active topics button

Postby ifixalot » Tue Aug 18, 2015 9:41 am

There used to be an active topics button. Clicking it let you see the recent active topics.
It's gone now and that was how I viewed the board. I miss it.
In the old format, I could look at a topic and instead of going back with the back button,
I could click the active topic button and go back to the list of active threads.
That was missing with the new format, I miss that too.

There still is an active topics function. it's listed under the Quick Links menu. Due to the change of the board they put many of these functions in menu's to take up less screen space so you can have 5-6 functions in the area of one button. Check out the new features I outlined in this topic... The Active topics is one of those.

One thing I didn't catch was that you can no longer see the thread sections on the main page. Only shows the main subject and not the sub section with time, who created/replied within thread.

Once again that is a function of the responsive css code to keep the forum at a txt size that is readable. If I put my phone sideways I see the last posted in topics.

If it did not do this you would constantly have to zoom in and out to read it and click on links.

I honestly don't think any features of the old board are gone at all, they are all still there but just in a different spot or look a bit different to fit formatting.
