Howdy from all the CodeRanch staff, and welcome to the February edition of the CodeRanch Journal.

* Where did the Recent Topics go to ?!?. One of the most like entries to our forums is missing?

Recent Topics, as our Trailboss explains: "has been deprecated for years and it is using old code that needs to be removed. The PIE stuff is $1 per month. So if you want to keep using that feature for a while longer, you can shell out five bucks every five months.  Easy.  Or, use the new replacement that functions almost exactly the same."  

PIE = Programmer's Inner-circle Elite . Having pies means that you have access to some of the premium features of this site: view and post in the hidden pie forum, turn off ads, highlight one thread with a pie (does not cost pie) to name a few and have access to the Recent Topics feature. To buy some slices of PIE click buy pie link

Is there an alternative? Yes, you can make use of our dashboard functionality.... TL;DR? Have a go at: Edit Profile > Site Personalization > Default view on the home page -> "Most recent topics table" or "Most recent in last month by category" or "Most Recent Only" or .....
