Chronological list of most recent posts throughout this site

Postby SprocketLocket » Thu Oct 02, 2014 3:34 pm

Is there a way to see a list of most recent/active threads or posts compiled in 1 list, regardless of which subforum it's in?

For example, Budget Light Forum dot com, the front page has a list of currently active posts, in most recent order, regardless of which subforum. I've seen other forums like that, but sometimes that feature is hidden somewhere else. Is it a feature here? I really like it, as otherwise I miss interesting threads/posts as they would be in subforums I would not frequent as often, or at all.. Just less work to find the interesting stuff. I think it would generate more traffic and more discussion too.

Think I found it: "View active topics", which is next to "View unanswered posts" near the top-left of the page, appearing on most pages. Cool...

That's how I go through the various boards. I don't think you'll find the link on any page besides the main forum index:
index.php

It's not perfect, I'd say the occasional thread doesn't show up in it, but it works well enough for me.

The options and their positioning vary with the board style used.

There is an option to "View new posts", which is different to "View active topics". It shows the new posts since you last logged in.

These are all of the options I know of:

View unread posts: search.php?search_id=unreadposts

View new posts: search.php?search_id=newposts

View your posts: search.php?search_id=egosearch

View unanswered posts: search.php?search_id=unanswered

View active topics: search.php?search_id=active_topics

Hi,

You can also view your subscriptions in the "manage subscriptions" tab of your user control panel:
Below is a list of forums and topics you are subscribed to. You will be notified of new posts in either. To unsubscribe mark the forum or topic and then press the Unwatch marked button.
Best Wishes!

Mitch


The best quality batteries and lowest priced batteries for DIY EV's are tier 1 OEM Quality Cells from salvaged (wrecked) EV packs. Two examples are Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf packs.

Nissan Leaf Module specs are here
Chevy Volt Pack Info - Salvage 16kwh Packs Under $2k here
The cells are rated conservatively by GM at 7.8C, Yabert's tests of Volt packs on the DiyEv car forum suggest a higher C rate, 15+ C!.

$1,400 plus $360 freight. Still over $1k less than new lead!
