I know a lot of the regulars and moderators are unhappy with the content currently on the homepage. In actuality, the homepage is designed to be an overview of what DaniWeb has to offer for newbies, while catering to more active DaniWeb members by only showing articles that are in the user's areas of interest, and have new content since they've been last viewed. The reason that regulars tend to be unhappy is because they visit DaniWeb so often, there isn't enough fresh content for the homepage to show. The Latest Posts button offers a stream of all the latest content that's been posted.
All that being said, I'd like to open this thread up to anyone who has ended up at an article they think should have been on the homepage, but wasn't. In other words, if the homepage isn't showing you the content you want to see, let me know by telling me what content you would have wanted to be on the homepage, but wasn't.
Note the homepage, by design, will always only link to the first post of a thread. This is by design, and is not subject to change anytime soon.
