I miss the quick reply box at the end of each page though.

I've just enabled quick reply in all of the forums.

Very cool. Thank-you.

The new forum will take you to the last message you read in
each forum -- not by time/date -- so you don't have to read
the entire site at each visit!  Nevermind that the last-read
broke down completely under the old forum.

I don't care about avatars,  animatios, whirlydohickies, etc.
I like to follow threads and read posts.  This software works
well.

scott - I'm so glad you pointed that out... I can't believe I didn't articulate the details of this feature before....

this is what I like most about this forum software... you'll probably find that you'll change your habits based on this feature...

the old forum would obviously show you the latest posts, but it was based on a time frame... but with the new forums, you can tell at a glance wether or not an entire forum has new posts or not... see the screenshot below:



the Software forum has new posts, but the Accessories doesn't.

Now, once you're in a forum, you can easily keep track of new posts by two things, by the different shade of the mail icon, and by the little icon with the down arrow next to the topic title.

If you click on the little icon with the down arrow, it will take you to the next new message you read in the forum, as you pointed out.



So what I usually do to keep on top of posts, is to visit the forums that I generally read, and click on that little icon for each thread that I want to keep up with. I find this much easier than having to look at a seperate block with recent posts on the homepage... but maybe that's just me.

Hope this helps a few people understand why I like this forum so much.

I miss the opening page with the 'recent posts'. It's certainly useable though -just less convenient.

So do i...

Plus old links from post to post (or from google) are not usable anymore. Any luck this might change ?

One comment though, I don't see any way to add an image attachment to a message (i.e. for a screenshot), am I just missing it? As I said before, it's growing on me, I like it far more today than I did yesterday.

I finally figured out how to allow members to upload/attach to posts... it should work fine now.

Registered members are allowed to attache files up to 2mb. If anyone thinks this should be increased, just let me know how much you think it should be and why.

I know this has been said many times, but I really miss the "recent posts" on the main page.

Sure, I can click on the "view new posts" at the top right hand corner of the forum page, but I have to log in to do that. What I want to do is to have a quick glance of what's happening and log in only when I find an intersting post. This may seem trivial unless you have a ~36K GPRS connection like me.

Just my 2 cents worth.

offroadgeek:

is it possible to simply place a "New Posts" button (http://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...ch&CODE=getnew) on the main page?

Would not solve the issue completely but save one large mouse movement across the screen, one click and one intermediate page to transfer for prokaryx.

prokaryx:
you could try to bookmark the cited link.

At the main forum page,

http://www.oesf.org/forums/

go to the bottom, then look right above the "Board Statistics" title bar. Click 'Today's Active Topics". You do not have to be logged in.

Thanks, Miami_Bob and dhns! However, I don't consider these solutions as elegant as having the "recent posts" on the main page. Oh well, just my personal preference.

OK... I know this isn't *exactly* the same as what we had before, but know you can see the 10 most recent posts on the main page.

I would still prefer to see the most recent posts on the main ZUG page in a more simple text format... like the old one... I know this can be done... and I'll continue to work on it until it works.

In the mean time, I've created a simple page for those who simply want to look at the 15 most recent posts on a page, and nothing else. This might be helpful for those on dial up. All of the posts link just fine to the forum.

So if you like this, just bookmark the following link:

http://www.zaurususergroup.com/recent.php

as always, please share your thoughts/feedback

Thanks!

It's crazy smile.gif Too much data and it pushes the news posts too far down.

I also agree - that 1 line per message / latest 25 messages view was great (and according to the KISS principle).
