a couple of suggestions

Postby MartreCycle » Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:54 am

Hello - is it possible on the main forum list page to have the option to order the forums by last post date ?
this feature is available within the actual individuals forums ?

Is it possible to update the News and event picture on the web site - the current picture on is somewhat winter-ish ?
thank you

On title page, if you click on "view active topics", the most recent topics come up in order. If you then bookmark that page you can go straight to it.

The site would be better if any new posts automatically sent that discussion topic to the top of the listing.
Many a time have I become interested in a new topic only because it appeared at the top and in full view, I fear many interesting and less well know information posts will now be hidden away from view.
However its not my website and thanks for putting it together anyway.

"View active topics" doesn't show active topics from all sections. (I think it did at the start.) When working that's the key page of the forum IMO.

the "view active topics"and "view new posts" - should show you the latest threads that have been posted on since you last logged in (i think you need to be logged in to view these though) - it's just a quick way to see the most recent activity on the forum - also, at the bottom of the active threads page - there is a drop down box which is set at a default of 7 days - just select another time frame (say 1 month) and it will show you all active topics for the last 4 weeks ;)

if there are particular threads that you are interested in following - you can subscibe to them - and you'll be notified each time a post has been made on that thread

When I view active topics, I don't get Oldclaypaws post from today on "Low impact removal of big trees? ". This was posted today. Is there some glitch?

i think (i don't know for sure) that "active topics" need at least one (if not 2 or more) replies on it - before it becomes "active" - active being busy / popular

that thread does appear under the "new posts" option ;)

hmm - having compared the active v's new post options today - there does seem to be a glitch - as some posts which have had many views and / or multiple replies don't appear on the active posts listing - maybe it's something admin can look into :?

Perhaps using View unread posts will work better for you. See my post http://www.swog.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1240.
