Try this, but make sure you keep a back up of your original code just in case it doesn't work,
let me know how it goes. It is a shot in the dark.

you can place the variable used by the plugin, in any place you want to display the threads... whats your forum url.. and post your index template here...

I was having the same problem. I found the solution to this problem here. More specifically, this post. I am now able to add a sidebar, including "Latest Threads" to every one of my themes.

One little piece of code added to your "portal_latestthreads_thread" template and you're good to go.
