I'd still like an easier way than going down to the bottom of the index page to mark the site read. I enter CAG via the new posts bookmark so I don't see the index page unless I load it manually.

 

 

Where the heck did you find that lol


Any typos spelling mistakes are due to leprechauns in my keyboard they move the letters around sometimes (amended just for Bookie)

Also as cymruambyth noted, I have lots of bookmarks (IE Favorites) to individual posts that contain useful information I may want to refer to at some future point. These do not now work, here is one example: http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/show-post/post-2989603.html.

The day/time stamp is directly above the username

Not it isn't. Not for me anyway. As I said above it's either a post count/reputation thing or platform (Windows XP Professional/IE6). I suspect the former.

Just checking this came out right. I've just posted a couple of posts with quotes and although it says who the quote is from, it doesn't box them to distinguish it from my notes.

 

has it here...?

 

Yes it has. Very odd:confused:

Edit: Another nag! Tried to post this and I got the "forum requires 30 seconds between posts..." but I hadn't posted anything, just tickled ForestChav!!! :-(

 

Re-edit: Ooops, summat went wrong there, got me a duplicate, that would have been what got me the 30 seconds warning then, but I hadn't posted twice!!! *my head, my HEAD!* :-(

Well, something that is a little bit of a bug maybe :p Someone has repped me on this thread (in the Bear Garden) and given me my 11th blob :D

 

Accessing subbed threads is easy as saintly_1 said, however accessing threads you have started I can't find at the moment, although you used to be able to do it through advanced search and through your profile.

 

Thanks locutus and everyone else who has replied to my query!

 

However, I still cannot find an easy way to bring up a list of all threads started by me - which was so straightforward before and now seems virtually impossible..............

 

Just like the previously referenced changes to ebay (which, whilst obviously being an improvement on the very first format, are a backward step I believe to how things were 2 or 3 years ago), I cannot see how this is an improvement personally.

 

I'm sure (like ebay) I'll get used to it in time, but for now maybe I'll take a sabbatical and wait for the dust to settle before returning.

In case you are being serious, lol... Depending on your browser (Explorer, Firefox, Chrome etc...), you will have a star or something like that near the address bar, click on that, it shold open a drop down asking you where you want to save it, save it to your favs or to your bookmark bar.

So, IMO we need a "new posts" button, and "find all threads started by me" in our profiles.

On the "plus" side, when you hover over a thread title, it now gives you the contents of the post without having to open the thread itself, which is great when all the title says "help" or something as equally non-informative.

I think IE still calls them favorites [sic] but they really aren't that - a lot of the sites I have in my bookmarks (I use firefox 4) I don't particularly like but are useful to have a record of. :)

Damnit, the bookmark doesn't refresh the page, still stuck with last page at 15.40 even when manually refreshing, can someone help? Using Chrome.

And a more prominent "Mark Forums Read" button. In previous versions of vBulletin this was always under Quick Links wherever you were! They've evidently tried to make the board feel more like parts of IPB and phpBB and lost some of the usability, IMO - IF this hasn't been skinned by some weirdo :p

Does for me - try loading the bookmark again? It just passes getnew which - obviously - returns the posts since your session last timed out or you marked the boards read.
