How to show threads as read?
Permalink  
 


Greetings, I'm new here.

I'm trying to figure out how to mark threads as read so only threads show up that have new posts. I don't wish to open each thread that I may not be interested in just to mark it read. I search the forum and didn't find an answer. Sorry if I missed the obvious. Appreciate any help offered.

Hello and welcome to the forum, Dennis!

On the homepage, right under the login/registration at the top-right corner of the page, there is a "Mark All As Read" button. Click this, and all threads will be marked as read.

Thank you, found it.

I guess the way this site is set up that the old threads will show even after they are marked as read, or is there a setting I'm missing?

Thank again,

Dennis Fetters

Yes, they will still show. However, if a new reply is added, the thread will be bumped and highlighted in Bold Print to distinguish it from the rest.

Thank you again, while I'm on a roll of getting questions so generously answered, how about setting auto quoting when I post, so your answer shows in my reply?

Do you have paid members, so that we can support the forum?

I'm afraid "auto quoting" isn't in the software options, but if you want to quote someone, click the "Quote" button at the top-right of a post and it will take you to an advanced post editor with the quoted message.

Hope this helps!

No, everyone here is volunteer, even the staff. I've been thinking of starting a donation thing to help access "Gold" features but activity fluctuates here a lot, so I decided against it.

 Thanks for all the help. I'm sure many people would be happy to pay $25 a year to help cover the forums costs and moderation, if you even re-think that.

Probably. I just haven't met anyone willing to do so yet.

Really? Thank you so much! I've added the donation column at the bottom of the homepage.

Also, I was looking over your profile and did a Google search. I'm sorry I didn't realize who you were straight away (I still don't know a lot of the players in this field)! I must say it is a great pleasure to have a legend on board. I hope you enjoy your stay, and thanks again!

I think that was a smart move. I do believe in supporting a forum, that is where a good deal of information is distributed and found.

 

You just got your first year of ad-free service.

Travis has to get the system of payment linked in some way so that the donations can go through.

No worries guys, I've found a couple of solutions I think might work, but I have to run them by a certain "expert" first.

The moment we've all been waiting for for years will come soon, just give me a bit more time.

Heh. It doesn't really work like that, though.

I know, it's taking forever, but there's lots of things on my plate right now. And getting a credit card is a lot harder than I thought it would be, given my life situation. Nothing in life can be simple it seems...

I just hope that, if nothing works out, Dennis could get his money back. I'd hate to see that amount of money go to waste.

 You're just now figuring this out? XD

The moment you think something is going to be easy be prepared for a hurricane of frustration to come.

As I said before fellas, No big deal and no big hurry, and I wont be needing the money back.. My motto is; "nothings easy", and no truer words could be said. Once you get the ball rolling and organize a better forum layout, you will get some of those people running away from that rotor-wing forum, that is if you can keep the troublemakers out.

You got a good start with Hillburg and some others that are already here.

Hello Mr. Hillberg!

All is great here in China, working on new projects and making progress, although hard-going trying to teach people here the difference between toy-RC aircraft and UAV vehicles. They just bent the skids on one of our Yamaha R-50's over the weekend. Stupid; forgot to turn the fuel valve on..... again, for the third time I know of! I'm giving up on a few of our pilots and showing them the door to hire new ones with a better attitude.

Have fun when you are in China! Tell the Rotary Forum I miss most of them, but the others can kiss my ass!

Sincerely,

Dennis
