At the bottom of this site's main page, in the "Info Center" section, there is an entry for "Latest Post".

Is there a reason why this entry is often not the latest post? I realise that I can click on the "View the most recent posts on the forum" link, but it would be nice just to be able to see the real latest post at a glance on the main page.

I don't know why.  "New" report - I am keeping an eye to look for a pattern to allow me to give you an answer in due course.  Nudge me in a few days if I have not followed up further.

Thanks Graham. One thing that seems to affect it is whether I am logged in or not.

At the present time, if I am logged in it shows:

I wondered about that sort of thing as it has to show the latest post on a board you can read - showing a frequent poster topic to a guest would be a security breach. However, there is more to it than that from the evidence.

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
