Recent Threads?
« on: September 07, 2019, 04:11:39 am »
Is there a way to see a listing of all recent threads in the order they were last posted in?


The "recent posts" section is very hard to follow as it's posts from all different threads. And once a new thread has been read it disappears from the "unread posts since last visit" section

It would be very handy (and a lot less likely for threads to be missed by members) if in the top left there was an option "Show recent threads"

For example, on this forum, when I click "discussions" all threads remain on that page in order and the ones that are unread have a blue line next to them (far left)





And on this forum when I click "today's posts", all threads also remain in order. The threads I have read display as regular text, the unread display as bold

Thank you, it would be very helpful to have as our threads are dying too quickly... nobody wants to search through each section of the forum, they just want to see all the recent posts in one place.

Under admin -> permissions modify each member group
And check "View Today's Posts"

Thank You, I'll have one of the Admin's turn it on and see if it helps out.


Just curious, is this a new feature you just added? or something we missed?

What is the time-frame for "today"? Is it the user's midnight to midnight?

It is from the forum's time zone midnight to midnight


Would it be possible to make the 24 hour period from the last time a post was made in that thread instead of clearing the whole page at midnight? For example if a post was made at 10pm, is there a way to keep it in "today's posts" until 10pm the next night (instead of just 2 hours) if no more posts are made in it?


I was on our forum and some posts were less than an hour or only a couple hours old, but once midnight struck, the whole list was cleared.


Basically just asking if each post can be kept there until there is 24 hours of inactivity in that thread.


This was our "today's posts" page shortly before midnight, but then they all disappeared. Thank you again for your help!
