You may also want to add some information for plugin authors. The
difference in rendering the What's New block is caused by something in
the forum from what I can see.

On every page other than the forum, the What's New block is using
blockheader-left.thtml and therefore a

  <div class="block-box-left">

for the block header. But in the forum, it seems to be using
blockheader.thtml and therefore only

  <div class="block-box">

And because of that, this CSS rule is not used:

.block-box-left ul,
.block-box-right ul {
  /* do not indent lists in the blocks too much */

Is that a bug in the forum or in the block rendering code?

bye, Dirk
