Would it be possible to show more posts in the latest forum posts page?  Or, have it user customizable?
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

I agree.  (I must admit I've grown used to AmigaWorld.net showing nearly 30 posts including the non-Amiga related chat.)

IIRC the current latest forums posts module was a b!tch to implement for wayne and it's near impossible to change it (due to xoops being silly).

1) It's not possible to make it user-customizable.
2) You could never get everyone to agree on "how many" to show.

How many do you want?

It's now showing 30.  Anyone want to start a poll as to how long it'll take people to start complaining about the list from being too long?

Perhaps you should start a poll on how long the list itself should be?  :-P.

But that would belay my tyrannical nature... :)

Seriously, I'm not really opposed to any changes to the Web site as long as people take a moment to understand that

1) We can't really make lots of changes to the core code (since Xoops 2 sucks so bad) and

2) Nothing else can currently be made "user definable".  Seems everyone thinks it's just a flip of a switch to make every detail a user-definable choice, and that's simply not the case.  If it were, Xoops would absolutely crawl, since every single screen would be hand-devised, and none of it cacheable.

In the case of the lastposts change, changing it to 30 posts WAS, in fact, a 2-second change, but no one had ever bothered to ask, so I never thought much of it.

If you ask, I might say no.  If you don't ask, then you get no answer.  Isn't a 50/50 chance better than none at all?

Oh Great.... Now I'm the "Xoops Nazi" (Seinfeld reference)
