New Latest 100 Topics Page!

Postby Scepcop » 03 Nov 2012, 20:26

I've just installed a new page showing the latest 100 forum topics. This page makes browsing easier because you don't have to go into each forum board one at a time to find the latest topics. Instead, you can see them all one one convenient page, which makes finding them easier as well, since you can use the page search function to find topics directly.

The link to it is in the top header under the banner.

Will that work substantially differently than the active topics page which is what I bookmark to? search.php?search_id=active_topics

I didn't know there was an active topics page. lol

Oh well. I guess the only difference is that the active topics page has less topics than the 100 topics page, which has 100. lol

Ok I see the Active Topics link now. It is very small and can only be seen on the index page. It is too small and not very noticeable. How about I put a link to it at the top under the banner next to the other links? That way, everyone can see it easily.

Ok I just put up an Active Topics link at the top under the banner. Hope it helps make the browsing experience better.

I read EVERY single thread and EVERY single post...twice. It's the only way to find the spambombs.

Thanks, but don't spend too much time looking for them. If they post once or twice, it can't hurt us since I set links here to rel="nofollow". If they post more than that, you will eventually notice anyway. You are the best mod I ever had though. :)

Btw, I also added a "View Your Posts" link above under the banner as well, since that's another important browsing page which shows the topics you've posted in so you can check responses. I know there already is a "View Your Posts" link in the black menu bar above, but it's harder to see up there. This way it's easier for everyone to see and part of the row of key browsing links above.

What I would like would be a link showing when one of my post has been responded to with a quote. I hate to miss feedback. Is there such a link that I have not found? (or understood! I am a dunce at interpreting info that is not presented in Gutenberg mode)

The only way I know of to do that would be to click "View Your Posts" and see if your post was responded to. Or you can try subscribing to a thread, but I'm not sure how you do that. Try clicking the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box below the post form.

Update:

I just cleaned up the latest 100 topics page by reordering it to look neater. Instead of having "Last post by username" on every single line next to every topic, I put a "Last post by" column header on the right side and had it display the last poster's username below it. That way, it looks cleaner and neater and not as repetitive. Check it out. It looks much better now.
