filtered What's new

Is there a possibility to use “What’s New” button only for some forums? In example whats new in english forum.

You’d have to build a custom search to do that, but you should be able to
save the search criteria as a ‘default’.

How and where build that search?

Use the “advanced search” capability, that’s where I recall it being. :slight_smile:

I was there but I don’t see any filter like “English forum” and “not readed”.
I see only “Your last visit” but it is not what I need.

Select the “search single content type”, then you’ll get a list of forums
to select from.

If it were me, I’d subscribe to the forums I was interested in, and then
just select “subscribed forums” from the list.

Sorry for not being clearer before.

You are right. In single content type there is something like that, but you must insert at least 3 characters and can’t use * and I don’t see Not Readed option. Searching is not sollution i think… :expressionless: It must be option like in different forums to read unreaded posts. Thank you very much for your suggestions.

Worked just fine here - looks like we have a language pack issue - under
“Find threads with”, the next line should indicate a date - in the first
dropdown, select “since last visit” and hit the search button at the
bottom of the “Additional Options” selection.

I just tried it here and it worked fine.

I’m not native English speaker but in my opinion “Since last visit” and “Not readed” means something different?
In example I can see in search result "filtered What’s new " thread but it is of course readed.

No, you’re right, “unread” and “since last visit” are two different terms.

What I tend to do when using the web interface is when I finish the
forums for a day/visit, I “mark all forums as read” so the messages that
show up on my next visit are the unread messages.

I think we used to have an option to view unread posts in the search
form, but I don’t see it, so I’ll ask our technical admin about that.

And that is the reason why I created that thread in “Forums Comments/Suggestions” (it was moved). :slight_smile:
That feature is very very useful :slight_smile: I’m using it in many forums (in example Polish SUSE forum forum.suse.pl) and it saves a lot of time :slight_smile:

So, I’m waiting for that option :slight_smile:

I found workaround for that. It is RSS.

Great! I obviously hadn’t even thought of that. :slight_smile:
