As some of you know, I am a moderator on another forum, which I won't mention, not looking to spam, and there is a feature on that forum that displays the latest 10 active topics from all forums on the forum main page. I really like this feature, it allows me to see the latest 10 active threads, I'm not sure whether it's a plugin or something that can be enabled on phpBB, but I believe it would be a great addition to the bottom of the forum list.

On the main site page (http://www.the-fastlane.co.uk/) there are some last active posts linked. I have that page as my bookmark, as you never know when another article will pop up.

There's a load of pages that do that under "Quick links", for example the "New Posts" one is my bookmark for the forum, I almost never enter via the main index page.
I am very sorry if you find my posts long and boring, I like to type and often go off on a tangent.

Ah, I see, guess that I've just gotten used to seeing it on the index page of the forum, guess that it's time to bookmark the active topics page.

Thanks.

@myownalias There's an extension available called Top Five, which I had installed briefly to display the latest 5 posts on index, but it seemed to conflict with one of the other extensions and I had to disable it. I think it also made the index page a little too long, especially on mobile phones. The solutions posted by the others are the next best thing.

I did investigate the idea of using some of your board's features here in case we ever merged, but your board uses custom extensions on a custom version of phpBB3, which I think your admin paid (continues to pay?) rather a lot of money for...
