Arrow nV News Konfabulator Widget

I put a Konfabulator widget together tonight that will pull down the 10 most recent posts on the forums here. It auto-refreshes every 60 seconds. This is based on the Digg Digger and PHP Freaks widgets.



I'd like to add some preferences to this that will allow you to adjust the auto-refresh duration, maybe pick certain forums to watch instead of just top 10 overall, change color scheme, etc.

For now though, this is just pulling in the top 10 just as if you'd clicked on the "New Posts" link.

Let me know what you think. If you don't know where to start then head here first: http://www.konfabulator.com

And here is the link to the nV News Forum Feed Widget (right-click, save as)

That's odd. It works for me on a few different machines now. I also had Gib test it last night and it worked for him. Can you send me a screenshot of what you're seeing? maxpower@nvnews.net Thanks.

Thanks! Glad you like it. I'm going to work on a preferences section for it tonight. First thing will be to add an option to make it about half the width or so for those that don't like widgets that wide.

I just did upload it to widgetgallery...had to ask MikeC's permission first.

Yes, believe it or not, I was wishing I had a nvnews.net widget. I have a bunch of RSS widgets, and what not, I am using this at work

Is it possible to have certain forums blocked from uploading to the widget? Like, maybe I don't wish to see threads from the linux forum, or political.. or whatever Either way, this is awesome

Yeah, those are exactly the kinds of options that I'd like to build in to future versions. I dug around last night to figure out how/where vBulletin makes the 10 most recent posts available as an RSS feed. Once I found that I just ran with it to get this initial version out. Allowing you to pick and choose would be really cool, something I've got to research some more...if anyone has any insight please let me know. Thanks again!

How about the ability to switch it to the 10 latest posts? Rather than the 10 latest new threads?
