View Most Recent Posts of all forum categories
Most forums have a link "View Most Recent Posts" that displays from all the forum categories.
I do not see anything like that here.
If not... can there be one.
Would save the time of having to click on each forum category to see the latest threads/posts there.
Thankyou

Thanks fluffybunny2 but...

No link anywhere for "View New Posts" if unlogged.

I see now that you must be logged in to have access to those links.
I have to go through all that clicking of enabling cookies, then logging in just to read through to get info?
Not Satisfactory.

"View New Posts" only displayed one post.
Not satisfactory

"View Today's Posts" only displayed 14 posts.
No page numbers or dropdown selection of lastweek, last 2weeks, last month, previous 6months.
Not satisfactory.

Can the admin please incorporate viewing most recent posts if unlogged, with the ability to view lastweek, last 2weeks, last month, previous 6months. please ?

Thankyou

You can/should put GimpForums in some cookie exception list (all browsers have one) and check the option in the login page that makes your login permanent. I don't even know my GF password (as a mod, for security I took a random one but it's remember by Firefox).

Don't be too paranoïd. I have also disabled permanent cookies by default, but have them enabled for the sites where I have an id. And unless you use TOR to connect, your IP address is known and can be matched to the address used when you log in.

Yes, when I log in it shows a green check next to the newest or unlooked thread/posts with a link to the right of that section of the latest post.

You can even browse the pages of the threads on that section. To see your posts/threads, click your username, then find & click either

(Find all threads - Find all post)

Very convenient imho.

To have a similar login feature without logging in, I find you do need to keep your cache so gf remember's your visit.

Apologies Blush cookies.

Sometimes you can inadvertently delete those in the process, some browsers can delete only the cache & save the cookies. So take care when doing so
