Thanks a lot Kommunist! I've really missed this functionality since the changeover.

Can you post a direct link to this page Kommunist? I think we can put it in the top bar no problem.

I thought I did? See link in my first posting.

I think Kommunist means this list:

Not quite. If you right-click on "Quick Links" on menu bar and then select "Open in new window" (or tab), then the menu bar will change to the one I described. In new window, of course. And one of menus on that bar will be "New posts".

Here is direct link to page with new menu bar:

Okay, got you! Looks like it only works in Firefox to me:


Oops Yeah does work in IE too [don't know why it didn't just now :roll:].


The thing is, you lose a lot of the other drop down list options from Quick Links.

Who cares? You can access CP from button one the left. PM button is on the right, so you are only losing "subscribed threads" and "who is online" buttons.

I think Paul can maybe change it component-for component, changing the "today's post" list for the "new posts" one in the list...

...oh, I see. I prefer that menu bar anyway.

I guess it is possible to let user decide which menu bar is preferred? Just like you can choose on editing form

I like the bar with Mark Forums Read, but as moderators we can see a few more options in the forums [as you know Kommunist :)] So it doesn't really matter that much when you're buzzing around from one to the other anyway.

It's more of how you want it to look [by majority and if Admin can do it basis of course :)].

yeah, I know it looks different for various users - that's why I normally have registered accounts for each category. On my forums of course

Hehe it's about time you put your forum in your profile

It's a Russian technical forum Don't think it would be of much interest for UK folks..

BTW, I wrote my previous posting from my PDA phone. And you know what? The menu bar is the one I prefer
! I thought that mods changed it, but then logged in from PC and found that menu bar is as usual... A mystery http://netlab.e2k.ru/forum/html/emoticons/newest/helpsmilie.gif

Ah maybe that's what Admin set it to for PDA phone browsing... Wasn't there a bit of a discussion about that in the old forum?

I think it might be because of Javascript. IE on PDAs doesn't support Javascript well. So I switched JS off in Firefox on my PC and got that menu bar again. When you left-click "Quick Links" with JS disabled then menu bar is changing to the one with New Posts. Could be that I clicked QL by accident on my PDA.

[SIZE=2]Ah... now I get it I don't use a PDA so can't try that out. I might try the JS off in Firefox though.[/SIZE]
