Default Removed the Site Content Feed from the forums

Hi all:

Due to a combination of the fact that it was not heavily utilized and the fact that vBulletin tends to suck where fine-tuning is concerned, I removed the Site Content Feed from our forums. This was introduced late last fall alongside a redesign as a way to allow forum-goers quicker-access to our recent content. However, it seems more sensical for said users to just visit the front page of the site, where everything is presented in a much cleaner and efficient manner.

The main reason to remove this is that our news posts would often fill up the Latest Forum Posts section on the front-page... it just looked horrible. There was no reliable way around this.

Thanks!
