Solved Go to first unread post

Post by RandomSil on September 29th 2015, 10:22 am

Firstly sorry if this is in the wrong section. Secondly, I have looked and have been unable to find a solution to my problem.

Is there a way I can implement a "Go to first unread post" button for each Topic that is started. (Our previous forum had it, when you clicked on the Topic name it would redirect you to the last viewed post. If there would be a way to implement that, it would be great. Currently using Invision forum layout. Also wondering if there is any way we can add this to the mobile version.

Hello,


I am not sure I fully understand what you mean by 'first unread post', but you can get to the latest unread posts by clicking the orange paper icon right next to a topic name in a forum. If you have the recent topics enabled, you could also do it this way.

That takes you to the newest post on the forum.

What I am looking for is more the thread picking up where you last viewed it. (Our former forum we had several pages fill up in days.)

So say I made a post on page 34 of a topic, and the next time I log in the topic is up to 37 pages. When I click on it (or button) it takes me to page 34.

Unfornatelly there is no such feature available in the default admin panel. It may be possible to do with code though. I will refer you to @Ange Tuteur , he will know better if this is possible and if so, how it can be done.

In the meantime, you will just have to go page by page Sad.

Well thank you for your help. I also have a couple other concerns that I am going to ask here. If I should make another thread let me know. (Just don't want to clog up the forums.)

- Word Document Theme (Basically some of my members want an alternate theme that looks similar to a word document so they can browse while working. Razz However I couldn't find a theme on Hitskins. Is there another way around this.)

- I have added a search function at the top. However it doesn't appear to function. Like I am unable to search a word and it doesn't come up with posts including those words.

That is all currently. Just trying to get on a few things the guys would like.

That would definitely need access to the database and some PHP, unfortunately we don't current have this option or the means to make it yourself. ( unless you stored data offsite )

The only query I know of for the topics is ?view=newest, when appended to the topic url it'll take you to the last post. For example : http://help.forumotion.com/t136243-members-introduction?view=newest

You're free to open a suggestion for the forums if you like, though. Smile

Thank you very much for the quick reply. It is a shame, that isn't possible. I may post in the suggestion area later.
