Active Threads?

#1

Post by Warbird Kid »

One thing I loved about the last version of the forum was the "Active Threads" option at the top of the page that allowed you to see what pages were getting updated across the entire site. It made seeing what was active so much easier vs going into every individual thread.

Is there any chance to see that added to this version of the forum? Thanks

I:ll have a look, there was one module that provided a lot more stats on the homepage, this might offer further insight.

The prelockdown format isn't available in the updated software - in fact we where quite luckily it worked at all and weimped along with all those warning messages.

The new version of the software has new styles. I think the one we have is a reasonable blend of some legacy influences with a newook and additianl features.

Iln the interim/alternatives there are two options you could explore.

1) Quick links - Unread posts (takes you to the last unread post in a thread/topic) - persoy this is the option I use most of the time.

Or, you could yius the visual aid;

2) the icon for the forum/topic/hread turns orange if it has been updated, if it's very active it turns to an orange flame...

or

3) use Quick Links - Active Topics :lol:
