Yet the context is that everyone is talking about the new forum, as if you all had special invites form Craig to beta test it. I see no problem creating a New Topic fwiw.
As said above, this is a problem with the existing forum. Some have the button, others do not. I would have started a new topic, BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE BUTTON!

yeah we get it, Click made it clear with his screenshot to counter mine. I'm not sure what you did to piss off the interweb goddess.

I could be wrong here, but it seems as if only Canadians are barred from starting new topics. Have you guys been up to no good?
You are not wrong, its always those blasted Canadians...

The Canon Rumors home page is not displaying the latest posts at the top right of the screen.
Now I'll have to click on FORUM, and look at each of its sections?
As a time poor photographer, the home page "Latest Posts" is my number one go-to at CR.
If it's permanently gone, then maybe so am I. CR Guy, put it back.

+1 for bringing back the recent posts list to the CR website. It was very handy and I really hope it's not gone for good.

Does it have to be on the front page? Here are two options.

For my own part, I certainly preferred it on the front page of the website

I agree. Hopefully it is a temporary condition.

I have always used the Recent Posts to browse this site, and I am finding it's absence increasingly annoying especially because there seems to be no easy way to get to the last post in the thread.

There are a couple of easy ways, actually. The 'Show unread posts since last visit' link at the top right of the forum pages will give you a list of topics with posts in them which you haven't read. Either on that list, or when browsing the forum sections, clicking on the 'new' button will take you to the oldest post in the topic that's new to you (the first one if you haven't yet visited the thread, or the 12th of 15 posts, whatever). If you just want to go to the very last post in the topic (even if there are multiple posts/pages you haven't yet read), clicking the Last Post button at the far right of the topic list will take you there.

Thanks!

Don, clear the cookies out of your browser, I can create new topics with no problem, and lots are doing it. I think you need to look for a issue on your end.
I'm not saying that there isn't a problem, but check the easy stuff first. Reboot - even fixes issues with smart phones, as I have found.

I have cleared the cookies from my browser, and I can not get the buttons with three different browsers, nor using two different laptops, a PC, and an iPad.....
