Default Forum Gets a New Look

I'm pretty much the run of the mill user. Log in, hit "new posts", to capture what I have missed, read the interesting, non controversial topics, hit "new posts" again to see if something posted while I was reading, then "mark forums read". Been doing this for years and years.

I can't put a date on it, but sometime in the last year or so, not all threads with new posts show up with "new posts". I am only aware of new posts because I am subscribed to that particular thread and can follow the link in the email to get in. I don't know of any ignore thread option that I might have hit in error.

Anyone else seen this?

Nice Don,

Love the new "statistics" bar that is at the top of the forum when you first log in now. It enlightened me to see, though I know I comment (post) too much, it's seems a far cry from Rattlesnake Gal !!

I view the forum in the same manner as you, using the "New Posts" option. For a time, posts in threads in the Lake Issues sub-forum did not show up, so I would have to go to that section individually. Then for the last year or so, all posts showed up under "New Posts", including the threads in the Lake Issues section.

And thanks to you for mentioning this, I just noticed that the new posts in the Lake Issues sub-forum no longer show up when I click New Posts.

I've been testing that module and I took it down so I could make a few small changes. I wasn't sure if members would like it or if it just introduced more clutter. I'll reactivate it now and keep it running if you like it. Only members who are logged in can see it.

I normally go to Quick Links and then Today's Posts. I see that the new module has a direct link to Today's Posts so this is one less step.
And after choosing Today's Posts the statistics module goes away.

So I'm good with the new module, a quick status summary and a direct link to new posts.

It doesn't really go away, it only shows on the main forum index page. If you return there you'll see it.

I think it is a great idea. One thing I dislike about forums is the difficulty of seeing your own thread that you start or are part of. An easy reference to any of this information when you log in is a great!

Is it possible to list forum members by date joined? Like and oldest to newest member?

You can't go straight to "New Posts" in your browser anyway, so a click on "Lake Issues" will allow you to click on "New Posts" without delay.

I use the following URL to instantly initiate the forum from my browser's toolbar and, for the most part, ignore "Lake Issues".

Thanks APS, I have been missing lots Who would have guessed clicking new posts only checks certain forum threads. I'll be loading every section and do new posts from now on, going to burn a lot of bytes and reaching EOL a lot faster.....
