A quick tip for everyone!

Postby Eeyore » Aug 24, 2008 10:49 am

Over the past week I've found that I can browse the forum without logging on. If I want to reply then I'll log on. I've found that the forum seems to move much faster this way. I have my preferences set to have the latest posts show at the bottom of the page. Since I am on several times a day and I don't want to read everything that has been posted previously I use the little white button on the right hand side of the page under the last post column, this takes me to the last post and I can scroll backwards through the postings to where I left off. If I use the red button on the left it takes me to the bottom of the first page IF I'M NOT LOGGED ON.

If, I'm logged on then I use the red button on the left, then it takes me to my last unread post.

I'm not sure how things will work if your preferences are set differently. You'll have to experiment.

I've found that this is the quickest way to browse when I'm very busy and only able to be on for short periods of time.

Hope this helps some of you.

On my computers, when I open a board and see the list of topics on the left hand side, just above each topic is a little red "button".

Right above the title of the thread, you should see a little reddish "box" as Lyn says.....i think it is supposed to be a page...kinda like what we had on the old forum...shows that there were new posts...this will take you to the last post you read...

I can't get it to work either. The only way to go to the "latest" entry in a "subject" for me is to go to the bottom of the page, and set the preference for how the replies are displayed. Unfortunately, the preferences don"t save, so you have to do it for each and every subject - real pain. I have tried clicking on the little red box, or the little white "page" within each topic, but it still takes me to the original posting. Maybe the website likes you best Kelly! PS- I have tried it both logged on and logged off.
