Title: Recently replied topics

It would be nice to have a recently replied topics page that you can bookmark instead of the current front page.

Checking all forum areas if there's something new is in the "no fun" category.

I was about to say the same  8)

But I noticed that once I am logged in, there is a link under the banner that allows to "Show unread posts since last visit. (https://ae.amigalife.org/index.php?action=unread)" That's not exactly the same indeed but i know other forums where it is the way also. Those forums don't usually need you to login for this service though, I guess they use some cookies to compare dates?

It is on the todo list to try and get something similar done for this site.

You probably know this already, but anyway.. "recent posts" and "recently replied topics" are not the same thing. The latter gives a better overview.

Sure, i can take a peak and see how i could do that. There is a mod for SMF which lets you bookmark topics you want to keep an eye on that i have considered installing as well (see here how that would work https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=864)

There is a mod for SMF which ....
Depending on what you had in mind (and you did not already know about them) it might perhaps be more interresting to have a look at simpleportal  (https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1104)(website (https://simpleportal.net/)) and/or tinyportal  (https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=97)(website (https://www.tinyportal.net/)) mods. They work with (custom) blocks such as recently replied topics, shoutbox, links sections etc. It should in theory be pretty easy with those mods to mimic old aros-exec forums without too much of a hassle. afaik they also provide a fronpage (hence the name portal in their name  :P )

I wanted to check them out before suggesting those but i seem unable to get the freakin' SMF installer to coorporate on my machine.

Hey

Not seen them before but i do not want to mimic the old AE look, we will for example not have a news section anymore, it was very rarely used in the last couple of years. But thanks for taking the time to come up with suggestions :).

This site is not finished on the design part but i do not have the time right now for major work and the site works fine for now, it will improve over time.

Thank you for your time 4pLaY

I hear you, and no problem.

Might it perhaps be an option/suggestion to post a sticky somewhere that contains the links that aros-exec used to provide on its side-panel ? Right now my tag isn't allow to grow any further (or i must use URL shorteners) and i am still missing a link to the AROS archives. That is unless those links are destined to be forgotten.

Let me kick-off with a small list to get started:

AROS
AROS Distributions
AROS sources
AROS Wikibook
Some informative threads from old aros-exec.org forums
Other AROS Resources
Want to donate to AROS and related projects or otherwise want to show your support ?
Other forums where AROS can be discussed
I probably forgot one or two links :P

I have added a links section now in the top menu. All members can submit links, right now i do not have time to sit and add links myself.

Thank you 4pLaY as i can see the link at the top of the page.

Uhm.. is my browser blocking something there (or perhaps i am too clumsy/dumbwitted) as i fail to see how i would be able to add a link when i am logged in and travel to the links section.

PS: sorry for derailing the original topic. In hindsight there was a better thread in which i could have asked/posted. sorry to OP for that.

Edit:I've created a separate thread (https://ae.amigalife.org/index.php?topic=76.0) for a list with links to not further pollute this thread.

No, I have many projects going on and it is not easy to find a time slot for everything in the little spare time I have for these kind of projects.
