    When I go on recent posts tab I get the below list shown on right side.
    Irritating. To a newcomer it could look like the site is an orphan.

    Recent Posts

    antiX-19.2 (Hannie Schaft) with 4.19 kernels available April 6, 2020
    antiX-19.2 based on debian sid isos available March 29, 2020
    antiX-19.2 (Hannie Schaft) bug-fix/upgrade isos available March 28, 2020
    firefox 74.0 available March 12, 2020
    Latest browsers available February 29, 2020

    Maybe someone knowing the workings of the forum software could fix.

    tab?
    If your meaning is “hover the ‘Forum’ navigation header and click ‘Recent Posts’ from the dropdown”… I reckon what you’re seeing (pageful of ‘old’ items) is not due to a bug. It’s the result of having TOO MANY PINNED, AKA STICKIED, TOPICS.

    tab?

    Propably the OP is refering to the “Latest topics” -link on the right side under Quick Links, not “Recent Posts”
    What you see then on the right side is a preview of the “Quick News”
    But the last QuickNews were actually a while ago.

    Aha, I see it. Yes, while viewing the “/forums/view/latest-topics” page
    righthand column is literally titled “Recent Posts” (and displays the stale QuickNews items)

    I will still opine “too many stickied topics”

    Extra Thread for Browser questions. ?.

    too niche

    Portuguese

    initially merited attention, but in the long-term is too niche

    Upgrading antiX-17 to antiX-19 1 2

    pinned for a year, this has run its course.
    At this point, anyone STILL looking to belatedly upgrade can search (or post to ask, and be directed to the topic)

    [TUTORIAL] How to install get-iplayer (for downloading BBC radio/TV programmes)

    much too niche to keep this stickied indefinitely

    Package mirrors list

    Since the main antiX repo server is down…” (on a sad day back in April 2019)
    this paints an unfavorable impression.
    Great to know that many, many mirrors are available
    but this info should be linked via a right-hand sidebar button, or header navigation button rather than a stickied topic

    Short essential how-to list for the complete Linux newbie

    I applaud the effort that went into creating this howto, but its content still has not been fully vetted (and I personally disagree with a few of the “recommended” details) and per the configured forum settings, the OP cannot edit//enhance post #1 ~~ we cannot effectively, collaboratively, improve this reputedly “essential” (and therefore stickied?) tutorial

    Sometimes language and perception plays a role.

    Quick Links

    Most popular topics
    Topics with no replies
    Topics with most replies
    **Latest topics**
    Topics Freshness

    Latest Topics,
    Linked headers are, sort of stale, to put it mildly.

    Whether this is due too many stickied posts, no idea, as not knowing the workings of the forum ranking.

    Just think it is rather irritating to new visitors.
