Getting to the New Posts

Post by dcampbell on Sun 06 May 2018, 8:11 pm

Is there any way to "View new posts" like there was on the old forum? Or, for that matter, an option to jump to the unread posts within a given thread?

The best method is to use the, "View posts since last visit," link that's in tiny letters, top-right of the home page.

There's also a, "Latest Topics," widget on the Portal page. That can also be embedded on every page of the forum as well.

You can jump to the unread posts in a thread by clicking on the little arrow to the left of the thread title.

Thanks, The Call of the Wendigo. It says "View newest post" but it does indeed appear to mean "View first unread post" like on the old forum.

I'm gonna bitch and say there's not much personality to the index page; can it be sexed up?

Give me some ideas and I'll see what I can do. Bear in mind I've only just launched it, so it'll be added to over the next few weeks...

Not knowing how it works, having pics on those pages would be a boon.

How about dedicated Trek and Marvel sub-forums? They can't get less posts than The X-Files...

A tactic would be add this to your bookmarks:

It's possible for Anorak to add that as a link in the toolbar at the top of the page, to give everyone easy access.

When I give Wendigo karma, her score remains at 1.

I've just done the same and with the same result. There's clearly something odd going on.

Considering what's happening, Wendigo should be the karma leader by now.

It may be that Anorak has set it up so that members need a certain number of posts and/or karma for their karma-giving to count.

He may also have set it so that each user can only give a limited amount of karma each day.

But you have to brute-force search all your posts to find out which one has got the green bar.
