Topic Preview 2 Is All New!

This is a MOD for phpBB3 that will display a short excerpt of text from the first post of a topic when the user hovers their mouse over the topic's title. The default mode uses the browser's built-in tooltip. The all new enhanced jQuery theme can also show the last post preview, display user avatars and is highly customizable.

Featured MOD of the Week in the phpBB Weekly Podcast, episode #143!

  • Let your visitors peek at what's inside a topic before they click on it.
