Show new threads?
« on: May 27, 2006, 02:55:32 PM »
Is there a way to see just new threads since last visit - not individual posts, just the headings for the threads?

Is there a cheat sheet for the codes used for things like colours, lists, spoilers, etc., all in one place?

Thanks...

forum help: http://www.donationc...ction=help;page=post
(i really need to make a link to that forum help somewhere)

as for unread threads - the closest is a Recent Threads list, found in the top box where it says Greetings XXXX,
look for the link "Show recent topics".

Yes, please!  It's the sort of thing it would be nice to have unobtrusively at the top of every forum page.

Yes, but, that shows individual posts.  I wanted a way to be made aware of completely new threads I hadn't seen before, and which I might easily miss if they aren't very busy, as the Recent Threads list only shows 10 items.

Thanks...

I wonder if he is looking at the RSS feeds - the recent topics there only show 10 items. (You can alter that by editing the RSS feed URL)

I don't seem to have been very clear.  Try again.

I'd like to see a list of threads that had been started since one's last visit.  Just the thread titles and links, not details of individual messages.
