Advanced Forum Browsing
« on: August 07, 2019, 05:09:40 pm »
If you are new to the forum or have not logged in for some time, the number of unread threads can be daunting.

This is what I suggest you do as a new member or if you have not logged in for ages.

- Click on the red “UNREAD” button at the top right of the home page
- The click “Mark ALL messages as read”

The next time you refresh the page or login, click on the red “UNREAD” button at the top right of the home page.

This will just highlight threads that have been updated since the last time you clicked the “UNREAD” button

You can read the ones you are interested in, then click “Mark ALL messages as read”

You can obviously free-style browse the whole forum however you want.

I sometimes accidentally bump the mark all messages as read. I just did now. It would be cool if if asked, "are you sure you want to mark all messages as read? Yes or no? @The Web Minions

If it's something really worth seeing it will pop up again pretty quick. Plus if your looking for something specific just check the thread you're after

I struggle with this too, and would appreciate that feature. I think it would need to already exist as an option within the software however.

Make it a toggle not default setting if it is a change. Let user opt in/out.

@Filthy I hate it when that happens! I support that idea of an "are you sure" warning.
