Most recent messages on front page

Post by foo » 07 Nov 2012, 12:13

Its the crack cocaine of the old site.
If there is some facility to show the latest messages as the first thing a user sees or somewhere on the front page it would be great.

If I click "active topics" I get something like this:

search.php?search_id=active_topics

Could this be the default view on the front page?
And a link somewhere else to the different sections?
This would really make sense as it would allow people to see what was new mostly easily.
Its the one navigational feature that the old site has in its favour: easy to see what's hot at a glance.

Great idea, I'll see if I can at least put the latest ones at the top and have the sections still listed below.

Great. BTW the new sign up process is super as I was having a nightmare trying to register before

Hi, Maybe it's the hangover but when i arrived on the front page showing the most recent topics it took me about 10 minutes to figure out i had to go into one of the forums in order to add a new topic. Perhaps a note to say this or something? .. it may have been the hangover so if you don;t think it's an issue then ignore.
