Display unique threads in Latest Posts

This is pretty self explanatory, display unique threads in Latest Posts on the main page of the community forum. Right now any popular thread will just clog up that entire section, and it's pretty pointless since the thread gets highlighted and goes to top anyway when someone new posts. If displaying the popularity of a thread is also a concern then there could be a number of posts stat in parenthesis somewhere showing how many of the latest idk 20 posts are in that thread.

Good to see some forum updating being done Ok

While you guys are at it: There are still several section that are being shown on the latest posts main feed:

- Off Topic

- All other community promotions than sports ( not sure if those do show on the new "latest promotions" area )

- Betting help & Poker help subforums ( probably all other helps too ) To me this seems critical, considering that people searching for help on the Unibet main page are guided to forum to find answers.

 

Heavy forum users like myself who have this page open all the time while being online, are used to just click refresh every now and then, and now that all the new posts aren't shown on the latest posts, it's somewhat annoying.

 

Then there's also this bug on all the promotion sections:

I was happy to see the "options" appear on the promotions couple months ago ( it wasn't on those sections earlier ), so that I'd be able to float the ones that I use most, but now that it got placed on top of "start topic", both buttons are unclickable.

 

That's all for now Happyshy

I just think the 3 columns width of 3:2:1 lead naturally left to right, wider columns for more important info going down in width for less content, and having each level at the same height makes it look more uniform and pleasing. Would it be possible for a return of the "load all previous discussions" on the latest post section? very handy.

@Purps , promotions shouldn't be shown in that feed. If promotions are shown there, we'll have 6 posts for the same promotion. We've added the latest promos in the right side, to show recent promo threads with activity. 

For off topic and help sections you'll have to discuss it with @Jeppe-Unibet Smile I think it helps a bit that we've now got the help posts at the bottom as well - so you can easily check recently created threads that don't have an accepted solution yet

@Purps  will push an update now with the buttons issue on forum pages fixed Smile

@GR1ZZL3R , I liked the idea as well, it just doesn't work Smile

Unfortunately, I can't add that link to the current lates posts component. The current one is the standard one which can't be customized much. The one that was active yesterday was completely custom made, but as mentioned above there're some issues with that solution Sad

EDIT: but there might be a way around it with the link.Will try something later today Smile

@Stubbe-Unibet 

This all souns good.

Now if you could also make it so that the unread posts on all the separate sections ( Latest promos, latest idea activity, and the help post on the bottom of the page ) would show bolded, just like on the latest posts. It would help a lot to quickly see if there's something new there.

Adding to my previous post:

Clicking on the bolded ( unread ) topic could/should also take me to the first unread post on that thread. Now it takes me to the last post of the thread.

@Purps You're saying that the off topic + help and support posts are or aren't in "Latest Posts" feed?

I believe the bolded threads taking you to the last read post of that thread, will only work if you go through the boards themselves and not possible to change in the feed boxes Sad

If I go to the off topic section and click "count to 10,000 in pictures" or any other section, it just randomly dumps me in the middle of the section, page 86 out of 259 for example. It's always done this though and doesn't seem to happen in any other section that I've noticed.Wonder

 

Edit:  It does actually.

Sorry, other stuff came up and also noticed quite a few minor things that should be changed, so never got around to push the update earlier. Well, it's live in a couple of minutes Smile

Unibet Poker Expert

@GR1ZZL3R , if I remember correctly, you'll land on the first page with unread posts (unread by you, of course) - so in the example you've read posts until page 86 Smile can't say if the feature works though Very Happy

None of the posts posted on those forum are shown on latest posts. It's been like that for a long time now.

I think it turned like that when there were some new sections added to the forum tree. Can't remember the exact time.

@GR1ZZL3R 

Yeah, just like Stubbe said, it takes you to the first unread post by you.

You can use the "options" menu that you see on the right hand side of the page when you enter a thread and hit the "mark as read". After that you'll see the thread on bolded font when there are new posts on it, and opening the thread lands you on the first unread post.

You can also for example open the "off-topic" forum and now mark the whole off-topic forum read at once by click on the "mark all as read" on the options menu.

Charisma horse race posts have vanished from my latest contributions, something to do with this new setting?

It was easiest way to find my answers Annoyed

Edit: and can you or @Ray-Unibet  put cl competition somewhere that peeps can see it that it has action. Just to be fair for everybody and to remember to give their answers Wink

Thanks @Purps 

I've just spent 5 mins flitting in and out of various sections and using the options to mark them (which I hadn't tried before Thumbs Up ) Whatever I mark as read or new, when I go out and back in and click a topic it now takes me straight to the first page. Wonder It's not really a problem as I like the "All recent threads" on the main community page to catch up and now all the comps and promos etc aren't cluttering up the main page but are still readily available, an improvement.

@GR1ZZL3R 

It is working just as it should Smile

If you have marked a thread "read" and open it, it opens the thread on the start of it ( obviously ).

If you mark a thread "new", it thinks that all the posts are unread, and therefore opens it from the start of it again.

 

Just mark everything read, and from that on when you see a thread on bolded font it means there's something new there and opening it will take you to the first new post that's appeared after your last visit on the thread or the time when you marked the thread read.
