May I make a Suggestions RE: View New Posts

#1 Post by brooksy » Sun Oct 18, 2009 2:57 pm

Everytime I use this feature of the site (a very good one i might add) i go and read the various new posts. However, once into a post the option of clicking on view new posts disapears so you have to back out to the start so you can view all new posts again, to move on to read the next new post.

Now am I missing something or is this a feature which can be added to enhance user interface?

Thanks guys.

I use the View Active Topics with the same situation.
Having to go back to the index does mean extra clicks to get back into the posts.
If only viewing and reading then the back button on the browser is fine. Once making a post you do end up going back to the main index and then back into the posts. A hassle maybe but life threatening I think not.
It should be possible for the menu links to be displayed on all pages. Need a Geek to examine please, least save ware and tear on keyboard or mouse.

Or click on view new posts as you normally would and once you have the full list in front of you, hold down the control button while you click on the ones you wish to read. All the ones you click on will open up in there own seperate tab without you having to go back and when your finished, they will be all ready there for you to read...make sense ? :snic:

I have the "view active topics" as my bookmark.
All I have to do is open the bookmark/favourites and click on "view active topics" and there I am complete with any new posts !!

I'm with Physhopath on this one - on the Macs you can have a 'favourites bar' with specific Favs or folders with multiple Favs in it. I have KFDU View Active Topics on the bar on its own, so after posting or viewing I either just go back a page, or click on the Active Topics link. Works for me! :D

Just tried that trick on the Mac, Adrian .... you learn something new every day! :D On the Mac you use the "Apple" key tho

Thanks for all the suggestions but I really think it would be easier for newbies to have a hot link on the web pages tool bar. One click and you are back in the view new topics area with all the ones already read marked off.

Thanks David, we have marked your suggestion to be looked at with our next upgrade of the forum software. At present the current software permissions and our "add ons" won't allow this modification to occur. Thanks for the suggestion, it is really appreciated.

Regards

Al
