Req: UI to show Subscriptions / followed threads

(1/2) > >>

Greetings,

The Free Pascal / Lazarus project makes use of this forum system software. One thing I notice lacking in their forum implementation is the ability to search by threads I have posted to at one time.

Fortunately someone pointed out the "Show replies" capability. That is close, except once I have viewed the thread, then it disappears from that list.

The UI should show one row instance per thread, sorted by the most recent thread message post date. Threads unread / new posts to said thread not yet viewed by my ID / should be BOLD font. Once I have read that thread / new post / then the thread should show up in normal font... however unlike "Show replies" it should not disappear from the "Show subscriptions" view.

So it is a different way of slicing the data than the "Show own posts" view, which shows each reply... which I may have commented several times on a thread. The "Show subscriptions" would only list the thread once, in date order of the most recent post to that particular thread.

Several other forum systems I use have such a capability, and it is extremely handy to monitor threads I have posted to at one time or another.

Sincerely,
Michael

Hello mdlueck and welcome to sm.org!

Go in your profile page, then Profile Info > Show Posts... > Topics

In other words:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=profile;area=showposts;sa=topics

Is that what you are looking for?

Hello, mdlueck,

Thank you for the proposal. I'm looking to review the topic notifications functionality, and implement subscriptions for topics in the next major version, SMF 3.0. The description of the behavior you'd expect is useful, although I'd add a few more items to it, such as the ability to add a topic to the subscriptions list without necessarily replying to it.

You may want to monitor both unread replies functionality, and the topic notifications functionality. The latter gives you basically the list you're looking for, even though the notifications are actually targeted to email notifications (currently), however you can see and monitor their list from the forum too, in your profile:

Ema,
In my understanding, the expected functionality would be rather this:

So probably is something in between... :P

Ah, sorry! :D

Time for the second coffee.
