Unread/Aggregated Topics/Forums
« on: November 07, 2010, 09:16:06 PM »
Is there a way to extend this: http://www.donationc...n=unread;all;start=0

i.e. To have more there?

Or is there an aggregated forum with all topics from all forums?

I just don't see it right now.

i'm confused -- what are you wanting?  The Unread posts list shows posts you haven't read.. somehow you want it to show you "more" than that?

there are two links at top for unread posts -- one for all posts you have not read, and one for just new since last visit.

I'm not sure if you've seen "aggregated forums" before. What it does is literally aggregate all threads from all forums into a single forum. It's a '1-stop-shop' for things. It really makes reading many forums MUCH easier and faster. i.e. Instead of browsing to 20 different forums, or more, you only need to click maybe 2x to go to the second, and maybe the third page (regular paging) of the aggregated forum threads. It cuts down on clicking and gives you everything all at once.

The thing is that the "Unread Posts" page doesn't have paging, so you only get the top 20 (or whatever) threads, i.e. Page 1 or page 1.

Of course it has paging.
Are you clicking the proper Unread Posts page, which is: http://www.donationc...hp?action=unread;all

Very odd. I only have 1 page. But yes, that's the page I was using, which is why I asked (only 1 page there).

Exactly. I can't believe that I've read everything except for 1 page of threads.

If you have pressed the "Mark all as unread" button that clears the list, so maybe you did that recently?
Or maybe visiting the "Unread since last visit" clears the list?

Jeezz, I've got 116 pages to get through.....someone will probably hit me with Thread Necromancer tag if I start replying.

If you have pressed the "Mark all as unread".....

I think if there was a button marked that you would end having every post marked as unread.....it would make my 116 pages look like a Sunday afternoon book.

Possibly Mark all as Read is what you meant :P

Addendum: OK, that's strange - I had 110 pages, I selected all the threads on the last page (110), and then clicked Marked Selected Read.  I then had 1 page with 6 threads, refreshed it twice, still the same - refreshed again and I'm back to 109 pages.

yeah there's a bug there if you mark one page as read things go a bit funny...

I think there may be something buggy in there. I just went to the page, and I have fewer (about eight) topics now where I had about 20 or so before. I've never used the "mark all as read" link either. Is there a 2 day limit on "new" topics listed in there? Dunno. Just seems like something is very off.

After resetting, and after half a day, it seems to be behaving nicer. Another 2 days and we'll know for sure.
