If you are anything like me you hate a long list of plugins in your ACP and you really hate uploading plugins because anything could go wrong (like accidentally placing files where they don't belong and finding them 3 weeks later thinking "how the ****?". So here is my replacement for this issue. There are two topics for this section. The first is the basic generic "pulling" and the second is a more advanced clean up for self hosted mybb forums (because unfortunately using the built in portals latest posts/threads function does not show thread prefixes (which a lot of people use for dictating whether or not a thread is Mature, Open, Private, etc.) and it also does not style a username with the color/styles attached to the usergroup) which we will fix in that section of this tutorial.
