Hey CM,

When I visit CM, I look at the New Posts page. If I read a thread, then go away to think about a response, and come back it's no longer in the New Posts list and unless I made a mental note as to which forum it's in, it's hard to find. Same happens if you respond or read - it then disappears.

Could you set it so it doesn't disappear after you read or responded? I know (for example at GPWA) it works the way I like but not sure how.

The (possibly easier) alternative is to have the "Todays Posts" link activated as that will always show the latest updates in order irrespective of whether you read them.

It's 10.17 now. If you could have that done by 10.30, that will be OK.

Cheers

Simmo!

Do you mean your 'today's posts' does not work? (quicklinks)
I always use that one in a situation like that.

A new post just isn't new anymore after reading it, right?:p

Aha! I never knew Todays Posts was under Quicklinks. But then to be fair, I am new to this site :D

Why don't you just open up CM again in a second browser window, then go back to the first window when you are ready to respond?
With forums you really can be in 2 (or more) places at the same time! :thumbsup:

Still hooped? I thought that one had 'fixed itself' when we changed servers recently. Hmm, guess not. It would be nice to have that fixed wouldn't it?

Yes it would, as that manual paint thingy is such a drudge. :(

I agree with Simmo, it has bugged me for a long time. I usually hope someone thanked me and look in my cp - that's the quickest shortcut I found. Search takes a lot longer.

But - I don't know why that is like that here. I don't see it anyplace else...

One gets into habits if one visits a lot of boards and the disappearence of recently answered posts has always been an irritation.

Moving the "todays posts" out from under quicklinks and into view and easy clicking would go a long way...
