    Default My Posts (etc)

    I can't say I'm a fan of the new look; something about old dogs and new tricks, I guess - but I'm getting there.

    Two niggles that Red5 might be able to fix:
    • Formerly (in all previous GUIs) you could <Tab> to the Save button.
    • When I click My Posts (on this page) I get a rather annoying drop-down: I've already said I want to see my posts; the selection should at least default to My Posts. But more annoying than this, neither of these My Posts (that is My Posts>My Posts) gives me the same listing as the My Posts link on the Members Page (the listing I was hoping for when I clicked on My Posts on this page - that is, the one you're looking at now!)

    I'm not sure there's much I can do about this, but I'll take a look.

    Right, there's a distinction worth noting here.

    Subscribed threads:
    The link in the members' area is actually a link to your subscribed threads. You can subscribe to any threads, even those that you've not contributed to. In the upgraded forum you can find the link to your subscribed threads in the Quick Links menu. By default the forum is set to subscribe you to all threads you post in, but you can control this via your profile settings.

    My Posts:
    The 'My Posts' menu is actually providing access to your posts specifically in two separate ways - threads you've started, and posts you've made.

    Exactly! So why doesn't the link in the Membera Area say Subscribed Threads, rather than claiming to be My Posts (which it's not).

    No, mine. (I'm reminded of a LaTeX error message, that rated errors according to 'badness' (sic) An error of 'Badness 10,000' was a virtually imperceptible overrun into the margin).

    I've now found Subscribed Threads, hiding under Quick Links.
