    Recent Threads (Front Page)

    Hello all,

    It's not often that I've found something to complain about at this great site.

    I was really disappointed, however, to note yesterday evening that the "Recent Threads" feature on the main site homepage (www.mycockpit.org) has been shortened considerably, now showing only 10 threads where it used to show at least 20-25.

    I'm only able to get on here once or twice a day, and the longer list almost always allowed me a quick rundown of every thread with a new post since I last visited. I could then peruse the threads that were of interest to me. Now with the new shorter list, there are obviously threads with new posts that have dropped off the bottom of the list.

    With the number of forums and subforums here, it's almost an impossibility to open them all up and check for new posts, and scanning the main forums index doesn't do any good because there could be 3-4 new threads in the builders forum, for example, that would never be seen by doing that.

    PLEASE give us back the longer "Recent Threads" listing!!!

    Thanks for your time.

    EDIT: Of course, I look like an idiot now because I just noticed the "New Posts" button in the menu at top that does exactly what I just described. Please disregard.

    Hey Chris,

    I understand the frustration.. But we have so much information for you guys to see, we need to make room. We can change it back, so if this doesn't work then we can easily change it.

    On the bottom of the nav bar is a link called "New Posts" this is essentially the list on its own page.

    Try it and let me know if that works for you

    Trev

    Though Trev....

    I really am impressed with your interior design work on the site, its nice to see some graphical changes and a splash of colour, I think it needed it for some time now, I welcome the changes! Good work pal!

    Trevor

    Craming the front page, like every body else, has its limits.

    You did a great work adding colors and a few things but too much info on the home page, has the opposite result of what you are shooting at.
    The "recent thread" column is effectively THE most important communication tool for a crowd whose attention span and clicking frenzy is very limited.
    If everyone takes time to let you know that this (long) recent posts colum is vital , it may be a good idea to reinstate it.
    The link does not always work as it should and newcomers will miss it for sure..

    Do like Boeing...never change a winning combo...unless you have to! lol

    Re: Recent Threads (Front Page)

    Was going to make the same observation about missing the "Recent Threads" but did notice the 'new posts' link, only thing is on the homepage it indicates a certain number but when you get the link there is less in the list, unless of course the homepage shows all replies and the new posts lists the number of threads containing all those replies...

    Cheers
    Mike

    Re: Recent Threads (Front Page)

    Ok all!

    Here is the thing. Taking into account the new look on the site, what is a fair number of "recent" posts to put in. It was at 30.. Now it is at 10.. Your the ones that look at it, how many do you want? and lets see if we can comprimise..


    To all others.. Thanks for your warm comments. It has been a heck of a lot of work. Trust me LOL. And I am still trying to widen out the forum by moving the side baner add.

    Hopefully you all like it.
