Since you want to know how it works, though, the gadget opens a page on my server, where php , mysql, and apache is installed.

There, php does all the job. It uses curl, an applet that lets you "see" a url within a variable, and manipulate it. So, when I open the forum's page through that script, I do some text trimming and cutting to get only the parts that I need. (lots of it, this part took me most of the night) . Then, I break apart the parts, to manipulate them better. This is how I can change font sizes, image sizes etc.

It's really advanced php, I'm also a web designer/programmer, so I might not know nothing about gadgets for now, but I consider myself a php/mysql elite ...
