I've broken the Hot Deals forum out into its own module. If you don't customize your front page, then you should see it automatically, otherwise if you want to see it, you will need to customize your front page again and add it.

Wow, I'm impressed Aldie. Just a short while ago some one posted an idea and you replied and acted on it and got the job done in a very short amount of time. Kudos to you and you efforts!thumbsup

Thanks again Aldie for the rapid reply and even faster implementation. Hope you didn't give up some of that precious time off because of it.

If this were an RPG site, that would be "Hot Module Deals Added".

I added the Hot Deals Module to my front page, but it's empty despite lots of posts in the Hot Deals forum. What gives?

Do you have any rows assigned to the module in your Custom Front Page?

Awesome (I always wondered why the most pertinent to current events forum wasn't front page worthy).

Now this may be a stupid question but why can't you change your front page settings in your profile page. I just spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out where to do it (as I do almost everytime I want to edit it) only to find that it blends in to the BGG News pegged items where "Hot|Active|Recent" normally resides in all the other forums.

Can ALL of the Tanga crap be put in there so it doesn't burn my eyes when I visit the site?

Mouse over "My Geek" at top of page. Then click "Account" (just next to "Profile.") Click "Customize Front Page" and you're there.

How have I not stumbled across that "Account" page before?

Thanks for the info. I constantly get the feeling that I still don't know half of what you can do here.

So... when on december 1 will we find out?


A little off topic... but at one point in a thread a while back Aldie gave a link to see all the current ads on one page. Sometimes I like to see all the banner ads together so I can see if anything interests me, rather than just reloading a page a bunch of times.

Also that link was useful for those who paid GG to remove ads, if they wanted to see the ads without enabling them.

Anyone remember what that link was?

It might be nice if Aldie added that to the Misc category at the top, or maybe add it to the ad manager.
