Forum: managing new posts

Postby marianomarini » Thu Dec 27, 2012 2:59 am

I hope this is the correct place to ask, since topic title is so general.
My litle problem is managing new posts.
I'm use to go to unread posts, look at the list, choose one that I want read, then return to unread posts and repeat the process until I've no more interested post.
Eventually mark the remaining (if so) unread posts as read!
Right now, I need to pass from Board Index to perform each task (except from list to read post). It's this mandatory?

This very issue has been discussed in a private moderator forum, so you're not alone in noticing that with phpBB the ability to view unread posts often takes one more click than it did under vBulletin. Those who manage the site have been asked to consider making this option more visible.

In the meantime, note that the View unread posts link is simply a link, which can be bookmarked. Even under vBulletin, I had a bookmark on my browser's bookmarks bar that I could use to go straight to the unread posts view, even if I wasn't even on the LDSTech site. When we switched to phpBB, I simply updated that bookmark, so no matter where I am, the unread posts view is one click away.

It would really be nice to see "search.php?do=getdaily" brought back it always showed post from the last 24 hours no matter.
