thanks simon that's a good tip - but it doesn't explain/solve the issue with "active topics" not showing all of the active topics :!:

It would be useful to know what the definition of "active" is from the forum software's point of view.

Can anyone tell me what version of phpBB we're running? I'll have a look at the source code and see what selection of topics/posts is a made when View active topics is used.

On some other forums, there is a "View latest posts" option which lists all threads in order of latest post first. That seems like a good option.

I think phpBB has an option to include or exclude each forum/board in the overall 'View active topics' list. It's somewhere on the settings page for each forum/board. My vote would be for topics from all forums/boards to be included on that page.

I note that it is recording posts time as GMT, not BST

GMT!!! We don't use that in the world of IT any more. It's UTC nowadays ;)

And my last post is showing the correct local time from my perspective. I posted it at 10:21. Are you not seeing it as that? Perhaps have a look in your User Control Panel and see what your timezone and summer time settings are.

i think the time-zone default settings for the board are set "elsewhere" - so members need to change it themselves, using the options in their "user control panel"

go to ucp - select board preferences - scroll down to my timezone - don't forget to select "summertime in effect" if applicable ;)

I'm sad to say that the new website just doesn't work for me.
The beauty of the old system was that it allowed for new posts to be instantly viewable, If I had a question or some advice to seek I could post a message and it was there for all to see, I'm sure the new site was upgraded for a very good reason, however the spontaneity has been lost.....Ho Hum.
