    Hi since you've had this new forum, In the time I have to use it, I've found it hard to get into as I cannot seem to find an "active topics" button to show me all the titles of the active topics, so I would know what may interest me to read, like you had on the old forum.
    Is this facility on here or am I missing something, if its not on here, can it be added?

    Cheers
    Woody

    but that just gives me the ones (I guess) since I last visited, I can't adjust the time they are from (say, from 2 hours ago instead of when i last looked at a half hour ago or from 2 days ago etc), only todays or new ones?

    I am on here most days, so I haven't experienced this as an issue BUT there is a rather cranky workround.

    If you go to the HOME page (link top left), then the sub-fora with new posts (since your last visit) have a blue icon, and the dead fora have a grey icon.
    When you then go into a forum, it will display the sticky threads and then threads from up to "X" days ago. You can set "X" in a drop-down box at the bottom right - mine is defaulted to 50 days, and I have no idea whether or not this is a general setting to a profile, or whether you set it on a forum-by-forum basis.

    None of the mods can do anything about the setup of the forum, so if you have a new feature request, contact the owner (PeterT) direct.

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    Mate it's a 2 year old thread so I'm not sure there is still an issue. It was restarted by a prick who last night who was posting shit all over the place.
