    When I log in I automatically click on New Posts and continue browsing from there; what is the difference between New Posts and Recent Posts?

    There should be a tab marked 'New Competition' and also 'Current Competition'. The 'New Competition' tab should flash slowly when members can enter for the following month. At present the 'Competition' tab always goes to the current competition. Probably the reason there are not 100 entrants each month.

    +2. If that removes the general chat threads from the front page when I logon.

    Just an update. This is currently in development and the functionality should be implemented next week sometime if all goes to plan.

    Another quick update. This is now 50% complete. The reason it's not 100% complete is because the coder who is doing it had scheduling issues and completion will be delayed by a few days.

    If you ignore forums or threads those ignored threads (including all threads from ignored forums) will now not display in the Recent Posts widget in the forum sidebar. However for the moment they are still showing up in the Recent Posts widget on the home page. In a couple of days the Recent Posts widget on the front page should also be working.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Thanks galumay.

    I'd really appreciate it if those who would like to ignore forums or threads could give the new functionality a good test to make sure it is working correctly. It is possible that there may be bugs that both the coder and mys are unaware of. If someone does find any issues, please report them to me in this thread.

    Would it be easier for the coding to just have the widgets in question ignore General Chat by default? People who want to post in General Chat will find it easily enough when they hit the "New Posts" button.

    I've gone too far down this path to turn back now, so we'll see how the new system works out when it is complete. Other options can always be explored at a later date if the new system proves to be inadequate or flawed in some way.

    Fair enough. Just as a quick test I have Gen chat on ignore and it shows on the Recent Posts + Trending Topics widgets on the home page.

    Trending Topics will be unchanged but the Recent Posts widget on the home page should be working soon. Hopefully, threads from the General Chat forum will no longer be showing up in the Recent Posts widget in the forum sidebar for you. It's difficult to get things working according to everyone's preferences (as good as it is I wish the forum software would make this a little easier) but I'm doing my best. :wacky:

    It looks like I spoke too soon. I am glad I used the word "should" though. This one relatively small job has become a giant headache with ongoing issues and delays.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that it hasn't been forgotten, is being worked on and should be finished soon. I will provide an update once all the niggling issues have finally been ironed out.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Update: This is finally functional. Those ignoring threads or entire forums should now not see any of those threads in the Recent Posts widgets on the home page or in the forum sidebar. If anyone comes across any issues with this functionality please let me know in this thread.

    One possible side effect from this change is the Mod Squad random chit chat thread is showing up in the "recent posts" widgeee on the home page ;)

    The good news is the YES voters can't actually read it :p

    @Joe Blow What's up with the right hand side column? All the text is centred - it's triggering my OCD

    Yesterday afternoon I was making some forum template modifications and I accidentally messed up somehow, resulting in the text of the sidebar widgets being centred. Unfortunately I can't figure out what it is that I did to cause this to happen, so now I'm waiting for the freelance designer I use to fix it for me. Unfortunately he resides overseas so he's in a vastly different time zone. I was hoping I'd wake up this morning and it would be fixed, but sadly that did not occur. Rest assured that as soon as it can be fixed, it will be fixed. I prefer it the usual way as well. :oops:
