Dear All,

You may have noticed that several 'new post icons' have suddenly sprouted as if from nowhere (Ok, so hopefully you should have!!!). Basically, if a new post has been added to a category since the last time you visited that category, you will see this icon. Due to the way I've implemented it, you will have these icons on every category until you visit them at least once, thus building up your profile.

If anyone gets any problems, please let me know.

Files changed:
f_adddiscussion.php
f_showforum.php
f_addreply.php

um. I think that's them all...! Just to make sure, better download all the files, eh? :o)

Yeah, I know, I know. It was late last night and it's not the only bug either :o}

You'll see lovelly error messages if you browse the forum while being 'logged out'.

I have fixes for both of them in my head, so will do them tonight :o)

/me prefers icons on left, as it's easier to scan :o(

put the icon on the left then :) and leave an empty gap for those categories which aren't new, so they still line up

that was a plea to Nelson, since he changed my code :o(

but yes, that makes sense, I like that idea. colspan=2 the 'topics' header cell, then add another column with width="0" containing the <img src="new.gif"> pictures in all the rows under that. That way, if none are new, you won't have a gap down the left hand side.

Does your grandmother suck eggs, Nelson? Maybe I could teach her how to do that too!

:o)

I hate to be an anally retentive pest =) but when you mouse over the "new" icon, the alt says "Erase Discussion".

Ooh,we need little end tags as well... Arun knows what I'm talking about - so that when we post we can have little things at the end of the post.
Or would that be a waste of space/time.
