Expand the "Recent Posts" Section?
« on: August 31, 2013, 11:29:40 AM »
There seems to be a steady stream of traffic and posts going on in these forums at this point.  I wonder if you might consider expanding the number of posts that show up in the "Recent Posts" section at the bottom of the page?  This is where I always go to catch up on what's been posted instead of going into each individual forum.  But, sometimes there is only an hour or two worth of posts there (it looks like the 12 most recent posts are shown) and if you haven't logged in all day or for a few days you can miss whole threads which fall out of the most recent 12 posts.

Perhaps double the number of posts shown to around 25?  Whadayathink?

Dean, you can click the little icon to the left of "recent posts" and it takes you here^

I also like the idea of increasing the number of posts shown at the bottom of the page

Much Better. I know there are other ways to check recent posts, but I was a quick browser also, I check the bottom of the page and move on, so this is much better. Thanks
