This behaviour is the same on mobile and desktop versions of the site. The list, if it must be shown (and I doubt anyone needs it) should be by default collapsed, with an arrow to expand it.

 I do not have a "View New Content" button, I have (and use) "New Posts" (Right hand side below "search") and do not have the same huge list - it goes straight into the list of new posts since my last visit.

I set up my own custom VNC Activity Stream some time ago when the default VNC was not working. That still has the compact header, but if I try the default VNC I get my screen filled as others have.

 

It's not just the unnecessary huge list of boards that is disappointing, it's the whole layout o the home screen with its acres of wasted space.

 

I've commented on it many times over the years but I think its a function of the forum software rather than how the technical mods have it configured. I think the Invision programmers assume everyone views the forum on a 26" desktop monitor.

I watch it on a 22"desktop monitor, and it takes up the entire screen. Very annoying, and completely uneccessary

Are you using the default VNC or your own custom VNC...?  A custom one does not have the comments added that the default has and it looks like something has changed to start displaying the comments.

I am not tech savvy?? I doubt I would no how to customise anything?? although I may have followed some good advice back in time you gave about how to do it. I do recall Ive set mine so the Politics section isnt accessed with VNC, I have that seperate.

This has happened before, either that or something changed in the Matrix :D 

You can scroll down the Technical & Account Support category and find similar quite easily.

Might need turning off and back on again.

Don’t start thinking about the Scotch skeleton singing “re-record not fade away” then ;)

Looks to me like you're getting the same as everyone else, but you have slimmed down the number of forums that you get stuff from?
