I really like this feature and I'm glad Wilkins made me look into it. Makes it very slick to catch up on recent new threads

I like it a lot. I actually get kind of annoyed when I have more unread topics than what shows up in the "recent topics" part because then I have to go into the specific forums or go to the next page. Way too much clicking.

I can increase the number of threads that show up on the feed. I'll try adding 5 or 10 and see how it looks.

You're right. The recent topics is already longer than the main forum. I don't want to increase it.

Now change it from recent topics to topics that have updates, basically just show the red links.

Reminder how to do this. It's the bottom radio button.

1) Click the icon that looks like the old school MSN dude on the top right of the page
2) Select "User Control Panel"
3) Click "Board Preferences"
4) Click "Edit Display Options" on the left
5) At the bottom of that page you will find the settings

Am I overlooking it, in the wrong place, or just plain stupid?

Hmm. Can maybe I see it on my own because I'm an admin? I thought everyone could! Do you want yours changed to only show unread? I'll try doing it for you
