Latest messages

In other forums, we can often find a link to the latest posted messages (even already read). Would someone else find it useful here ?

It could give a simple list of, say, the 50 (or less) latest messages posted with the topic subject (which would of course link to the message), author and date of the message. This list being sorted by date descending, regardless of the forum it was posted in.

You mean like this?

I don’t have any more unread messages :smiley:

But you can have an idea by looking at the forum home page. Here you can see on the right the latest message for each board.
This would be almost the same approach, only that there would be no board name and it would contain all the latest posts, not only unread messages.

I have found that if I read through the list of unread messages and then want to go back and reply to one, because I later thought of something to say, then I have trouble finding that correct thread to reply to. A recent posts list would help. ;D

Ah, I see what you mean. Just a general list.

Yeah, that would be nice. Simple to implement, too.

Yes, this would be nice :slight_smile:

this is like an RSS but viewed here on website

Yeah, that’s the idea.

Yes, that’s the idea ;D Is there a RSS yet? (dont shoot me if I do not know this yet :D)

No RSS that I can see, but it would be very easy to implement if there was already a list.

An RSS on our blogs would be could of course. Spread the word :smiley:
