Latest Post Listing

Are there any plans to restore the list of latest posts on the main index page? 

I found this a very useful feature before it was removed in the run up to moving server - keeps you up to date on interesting posts without having to check each county board all the time.

Hi Akanex2  :)

It was useful but I've found that clicking on Unread posts since last visit (top centre of screen) and/or Welcome does list the information.

I too am missing the old page a lot  :(

I find Unread since last visit less convenient because you easily lose sight of the posts you just had a quick glance at but plan to reply to a little later. Welcome is shorter than the list we had before and above all doesn't show whether it's a new thread or a reply to a thread (the old page would make a difference between 'Latest Post Listing' and 'Re: Latest Post Listing'

Pleeeeaaase Trystan!  :-* :-* :-*

I miss the index page and would like it to come back as well. If needs must, could it be swapped for the one on the Welcome Page ??
