Not exactly..the "recent posts" is a special built-in block..but I have added 2 new block types:
- a php code block, where you can write direct php code. Even html would have to be in an echo statement, but you get more freedom with it. Of course..its also quite easy to make mistakes with it, so I am doing a preview function for that, in another window..to check if it "breaks" before showing it in the forum.
Also, new blocks will now be set to "off" upon creation...to give you time to check it before setting it "on".
