Robert, in the next version of the software, that feature may be available, but at present it is not. It will mean having cookies enabled, so the software can maintain the last viewed threads, posts etc. The two clicks is also a software limitation, I believe, but I'll ask Jeff Krammer to look at this thread and see if there might be a shortcut.

I would also like to say thanks, on behalf of all the DV Info staff for the kind words from Imran and Dan. We're always willing to look at suggestions on how to improve the board's features, performance and appearance. Many of these issues have been discussed before at various staff levels. While we're always willing to look at new ideas and suggestions, keep in mind the limited funds and multi national aspects of the board. I mean with the rising cost of jet fuel we're barely able to keep the corporate jet in the air for Mr. Hurds globe trotting adventures. . . err, I mean trade show appearances.

It's also useful to use the View New Posts feature to get a listing of stuff you've missed. In fact, you can make that your "Favorites" link to DVinfo.net:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/search.php?s=&action=getnew

The only request I'd make is that the View New Posts results be sortable by forum first and date second, enabling a member to zero in on the forums most relevant to him or her.

This might be possible with some extra URL arguments in the above link. Does anyone know?

And Jeff, I don't know what you're talking about in the post above. As the previous post by Edward states, this feature is available just by clicking on the little down arrow icon. And cookies are already supported on DVinfo.net, otherwise we'd have to sign on each time we visit.

You can just tack on the forum id. That will show you all posts
new to that forum since your last visit (if you have cookies
enabled)

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/search.php?s=&action=getnew&forumid=3

Weill show all new posts in the TOTEM Poll. You can find the
ID's to use by hovering over the links to the forum on the main
page.

Thanks Rob,

That's close but not precisely what I was looking for. I still want to see a listing of all new posts in all forums, I just want them sorted by forum first and date second.

According to some post on a vBulletin forum this might work, but
it doesn't here:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/search.php?s=&action=getnew&sortby=forum

BUT, it works in another way which requires a tad more work.
Click View New Posts. After the redirect you are at the first page.
Now tack "&sortby=forum" (without the quotes) at the end of
the new URL and hit enter. It will now sort them correctly.

You can't bookmark this because the URL you are redirected to
has a search ID in it which will be different each time you'll do
a view new posts.

So you will have to tack this on at the end every time.
That's the best I can do.

I guess that's the best solution. Some extra typing, but at least useful for sorting for when I've been away for more than a couple of days and a huge amount of posts have piled up.

Log In

When I first signed up on this board back in 2002, I was able to check the who's online list and view new/latest posts without logging in. Now, I must log in to view either of those. Was this a global change or is it just me?

James, I think that was a software upgrade change. It wasn't just you.

Nope. Takes me to the first post I haven't read. There could be 10 more posts after that one. In this case, it took me to the last post - there was only ONE I hadn't read.
