Major Features
Welcome Panel: A block above your normal forums, the Welcome Panel provides a range of stats important to your members such as their post count, % of total forum posts they have, new posts, new PMs etc.

Top X Stats: This block lets you see a continuously updated feed of links to the latests posts made by your members, and many other things that users can choose between. This fits perfectly above a Shoutbox, for instance, to give people an easy view of new posts while they chat.

vB Optimise Integration: Further reduce the load from the Top X Stats by integrating InfoPanels with vB Optimise, ensuring that manual refreshes don't cause additional server load.
