    I've installed the plugin and now the post with the most recent comment appears first on my index. However, I would like it to be ordered by the most recent comment or post. ie. The most recent thing to be posted, whether it is a post or a comment on a post, that post should appear first. For example:

    #1 Post-C (posted at 15:00, no comments)
    #2 Post-A (posted at 12:00, most recent comment at 14:00)
    #3 Post-B (posted at 13:00, no comments)

    Post-A appears above Post-B because Post-A has a comment posted since the most recent thing in Post-B. Post-C appears above Post-A because it is more recent.

    Currently, using this plugin they would appear like this:

    #1 Post-A (posted at 12:00, most recent comment at 14:00)
    #2 Post-C (posted at 15:00, no comments)
    #3 Post-B (posted at 13:00, no comments)

    Like this, a new post never gets to the top of the index unless it gets a comment.

    This would be an excellent enhancement. I've attempted to use bbPress in the past, but it's far too bloated for my needs, and the bbPress plugin templates are a beast. After weeks of research, I have yet to find something that effectively and simply recreates the "Sort by Latest Activity" parameters. I would gladly donate to a developer who could point me in the right direction!

    Likewise, I'd donate to see this happen.

    I've wrangled a programmer to help me on this. I'll try to share what we find, libertino23.

    Sorry for the lack of activity here. WordPress doesn't seem to do a very good job of notifying me of new support requests.

    Anyway, great suggestion! I'll see if I can whip something up and apply a patch. And donations are always appreciated.

    I just uploaded a new version of the plugin that adds a orderby_last_activity query var. Thanks again for the suggestion!
