Any way to get list of forums with new topics added? Answered

I had posted this as a bug, but maybe there's a way to do it which I just don't know. Normally, the summary of forums shows you the most recent comment made to an existing topic in each forum (as shown).

Is there any way to modify the URL !https://www.instructables.com/community so that instead we see the most recently added topic? If a topic hasn't yet had any replies, there's no way to know about it without stepping through each forum individually.

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Click "View All" and then click "topics" in the grey bar on the top. The stickied topics will be shown on the top, followed by recent topics. Is that what you mean?

Yes and no. This method does show you the topics sorted by creation time, but you lose any information about which Forum contains each topic (I really don't care about K'nex stuff :-). I guess there's no way to get this information organized the same way that the "community/" page itself is presented.

Yes, SplinterCell gave me the same link (by description, rather than by URL). As I noted, it does show all the zero-reply topics, but you lose the information about which forum/group they belong to.
