    Default "what's new" button gone from forum

    The "what's new" button has been invaluable for keeping up with new posts etc. Is there any way to get it back?

    Thanks to whomever is doing all the work on the actual forum "behind the curtain" programming, I know it is a
    lot of work and the page itself runs about as cleanly as any forum I frequent- well done.

    The "What's New" is on the far left first one, (look at your photo) but I use the new posts just under the "What's New" button.

    Woops, ya posted faster than me Lawrence

    ...and clicking 'what's new' pulls up the moving activity stream first, which automatically updates as new messages are posted.

    IMHO, its much better than "new posts" button on the forum tab.

    We need a 'Like' and 'Thumbs up/down' now to make it complete/the best!

    I really dislike it. I can't tell what is going on and who says what to whom. I've totally quit visiting the forum except when looking for something specific. No longer fun when i have to dig through an activity stream. I miss the old "what's new".

    The old one is still there, it's next to the activity stream, called "new posts".

    Oops. I'm glad you pointed that out because I just haven't been looking at the forum and would never have seen that. Sorry...
