I like the look of the new forum and also think it is much easier to navigate than the old one was. There are a couple of things I would like to find out about though.

1. In the recent posts tab, is it possible to have the menu show the category the thread is from? As an example, I cannot use the Igridd applet (my boss won't let me download it) so I have no real interest in reading the posts in that section of the forum. With the current setup of the menu I don't know what category the post is in until I click on it.

2. On the old forum I had the option to view the threads with the most recent posts at the top, I can't find a way to do this on the new forum. I prefer to have the new posts at the top so that I don't have to scroll down through all the posts I have previously read.

If those two things are possible I will be a very happy Griddler emoticon .

Recent Posts:
If you click on the link under the column Last Post it'll take you directly to the last post submitted.

View Threads options:
There are three ways to view a thread - Combination View, Flat View, Tree View:



I use Combination View because it allows me to see the real way people answered to each other. Also, if I visited this thread before and a new post is submitted - only the new line will be in bold. Clicking this line directs me down to that post. If it is a long topic I use the little TOP arrow to browse up/down the thread.

I've just posted a reply to LadyRose59 and dreamtheater (above). My reply has images, colored lines and text in bold. I got the reply through the email and it looks exactly the same as in the forum. It also gave me the following details:
---------------------------------------------------------------
New message has been posted in Your Thoughts
Submitted by: hagitm
Subject: RE: The new forum! - Recent Posts
---------------------------------------------------------------
I know it is a reply and not a new thread because of the "RE". I know the category, and the author of the post.

For me, it is easier to organize my life through the email. It saves me time to visit web pages just to check up things. Question is - should I add all the forums to my watch list? For me the answer is YES. For everyone else - just select the forums that interest you.

I love this new thing we have in the forum! emoticon

Yes, you will. If someone asked to get help in solving a puzzle and edited their post because they managed to proceed with it, or even solve it completely within an hour - you will know.

The email's subject will clears it. e.g.:
New message has been posted in Your ThoughtsA message has been edited in iGridd Applet - Suggestion Box


bullfrosch:

The post gets a time stamp once it is submitted. The one hour starts from that time stamp.

One thing that I forgot to mention in my previous post to this topic is my thoughts on how this new forum seems to take its time loading topics that have a lot of posts in it. In short, I'm not too impressed with that. emoticon

It seems that the more posts a topic contains, the longer it takes to load, which gives me the impression that the forum's loading them all in even though it's only going to show you so many at a time. :idea: IMHO, when a user opens a topic, only those posts on the first page should be loaded. Then if the user decides to go to the next page, only then should the next pageful of posts be loaded at that time. And so on with the next page and the next and... :idea:

On a Web site, speed and appearance are everything, and if you can make this new forum appear to be snappier by not making it do work that it doesn't have to, everyone will have a much nicer experience for it. :thumbleft: :thumbright:

Hi Luweewu,

I'm afraid you are right about this forum loading all posts from one topic at once. The point is, it does not paginate at all. This is not possible for now - I have no idea if it can be changed in the future. The only solution is to split topics that become too long, like we did for the topsolvers lists.

My experience the last few days about the loading time were really bad. It took ages to open all topics, even those with only a few messages. Most topics didn't even open at all, I just got the disclaimer lines (bottom of the page). Today however, everything is working the way it should. I hope it stays that way.

Now there is.
Go to the main forum page. The Actions button has a new option - Mark as Read. You can mark all post as read for each category.

Please be patient the first time you do it because the system needs to mark several thousands of posts as read.

The blue corners on the inactive fill-in boxes on the composing screen are very interesting. I've never seen anything that subtle before emoticon

For future consideration: Once you've got the new forum all ironed out and shiny do you think you could add navigation links to the bottoms of the pages? I loved that in the old forum, and the "top^" links only go to the top message (understandably), not to the top of page.

Thanks!

JC

P.S., you might also consider changing "Save" on the composition screen to "post message" or "submit" or something. "Save" keeps making me think it means save draft, and it took me at least a minute on my first post to even decide it was the right button--and I've been online since before the PC or Apple.

Well, yeah, but more the category tree, or whatever you call it, and the tabs. The thread control is blind, rather than indexed, and only marginally useful. But then, I hate the next buttons on e-mail too and open messages from the index, so I might be in the minority. I used to use the tree on the old forum all the time emoticon On this one, I seem to be using the tabs more. I was using the thread control at first and that's when I got really lost and unhappy emoticon Now I'm not so lost or unhappy, but I spend a lot of time scrolling.

Well, it's actually not at all what I had in mind, but it's very nice! I also like that now when clicking through from Recent Posts in combined view it shows the place in the thread tree rather than going straight to the start of the thread. That's really useful!! And also that the "top" link goes to the top of the thread tree instead of the first message. That's much more useful. And it's a short scroll from there to the category tree thingie and the tabs at the top, which makes navigating a long topic much easier emoticon With all these updates I think it's at least as easy to navigate as the old forum now, probably a lot more.

Many thanks!!

When reading the recent posts, I sometimes would like to know how long ago they were written, but have to go back to the home page to find out the time.
