plugin idea.
For mouse over, how would you suggest this to happen on mobile, because that event can't happen with touchscreens?
Glad you like the idea. As for mobiles, we can show an " Expand " button. I am sure you can find a better name for it.
