Newest Nodes Revisited

Ok, after overwhelming requests I pulled my thumb out and reworked the NN table of contents. You can now specify (via User Settings) which style of TOC is presented (long/banner/none) and also which sections are listed when you visit.

Also the Newest Nodes XML Ticker has been modified to respect these settings. A minor tweak in that node was that now in the INFO element you will find "req_from" and "got_from" these are timestamps (in server localtime) that indicate how much the user requested and how much they actually got. If the two values are different then it means the time period you requested data for was too long and youve been given the data only from a more recent date.

Im hopeful some other pmdever will step up to add a switch to show the counts in the banner style, and also to provide a way for the user to specify the order the sections are presented in. Still further development possibilites are to rework the page layout to be more CSS friendly.

Anyway folks, im sorry if the recent changes annoyed you, but i hope this makes it up. Cheers.

      Yes, thanks very much ysth. If I recall correctly the default is 'banner' still?
