    If you do not use Forum Index as your landing page (or even if you do) This add-on is a 100% must have!

    At first this feature does not seem like its such a big deal, but it has to do with driving your users to the content of the site. it can potentially increase "Session Duration" a substantial amount.

    What does it do? it allows you to display a list of your forums anywhere on your site. I include a custom header for attention.

    Goal is to drive users to the forums for content generation

    This add-on is a critical part of a shift away from main navigation/ navbars ... hold up.... I know it sounds crazy now ... a forum with no navbar but just consider how social media has approached this .... can you really imagine Facebook having a "Click Here" image? Maybe we are assuming they need the prompt but in reality we are just cluttering up their phone display.

    Sooner or later the Navbar as we know it ... born of Microsoft Front Page and HTML Web-rings DNA will be a thing of the past. (or it should be)

    We need to start thinking of ways to move the users around our sites without prompts. Providing a forum list like this add-on is a huge leap in that direction
