    I find that I am missing so many posts because we have so many categories to look through, is there an easy way to extend the latest topics list?

    I almost never look at the front page. Normally I just bookmark the "newposts" page and refresh that :)

    I tend to use the post since last visits page for this very reason. Sometimes the last 6 topics just dosen't seem enough.

    However if I haven't logged on for a few days..... well thats a whole other story. :)

    I tend to use Posts since last visit. I look through a few, go back to doing some proper work, come back look at some more, etc etc.
    However, quite a lot of the time when I come back to the computer I find that I have been logged out and I only have a very short lists of posts when I log in again. Consequently I miss a lot of posts. Very frustrating.
    Regards

    Solution: Use the RSS feed... and you'll never miss a post again...

    RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it is a simple mechanism for capturing regular feeds from your favourite websites...

    Step 1: Find yourself a Newsreader or RSS Reader program - I'd recommend Feedreader v 2.9 (Available here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/feed ... e?download)

    Step 2: Install said program

    Step 3: Delete all the default feeds that the reader usually comes with

    Step 4: Add a new external feed with the address http://www.digitalslr.com.au/forum/rss.php

    Step 5: Start capturing all the posts made here and read them at your leisure... Feedreader keeps track of what you've read and what you haven't and allows sorting of threads...

    Hope this helps... Please feel free to give me a shout if you need more instructions / help...
    Cheers,
    John
