Stefan,

I noticed the "Recent Posts" section on the forums page just shrank i size. I suggest you compromise and make it a bit larger, at least 1 day. Some of us can't check in every hour to see what's new.

Also, I much prefer the "Basic View" to the "Default View" and think you should make Basic the Default. Once logged in people can set whatever theme they prefer, but for those of us who spend most of our time lurking, switching themes is an irritation.

I suggest taking a poll to see which theme most users prefer.

I agree completely  :)

For me the biggest + for the basic view is that it marks the Recent Posts that I've opened, which I use to 'mark' and keep track of where I last left off. Very handy!

I see the "Recent Posts" section has now completely vanished when using the Basic view. Now, the only way I can see the list of recent posts is with the Default view, which does not keep track of what has aleady been viewed.

So much for usabilty.

OK, what's going on here? If it's red vs blue then us blues are losing.  >:(

Here's an alternate/quickest way to view Recent Posts but it isn't a pleasent reading experience:

Yeah, I tried that. It sucks.

C'mon people. Don't just accept the default. Try both themes and then express your preferences in the poll above.

Well the most 300 recent topics makes a huge database access and unfortunately are
only at the forum page and not the start page..

The main programmers told me that this is , what slow down theforum
very much, if too many people access it, so I got rid of it.

I now edited the News Section, so you will see at least 5 or 6 hot topics,
but I will see, how I can get a better and less queries consuming listing of the last 500
recent topics done...

I myself am also using only the blue theme, as it is just faster.
I will see, how I can change the default theme to the blue theme soon.

Now I have set the blue Basic Theme as the standard theme,
so it uses less power on your PC and less CPU power to scroll
and surf the forum.

You can change it yourself, if you wish to the transparent theme,
if you like this more.

In the future I will add more themes,
but have to see, if these work okay with the forum software.

Thanks Stefan. But the "Recent Posts" feature at the bottom of the forum page is now broken with the Basic theme. It was working once, but quit when I started this thread. Is there a chance we can get that back?

It is not broken, but just disabled.

Well, I want something like this for the start page,
but without the huge resources request on the database.

I have posted for this in the SMF programmer forums,
but it is not yet available or only at a huge resources cost,
that makes the forum slow, if many users browse it.

You can have the last 25 postings via the RSS feed,just click the
left RSS feed button in the left Menu.

Of PRIMARY importance in a website is content.
OU.com has lot's of great content and discussion.

A VERY CLOSE 2nd is ease of navigation.
OU.com USED to have the best navigation/layout of any discussion forum out there. (back when using the OLD SOFTWARE)

Being able to easily navigate/view the recent posts/topics is CRITICAL to many, many users of this type of forum.

Hopefully you can figure out a workable solution.
Or even go back to the beautiful navigation of the old software front page.
Each individual forum (ie. Magnet Motors, Pulse Motors etc.) still presents the info/navigation that was once available on the front page as recent posts/topics.
You know: Subject, Started by, Replies, Views, Last Post. (see pic)

As I've said before:  Discussion is key to a topic.  However, when a topic drops off the front page of recent posts (which is now small and contains much less info than before), the interest drops off quickly.  Keeping as many eyeballs on as many topics as possible is great for everyone and everything - more discussion, more ideas, and more page views for you $$.

I've gone from a longtime daily visitor/contributor to a very rarely visitor due to the current pain in the neck it is to stay abreast of current posts/topics without an easy recent posts/topics module on the front page.

(and the new talking-robot-thingy is really annoying!)

Thanks for listening!

Yes, I am not happy myself with the current situation
to find the last posted messages....

But just log in and use for now the

* Show unread posts since last visit
http://www.overunity.com/index.php?action=unread

and

Show new replies to your posts
http://www.overunity.com/index.php?action=unreadreplies

links on the upper top panel.

I will try to find a better recent postings code for
the frontpage or for an extra update page soon.

Regards, Stefan.
