This will an extension request for sure: viewforum.php?f=496

The slider tech itself is relatively simple, but you'd need custom back-end code to supply meaningful information to it. Additionally you'll need to define requirements such as:

- Whether the slider should grab latest posts from one specific forum or multiple
- Where the extension should grab the image from (and what to display if it can't find an image)
- etc..

(1) Testing Board - Index page localhost 4a2614a01e6b.png
Something like this? I used 3rd link from this post and modified it to make it responsive etc. But it would be better to request an extension for this

Hello, Mannix.
Yeah, something like this. But instead of the text on the left I would like to display photos there. Would it be possible without having the photo stretched out?

Sure it's possible. It's just a matter of setting a proper width etc.
