There's a 'View New Posts' link at the top of every forum page and a 'Today's Active Topics' link at the bottom of the forum index page, which should more than cover the previous forum features.

wow... I didn't realize that so many people liked the feature of the recent posts on the front page. I thought people just bookmarked the forum index and bypassed the main site altogether.

I was thinking it would be a benefit to have the main site officially disconnected from the forums, that way we can break away from the confines of the highly integrated postnuke site.

Overall I think we will really benefit from the features of this IPB forum, especially the upcoming feature (in v2) - LoFi Version. I think this will be really helpful when viewing the forums on a Z.

Anyway, it can't be that hard to build a block to view the recent posts on the main page... I'll start working on that.

thanks for all the valuable feedback!

This is just a guess, so just use it as a guide. I don't know how this bbs works, so I could be wrong.

I'd imagine that posts are stored in a table which has a 'date' cell. All you have to do is a sql statement that gets the last 10 or whatever results from the table, ordered by 'date'. That should be about enough information to generate a link to the actual post and will give you the last 10 posts to the forum.

Good luck

In my point of view, it's really better to have the main page like a main news page and use the "last post" button to see all new posts.

If you just want to see new post each time you connect to zaurususergoup.com, why not bookmark the "new posts" link? It's more complete, faster, better, and leave more space (e.g. no more trash) on the main ZUG page.

The ZUG is not only the forum. The old 5 posts lists on front page was annoying because it was covering up the rest (my field of vision is perhaps too short). If people insist, perhaps a survey could tell us what people prefer...

-- Little annoyances --
1. I was thinking that the the big banner on top.ZUG Forums would leave and be replaced by something smaller.
2. The ZUG menu is * Home * Downloads * FAQ / How-To / Docs * External Links * and should be available everywhere on the site (like Tabs in Qtopia launcher).

How-To Docs link on the main page is not working:

QUOTE
WikiFatalError

modules/phpWiki/lib/FileFinder.php:82: Fatal[256]: DB.php: file not found


Strange problems with tags that are always as the end of the window. Perhaps a Mozilla 1.6 bug as I have the same symptom in Sharp forum.

Tip:
If you want to go from the entrance ZUG page directly to the new posts page of the forum, you can insert the request into your own personalized menu.

Enter the following line in the editbox under "My Acount" / "My Homepage"


<A href="http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=Search&CODE=getnew">New ForumTopics</A>

Hi,
its not just about me. I am as a lot of ZUG members aware of the quality of this board. But on the way there are a lot of newbees asking for advice, espacially at a stage of making the desicion:
"To buy or not to buy" smile.gif
In these cases it was alwas very helpful refering to zug. I think it is quite impressive to see the whole thing at one look, including the download section link and the also Faq. The activity of the community demonstrates that this thing lives and goes on. This important because the Zauri are not supportet by sharp in a lot of countries. It is very representative for the power of opensource.
Sure it depends a lot on a couple of guys like offroadgeek.
Thx for the nice community.
Cheers,
Sam

amrein - I've addressed the wiki issue in another post (in this same forum).... basically I'm looking into the issue.

Regarding having the basic site links available through the site, you're thinking exactly what I am... I plan on adding icons and links to the navigation bar at the top of the forum (where the Help, Search, etc. links are) so that you can easily get back to the home page, the wiki, FAQ, etc. This will be easy to do, I just need to spend the time on it.
