"New" button under Active Posts
« on: August 26, 2008, 11:54:08 pm »
So after six months of using the "Active Topics" link up there, I finally found the little "New" button with the pawprint that shows up next to every thread.

Yeah. It's that small. ;)

Would you be able to make that a larger graphic, perchance? And is it possible to move it to the beginning of each line, instead of squashing it between the thread title and the page-number readout?

Thanks. <3

A very useful button and I've used it ever since Arbutus pointed it out!

Ummm... I see what you mean, yeah.
The "new" button is more obvious in the default SMF theme, which I use over at furry.ca... but maybe I can come up with something more obvious for use here... like a red or yellow button or something.

If you could do that without too much trouble, I'd be quite grateful. :)

I wiped up a couple icons based off the current one. They should stand out more and still look good with the current theme.
Note: I believe in the actually threadlist they are vertically centered. So ignore the fact that the alignment is a bit off on these examples.

Available in three sizes!


Furry example thread-name 1 2 ... 6 7 in somecatagory

Are Furries really like that? 1 2 ... 215 216 in madeupstuff

Another nondescript thread title... 1 2 ... 6 7 in everywhere



Note to Benjamin and/or Whitesheperd: feel free to use these if deemed suitable. I'm happy to contribute to my favorite forum.  If these don't work for some reason, let me know and I could probably fix it. (like improper size or what-have-you )

Wow, great work Vararam :)

I think the smallest icon you made looks best, its a similar height to the normal font of furtopia  (:


Please give 'em a click ^..^

I messaged Benjamin about this, and he told me he will not be able to get anything done on this for a while at least.

Wow. Since the old "new" icons didn't stand out much,  I never noticed how useful they were. Or rather, how useful the feature is. :)

I don't hit the "new" button myself... but I do often go by it to know which threads to peek into. It certainly helps out a lot.

Or to at least make them small again.

I never used the feature before and it is a little handy seeing what threads have new posts but still, it's a bit much on the eyes. x_x
