View active topics is no-op even for logged users

Postby Bertram » Fri Jul 15, 2011 8:01 am

Hi,

The title is quite summarizing it well. :)

Can at least this be considered for fixing? Since it's really uneasy to keep track of news here as the 'view unread posts' link can work only once, as said in its own caption, and 'view new posts' link doesn't list enough topics IMHO.

Best regards,

I second the petition.

This forum has an XBOX HUEG number of sub-forums. I finf myself clicking "view new posts" each time I log in, and it's disappointing.

I agree. Its something I'd like to fix but I just don't have the bandwidth to do this right now. I'll keep it in mind, but that's all I can promise for now until I can get more pressing matters done.

Hi,

I can't press you more than relevant about it, but I'm glad you agree about that point.

Best regards,

Well if any one of you want to look into the issue and figure out what setting needs to be changed in the admin panel or what add-on we need to get this working right and point me to exactly what I need to do, its much more likely to happen. The issue isn't applying the fix, its finding out what needs to be done to be fixed. Obviously you don't have access to this site's admin panel (and sorry, I'm not giving it out :heh: ), but you might be able to find something about this on the phpBB forums or documentation.

Just followed the instructions in your first link. Thanks, that was quite helpful. :) Had to set the option to display active topics for every forum.
