It used to be that there was a line below topics that had had a post since my last visit. A day or two ago, that element of the user interface disappeared. Can it be brought back? The image below does not have that line between topics in which I have had the opportunity to see all posts and topics that have a post since my last visit, which was yesterday, I believe.
Adam said this in a different thread.
It appears to be more complicated than that. The image below shows the simple blue dot for a topic with 13 posts. I believe I have never viewed any post in that topic, but I believe the topic existed during my last visit (although I’m not positive of that).
I’m not remembering exactly what you’re talking about, so can you explain more? In your screenshot above, where would the line be? And it was just one line that separated the list of topics that had new posts from those where you’d seen everything? Unfortunately, there’s no way to go backward with Discourse so I can’t easily see what you’re talking about (nor do I see it on my other Discourse accounts
The blue dots are more complicated than I noted previously. The small blue dot seems to indicate a topic where you haven’t seen any of the posts at all. That’s in contrast to a larger blue dot with a number in it that indicates that the topic has X posts that you haven’t seen.
And, of course, the topics where the title is dimmed are ones you’ve read, versus those with black text titles, which have new content.
And as I started to report the bug, Discourse showed me a related thread that showed it had already been reported and fixed in the source, so it should come back soon. I’ll install the next beta once it comes out.
Sorry for the late response, and I’m happy to see that @BeakerJB provided an example.
Aside. I was promoted to caregiver. Even after all the discussions I had seen, primarily in AARP publications, about how time consuming and exhausting caregiving is, I was shocked. Fortunately for me, this should be a short-term situation.
I just noticed that the line separating topics that have had a post since my last visit from older topics is shown in the “all categories” view but not in any of the single category (Talk, Feedback, Comments) views. I usually do not use this view, so I don’t know if this view ever lost the line, but I will be more likely to use this view in the future.
