The Recent view of the forum
ww w.pacifi cbulbsociety. or g/pbsforum/index.php?action=recent
lists all posts in chronological order. It is a way easily to see everything that has been posted - the only way, as far as I can tell, without wading through the fora individually. There seems to be no button for this view so one either has to remember what to type in the address box at the top of the browser, or bookmark the Recent view.

A few days ago it seemed photos did show up in the Recent view. But now they don't. I need to guess whether a post has a photo, and the only way to find out is to go to the post. I do this by right-clicking the message name in the post header and opening it in a new tab, otherwise I might lose my place in the Recent view.

Is there a way to display photos from the post in the messages in the Recent view? Or is there a way a message shown in the Recent view can indicate whether there are photos?

In another forum the view corresponding to our Recent shows a list of threads with recent posts, in chronological order. Clicking on a thread in this view takes the viewer to that thread.

Recent posts is my favorite page - yet access is quite obscure. It seems embedded photos appear and thunbnails do not.

We could add a recent posts block to "Tiny Portal" - the extension which provides the home page on here.

I agree it would be nice to know which posts have photos, or to see them.
