(Problem) Recent Topics links to older topics
« on: April 21, 2021, 07:13:11 PM »
Recent Topics link (just to left of search box) links to not so recent topics page (note start=90):

maybe there's a reverse setting somewhere getting confused, for me page 10 shows me topics from a month ago, page 1 shows me topics from today...  I think I'm using Yorky theme, don't think I adjusted any ordering settings.

Main page (index.php) shows recent topics, "recent topics" page shows not so recent topics.

so what's the problem? it shows 10 pages of recent topics, page 1 is the most recent and displayed on the board index, should the link go to page 1? no. it's already on the board index page, the link goes to the end of the list the oldest most recent topic, this is the way the mod is designed. Should page 10 be displayed on the board index and the link takes you to page 1? no. that's backwards.

not quite sure what the problem is, there is no provision in the mod settings for where the link takes you but it can show the first post in a topic that has new posts instead of the new post from a given topic which is not very useful because all you see is the initial post in a topic instead of the most recent  :skeptical:  to quote the author of the mod "Nothing more to say, it is what it is..."
