    Main Index Suggestion

    Eileen: I have another suggestion for you. On the Main Index, would it be possible to move the "Posts" column over to the left of the forum name. When I am scanning to see what forums to open, I scan down the forum names for the forums which I normally visit. When I get to one, I look over at the "Posts" column to see if there is anything new for me to look at. With the long distance between the forum name and the "Posts" column, it is slow to try to follow the lines over to the correct numbers for the forum I am interested in.

    I think it would look ghastly! [img]/w3timages/icons/sick.gif[/img]
    Seriously though, I know it seems a long way over there but it really is the most sensible place.

    Well, I always have gone for usability over asthetics. [img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img] If you really dislike it that much, then how about putting the number of unread messages right after the forum name in parenthesis.

    I'm sure this was discussed before [img]/w3timages/icons/thinks.gif[/img] .
    How about alternate row shading as within each individual forum?

    Re: Main Index Suggestion

    Or how about being able to highlight just the rows for the forums you are interested in?

    OR, how about having the choice to view all as it is today but add a option that when you select a specific post you can select to chose only those you have added or replied to. That way you don't have to keep paging to find those your involved with.

    I do NOT think that WWWThreads has the capability of having a USER defined interface. I don't recall of to many forums that even give you the choice of threaded vs flat.

    Re: Main Index Suggestion

    Sorry, guys. This is not high on my list of priorities at the moment. The next pressing concern is a major upgrade to the latest version of w3t which is much smoother and slicker.

    Re: Main Index Suggestion

    No problem. However, would you keep it on your list of things to do when you are bored?
