News Generator

This plugin was originally made by Rickard Andersson for PunBB back in the day but I have adapted and expanded upon it with the help of FluxBB devs.

Detailed description:

The purpose of this plugin is to generate static markup based on a template for those posts you deem as news (creates news.html). This can be used for example to display the home page of your site.

NOTE: Not really a mod, more like a plugin since it's drag/drop install (readme.txt inside).
