    Change start page for logged on users

    Is it possible to modify the site so that users who are already logged on go straight to the 'forums center block' page (can't see the link for this anymore BTW but I know it still works). I never read the 'Welcome to EduGeek' block and in my opinion it's a PITA. I often use EduGeek on my TV based browser which means I have to scroll down a page and a half to get to the list of recently updated posts. Also, there is so much activity on the site these days, that this list often does not show all the threads modified in the last 24 hours for instance.

    It might also be good to have pages which would show all activity over a fixed range of times (24 hours, 7 days, 30 days etc).

    If I'm stoopid and all these things are already possible, please tell me how to do it...

    Thank, and keep up the great work on my favourite site on the Internet.

    Andy

    I was just thinking the same thing!
    I only ever look at the "forums latest" and ignore everything else completely and i've been visiting since July.
    If you move the welcome pane to the right or underneath the updated forms bit it would be a lot more friendly to return visitors.
    I also just noticed (as it's the first time i've looked at it) that on the left navigation pane competitions is spelt with an R.

    @russdev:

    Vast improvement. I know I can use the 'posts since last visit', but it doesn't seem to work well when you regularly access the site from more that one location. I would still value a 'posts in the last day/week/month' option.
