Active forum topics button?

Post by The Quadfather » Wed Apr 26, 2017 6:12 am

Does the current version have the same option to click on 'Active forum topics'?
This was a nice way before to just call up in order of activity the various forum posts.
It was a lot quicker than wading through everything.

Just thought I'd inquire, still digesting the new stuff.

I can find this feature when working on my desktop, but can't seem to find it through my iPhone. Anyone have some insight?

Dig ,dig and dig you will find eventually. New website formats really suck. I hope the change benefits someone.....

Trust me, I have dug, and I'm not seeing it on my iPhone. Maybe someone with an iPhone can help.

When ON the forum on a phone, there's a forum specific menu at the top labeled MENU. MENU > Advanced Search > Active Topics.

Great! Thanks. I am getting used to the new website, and like it well enough on the desktop, but can't say I'm really liking the phone format. It seems very clunky trying to navigate from the reports to the forum and back. I was hoping it would be easier than the previous website, but so far I'm not enjoying it. Hopefully that'll change in time.

I'm not a big fan of the mobile menu system, too much clicking IMO. After things slow down I'm going to switch to a side loading menu.

Happy to hear that! I'm glad it's not just me. Look forward to it. Thanks Aaron.

Glad to hear that from you Aaron. I was hesitant to complain, but of course honest feedback is usually well taken.
On that note...yes, mobile site via iphone = clunky.
What is odd too me is that the whole display both on computer and mobike device, has no contrast in the colors. It is very washed out, light toned upon light colors, and then the option of whatever video is being advertised, that sticks way out because the whole backdrop has no contrast. :-({|=

Yeah, not the first person to mention contrast. The more um using the site the more I agree. Adding to the list.

Thanks Aaron, I was wondering the same thing the other day.
