Hello. This has already been asked by someone else, whether they can hide subcategories from home page but the response was to modify the CSS. Could there be a feature which could hide the subcategories without having to modify the CSS?
If we were to update the list automatically the page would be a total mess on a busy forum as topics would have to move around every time a new post comes in.
You do have a point there.
However, you could still do it in a Facebook-esque style:
When a reply is made to an existing topic (or a status, on FB) is made, do nothing (or alternatively, only update the reply count & "X posted Y minutes ago" snippet)
When a new topic is made, add it to the top of the list
List every topic in order of most recent reply (current behaviour)
@julian That would be awesome, Julian. As @KnownSyntax said, it is simple things like that that makes it easier to present NodeBB as a solution to other moderators and users. The engine is already head and shoulders above rest.
