We'd like to see this ...
the first hundred or so characters of each Forum topic displayed underneath the post title, as it is done in CjForum Module
(with an ellipsis if the post has more characters than desired excerpt length...)
I thought this should be configurable in the Topics | Show Intro text or maybe "List Layouts" config section, but no joy there.
If this can't happen 'very soon" I will need to implement it myself... would you say it's best to implement some of this as a plug-in? (A layout override works for me now with settings hardcoded there, but I'm thinking of using a plugin for backend configuration...)
Please advise, thanks!
