This is part two of the PowerGUI.org blog badges instructions. In part one we learned how to add a PowerGUI graphics widget.
Today I will show how to add a widget dynamically showing your latest threads or messages at our PowerShell discussion forums.

If you want the widget to display recent threads(rather than posts) use this RSS feed instead:
That’s it. If you want to add graphics – see my previous post.
If you are on platforms other than wordpress or have other ideas of PowerGUI widgets – please post them on your blog and add the link in your comments to this post. Please help us spread the news of PowerShell, PowerGUI and PowerGUI.org to a wider community!
