Theres one thing i don't understand about discussion boards, and thats why they all miss a really convinient way to keep track of the threads you posted in.Yes, i know i can subscribe, and i know i can search for posts by my name, but it's really NOT as quick and usefriendly as i want it. The subscription feature is only useful when i REALLY need to keep track of a topic. Searching is a lot of work...At www.diskusjon.no they agree, and created such module themself - a really popular feature.It's very simple - almost identicle to do a search on your own username with no search text:It's created as a link up next to "view new posts", which displays a list of all threads you have posted in. This way you easily see if there has been any new posts in the threads you posted in. They do however exlude topics you did not participate in the last 30 days to prevent "never ending" topics to be at the top all the time.Can IPS please include such feature in next release?
+1 I pushed for this to be added way back, don't understand why such a fundamental feature isn't on this board. Also, would be nice if there is a little indicator next to a topic in which you've posted in and a tooltip telling you the last post on that particular topic. IPB is seriously lacking these little features that could make a big difference!
I've been asking for this feature a while ago to... a big +1!
What's wrong with clicking on the find all posts/topics link in your profile?
So the user clicks on the link and it shows all topics they have posted in and if there have been any updates right? Not bad if thats what it does.+!
Someone will make a mod for it if they don't add it, just ask someone.I would suggest clicking on it causing it tot ake you to a list of them with icons next to ones with updates, and it listing YOUR topics first then your posts in OTHERS' topics under them.
Agreed this is on other forums I visit and a very useful feature.+1 for it to be added (not a mod)
If you click on the member name and goto "Find members Posts" that might be a big help
It's not the same feature.
so "Find Memebers Posts" isn't good enough?All they would have to do is change it for memebr spisifics. instead of find members posts on your account it will be find my posts how hard is that?
No it isn't good enough. I never said it was hard I said it wasn't the same thing.My Posts (also called My Forums on some boards) sits in the header where my controls are and lists every thread that member has posted within. Threads that have recieved a reply are highlighed and bumped. It's a very quick way of getting an overview of what's changed since you were last there. I know I use it all the time on boards that have it and I agree it's something members get a lot out of.If you don't like it -1 it but personally I think it enhances the way people manage their threads. Anything that will make my board a more helpful and pleasant place gets a big :thumbsup: from me.
so something like View New Posts link beside the My Controls?
Indeed but more personalised. It's like a list of all discussions you've been involved with, not just all new posts.
This is not really feedback is it? It's a feature request. 2.2 is already feature complete meaning it won't happen till 3.0 if at all. You're wasting your time asking for it in here, you should use the proper forum and show your support there.
This is not really feedback is it?
I'd also like ot know which topics I posted in on forum view :whistle:
Maybe theres an other category better suited, but i just tested this version and gave feedback about it. I think it's almost an "error" that this feature is missing.Feature complete in beta 1? That's not very normal is it?

What's the difference between that and "View Member's Topics" from the user's profile?
