Top right you will see "Quick Links" which has a link to the Unread messages or new posts.

The latest messages on the main page was a custom script which is not working on the new forum yet, but we are looking at fixing that.

The latest messages on the main page should be working again on the new forum

I was just going to complain about the forum not working well with tapatalk anymore, but then I noticed that in fact, it works well by itself on my phone.

So now I can uninstall tapatalk again :-)
Nice job!

New Tapatalk hasn't caught up to PHPBB as of yet. I couldn't post anything while the cable modem was down.

It's not my first choice either, but thank you to Bitmask for getting something here other than that snow blind default PHPBB theme and for rebuilding the front page so we can get the latest 10 messages showing again. As for for why the change happened, there are some factors involved.

1st, the development team at PHPBB made changes in their software that broke all themes and extensions with their software. So everyone that develops for PHPBB needs to update their products.

2nd, I don't believe the old forum theme, called Solaris, is updated by it's author anymore. I've reached out to him and sent an message through his sites contact form.

Let's see what happens.
