Anyone notice the new Forum feature?


#1

We made what I think is a big improvement to the forums. If you go to the forum home page you’ll notice the order of the forums changes dynamically now, with the forum receiving the latest post being on top, the second newest post below that and so forth. It really is nice IMHO.

Once you get used to it, let us know what you think.

Yes, I like it very much. If the same could be done within each forum category that would be great too.


#3

I like the idea, but it is not happening as of now. The main page still has non-chronological listing. I’m reading this on an iPad with Safari, if that matters.


#4

Are we seeing the same thing? Works perfectly for me. Look at this picture. You see from top to bottom the latest posts.

I tried logging in from my computer rather than my iPad, and I now see the new arrangement by most recent date. Don’t know why the iPad does not show this.

But–on my computer the section below the list of forums, where I have seen recently updated/unread posts, has now disappeared. Was this removed in the belief that users could find new posts just by looking at the now-chronological list of forums?


#6

Yes, I thought it was confusing. Do you want it back?


#7

Yes please, or at least the option to display it. TIA!


#8

Got it. The programmer’s been asked to add it as an option.

I believe that is now the case. Please check.

Well I noticed that I cant find a freaking thing and have no idea where I left off reading b4 the change. I also notice much less posting om topics that were on fire previously, likely because everyone has the same problem as me.20_gif

I simply rely upon the “unread posts” feature in the upper right of each page.

I did not notice the forum change.

Nope, not working.

Umm, did something change that stopped you from knowing Woot? I am confused. The only thing that changed was the chronological sort order of the forums and posts in the main page of the forums and each forum itself. The actual forum posts, subjects and ordering should not have changed.

Hekp me understand what’s changed for you.


#14

B4 everything was listed that you had not read and you could click on the right and be taken to where you left off on that tropic.


#15

If we are referring to the same thing, this is what I am using and it still works fine.

Unfortunately, fairly regularly it identifies threads to which new posts have been made without a “new” button to take me to the latest unread post. I then simply go to the last page of the thread and find what is new.


#16

And what happened to the boxes each individual post is in? sad_gif


#17

OK, I figured out if you click on the text on the right it takes you to where you left off, but it pauses at the first page, which I would then click on the last page to take me where I needed to go. I now realize just WAIT a second and it will take me to the correct spot, so kudos to that.

I do however miss the quote boxes. 'Specially without the post boxes.


#18

Boy I am lost. What boxes? The quotes work fine. Am I just being dense?


#19

I think the problem is related to OS.

On my iPad Air with IOS 7.1.1 the Quote box is present…

Or theme dependent - they’ve come and gone three times for me in the last few days…
