What's New doesn't update with a page refresh

Well it wouldn't be too difficult to change the code so the url isn't tied to the last id.

That's the point I was making.

I expect a lot of people will be caught out by this as they will expect a page refresh to return the latest results.

Well, it's good and bad. For one, it's quite important for caching as it's not the easiest thing to generate on a big board. But more significantly, if you try to navigate to different pages, the snapshot doesn't move on you. If you have a busy site and go to page 2 of the thread list, it's very easy to miss things as they get moved around.

Cheers Mike, I can understand why you've done it the way you have but it may catch a few users out.

In retrospect, I shouldn't have posted this in Bug Reports as it's clearly programmed behaviour, as I intimated in my opening post.

Possibly a mod/admin could move it to a different forum.

The news-feed with an ajax refresh and alert refresh, I wouldn't mind :)
