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.
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.November 20, 2020 at 9:22 am #45413Memberskidoo
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.November 20, 2020 at 10:01 am #45415ModeratorcapreaNovember 20, 2020 at 9:17 pm #45442Memberskidoo
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. ?.
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?) tutorialNovember 20, 2020 at 9:36 pm #45444ModeratorModdIt
Sometimes language and perception plays a role.
Most popular topics
Topics with no replies
Topics with most replies
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.
