    I really liked the new portal with the different sections for DS, GBA, Wii and Homebrew... But now it's gone? I see each news item seperately like the old portal... What happened?

    lol, no it hasn't gone. I think you need to change the skin etc. you are using in your control panel.

    Speaking of the new portal....

    I have some questions..

    a) you can not use the old style and filter content?
    b) when using the new style and filtering content, anyone notice that items are not listed newest on top and oldest on bottom, that sometime they skip. like a news item will stay on top and a new rom listing that came in later will be under it? is this a bug or by design?

    I want to be able to filter the content, see things in newest on top order, and perferably not see the "related" topics under each listing (this may not be available..)

    so what can i do?

    I tried changing the skin and then changing it back, but I'm still not getting the "new" portallayout anymore, where there are separate blocks fo each category. I liked it that way, as this way things tend to run right off the page in a matter of hours.

    You need to switch to the new portal in your profile AND make sure you have filled in the portal preferences, eg: General, Homebrew, NDS, Wii, GBA

    If those preferences aren't filled in you'll have troubles.

    I wonder why it changed in the first place.
