Show info pertaining to own topics on Index?

Terrific extension - it's incredible how useful this is for a support type forum. Well done and thank you!

I have one request, if I may. Currently on index, the number of topics and posts isn't displayed and the Last Post field says "Classified Information" - which is great. But could it be nice if once someone has made a topic in that forum, that the index displays the number of topics/posts and Last Post info that the user has access to?

I'm not sure if that is even possible, and it's really a very low priority thing so if it would involve more strain on the server, I'd skip it altogether. But I wondered :)

Thanks again!

Thank you!

I actually decided to approach that detail by hiding the information because it can easily become a strain to the server.
It would require me to code a bypass to the integrated cache system and "manually" calculate how many topics and posts that user has access to.
I could implement my own cache in memory, etc.... But it would always be a hack of some sorts.

Instead of delaying this extension development even more, I decided not to implement it altogether for both the last post made and the post+topic counters.
