I always use the latest posts thing on most forums I visit unless they have like 3 or 4 sections
Yea i guess you are right I'm more talking about on the forum page itself though. Have it only display like the latest 10 posts or what ever. I find myself a lot of the times passing up posts in other forums because I don't see them.
Yea true I was just hoping to add it to the forum like the annoucements is set up.
^^ That would be a good idea,maybe moving the user blog information below post count and stuff next to the avatar would be better,freeing up the centre for the new posts.
I like that idea sonam. Looks pretty clean and takes up a little bit of the free space.
Your idea looks very organized Sonam. May be it can be considered as a template by the Mods.
The advantage of the home page and sonam's suggestion is that the topics don't disappear between visits like they do on the View posts since last visit page. The disadvantage is that they contain a very limited number of posts and that some categories are excluded.
What I would find useful is a much bigger list of all the latest posts, maybe with 100, 1000 or why not unlimited number of posts. This is of course nothing that should be displayed on the forum index page, but it could be linked from there. If sonam's suggestion was implemented there could be a "Show all recent posts" link at the bottom of it.
