Easiest way to see all new posts?

Postby EndersGame » May 14th, '18, 00:25



What is the easiest way to see all the newest posts, in order?

I see there are a couple of existing links for the following:

Unread posts: search.php?search_id=unreadposts

New posts: search.php?search_id=newposts

Sometimes nothing shows up when I click on them, and I'm not sure which is the best to use.

How do others keep up with the latest posts, without actually needing to go in to all the individual sub forums and see what has been posted since you last visited?

For example, if I haven't been on the forum for a week, and want to quickly see a list of all new topics or new posts that have been submitted since I last visited, what is the link I should be using, assuming there is a way to see that easily?

Personally I do both the above plus a scan of the front page to see if any of the left hand symbols are pink which indicates something new.

Like Mandrake, I just scroll down the front page and see what's highlighted. Quick and simple, no clicking on anything unless there's something new.

Same here - if it's pink I'll have a look at it; otherwise I don't bother looking.

Ooh err ..... innuendo bingo anyone?? Is that thread still going??

QUESTION:
If we can sue McDonalds for making us fat and cigarette companies for giving us cancer; why can't we sue Smirnoff for all the ugly gits we've sh*gged ??

Hahaha @Moonbeam.

This thread is interesting. What I've noticed is that we need a new (can't remember what they call them on phpbb) couple of catergores with maybe one for jokes as someone suggested they would single handedly do the other day, or something like that. And one for inusedo bing because I'd totally forgotten about that thread until I read this one just now.

I run a few forums in my time and one of the most awkward bits of the job was to decide what people wanted to talk about and where, and how to structure it!

This place sure does need a kick up the ass somehow tho. It's tooooo quiet for my liking! :cry:

Maybe a new look might be in order...
