Good idea. I like it. face-smile.png

But I think the readability of "Show posts created these days before today:" is not quite good. I would suggest something like "Show posts of the last (input field) days: (submit button)".

Thank you for continuously improving the website. It is appreciated. face-grin.png

I have implemented sorting by Topic/Forum and made some other improvements:

Sort by topic:

sort_by_topic

Sort by Forum:

sort_by_forum

The view use default values when calling the first time: Days=30, Sort by=Topic. Days are restricted in a range of 5 to 1000

I'd suggest a small redesign of colors. The site has too much beige for my taste, maybe others think the same? Why not replacing that by some beautiful black or something like this?

The new view is available now. Default is to show the latest posts from the last 30 days, grouped by topic. These values are just a guess, and can be tested best in production. If they don't fit, i can adjust them.

I have also increased the base value for the Latest Posts box, so it is likely very rare to have less than 8 'latest posts' posts in it. We may can reduce it to 5 'latest posts' again, since we have the new view?

Unless you're worried about performance, I think it's fine to have more posts in that box. It's shorter than the average topic on screen, except maybe for really high screen resolutions.

Excuse me... Didn't I just answer to your question which I found in this thread?

Sounds like a misunderstanding to me - Kaputtnik was talking about the contents for a specific page, and you made a suggestion for the overall color design of the site, which is out of scope for the feature that Kaputtnik is currently working on.

Didn't know that it is out of scope.
