Hi I don't know who to direct this but is it possible to add additional lines to "Recently visited forums:" on the page. In my opinion 5 lines are not enough and on my computer screen I have plenty of room to add to that list. I really think it has to be an easy fix. If no one is using that I would be surprised. I used it to make visits to in this case my 5 favorite forums but would love to be able to have up to 10 and I am sure I can find 10 fun and active forums to follow.

It's not an easy fix, it's how the forum software operates and changing it would involve creating some new code.

Sorry to surprise oldsoldier, but those side panel lists (active threads and recently visited) usually get x'ed out in my browsing of the forum.

Same here. I don't use that feature at all.

It seems a bit odd that you would not take advantage of short cuts to favorite forums. What do you do to find you next thread to read? Do you scroll the entire list from the general forum page? Sounds cumbersome to me. Marka you are technically correct in that it is done at the software level but.... it would only require a single line change not an entire rewrite of the code.

I am not surprised fubarbundy. F'd up beyond all recognition seems to be your condition. I personally find the feature helpful to view my favorites. I have no desire to Philosophy True Crime or Relationship forums so why scroll passed them. Having a selection of favorites makes getting to them and staying up to date with them much easier.

Elnina you've certainly seen these to the right of whatever thread you're looking at, these are what my lists look like now (before they get x'ed out)...

So how do you get them back after you see what it looks like with them gone?

You reset internet explorer. It is just a web page and your browser saves it the last way you had it. But if you reset your browser it should return. It has for me.
