Unread messages
« on: Mon 2008-10-13 23:58 »
here is a trick I have found. Assuming you are permanently logged in then go to

http://forum.mosem.no/index.php?action=unread;all;start=0

this link will show all unread messages (including those you have marked as unread even if they are not unread since last visit)

Impressive! How did you find those arguments to add to the query? The regular address from the "Unread messages" link at the top is just the following:

http://forum.mosem.no/index.php?action=unread

as compared with your new suggestion now:

http://forum.mosem.no/index.php?action=unread;all;start=0

I could easily see the difference and I think this solves the problem of unread messages "disappearing" from the list when you're on "too often". Also, being able to mark messages as unread in order to return to them later is a very useful tool.

you can get to this page via a rather circuitous route - all I did was copy the URL when I got there so that one could get straight there.

Yes, the direct URL is a must, I've added it to my Bookmarks Toolbar now as my primary entry to the forum.

But I have not been able to find this route through the setup, and I also did not find any way to make it available for all users (it would have been perfect to put it up where the "Show unread posts since last visit." link is located), even after spending some time this morning.

So I am very curious about how you found it - perhaps I can find other useful features that way too.
