Unlike before it does work via the forums (fora?), but as you point out, not via 'all recent posts' which I use more often to navigate. Hopefully they'll fix that soon. I love the way they leave us to discover these things!
We had a great birthday thanks, although I am still not talking to the dawg. As for the garden..been planting fruit trees today!
There is a way to do this already. If you retrieve the Forums topic, any topics with new posts will have a link showing the count of new items. If you click on that link, instead of the topic name, you will get the page with the new posts, already scrolled to the first new post. Note that this is NOT yet implemented on the All Recent posts page, and only seems to work when logged in. Then again, if you're not logged in, all posts are "new," so to speak. "New" is a client session level concept, not a server level concept.
Likewise, there is also a link to the last item posted, and that will take you directly to that item as well.
This functionality appears to have been (silently) rolled out within the last week or so, and I just happened to notice the more correctly formed urls when I inadvertently hovered my mouse over one of the links.
Hope this speeds your reading, Badger. BTW, hope all was well with the wifey's canine inclusive bday. I trust you got her something nice for the garden.
As for the avatars disappearing, this is probably an unintended server configuration issue. It could be something as simple as a missing or malformed item in a properties file. As I have virtually no experience with drupal, we'll have to wait for an official assessment. When it comes to web apps, I always "roll my own" and prefer to use java/JSP instead of php.
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

can you please please please please ask the tech people to fix it so that we can see the most recent post first. It is such a pain having always to head for the last page and work backwards through a thread. This has been requested many times and cannot be that hard to achieve (after all Personal Messages are sorted like that).
I am sure Mr Pid knows how to do this ;-)
I bow to Mr Pids technical know how. Here's a couple of tips
Phantom Log Ins
This happens often to me. It seems to result from not logging off properly. When you log out, make sure that the process finishes completely before closing your browser or heading off to another site (wait for 'Done' at the bottom of the screen in Firefox). Also do not log out and then use the 'Go Back' button on your browser, once logged off it is best to close Deadnet and then reopen when needed.
This is getting annoying. For example in 'Show Recent Posts' I often get the current page from when I last logged out. The only way to get the most recent is to log in .it makes browsing without logging in a real pain (which must use more bandwidth too).
Me and some pals figured them all out about 10 years ago. I'm sure it will all come back to me if I see the picture. Time to investigate...
does anyone know where I can find the answers?
will be back!
Various experiments behind the curtain, I guess...
