    Default Forum functionality request

    Would it be possible to have one of the buttons at the top of the forum be "Latest Posts" or something like that?

    Similar to "New Posts" or "What's New" (Are those two the same thing?)

    What I don't like about those is they try and remember what you have allready looked at and hide that from you.

    I would like to come to the forum and just view the latest posts in all category's in cronological order, without having the forum try and hide posts it thinks you have allready seen.
    Possibly you could just change one of those two buttons to show topics in chronological order based on the latest post in each topic.

    Some times I come here and click on "What's New" and don't see the topic I am interested in... even though I know there was activity in that topic earlier today.

    Hope this make sense.


    Others thoughts??

    Right click and add to favorites if using I.E.
    You can't bookmark it after clicking because it redirects.

    Dwight,

    I click on My Posts at the far right of New Posts, and then My posts.

    That gives me a list of all the posts I've participated in. It's not perfect but it works for me.

    Not as dumb as yesterday, but stupider than tomorrow!

    Thanks Darrel, I really like this one.

    How can I get the ME icon on the tab?

    It gave me a generic IE icon. I only had 4 icons available to chose in properties, so I took that newspaper. This was the addy it used for icons:
    C:\windows\system32\url.dll

    I looked in melabs programmer folder, pbp, lab x1; can't find an icon.

    It's not a bug, it's a random feature.
    There's no problem, only learning opportunities.

    Right-Click on the shortcut and select "Properties".
    On the "Web Document" tab, click the "Change Icon..." button.
    Click the "Browse" button.
    Copy & Paste this URL into the "File name" at the bottom, then press "Open".
