forum tip: view active topics

Postby shagzomatic » Wed Aug 27, 2014 12:29 pm

I've mentioned this recently to a couple people who didn't know about it, so I figured it might be worth throwing something out here.

Instead of scanning through individual forums or watching for the forum icons to change when there are new posts, I use the 'View active topics' link in the top left of the board:

This shows all threads that have had new posts recently (by default, within the past 7 days -- you can change this in the dropdown at the bottom of the page):

If there are any unread posts in a thread, you see all the usual icons and indicators of that, but you get everything in one condensed view instead of having to browse through all the subforums to get to new stuff. The 'View new posts' link in the upper right is very similar, but limits to threads where there are new posts since your last visit -- if there are none, it shows any threads with activity in the past day.
