How do you mean? Like topics people replied to instead of recently created?

Is there even a mobile site?
I've accessed the forum on my smartphone and my two tablets, honestly it looks almost exactly the same as the full Desktop experience, just downscaled.

It changes bit in layout for lower resolution and mobile.

I do agree that recent should be more up. But I doubt they will change it. Not soon at least.

Ah I see, just checked again on my phone, the Recent Topics section is somehow completely at the bottom, under the currently online members...
It's technically in the Sidebar on the desktop, so I guess it makes sense that it isn't part of the main content, but it's a bit overblown to have it way at the bottom for those who rely on that to find the most recent topics. (even if I personally never use it and just block it with adblock on my desktop for the forum to scale up to the entire screen.)

But then, the people who want to use the forums will complain that the forums should be at the top.

Also, if we move recent topics, the video block will also move to the top, and that wouldn't be good. I do agree that recent topics is a bit out of the way, but I don't think the alternatives are any better.

He is, requesting the desktop site does approximately nothing, sadly.

can you make the recent when you press a post bigger?

When you press the Fourms button on the top it shows 10 recent topics

but when you press a post theres only 5,

That was intentional, to prevent the sidebar from being quite as tall on topics (which can be really short themselves).

It can be changed, and I will think about it.

There's no way for us to reorder the blocks on mobile without messing up the desktop view.

If you use firefox and enable "request desktop site", it will work, but otherwise, no.

Would it be possible to add quick link to recent topic into sidebar/top bar? That might solve issue for most people. Having that in tab and refreshing it time-to-time is still good alternative imo.

Mobile sidebar under Community would be link that brings Recent topics page up directly. While not same thing, it would make it less scrolling.

That could work, but I don't think it would be practical to add unfortunately.
