new quick preview at top of forum - NEW! RSS feed!

I like this new feature - makes it so much easier to see when someone has posted.

Actually that’s a point Sureal. it occurred to me just a moment ago, that maybe I do prefer it.

how confusing! :smile:


hehee…my first visit since the new layout has been implemented and i must say…awesome work!

it looks so much crisper and clearer than the last version…i particularly like the colour choices, i didn’t expect it to look so sweet Q!

mmm…i do prefer the previous ‘newest topics’ layout to this chunkier style, but if you find a way to hide it like DA mentioned, that would be cool.

i love the little starry sky blocks (whatever they are called) between each forum section in the main page. the icing on the cake.

ooops…just one idea.

i’ve seen a few forums (or blog type pages…hmm…hope it was forums) use a scrolling news ticker type feature for new posts. the subjects are clickable and pause when you mouse over them. i think i’ve spotted both a horizontal and a vertical scroll…i’ll have to find an example if i can to show you what i mean but maybe it will fit in with the forum style a lot more…nice and compact.
hopefully it works with all browsers.

I hate animated pages. They (well, the animations) distract me.

Not sure I like it. Might get used to it. But it does only show 5 topics at a time. While usually, for me, its often 60-70 new topics when I get on the forum. “View new posts(70)” works for me.

I also prefered the page without it.Kind of too big.

Um, well I don’t know which forum I’m supposed to use to make suggestions for the site but it kind of relates to this. Would it be possible to create an RSS feed for the latest topics on the forum? That way people could see what’s being talked about on the forum much easier, and they could check the newest topics while surfing other sites. Just an idea…

By the way, I love the new quick preview and this isn’t proposed as a way to replace it. It would only add a feature to the forum.

I think that is a great idea FFlare, and I do believe it is available for phpbb. :smile:

I didn’t know this was possible - If somebody can explain to me how and what and where I’m happy see if i can implement it :smile:

Um, well I know how to create an RSS feed but my programming knowledge is VERY limited. So I wouldn’t be able to tell you how to automatically update it or if there’s a php mod for it. Basically it would mean that people would be able to see the latest topics straight from the bookmarks on their browser. It would be kind of like a folder of topics in your bookmarks that updates by itself. I’m not sure which browsers support this but I know that Firefox does.

Noooo! The quick preview is broken (I click on the link, but it comes up with a message saying my browser sent a message the server doesn’t understand).

I didn’t realise I relied on it so much until just now :tongue:.

whowhawhewha?? explain please :smile: lemme try if i get that error too, can have to do with the upgrade to 2.0.11.

When I try to use, it sends me to a page saying:

Bad Request
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

EDIT: works now

glad to hear it works :smile: the magic of christmas :wink:

i’ve changed the layout a little - still searching… i cannot change it to the old layout (like on the dutch forum) because then i cannot exclude the playground and test area from displaying.)

edit: weird, the last date stays at 30 december :eh:

I like it how it is now PasQuale.

We’re an anoying bunch to please i know hehe

w00t :grin:

only thing is the date doesn’t display right yet so i’ve left it out entirily for now :grin:

Ah, now I can’t see who the last person to reply was :confused:. That’s probably it’s best use (I can watch a number of threads at the same time to see when someone has replied).

Yes, I do feel like being difficult :wink:.

i could add the name of the last person who replied, but i don’t know if that will look good.


tried it out but it looks too messy
