Features on EEVblog that I cannot find
« on: September 15, 2018, 05:41:13 pm »
Features that I see on other board and I can't find on EEVblog - please help me find them.  I spent an evening clicking and still not finding them.  Please note...  I'm kind of stupid and tend to miss obvious things!  Shameful but true.

Some of the features I often want to use but can't find here are like this:

1)  profile setting for timezone
2)  profile setup for email notification of various kind
3)  get notified when I receive emails per email


Are there these features?  I'd appreciate if you can point them out to me and say "HERE, stuipd!"

You guys need to take the ;u=<userid> part off the end of those URLs since those are specific links to your own user id's profile and won't link properly for another user.

tkamiya, if you go into your profile page, then hover over the "Modify Profile" link by the orange "Profile Info" button, you will find the links to the various settings pages.  Timezone is on "Look and Layout" for example.

That is why I replaced them with tkamiya's used id  8)

I hadn't noticed that.  Nice work!  :)

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

These features will make my life so much easier, at least on EEVBLOG.

Thanks for the tips, I have another little suggestion:

When listing forum entries, you list menu showns the pages that can be clicked, plus a "Go Down". What would be nice is a "Last Entry" button so you dont have to click at the last page, and then at the Go Down.
Last Entry should automatically scroll down on the last page.

Can this be done ?

Regards

There is a "Last Post" button to the right.  Is that what you're looking for?

i use that virtually every time I open a thread, unless it is new or one I have never looked at before.

Maybe I'm blind, but I dont see this button. Do you need to enable it somewhere ?

Farthest button to the right on the topic lists:



Is this the functionality you're looking for?

Hi, thanks, now I know what you meant.

This button is not present once you are inside a topic you have opened. IMHO, it should be available there as well. There is only the pages and a "Go Down".

If you want to go to the last post, why would you open the topic anywhere else but from the end?

(You can also just press the [END] button on your keyboard to get to the bottom of a page in most browsers, in case you're already part way down a page where there is no "Go Down" button link, BTW...)

...because I normally go the post that has been replied to a post I wrote first, afterwards to the last one.
Dont worry, just a habit.

There is also the option to "Show most recent posts at the top." in "Look and Layout", which for some people might be a useful setting for some people, depending on what threads they tend to browse, and how often.

It would be nice to have a similar button to go to the last post in a thread when you're looking at your own posting history using "Show Posts" on your profile screen, beside the link to your own post, so that it would go to the most recent post in the thread instead of going to your post.

Is that what you're thinking?  That would be handy.
