So you want to add an extra step into the process of reading unread messages?

Yes, because FUDforum's "unread message" generate very more traffic.

Are you browsing using a cellphone? First of all if your "browser" supports compression the 200-300kb page takes only about 20-30kb.

No, I am in Russia...
Ok, I am enabled PHP compression and set 9 level, how I can test compression settings?

Well, if you use Firefox you can see the headers being sent in response, and you'll see that it sends compression headers.

It works fine, verified it with telnet, Firefox apparently hides compression response headers...

Heh...
I mention this functionality not about traffic, but usability.

I'll try to make a patch but, I think Ilia can do that faster Twisted Evil

Instead of changing Unread messages, I'd be happy to see a different link to show the threads that have new posts. It could be called "Show new posts" or some such.

My users have also been agitating for a "Latest Posts" list like they had in UBBthreads--a simple list of posts in descending timestamp order. They find the message navigator and other existing methods to be complicated and/or confusing, and want to be able to quickly find the latest posts on the forum.

Has their been any movement on this? I would really like to see a feature like this implemented. I think a lot of people really like the "Latest Posts" feature of phpBB, so something that works similarly would be a welcome addition.

FUDforum has something like this already:

1) Today's posts (messages posted today)
2) Unread posts (unread messages)

Both of these can be filtered using subscribed forums and/or topics to reduce it to just the messages you are interested in.

Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but, is there a patch/workaround/way to modify the code to achieve this?

To clarify, my users are interested in a list of threads that have been updated today, not interested in a list of posts.

Also, "Today's Messages" gives only a few of today's messages, not all of them. My users would like to see a list of all threads that have been updated since the last visit

Would like functionality similar to vBulletin "New Posts" or phpBB "View Unanswered Posts" : a list of threads, not a list of posts.

I don't mind coding it myself, but need some direction.

TIA

Personally, I thing FUDforum does it better. It offers "Today's Messages", "Unread Messages", "Unanswered Messages" and an advanced "Message Navigator" out-of-the-box. Threads as well as messages (which are collapsible) are listed. If that doesn't cut it for you, you will have to develop a patch.

naudefj, are you a programmer on the FUDforum project? I ask because Ilia does not seem to have replied here since May of last year, and I had been getting the impression that development and maintenance for this project has ceased.

Salo, doesn't the new messages have a pager?

You could add a "threads" option to that Today's | Unread | etc. list and clone yourself a function for it from one of the others.

Hi Astoria - naudefj (aka Frank) is the guy who's taken the lead on the FudForum project. Development and maintenance has *far* from ceased - Frank's been on fire lately getting the new release (2.80) out, launching a FUDForum Wiki, tackling user issues and wishlist items, and getting the forums back into shape and the project galvanized back into motion. For one example, I spotted an old feature request for chat support and found a "bolt-on" solution, and Frank had hooks figured out for it within hours; requested materials turn up on the Wiki the same day. After a period of "aimless time", FUDForum's in great hands and progressing extremely quickly now.

I may have had some confusion here between Today's Messages & Unread Messages. I cannot duplicate this complaint on my end.

I appreciate any advice you may be able to provide on which file to patch, and which file may have usable code, in order to get Today's Messages & Unread Messages to show a list of threads instead of a list messages.

Thanks again!

Astoria

Sorry, can you phrase that another way? I'm not sure what it is you are asking.

Thank you kerryg and naudefj, very good news indeed.

Salo, I mean, at the bottom of the message list page you should have a link "view more messages" or something similar when there are more new messages than you have set to appear on a page.

Perhaps this can be achieved by adding an option in global settings to allow collapsing unread messages listing by default. This has come up several times in my community since I switched them to fudforum. I think it would require copying the collapsing code from the message view template section then adding the test and the global setting. I imagine it is more complicated than that.
