Migrated Newest Posts to Site Feed & options & account defaults
Posted: Posted March 1st, 2017
Edited March 1st, 2017 by Xhin

  • First change -- Newest posts is at the top-right corner of the screen at all times, marked "Site Feed".

  • Removed Newest Posts from the quicklinks.

  • When you use the "Filter" feature, you can now save your options by clicking the "+Save" button.

  • If you set it to "Default Site View", then every time you click "Site Feed" it will show whatever you set.

  • If you set it to "Preset" and then add a name, then every time you hover over "Site Feed", a little menu will appear that lists your presets.

  • You can click a preset to view that preset, or click the (X) button to remove it.

  • There are 26 Replies

    I like it in general but a couple of things.

    1. OMG THIS IS GOING TO TAKE FOREVER TO GET USED TO.

    2. Top right corner is a bad place to put the link, it's so out of the way that I barely notice it even on my tablet... It'll probably be even worse on my larger desktop monitor.

    3. I wonder if maybe the three "modes" (replies, posts, hottest) should be more visible when you're in the "site feed". Seems like anyone who doesn't see this post would probably never realise you can change it.

    Tried several times (even after ctrl + f5) and it will not save hottest as my default view. As soon as I leave and go back it has reverted to posts.

    Yeah I can fix all but #1 (fixing #2 actually makes #1 worse

    Also a problem I've had since you revamped the top bar is the number for alerts appears all the way at the top right of the page (so it is now on top of "Site Feed" and looks related to it).

    I assume it is supposed to appear on the alerts icon.

    Browser is chrome.

    I also just realized that the hover thing doesn't work if you're on your phone.. hmm.

    What was wrong with the way it was? In the quicklinks.

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by chiefsonny

    @chiefsonny: yeah I could add it back to the quicklinks too since they'll be made optional eventually anyway.

    I don't have a problem with it. It doesn't change anything for me yet because my newest replies bookmark (http://gtx0.com/index.php?forum=newest&mode=rep) still works.

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by nullfather

    What I'm getting at. If a vet like Moonray is having problems with it, how is some new person going to figure out what you're trying to do.

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by chiefsonny

    I'm only "having problems" because I'm so used to using quicklinks.

    A new person wouldn't have that issue. Which is why my suggestions were all aimed at making it more visible :)

    2. Top right corner is a bad place to put the link, it's so out of the way that I barely notice it even on my tablet... It'll probably be even worse on my larger desktop monitor.

    Fixed

    This isn't a huge deal since the icon at least works and mobile view is crap in general

    I could add it back to the quicklinks too since they'll be made optional eventually anyway.

    Fixed.

    I'm going to leave it up at the top for people that aren't logged in so new users will at least get used to it.

    I still can't save hottest as my default view FYI.

    Why is newest posts the default? Why would anyone use anything other than newest replies?

    Why is newest posts the default? Why would anyone use anything other than newest replies?

    Because Newest Posts is likely to be the most useful for new users.

    Also I use it for the most part because 16+ years of tracking post replies is a hard habit to break.

    Actually I would argue hottest is the "most useful". It is the standard type of view on internet forums these days and thus what people are going to be most familiar with.

    but now it takes me like 3 steps to get to newest replies

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by poptart!

    ohh nevermind you fixed it since i last checked

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by poptart!

    Hottest and Site Feed don't display any posts when I click them

    did I overlook something or is this a whoopsie

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by Pirate_Ninja

    Yeah Hottest isn't working and it's triggering the shit out of me.

    Posted March 1st, 2017 by Count Dooku

    @Xhin:

    Hottest is also not working for me.

    Oh you mean it's literally not working at all for anyone. Should be easy to fix...
