    How many times a day do you pop in to MailerForum to read the latest? Enquiring minds want to know!

    Please fill out the poll for some fun...

    It's always open in one of my tabs, but I'm participating maybe twice a day.

    Depends on a day. Ranging from not visiting at all to catching up on all the activity I missed.

    It would really help to add the complete feed of all posts, beyond just "Latest 10" to make it easier to quick scan all activity.

    I agree! I use Tapatalk when I am not in front of the computer and need my "MF fix" and it shows all the latest posts since I last logged on.

    Alllowing the same for the website would be just great!

    Right now it only shows 7 to me and that's it!

    It should really show ALL posts from all (sub)forums in reverse chronological view. I'd probably rename it into "Latest Posts" too...

    Thats because only 7 threads have new content since you last logged in.

    I logged in with an account I opened back in May and went to New Posts, my page was filled with
    dozens and dozens of threads to read.

    Am I misunderstanding you?

    That sounds about right, however I do not see why posts that have been read should disappear from that tab just because I clicked on them once.

    Right now there is no way to see threads that are old but have been updated, like most of them.

    ----

    Your new comment made the entire thread show up.

    This feature perhaps is controlled from within the Control Panel? Do a test and after you read this, click on New Posts and tell me if you see this thread back in there?

    Well I just have no idea how the system selects the posts in that tab... I just clicked it again and now there are only 5 posts there...

    This is not a big deal, but it just would be nice to have a feed of ALL posts in reverse chronological order.

    This is what it shows! lol

    If the thread is in BOLD it means new posts.

    Check your CP settings, must be something in there...

    I went into control panel poked around a bit but still cannot get all posts displayed. There is a help link though -

    http://www.mailerforum.com/forum/faq.php?faq=vb3_board_usage#faq_vb3_thread_display

    What I'd prefer to have though is not just a filtered display of all unread posts, but just a reverse chronological view of all forum posts.

    Have a browser window always open. Check it about once a day.
    This place is addicting. There's a good group of people here, I love it.
