Thanks, that gets it on the login page but it is not displaying latest post -- only one that is 2 days old. How can I set this to show 5 of the latest posts?
The Control shows only the Topics which the current user as access to. If you want an guest user to see all posts you need to allow the Guest Role View access to all Forums. I think the Best way would be to clone the control and make a separate control for this where all topics are shown but the links to the topics would been disabled.
what if i want to include active forum post in a web site on the root directory? not on the forum root folder?
Well most of the controls in yaf are work only inside of yaf, however if you understand the yaf code you could easily make this control work outside of yaf. I already did this for the DNN Module maybe i should include the YAF WhatsNew Control in to my YAF.SampleWebApplication
