Right at the top of the forums main page there is a drop down section called "News", this section contains a link in it to a thread "Info on 504 gateway errors" that explains this issue and what not to do ( AKA re-hit submit when you get this error). The problem is that nobody seems to ever read this.

No, that is not what I'm referring to. I'm aware of that problem. I should have been clearer.

I'm referring to someone creating a single thread and each time someone replies (single reply) a new entry appears in "Recent Posts", if say 5 people reply in quick succession there will be 5 entries for the same thread in "Recent Posts". I'm not referring to duplicate posts but actual posts. This is not related to a gateway timeout bug but is actually a forum setting that needs to be changed on the backend side.

When this forum first came online the same issue existed which I also complained about and the guy looking at the forum back then agreed it's annoying to see the same thread displayed multiple times and changed a setting so a thread will only appear once in "Recent Posts". I'll try and find that thread if possible.

I miss the Recent Topics really bad, my favorite way to read most forums.

I guess I'll look into that QuiteRSS darso speaks of.

Hi guys, unfortunately the reply posts that mips is talking about pops up in QuiteRSS also but at least you get recent posts back. However you still can get the recent topics without any of this trouble.

2. Get the rss feed for the "Topics" section. (I went to Manjaro's main forum page and from the bookmrks menu selected: Subscribe to This Page - Subscribe to "Manjaro Forum - Topics)
Huh? What? Where? I can't find any subscribe option on https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php.

You're very welcome  ;)  the best solution I could find was doing it through QuiteRSS, I was really missing the recent topics function of the forum and had to have a wee poke around and this is what I came up with.

I don't have trouble posting, I'm just really missing the Recent Topics functionality, it was such a convenient way for me to read the forum.

Fademind told us about the broken forum engine and asked us to be patient and I'm trying my best to be just that, but I've more or less stopped reading the manjaro forum since Recent Topics died - I find it really tiresome to have to browse through all the subforums manually looking for threads that is of interest to me.

I tried relying on QuiteRRS as darso recommended, but I can't really get into the groove with that..

I'll keep my fingers crossed some more..  :)

You could delete "topics" from the url to see the recent topics but you won't get the old layout.

Still not working?

Something like "Recent Topics" is the most important function of a forum IMHO, it's the only way I'm used to access "classic" style forums. I don't want to look through all the boards, I want to look through all postings sorted by date in a convenient way, that's how you learn most.

EDIT: OK, https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?action=recent is working. Is there a difference to action=recenttopics? If not, can't the link in the button to the top simply be changed?

I'm using this function, too. I've set my favourite directly to that page and I really like it mean while ;)
The way 'Recent Topics' is supposed to work looks like this: https://de.manjaro.org/index.php?action=recenttopics

Hmm, I just hit the "Recent Topics" button & see that it's still not working. I don't know about the rest of you, but this is the most important button for me, at least when it comes to keeping track with what's going on in the community, hottest topics etc.

Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
