#1: new post history stays now.. until you have read the post Author: Qu PostPosted: Thu 06 May, 2004
    ----
Due to special request i have added this mod.

Now when you log out, you will still keep the new post history. New posts stay New until you have read them :D

it is now also possible to view new posts as a guest, if you don't want to login but still want to know what's new.

I have tested it and it should work.. i noticed that the number behind new posts is gone now, i want to add that back.

If you encounter any probs with this let me know.

Either it's not working properly or it doesn't work right with Mozilla firebird. But I came to this post read it and went back to the main forum page and it still showed up as "new post"

So i shut down the browser and came back and then ALL the topics were marked as read even though i hadn't read them.

They stay open and unread no matter how many times I read them

My computer was set to the wrong date. spinning Please ignore this

also after making the first post i got one part telling me there was a new post and the main part of the forum saying there wasn't.

there's a screen shot so you know what i mean.

#6:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Thu 06 May, 2004

this is real weird because when i read a post it disappears from new post list.. Strange!

siww, do you use IE or another browser?

i use IE here.

and i assume everybody has their cookies settings correct.

#7:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Thu 06 May, 2004

aaaaaaaaaaahhh yes i know what you mean. Yes, i doesn't update it in the top part of the forum. - that's because it is a seperate function which is embedded.. i can look into it and see if i can tweak it so it doesn't leave it as new.

but when you click on 'view new posts', does it keep appearing in there too?

Plain old IE here, but i had a wrong date on my computer, so it loaded an old page every time. it went away when i deleted all the saved internet files. siiw

great thing Q...it works when I'm online, but it goes back to no new posts when I restart..but that's nothin to do with you. I have to do stuff on my comp that makes everything go away. So it's all good.

#10: great scott! =P Author: Sentient PostPosted: Tue 11 May, 2004
    ----
Oh cool it works for me! smile sorta

It says the new posts since i last visited with that little number after it, right above the 'view your posts' and then some other one. That is still the same.

But whats cool is that now when i go into a big thread thing like 'Quest for Lucidity" or "Beyond Dreaming" the new ones will still have that golden paper thing or whatever that shows i have yet to read it, when before if i logged off and then on they would all look like 'read already' and i would be lookin like cry !

So at least it works for me, thanks Pasquale! smile *bows*

:D It sure makes reading the forums a lot less hassle.

I used to try to get all of the reading done in as short a time as possible before I lost the new posts tag. I'd skip a lot of the information and never have time to read everything before I had to log out or my session expired due to my wandering mind.
Now I can come and go as I please, then take my time to read and post whichever threads I have time for without having to search through the forums later.

Luvs the new posts function.

problem for me is that if a topic has been replied to twice i have to view "both" new topics via their post number link other wise after reading the post it still shows up as a "new post"

Rather anoying actually so now it looks like i'm going to have to find that "mark all read" button if there is one cry

//edit: Ok there isn't one. Could we add one please? I'm getting anoyed clicking on new posts to discover i've read them already.

#14:  Author: r3m0t PostPosted: Tue 11 May, 2004

On each forum, to the right of "new topic". ^^

#15:  Author: Mohegan PostPosted: Tue 11 May, 2004
    ----
i meant a global one, by the time i've gone through the whole forum clicking each one i'll of forgot what i was trying to do in the first place.

I ingore the new post thing normally anyways but the fact it sometimes doesn't update anoys me weird eh. I usually just go through the forums looking at posts i might be interested in i pay little attention normally. eh

**Gets ready to start using the subscribe feature so he know when a new reply has "really" been posted**

Hum... don't think it's working for me, but that may be because I just opened a new window and logged in without logging out origionally. Good idea though! I'd love that grin

Also, do not forget to have your preference set to accept cookies. You can erase them later.

SAME HERE! I luuuuuuv it. It's kinda hard to break my old habits. ^^ I still leave the LD4all forum window open fearing I'll lose my post count. grin

My internet connection also requires the use of a proxy, and sometimes this proxy fails and I have to connect directly (which is slower.) Before, this would reset my post count grrr but not now! 8D

If you regularly clean your cookies and cashe it seems that everything will reset and there will be no new posts when you sign back on. But, thatís the only problem I have had.

#23:  Author: Hubbs PostPosted: Wed 19 May, 2004

Cool, good option :D

It makes a difference for me

#24:  Author: Tomas PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004

I think this caused alot of problems for me, as now when you read a post on index page, the ">" does not change color anymore... Impossible to know wether someone has replied or not... Also the eyes stay open all the time aswell now... Everything worked fine a upto a few weeks ago, which i guess is the time this feature was added.... I use mozilla-firefox btw, which have worked nicely with ld4all in the past.. Same result on the 2 computers i tried.

