Just put it as a hyperlink into the existing navigation at the frontpage. So everyone can use it without a bookmark. :>

It's technically already there - click on "Quick links" and then "New posts". I'm looking if there's an easy way to modify it so that this shows up directly and does only require one click... but kind of don't want to tinker with the HTML as it would then "break on update". But I'll see what I can do.

Its pretty easy. You just have to add a single line of code.

If done correctly, it's actually four lines of code :P

Yes it is ridiculously easy, but that's not the point. The point is that this goes against programming ethics, as it's altering parts of code that should not be altered (unless through an extension or something else that can be maintained via ACP). There is no CSS/HTML editing feature in the ACP to change the navbar (nor the header/footer in general).

Anyways, I added it. Just need to keep a note somewhere to add this back in whenever I update the forum software or any other the style to edit those lines of code again. Not a big deal, just not "clean" :-)

Yay! Found a "recent topics" extension, which is far more elegant than the previous solution. Should work for everyone now - even if you're not logged in.
