Thread filtering and new / today's posts
I have a few questions / feature requests about how this forum works. I may be overlooking something, and hope Iím not asking too much.
I visit the site every day and try to keep up with whatís happening and how everyone else is doing things, if I see a topic that either looks interesting or that I may be able to help with I read it and respond appropriately.
However the new posts and todayís posts do not match up. Many days especially at the beginning of term I donít have time until I am at home to read. So I expect not being on the site all day the todayís posts and new posts should be about the same. Donít get me wrong I access the site at work if I have an issue but canít justify casually reading it while we are so busy.
Here are my questions;
Can someone explain the difference between the whatís new and todayís posts?
Can I filter the todayís posts to exclude certain forums or tags? We do not use SIMS here so filtering those posts out would help.
Following the idea of filtering the new / todayís posts, can I filter out certain threads? Sometimes I see the same thread day after day because it is a hot topic or ongoing issue but does not apply to me.
There are some forums that have multiple thread types, discussion and question. When I have the time I like to search for unanswered questions and see who I can help. Can we get a feature like this?
