Some new functions

Post #1 by Holger » Fri May 20, 2011 1:18 pm

Dear members,

as CMN is growing and getting a lot more members and topics/posts we need to enhance the functionality.

Green headers
Discussed here: Green Headers
The green headers are showing from where you have unread posts in a topic. I added this because I think the smallish orange icon in the right corner is too small.
I will extend this by using a lighter green color and by colorize all unread posts, not only the first one.

Search By Time
(available on every forumpage)
Today I added the dropdown to enable search topics by time.
Here you can choose a timeframe for the search result.

View new posts/View unread posts
(available on every forumpage)
For some time we have had the links "View new posts" and "View unread posts" leading to the searchresults and View first unread post.
This is very useful when checking for new posts.
The link View first unread post leads to the first unread post in a topic, marked with a green header as shown above.

Quick Search on topic title
(available on the startpage and in the forums listing topics)
The quick search on topic title (only) is a new function that lets you find topics instantly from the startpage.
Start typing the word you are searching for and the function will immideately provide a list of matching topic titles. Click on one of them to open the topic.
In this example I was looking for the topic about the new green headers:

Enjoy!
