But with "newest topic" I can see quickly which thread has new posts without overcharge information that I am not interested in.

IMO is the usability with "newest topic" much higher.

Indeed.

Also If you click "View the 5 most recent posts on the forum. "
And the latest posts are all in the same topic you can only see that one topic has had replies.
With "Newest Topics" you get far more information at a glance no matter how many people have posted in each topic. And you can skip over the stuff your not interested in.

No worries capt Jon, We can just add the mod like you say, if he updates it for the new version  Grin  Wink

I don't find the "recent posts" usefull.
If I want to read the latest posts, I want to see it together with the complete thread.

With "recent posts" I see/read the entirely X posts of thread A and Y posts of thread B and so on. Even if I am not interested in.

But with "newest topic" I can see quickly which thread has new posts without overcharge information that I am not interested in.

IMO is the usability with "newest topic" much higher.

Its was the fact you can view the most recent in its own page and set how many show up there.
Looks like a neater way of displaying the most recent posts too.

NM just thought I was suggest it.  Smiley

@ The Boy

  Agreed.  and the feature of View the most recent posts on the forum is selectable at the bottom of the Forum Statistics in YaBB, is just a Click away.

I'm not sure it needs to be a core part of YaBB, given that its not a universal requirement, and looks to be covered well enough for those who want it by Boardmod  Undecided
