I agree that might be the core of the problem - however, I don't believe you will stop it. Therefore, to devote more space to current threads is the only viable solution. Either remove the junk from the home page or to set up a dedicated 2nd page showing more current threads.

    Get rid of the news articles on the home page and use the space for a longer list of current threads.  The list is too short anyway.

    If you think the list of current threads is too short you can make a change in the control panel from 15 to 50.

    50 threads on the first page should be sufficient.

    With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                      In futility.

      if more people would do this they wouldn't complain....i have mine set on 50 also....never lose track that way.......easy to keep tabs on all the topics.

        OK, I played with trying to set that before and it didn't work.  I tried just now again and the home page only shows 15.  It works for standard members? 

        Control Panel->Board Settings.  Then what?

          control panel...board settings.....then go down to where it says 'items per page' then go to where it says 'topics per page' set it to 50 then press...save board settings.

            Yes NodI've been a premium member from the onset and didn't know that feature was available.

              Thanks - exactly what I did.  Both the very 1st time and earlier today.  In fact earlier today, I played with different amounts (like 25).  Nothing.  It stays at 15.  I refreshed page(s) and/or opened new pages.  Still 15.

                If I understand the OP's original question, it involves the homepage and the section called "Latest Posts"

                DirtyWrat/LOTTOMIKE, I just asked Todd why I cannot get that to show 50 threads.  You must have confused Latest Posts with forums.  Here is Todd's response:

                Quote

                That option controls the number of topics displayed when you view a forum page.  For example, the Pick 3 Forum.  There is currently no way to adjust the number of threads shown on the home page.

                I will eventually add the ability for people to completely change the home page to their liking, including choosing what sections appear, and where they appear.  But that capability is several months away (very complex).

                -Todd
