I'm in that mood again.  Time to suggest something new as well as a renewing a couple of older suggestions ;-)

     

  1. Would it be possible to put some sort of indicator next to the topics in the "New forum posts" view showing which topics you are watching (either started, previously contributed to, or clicked the "watch topic" button)?  This could either be some sort of icon, or the topic hyperlink could be in a different colour such as red.
  2. Manual "Reset read flags" option (yes that old chestnut)
  3. Some way to see all the people and/or posts for which people have supported oneself?  I think this may have been requested previously but cannot find the outcome of that request.

That's all for now.  Thanks for listening :-)

I can work 1, 3 soon.

2 is the old "too hard as we don't track individual threads" and would involve a bit of change in the login system. Can be done, but a bit of work and testing needed...

If you require a tester for 2 then I'm definitely at hand!

If you're looking for suggestions: in the url for topics, is it possible to have the forum name in there, rather than the ID number. Its usually not possible to tell what forum a post is in from its title, and hovering over the link for a glance at the url would be an easier way to find out, rather than clicking through, then back again.

I'm on the bandwagon with a couple of oldies:

1) Auto URL Detection so it creates Hyperlinks.
2) Mobile Support via Tapatalk
3) Fix the problem where if & is present in a subject, the email notifications are incorrectly formatted.

While your at it. Is it possible to put the "manual reset flags" some else rather than next to the "New Forum Posts" ?? :-)

freitasm: Auto URL works if you're using the rich text editor.



I only use the full editor when making my own topics, 95% of the time, it's using the quick editor. Is it not possible to get the quick editor to do it? Different web control or something?

Agree. I have hit the wrong one an embarrassing number of times smile

I could, but in a tech focused forum, should it be necessary? With all the other smarts in this site, it should be feasible.

The Quick Reply didn't have the editor to make page load faster. But I can leave it here for a while and measure it to see how it goes...
