when choosing which forums to use as a filter for the vnc filter it may be better if the choice was to show what forums you do not want results for rather than the current option
that way any 'new' forums started after the member made their choice will no longer be filtered automatically plus members then have to actually make a deliberate choice on which forums they want not to see, instead of the current way which encourages the majority of forums to be filtered by default
Thanks for the reply
Frustration did get the better off me with my posts as had spent a fair amount of time trying to use this feature which coupled with the lack of any at hand info or staff reply did make me feel less than impressed
I still feel it was a big ask, expecting members to be aware of a blog entry from July (over 3 months ago) that seemed to be more about the new tracker setup
I can understand how those involved in the development/testing etc may think all would be aware, but certainly in my case a link to the blog or a brief description in the announcement would have been helpful.
Anyway after using it do have to say it is a great and very useful addition to ipcontent
super news shows the latest forum posts, gallery additions etc
my take is that all you need to do to reinforce a "new content view" rather than an "activity" one is just change the wording used on the links display and you will have something very similar to the current vnc
as it says
add counter into the ajax php routine so topic preview increases the topic view count when viewed
as ajax shouldn't be a performance issue?
if feel may be, then could add it so only kicks in if the instant counter updating is turned off
