Recent posts overview has disappeared
« on: June 22, 2024, 08:54:14 PM »
I don't know if this is related to some recent change (maybe the attachments purge?), but the display of recent forum topics which preceded the lists of boards seems to have disappeared. This makes it much more difficult to see what has happened recently. Clearing my browser cache does not solve the issue, and I am seeing this on multiple devices.

I found a work around where you can click "All unread" up near where it says "Hello <username>"
At least then you can keep up on new posts.

There is also a link at the top for "Today's Posts" which is helpful.

I also notice a strange addition to the user sidebars next to posts which shows some kind of awards that seem related to how much they have posted. As this doesn't look like it fits this forum I am assuming it was some unwanted software update or something.

Ah so I haven't gone insane.

Edit: There is actually a recent posts section near the bottom of the webpage, you have to scroll for it.

It happened to me in the afternoon of Sunday 23 (CET), after a message, that lasted about one hour, saying something like "the database is restoring a previous version (or a previous save)".

Seen. Thanks!
But previous method showed discussions, not single messages, and was much more informative IMO.

Thank you, Erik! It is a good solution, but it appears only if you log-in.
I was looking at the section in the "Recent posts" image.

Edit. Now, the list of recent discussions is visible again. Also not logging-in.
See the "Recent posts_2" image.

The forum software thinks it is out of date. I attempted to update and things went... badly. So I reverted, which meant putting all the mods back.
