View Active topics.. or not

If you go to the board index page, one of the links near the top is "view active topics" I have followed this link before, and always got no results, leading me to believe is was broken, but if you follow the link now, you get the thread where Jim announced the resurrection of the forum, and if you select a longer time period, you get various threads in the "fallen heroes" forum.

So I suspect that the forum is just slightly misconfigured not to include all forums in the active topic search.

So when an administrator has some time on their hands, they might want to fiddle with the settings a bit.

Phpbb changed its settings as part of one of the previous updates so now each forum needs to be set to appear in active topics results. As this is the standby server that setting hasn't been activated so I've now added a few forums.

Thanks, it is much more useful now, I would suggest that all subforums should be included, well at least this one.