#25:  Author: DreamAddict PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004

tomas, those seem to be bugs that effect all users. The trade off for the benefits seemed worth it a few weeks ago, but I'm starting to have additional problems.

Last week when I had >100 unread post LD4all.com started to fail to load. I check 2 other computers at the same time, and only my computer had this problem. From this, I knew it was a local problem.

As a last restort, I deleted all of my cookies. This fixed my problem.

Today I noticed my "new post" list was again above 100, and recently LD4all.com again failed to load in Internet Explorer.

This time, I only deleted the LD4all cookie, and it fixed my problem.

I noticed the ld4all cookie was the largest cookie at 5kb.

Could this fat cookie be blocking IE from even attempting to load the site??

Seems strange that a cookie could cause this.

In my browser I get the 501 and 505 error message. With my satellite connection, there is a delay for request to websites. This error is local, and as soon as I type ld4all.com the error loads instantly. sadblauw No attempt what-so-ever to even try to retrieve the webpage.

that's not funny... eek2

i'll report that to the mod maker, maybe they have a solution. i cannot do anything about it myself exept removing the mod.

#27:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004
    ----
i have changed the mod so it now stores the unread files in the database instead of the cookies. i hope this solves some probs.

unexpected downside: all unread post you had previously stored in the cookies now are considered read now. eh

also it now also works on the index page (hurray)

the number of new posts will return soon, i have to add that again grin

#28:  Author: DreamAddict PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004
    ----
Did the change to store the information in the database fix the index page problem?

wow! what great unexpected results! :D

#29:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004
    ----
no, i had to add something to fix that as well smile

#30:  Author: Mohegan PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004

the ">" icon still stays as "unred" for me even though i've read this topic twice now.

#31:  Author: milod789 PostPosted: Wed 26 May, 2004
    ----
So far I have not had any problems with this. In fact, it works great. Much better than before. I do not know what is causing the problem for you.

#32:  Author: DreamAddict PostPosted: Thu 27 May, 2004
    ----


The red indicates where the index doesn't show properly, and the green indicates what pasQuale has fixed. Before, none of the "read indicators/eyes" on the index page worked. Now they all work except the top "ld4all news" and "recent discussions." .... which I think is no big deal, and I love the new feature!!

#33:  Author: Siiw PostPosted: Thu 27 May, 2004

LOL did you see what you just posted?

#34:  Author: DreamAddict PostPosted: Thu 27 May, 2004

wow, I should have shut the door.

#35:  Author: r3m0t PostPosted: Thu 27 May, 2004
    ----
It's a pity that the new posts were lost but I guess it's better now that they're stored in the database, because now I can read from all three computers.

rofl siiw :D too bad technodreamer wasn't around to see it siiw I think you deserve the bathroom detective title now ^^

But that's been working fine for a week or so now eh whatsthat

#38:  Author: JaRoD PostPosted: Tue 01 Jun, 2004

I have to read some posts several times before they are marked read. It gets quite annoying when I have 100+ posts to read. Even the "mark all topic read" doesn't always work for me.
Any ideas how I can fix this, if it's even possible to fix.

I use Mozilla Firefox.

#39:  Author: milod789 PostPosted: Sat 19 Jun, 2004
    ----
What happened ??? Itís not working anymore. I have not really been on the forums that much the last couple of days. When I signed on today all the posts were marked as red. I hope this is just a temporary glitch. It was much easier to see new posts or posts that I have not read before.

#40:  Author: milod789 PostPosted: Sun 20 Jun, 2004

I take it back. It is working again. smile

Did you upgrade phpBB or something? The mod doesn't work any more.

#43:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Sun 15 Aug, 2004

it works for me.. and i didn't upgrade.. what do you mean by doesnt' work anymore?

#44:  Author: r3m0t PostPosted: Sun 15 Aug, 2004

It used to work, but now it's forgotten everything.

#45:  Author: Qu PostPosted: Sun 15 Aug, 2004

did you change or flush your cookies?

#46:  Author: DreamAddict PostPosted: Sun 15 Aug, 2004
    ----
works fine for me, and I have >290 unread post! colgate

I think once it gets >300-something it resets itself again.

#47:  Author: r3m0t PostPosted: Sun 15 Aug, 2004
    ----
I don't think so pasQuale. Besides, didn't you move it to the database?

I suppose I need to go on daily and mark forums as read for it to keep working then DA.
