Show Recent forum option has disappeared
« on: December 27, 2018, 09:08:16 pm »
The User section at the bottom of the Left Panel on this forum software used to have a Show Recent option allowing you to browse all entries.
This is now missing for me.
Is it an unwitting configuration change by me, or do others also notice the lack?

Same here.

Edit:
The recent action itself is still functioning.

AFAIK the forum software was update a few weeks back. Maybe that caused it.

I couldn't see any option in admin to bring it back. Don't have time to google it now.

The page is still reachable http://forum.lazarus-ide.org/index.php?action=recent (if that is the one you mean).

In a way it makes sense, it is not a user specific page. (like unread). So it is not really a user section item. Despite I found it quite neat having it there.

Yes, the Action=recent is useful but not perfect in that it shows a touch more detail than (IMHO) is necessary and lists more than one post on a particular topic.

What would be really cool is a longer version of the "Recent" column, right hand side that shows a concise summary - quick and easy to see issues on the table right now. As the main screen generally shows content way down the page, the "recent" column could afford to be at least twice (or more) as long.

(sorry, there is always something someone wants done, isn't there ?)

Also reading forum on mobile is terrible! Huawei P20 Chrome.
Right panel "Recent" is now on bottom of page!
Reading of message body font is so small or if I zoom then is scroll-able.
Before I double click on message body and I can read forum without scrolling page left-right.
