Does the forum software have a new or recent posts facility that can deliver up all posts made in all sub forums since a member's last visit.
Most messageboard/forums softwares have this - it's very usefull

If you log in to the forum and have history then a "new" is shown for items since your last visit.

No, not on the top level, at least not for me neither (98se). I must compare the dates on all 9 sub-forums manually, and try to remember when I last looked in, or first open all subforums to finally see the "new" marks *sigh* Which is really, really a pain, especially when being used a complete "new postings" or "active topics" list from other forums. One single page that includes all sub-forums, instead of 9 forums that seem completely independant. If there were at least a "New" mark at subforums that contain new posts, but not even that exists.

I'm with Arrow, since (if you can remember) sourceforge updated their servers and software and whatever they made, the forum became "unbrowsable" (I said few times...) and with the new subforums, you can lost lot of threads and it's a pain going through each forum remember what you read, check them, unable to mark forums as read, etc, etc, etc.

I really recommend SMF forums and make a forum face wash.

I don't keep history.

On every other forum I visit regularly, I bookmark the Recent or New postsurl and use that to open the forum in my browser,

For example; on vbulletin the recent posts url bookmark would be
h**p://www.forumname.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew

Skilled manpower for this project is limited. K-Meleon devs work on the browser.

Who can implement this post's feature request?


p.s. Its not that the request is technically impossible. This project has to set priorities, and IMHO we want the browser not the Forum improved first.

I am only a user, still, if I want a new skin, I create one. I will not ask a dev.

Well, I never managed a Phorum Forum, but reading the readme for that mod, isn't very difficult.

Just add the mod to the correct directory. Install from administrator page and modify the template. (This should be done by kko, the admin, if I'm not wrong).
