    Lee / All,

    Would it be possible, and what does everyone think about having a londer 'trending now' list at the top of the page (i.e. not worried about the repeated side bar).

    Reason is that this site is so popular with lots of posts that anything over about 2 days old drops off the bottom and is therefore sometimes not seen / answered by the community as a whole. I know I only click on the trending now links rather than anything historical.

    As for how much longer then probably about half as many again to give it '3-4 days worth of posts?'.

    The trending now widget is for just that, discussions that are trending, a thread with no replies isn't a discussion (yet) and therefore can't really be trending...

    What you really want, is a shortcut to a forum-wide search (search is your friend), no problem, please see the attached screen shot of a new "quick link" that now lives in the main nav bar, i've given it options that i think should cover what most would be looking for.

    Thanks for the feedback, let me know what you think

    I don't think that was the problem. Say if you had not been around for 3 days then you miss posts if they have dropped off the trending list. I know you have to stop somewhere but 2-3 days is quite short? Just my 2 cents worth. ..Clive

    Well yea you would but that is because it's a trending list not a "posts since your last visit" list. In that case you should go to "New Posts" Clive as that's based on your last visit to the forum and shows all since then and those you haven't read yet.

    Lee you are missing the point I think. I use the new post list. But I read most of the posts on the forum but if you have been away or you have clicked the read button the its hard to catch up.
    It's no big deal though. ..Clive

    Ok I see where you are coming from and I'll give that a try. The unanswered posts option could also be useful

    I agree the trending list does need to be longer. Me personally I haven't got time to be searching to find people who need answering but I'll gladly answer if they are there in front of me and trending is the first thing you see.

    What's the the problem with making it longer anyway surely it won't hurt but only make it better.!
