SUX!It really blows the layout out of whack as per the following image.The Theme needs to go three columns or add the latest posts and latest Topics into a smaller div like the top ten thing.

The latest posts seems to have increased loading time for me when loading the forum index page. It takes around 8-16 seconds to establish a connection now. Every other page loads like expected.The size is not so bad, though, if everything is expanded.post-8528-1231025282_thumb.jpg

Likely needs an extra query or two in order to fill the latest Posts fields. Hence the lag.And even fully expanded it takes forever to scroll down.What about reducing the count to 15 or 20 instead of thrty? or adding another column to the page? I really do not need/want to expand all the Sub-boards. I don't do any of the Gamers stuff, for example, so I prefer to collapse those Boards.

Is it better now?

Is it better now?

Performance has increased, now establishing connection within 3-6 seconds, but i noticed the latest posts section doesn't show the latest poster; it instead shows the topic starter. I think it would be better if you just increased the latest replies in the top 10 stats and removed the latest posts (and perhaps change "top 10 stats" with "forum stats" or something else without a number). This would reduce repetitiveness.
Performance might increase further if these areas were hidden from guests or users that aren't logged in.
