    Figured I would ask this question to all members:

    I just bought a new android mobile device. I frequent this site using the device and for some reason, when I scroll down to display the drop menu (the green tabs that float down from the top) "recent posts" is no longer an option on this phone. Does anyone know of a way to rectify this? Thanks.

    Good idea. It did display another drop down tab but it is labeled "Watched Threads" not "Recent Posts." Hmmm. . .

    Happens on my phone, too. It's a problem that Otto has on his list. (Probably a long one) I mentioned it a while back, so he's aware of it.

    Simple...just bookmark "Recent Posts".

    That's what I did for my android. Works like a charm. It's also one of my most visited websites, so I can get it with the dropdown box of web addresses.

    Not always...on my android it is hit or miss if I get recent posts or watched threads, no matter how I am holding the cell.

    Update on original post:

    After messing around with the functions on the mobile site I have found an alternative to the "recent posts" drop down tab. If any of you have this problem, scroll down the main page until you come to the windows on the bottom. One of these windows is titled "New Posts." This displays the top 5 newest posts available. However, if you click upon the title "New Posts" you can view all recent posts. It also includes a marker for all updated posts since your last visit.

    There is also a "Recent Posts" link on this screen which I have bookmarked (Thanks Takao).
