new posts

When I visit I get a message that there are (X) new posts. When I click I can see 5 and no way to view the rest is visible. After viewing a few of them the number disappears.

The number of unread posts in the header of the first page is missing since yesterday. Only new and today's postings are selectable. Also "mark all read" is missing as there is no list of unread anymore.
Good news "I still have the light scheme" ;-)

OK, there's still a few things that Duffy overlooked when he recreated the light theme. There is still hope though since he can add those things that are missing. The, "mark all forums read" is still at the bottom of the page though in both schemes.

When I'm on the main index page and in the dark scheme,I show a number by "view unread posts (n)". If I click on it, I show a list of threads where I could have several unread posts in which is higher than the number of threads displayed in the unread post list since it displays threads, not posts. For example, I clicked on one thread on my list where there was 6 unread posts in, and went back to the index page, and the count dropped by the same number (6) as there were unread posts in that thread.

The "view new posts" item is totally in question about what constitutes a "new" post, or how far back it goes. We have no setting that we can change that. "View Today's Posts" and, "View Unread Posts" are the two that I use. You know, you can always click on our logo (which incidentally, was upgraded a few days ago), to get to our index page. Some people also use the "Portal" page to get here. Personally, I'm so use to not having it from our previous software, that I forget it's there.

Anyway, the bottom line is that I'll talk to Duffy and let him know about the missing links. I know that he had to delete and recreate the "Big Blue light" scheme yesterday, and he most likely missed a few of these add-on links in doing so.

I'm not sure what the issue is. The Number Of Unread Posts (x) link appears for me on both themes. By recreating the light theme, it shouldn't have effected that link. Only thing I can suggest is (if you haven't already done this) is select the dark theme and reelect the light theme. Maybe it just needs a kick in the head with a ball-peen hammer.

BTW, I've added the Mark All Forums Read link to the header of the main index page for easier access.

Yeah, we're OK now, but earlier the "View Unread Posts" did not appear in the light theme. It does now though. Applause As for how it works, I think I covered that already....
