    This has me stumped.. must be having a senile day

    I use the Recent Post page as a bookmark, I have it on the browser bookmarks bar..

    So far so good.. but when you use it, it doesn't update to the latest posts..

    so how do you get a bookmark for Recent Posts that goes to the latest 'live' page ?

    I know you can bookmark the Home page and the old site Home page, or any other page for that matter.. but I don't want that, I want to bookmark and open the Recent Posts page with the latest posts.

    Seems ok to me Jim but if it just needs a refresh then clicking on the Fun flag top left updates the page.
    EDIT yes I have to agee my bookmark does not bring up the latest posts but the flag does correct it.

    I've tried this before on this and other sites, it does not update. But maybe you can add
    http://www.myrefresher.com/
    google "auto refresh a saved page", comes up with options for different browsers.

    yes, indeed it does..

    but I also use it when I get to the bottom of a long thread to go back to the Recent Posts .. which of course it doesn't.. doh .. so that means two clicks ..

    will try that Roger.. cheers

    OK, every time you click Recent posts you get a unique URL which shows you a custom personalised time-stamped recent posts page. Bookmarking that page will take you back to that custom page and your recent posts will be old.

    However if you bookmark this link: http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/link-forums/recent-posts.257/ you will always get a fresh recent posts page. However DONT CLICK ON THIS LINK AND THEN BOOK MARK IT. Rather, copy it and paste it into your bookmarks as is (y)
