Green Headers

Post #1 by Neversweat » Wed May 18, 2011 7:38 am

I've noticed some of the replies to topics have a green header to them instead of plain - Does this signify anything :?:

Hi Steve I think its Holgers way of highlighting that a new post has been made, or the place where the new post starts since your last visit, I'm sure Holger will explain it all here.

I's all new Steve I too wondered what was going on when I first saw it :lol: Holger loves to have a play around with the site settings from time to time..................... I think he likes to experiment with ideas to make the site a little better.

Hi there! You are completely right Jeremy! I tried to modify the code in such a way that UNREAD posts get a light green header (will change the color to LIGHTER later on) because I think that tiny little orange icon on the right side is far to small.
Unfortunately the codechanges until now only highlight the FIRST unread post in a topic. I am working on this.
As it is not a setting (I am changing the code of the site) it needs some development.

I will also highlight the "View new posts"-link more later on, because I think that is an essential link on here directing to a page with links to first unread posts in the search result.

Well it makes it a bit more colourful i guess, :lol: i dont know, go away for a few days and Holgers gets out of his cupboard again and changes things a bit.. never a dull moment eh, but it does show you where you have a new post or like me go away for a few days and you can see where there are a lot of posts in the topic you was active in when you left to go away and you can trace back to the green line :bow:

Well, the advantage is that you can see where the new/unread part starts fast.
