New posts button.

Post by G Uest »

Glad to be back :D :D :D

I can't see a "New posts" on the forum. Have I missed it?
It would save having to trawl through all the threads to find latest news.

If it's there and I'm blind then many apologies

Are these what you mean?

Admittedly the red ones on the forum list are very subtle. These are the default ones and I will get them changed to the yelllow. Changing all of those icons so they are more clear is on the todo list.

If you mean highlighting new posts within a thread itself, not sure how to do that and would have to look into it.

Other forums on the same board as this have a single button titled "new posts". Click that and a full list of new posts in all threads appears. I can't see how to upload an image without having my own website so my description might not be the best.

Edit, Imgur is my friend.
Here you can see a single button that will bring up all new posts. Saves trawling back and forth to the main index and looking at individual threads.

I'm far from a geek and have no idea how it is done. It may not be possible on here.

On the top right of the board - click "Quick links" and select new posts or unread posts.
