It's just been put on in the last few minutes!!

The recent activity should show you the last few threads you have posted in, just like in your control panel I think.

I don't think the buddy bit is active yet though

Buddy bit should be working, maybe it was just me...You can also access this link from your control panel

hotukdeals.com/for…ist

Add buddies there, then the buddy activity will show you what they were up to

Clicking on anyone's user name has the option to add to Buddy List also.

Liking the recently viewed threads bit...quick link to refer back to the one's I've talked rubbish on so I can check who I've upset this time??!?!

Unfortunate that I don't have enough friends to make a buddy list worthwhile but I s'pose I could use it to keep track of "Adders & The Mod Squad"??!?!
(if it weren't for their damn 'silent running'/stealth/sneaky/Ninja option hiding their prescence)

It looks like a neat tool but it's messed up the forum format a little.
At the bottom, its causing a white gap between the last thread and the thread page navigation bar:

Not a huge issue but perhaps something that could be fixed?
I'm using Safari v3.0.4 on a Mac.

It's having the same navigation bar issue in FireFox on Windows too.

It doesn't show if they're online, it shows the threads which your buddies have posted in lately. So yes, it does track the threads which we've posted in...

Add internet explorer to the list.

I just noticed too, looks like a good feature

I think the bottom nav bar has always been like that?

No, there's a big gap.

I noticed it when I was in the "Deals" forum, when you get to the bottom deal, you now have to scroll past 'Dead' space.

i am loving the 'your recent activity' box !!!

Oh I see what you mean - I thought you meant below the page nav.

Yeah it will do that in text only view because the right hand column is now longer than the page content. We will be taking some of that stuff out of the right hand column soonish though so that will solve that.

Strange that I noticed the thread before the new 'Recent Activity' box.
I like the new features - quicker and neater than control panel.

Ask now Magic-m!!

Admin!

While you're online, would you mind having a look at ]this thread and giving your opinion on it please!
Thank you!

neat...must say I spotted thread before box as well. Always wondered about the use of adding buddies. Now need to find out how to add a signature, as I have a tick to show one.

The 'buddy'bit doesn't work for me.

I get:

There are no currently active threads.

You need to add members to your buddy list thesaint. I think you have to do it again if you had a list before.

I don't think so.
But the buddies are all mixed up in there, depending upon who's doing what/or nothing.

I love this feature! :thumbsup:

ok, i know ima little bit dim at times, but what is the buddy thing for, when i click it it just comes up with a load fo threads:?

Here's a paste from something I'm preparing right now...



[SIZE=3][COLOR=Red]Your recent activity[/COLOR][/SIZE]

This box on the right of the forums shows the 10 threads you have posted in last. Quite self-explanatory! You can also see the last threads your buddies have posted in, by clicking “buddy activity”. If you don’t yet have any forum buddies, you can add them ]here, which you can also access from the menu at the left of your control panel. Alternatively, you can add someone to your buddy list by clicking their username, and selecting “Add XXX to your buddy list”.

All excellent, thanks. I was a bit non-plussed until I realised that you had to post for it to register, now it's super and really helpful

If you read the above posts, emma said that it will show what they are up to.
I only have 1 buddy on mine, so I don't know if you get separate lists or not for each buddy.

Best new feature by far IMHO. Thanks

's great, now much easier to stalk your favourite special members:evil: aha haha hahaha ahahahahahaha erm...sorry, got carried away

I would rather when i click the link it would take me straight to my buddies post!

Nice feature - thanks Admin :thumbsup:

Loving the Recent Activity box, but would prefer it to go to the latest post, rather than the top... any chance of an amendment?

Excellent feature.....that's one of my last remaining gripes finally fixed :thumbsup:

Still would prefer this feature...

If it's in your Recent Activity, surely most people would prefer it to just to the latest post than the top? Or the last post you saw would be even better... is that possible?
