    M-F widget?
    I have a great idea, well, it might not be so great to some, but I always have to come into safari, go to mac-forums.com, and click get new, we should have a konfabulator widget, MF widget, just for us, so for example, I get emails for topics im subscribed to, but Id also like to be able to see new posts quickly, a konfab/dashboard widget would be perfect, or even an rss feed would be great for use in netnewswire. what do you all think? I can help, though its been a while since I attempted making a widget, we could always take one already made, replace the images, and relink to mac-forums content.

    A rss feed would be nice, one for each sub-forum..

    There was some talk of creating a Konfab widget a while ago but at the time I think Konfab didn't support what was needed to make it happen. And then it was just kind of forgotten about. So if anyone wants to do it, it's open for you.

    As for an RSS feed, I can look into that suggestion as well.

    heres another quick idea, I used the same pieces over and over to make it faster.
    I think its ok, but thats a quick one, like I said, but its sorta an idea of the overall look, not too good.
