View Active Topic selection options

Unread postby Dicko » Mon Nov 03, 2014 7:06 pm

Hi Niels,

I have noticed on other forums the "View active topics" option appears on a list above the window that actually shows the posts within the topic.
On this forum the only time the option occurs to VIEW ACTIVE TOPIC is when you go back to BOARD INDEX.
Can these options that appear on the BOARD INDEX page be made available on the post page?

Presently I am using the " back" button on my browser to go to the " view active topic" but because it is the back button it does not refresh the content and if I have posted myself in the topic it only takes me back to my post.

I hope you can understand what I am trying to say

Cheers

If I understand correctly you would like the four "quick" links from the homepage on every page? If that's all I don't see why I won't do that for you ;)

Yes that is what I mean...

That would be great if you would Niels,

Thanks mate. :cheers:

Yes, Dicko :) I already looked at it, but I'm trying to fit it in nicely.

I will add it temporarily next to the "View your posts" in the white header box until I find the time to alter the design a bit more drastic.

That is great Niels,

The position that you have placed it is exactly the same as the Caravanning forum I am on as well. :cheers:

If you feel that there is a better spot then go for it mate.
Another spot could be at the bottom of the post page.
I participate in a Toyota Forum that has a link on the bottom and that works well.

Thanks Niels.

:cheers: :beer:

Looks like the "mark topics as read" button has disappeared now.
It was at the top right of the index page.
Each time I login I click "view unread posts", open the ones I wish to read in new tabs, then click back page in the browser so I can mark the rest as read.
I had meant to ask if it could be moved or added to the view unread posts page but thought it may be more hassle for you than it was worth.
But since it's gone missing, any chance of popping it in there?

I will put it back on the homepage, but give me a few days as I'm a bit under the weather.

I've put the "Mark forums read" link back to the homepage.
