And why is the RECENT POSTS link gone?
« on: March 25, 2014, 09:28:02 am »

What I hate about deep forum hierarchies is that you need multiple clicks to multiple subforums to see what is new in each. The Recent Posts page is the only workaround to keep track of everything.
And the unread since last visit link is not an acceptable substitute because most of the time I read the forum without logging in.

This block of links is not visible when not logged in. I bookmarked the recent posts link for my own use, but for a new forum visitor its lack reduces usability.

wesleyh - You can make a block of recent posts visible by default in Admin > Configuration > Current Theme.

Set "Number of recent posts to display on board index" as 5 if you want to match BTT, although I prefer to have more in forums with high activity... but that's up to you guys.

This will also make them visible for guests.
