I love the "View active topics" button at the top of the "Board Index". Is it possible to make that stay at the top when I go to other pages within the forum? Not a bit deal, but it would save me one click and a little load time each time I go "Board Index" > "View active topics".
I use "tabs" in my browser. What I do is open "view new posts", which gives me a list on topics, that have changed since my last visit. I then browse the list and click "open link in new tab" (center-mouse-button in my browser/configuration).
When finished browsing the list, I have all the topics, that I want to check, in each tab. Read the story, and close the tab...
The same could be done on the "active topics", but with "view new posts" you get a shorter list, limited to topics I haven't had interest in.
Hope it is useful,
