"New" indicators for hidden topics


I noticed in Extra a "New" post but couldn't find it... Then I remembered LG told me she had to hide the topic so my guess is the "new" is indicating activity in either that or a different "hidden topic." That is a confusing thing for someone who does not have the ability to see hidden topics. So wouldn't it be better if the "new" indicator only showed up on forums or topic list the user has access to?


LG Edit: *ahem* descriptive title for this thread ;-)

Actually, that seems to be a tricky thing.

If a topic is hidden, you don't want to confuse users who cannot see it with a NEW button they cannot make disappear other than by marking a forum as read.

However, it would be nice to have a NEW button displayed to mods and admins so they can be alerted to new posts in a hidden topic.

Hmmmm. emoticon

Re: "New" indicators for hidden topics


Thanks for the descriptive title LG, I knew what I wanted to describe but couldn't think of what to call it emoticon

I am also seeing new posts in areas I should be seeing the "New" indicators but the indicator isn't showing. The last one was on this board in a forum I have access to concerning the new skin.

It's late, I have to go to bed now...

You're welcome, Rick. I had to think about what to call it, too. emoticon

Is the "New" indicator missing from the forum listing, the topic listing, or both?

Re: "New" indicators for hidden topics


In my last example the new was missing from the forum listing but was present in the topic listing. Tis a bit strange but doesn't affect me as much as it would others because you know I look at everything anyway.

Re: "New" indicators for hidden topics


It sounds like a post was deleted. Did the name and time stamp in the topic list match the name and time stamp in the post list?

I don't think there was a post deleted in the topic.

No, the specifics are in the bibi enclosure. I have not seen it happen since then but it was really strange... I'll watch for a more public example.
