New Feature: Sort By Created time

Post by LeroyBrown » Mon Sep 02, 2019 4:58 pm

@Tarmaque
@FWIW72

A few people brought this up and I found a good extension for it. I believe both Tarm and FWIW mentioned it but there were others. There is new option for sorting topics. It is "created time" this will sort topics by the date and time they were started, instead of by the last post.

Does using @username actually work here?

Interesting. This now works just fine in the individual rooms, but it isn't persistent. You lose the property when you leave the room. You're supposed to be able to make it persistent by doing it in your user control panel, but the option isn't there.

@nellienobody Yes, this works rather well, actually. If you type an "@" and the first letter of the name you want to add, you should get a pop-up list of people to choose from. You can also do it manually by surrounding the name with mention tags. Like this:

Code: Select all

This is great, but it reverts to the default if you leave the page, then go back. Can it be a user option?

You can set your default search options in UCP -> board preferences -> edit display options.

I think I'm still on my Training Wheels here.
I'm typing comments on the Topic Box, instead of forming a gently prickling comment.
Ah well....the learning curve.
For some reason, I got an upward point, instead of the asterisk following the "?" of my avatar, which disturbs me a bit......But anyhoo, I'm off this week, and am on the WTF network in a supermarket (since the library is closed). No labor for the Librarians.

Of course, I found it, this morning, as soon as Guide posted this announcement.

It's an option for topics, but not for posts within a topic.

You need to scroll down the page a bit and click Submit.

First try refreshing the page you're looking at. phpBB seems a little slow on the uptake.

Then try logging off and shutting down your browser, then restarting and logging on.

Works great, thank you!

As others have indicated, if you want the choice to hold as you move from board to board, set it in your user control panel, board preferences, not at the bottom of a board.

I had an old girlfriend named Razz(last name Razzano) who was a hot little Italian job with a wild head of dark curls that would stop traffic.
She was an artist and was generally well acknowledged to be extremely cool...so much so that I took to calling her Cool Razz which then morphed into Kool Razz Ultra. Then one day I tried out Razz Beans...she dumped me a few weeks later...

@LeroyBrown

Than you for the sorting feature. I didn't realize how I'd relied on that at Disqus.

I cant seem to stop getting notifications when someone "thanks" me, despite my control panel settings.

Changes to notifications are not retroactive. If you turn it on you will get notifications going forward but you won't see notifications from past thanks.
