Is there a way in this spiffy forum software to just see all the threads at once, sorted by most recent activity? (I'm used to using that sort of view in various other places that I hang out; like the RecentChanges page on your typical Wiki, say.) Apologies if it's a button that's sitting somewhere in plain site... *8) DC

In the upper left corner of the Forum Index, there's a link to "View Posts Since Last Visit" or similar text...

Hi DC . . . =)

In the upper right corner (right above the Search button) you'll see a link that says "View Posts Since Last Visit (#)" (# being the number of posts made since your last visit). If you click this, you'll get a listing of all the post across the board that have been posted. In the results page, each item will be a link so you just need to click on the ones you're interested in to access. =)

Regards,

Tx very! Is there a way to reset what it considers the time of my "last visit", so it'll show me (say) all the posts in the last N days, even if it thinks that I've visited just milliseconds ago? (And/or is there like a traditional RSS feed of the entire forum content or something like that?)

Greedily,
DC

Hi DC . . . =D

I don't have the board setup to do an RSS feed (yet - I plan on adding that at some point =)

Also, I plan to implement a "top list" feature soon which should show all recent topics at the top of the board's index (which if I understand correctly is what you're looking for). =)

Regards,

Exquisite, thanks! For now I'm just using "posts since last visit", but given my sloppy habits *8) it'd also be very nice to have "all posts from all forums and boards mooshed together and listed most recent first". That way if somehow I don't manage to read all the interesting posts since my last visit before the "last visit" time gets updated (like, I go off and actually do some work or something!), I still have some hope of not missing stuff. But obviously it's not Incredibly Urgent; you can finish playing The Sims 2 first. (Spot the oxymoron!) *8)
