    I use View New Content quite a bit and this would be my only problem with 3.2. It's not the biggest deal, only adds a scroll down to the bottom and a few clicks but as I view VNC several times an hour, I'm starting to notice it. Couple of suggestions I've been thinking of:

    1. Change "Mark Community Read" to a delayed hover link, so you can mark the whole community read with one click but if you need to mark a specific application read, just wait for the hover to launch.
    or
    2. On the VNC page, add an option to "Mark (app_name) Read". So if you browsing the Forums, you would have an option to mark forums read. Example.

    Still a strange thing to nitpick over. The functionality is there and works fine.

    That's not the point.
    In my eyes, overall, I really like3.2 version, but since it's still in beta, we've been trying to point IPB people to some minor dings and dangs we don't like, or, in our opinion, may need some adjustments.

    It's back permanently. It's a simple option inside of the pagination generator.

    It should have a pagination, if someones visiting a busy forum for the first time in 3/4 days theres going to be alot pages of topics they'll miss out on.

    I'd also like an option to minimize the left bar since I will never use it or have an admin option to turn it off. I've changed it on my forum to work as it did in 2.3 as a view new posts link only, and its much better. Incredibly annoying going from a users profile to view new content and it showing latest members instead of posts.

    And just on pagination. IPS need to look at how Xenforo does pagnation. It's a lot slicker and more functional where there are many pages.

    A lot of places where page numbers aren't shown end up with a ton of pages and the need to skip past many so I agree this is necessary to ahve page numbers and I can't imagine it being a significant slowdown by simply retrieving a count.

    Here's why I need page numbers. I've arrived here today and there are 4 pages of results. I'm browsing through the list of topics in the results and have read and replied to a few. After I've replied I've got to click on VNC again to get the results back. Where was I up to? Was it page 1, 2,3 or 4. I don't know. I've now got to look at the topic titles and figure out what page I was on to continue where I left off. Pitiful.

    Now imagine a member that drops by your site once or twice per week. They could have say 20 pages of results. Those people are going to get mighty annoyed not having the page numbers and posting replies to a few and getting themselves up to date.

    If it's resource intensive then so be it.

    I'll be hanging off upgrading like I usually. I'll be watching with interest what members of boards think of 3.2.

    Because you may wish to simply make part of the site as read - might include third party apps as well.

    VNC I can understand (although it is not working at the moment), but on the forums not so important.

    I'd like to be proven wrong, but the number of new posts must already be available in the code - how else will the pagination know when to actually appear on the page and when it's not necessary. ;)

    Should be a simple change when the Beta is released.

    If IPS aren't going to bring back Pagnation then there's little point in having the 6 month and 1 year filter options. To get to the last page of the last year's VNC results here on IPS's own site requires the Next button to be pressed 948 times.

    I also want the number of results back as well. This then gives me some idea of how long it will take me to get up to date. Now with 3.2 I don't know and I don't know how many pages of results there are.

    Crazy!!

    Hello,

    The advanced search has pagination, so it's not hard to place it in the vnc.
    Another thing that is missing is the counter of unread content.

    Please bring those back.

    Ever since we went to 3.2, this has been one thing that has been a pain in the butt for me. I browse these forums and go through the VNC list to find topics that I want to help with, go through page 1, go through page 2, etc., but then when I'm on a page past the first couple and respond to a topic there, I have to go back into the VNC list and keep hitting next to get back to where I was.

    Even if we had the option to enter a page number to jump to, and got told that there aren't any results on that page, that would be better than having to keep hitting next to get to where we want, since each new page reload is just more resource-intensive calculating it has to do.

    1. Possible to move 'explore content from the community' to the empty white space on the top?

    2. Would it be possible to add old 3.1.x style navigation? i.e. Instead of just PREV | NEXT, how about:

    1 | 2 | 3 | 4 -- 14 | NEXT

    PREV | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 -- 14 | NEXT

    I personally liked the 3.1.x style navigation because it always told me I have xx number of unread pages and it's also easy to go back and forth. e.g. Sometimes you keep in mind, in page 4 there is something interesting to read based on topic title but at the same time you want to have a quick glance on what's going around. So you end up checking all unread pages quickly and then you come back to page 4 to read your unread topic.

    Thanks.

    i am going to have to agree that pagination on VNC is necessary - for the reasons I have stated time and again. If you start out on 24 hours and then change your scope to 1 week or longer you have to start from page 1 and click until you get to the point you left off.

    The server just requested MORE results but you still only see the first 25 so now your users must tax the server by hitting next umpteen times just to get back to where they were.

    So really what is more server intensive - these seems like needless and useless queries?

    I am humbly - PLEADING - please have an option to paginate & navigate day by day and allow users to step back for any given day.

    The returned set of records would be much more finite making it easier to calculate the number of pages.

    If you have 100 post in a day and there are 25 posts displaying in the VNC you would have 4 pages. - now that wasn't hard.
