Hi,
One more suggestion from me
Can I have that {New Post Indicator} link on my profile page along with usual links that appear top right?
:roll:
Thanks,
Vadiraj

As we mentioned in this topic yesterday:

Then the next time that we upgrade it might be there.

Thought pulling up the link from one page to other would be an easier task:
just edit pages and don't touch server-side (perl), but seems that was not the case

While thread watches (as mentioned in the
other thread) need some change at server-side.

Is that so difficult Cindy?

They are in reverse order by time, with the most recent post being on top.

The profile page is generated on the fly from database data programmically. We would have to hack the code that is owned by InfoPop.

hi Cindy:
thanks for your reply! i think you must refer to this page, everything works fine there.
but i found something is wrong with this page. the posts are not in timely order. i am not sure whether it is just me, or everybody gets the same?
thanks,

Everybody gets the same.
The exact order of the sort seems to be by day, by forum, by topic number (see the url to find the topic number), by time with the most recent post for that topic on top.

hi Cindy:
speaking of order of time, i found something interesting:
on a busy morning, when you go to here, each time you refresh the page, sometimes you may find the order of the posts changes.
sometimes when there are two posts in the same forum, A and B, in here, A may be earlier than B, but in here, B may be earlier than A.
Above are some of my observation.
Best Regards,

Don - I think that when that happens, it's because there was a new post in that thread, but it was deleted (by the poster or by the moderator, for whatever reason). I don't know if that's always the case when you see posts out of order, but I know it happens sometimes. At some later point, the order often returns to what it should be (ignoring the deleted post) - I think there's a delayed re-indexing process.
