Some of you might have noticed that I switched out the main form panel that shows the latest activity of the forum.

While this one is a bit more simplistic, it has more customization features.

Here's how to best use it so you can customize your forum experience.

First, if you want to ignore any thread in the list, hover over the thread and click the Ignore Icon.
To bookmark any thread, click the Bookmark Icon.
To report, same thing.

See below.

32013

Next, you can customize how many threads you want in the summary. Click the GEAR ICON (settings) and select the # of threads you want displayed.
You can also set to ignore certain forums... for example, "The Mens Room" or "Off Topic" conversations.

See below...
32014

And finally, if you don't want to see this panel at all, you can set your preferences to eliminate it entirely.
Click "Preferences" in your Profile, and select "Hide Statistics Widget"

32015

Some other notes...

-- The number of THREAD REPLIES looks to only appear on LAPTOP and DESKTOP configs, narrow screen widths (phone/tablets) will block this.
-- The panel auto-refreshes and "dings" any new updates of threads. If you don't want to hear the "ding" -- you can mute it by pressing the mute.
-- The developer of this seems to be pretty active, so hopefully the presentation will improve as time moves ahead.
-- Certain threads/links can be pinned, this might be offered as an advertising option in the future, not sure yet as I haven't quite figured out how to administrate it yet.

Is there anyway to tell which threads have got a reply since your previous visit? Previously they were bold if I remember correctly. Is it possible to implement something like that or is there another icon that shows this that I am overlooking?

EDIT: I see the "New" icon now, I was missing the bold feature but I am sure I will get used to the "new" icon

The icon NEW appears. Also the speaking icon turns green.

Earlier today, I had the forum open in the background and I kept hearing a Ding. I had several tabs open but I couldn't figure out where the hell it was coming from. Good to know I'm not going corona-crazy!

Positive change! The forum in my opinion looks cleaner, and it's easier to navigate :)

I like the new 'ignore' and 'bookmark' functions, but I'm also missing the 'bold' status for new posts and posts with new comments. Maybe it takes some time to get used to it.

EDIT: Ok, after a few days I got used to it and see the improvements compared to the previous version. Good job!

Just an FYI, the module that performs this function was updated today and it looks like there was a bug in it that prevents the scrolling function for those of you who have many records chosen as a setting. I am aware of it.

@MJ DeMarco Is it possible to have it display the name of the original OP, it's nice to know who recently replied but I'd like to easily know it started the thread.

Where can I set this to mute? I can't find it in my preferences and I really dislike this feature.

Overall, I like the new panel. Being able to ignore threads and sub-forums is very cool.


In case it's ever an option to bring back at some point: the #1 thing I miss from the previous display, was seeing who the OP was for the thread.

Agreed, I miss that as well.

However this is not a setting but a lack of functionality.

I did put in a request for this modification with the add-on developer, he seems to be pretty responsive to requests, so fingers crossed!

@MJ DeMarco One more thing:

would be nice ifif thread title text would wrap on mobile. As is, I can’t read enough of any title to understand what the topic is or if I’m interested.

Hi Fastlane Veterans!

I've only been in here intermittently so from my noob perspective I have been keen to follow certain topics/themes/threads e.g. Execution category, and am wondering is there an option to view Category threads in their own individual areas/sections rather than mixed into the overall forum?

UPDATE: Found It! The Categories appear below the main page of the forum... I missed it as the initial thread section expands as you scroll down it... You have to click outside of it to be able to scroll the entire page down!

Doh! False Alarm! :)



Cheers,


Hadrian
