Two Suggestions (edited for clarification)





wumingsden
I have two suggestions, or request:


  • Fix the View Latest Post link. Its jobs is to go to the last post of the Thread when clicked, currently it goes to the beginning of the thread. It'll be of a great benefit to be if it was to go to the last post. The problem only occurs when you Search New Posts - if there is more than one page then it'll go to the last page but not to the last post. It also occurs on the left hand side when you view a forums threads. The button on the right hand side works fine as well as on the index page Confused
  • Move one of the banner ads from view_topic.tpl and place it in the footer of the forum, just because I think it'll look more presentable.

There isn't a problem with the view latest post button.

It's your bwoser.
Scorpio
no0bie is right, there is no problem with the view topic link

About the ads, only bondings can decide

Concurr on the View Last and View Latest Post Icons. It's your bwoser. Wink
wumingsden
Sorry, I should have been more clear. I've updated my first post for better clarification. Anybody else have this problem or is it just me?

I like how the ads work. And i dont' have a problem with that either. It must be your browser. What browser are you using?

IE. Like I said in my updated post I only have problems with some of them, not all. For this reason I say that it isn't my browsers fault.

You need to cool off. Fast.
For Satan's sake, log to the MSN and talk to him like a man.
Seal this argument already...

Back to subject:
About the second suggestion:
A banner on the top = more user clicks.
Less amount of users are actually going all the way down to the footer.
Anyway, if Steve moves that banner to the button, he'll get less $cha-$ching.
Blaster
Yea i agree with helios. A banner on the bottam wouldn't get as much clicks. Sort of how the ones that used to be in one of the topics got taken down.

I think it would be better to put the banner once again between 2 posts further down the page instead of between the 1st and 2nd post

At the bottom it would be a great idea indeed!

That is of course if you dont want money

PS: Helios, Who is that good looking dude in your avatar?

Surely thats not you? Wink

DUH!
Steve NEEDS the money to pay for FriHost.
As he said, if i'm not mistaken, the ads are actually covering the cost of the 2 servers(300$+ per month ?).
Scorpio
Of course he needs the money, I was only kidding

Anyway you forgot my PS in the last post helios Rolling Eyes

There is a limit to the amount of ads Steve can put on each page.

Your post was removed because another moderatior classed it as spam.

OK'z, back on topic, I'll ask steve about it. What i don't understand is in some places it works, in others it doesn't Confused

There are two links to "view newest post" on an unread thread.
One of these uses the postid value for anchoring - this works.
One uses "#newest" anchor - doesn't work.



The behaviour is consistent across browsers, I've tested this on Opera 8.54, IE 6 and FireFox 1.5 .

We know its very serious, spamming is against the rules of the forum. That is why until N4L stops spamming some of his posts have the possibilty of being removed.
n0obie4life
Just shut up. Even if it isn't spam, my posts are still removed.

It's a phpBB bug, go report it into the bug report then.

Besides, you would just be contributing to the update list Rolling Eyes.

Another post from N4L in a very profound manner, well done

If that was true then the post above would have been removed. You are aware that no-one has anything against you other than the fact that you have been spamming the forums.

It was shut until I had the chance to speak to somebody. After when I have I re-opened it. I want to know whether anyone can actually use the button.

STAFF CORRUPTION / BIAS!!

Bondings doesn't seem to do anything about this!


Stop me if you've heard this... Rolling Eyes

BOT,

I've noticed on ocasion that the new post doesnt work. But most times it does. So I'll retract my previous statement that it works. Wink
wumingsden
You mean in some parts of the forum it works, in others it doesn't ? Or are you saying that its "got a mind of its own" (so to speak)?

Yesterday and the day before, one forum kept taking me back to the same place, after one of my posts. It's happened in the past, but only occasionally so I don't pay much attention to it.

It was this thread.

http://www.frihost.com/forums/vt-39327.html

I was accessing it from the "Get Posts Since Last Visit" link.
