action=recenttopics not working
« on: 03. March 2015, 20:11:55 »
My preferred link to access the forums is https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?action=recenttopics which used to display the latest threads, but it has ceased working this week.

Hi mxx, you can keep an eye on the "Info Centre" at the bottom of the main forum page, it works, not the same but it works :)

Cheers,

That's also 'broken', it now lists the same thread multiple times for each new reply whereas in the past the thread would only appear once in the list.

Can they also fix the multible entries as well as it does not reflect well to guests, new users.

Hi Guys, I have a temporary work around for this.  It suits me and maybe you's will like it to although it may mean installing an extra application.  Here is what I did.

1. Install the "QuiteRSS" program. (or use your favorite rss feeder)
2. Get the rss feed for the "Topics" section. (I went to Manjaro's main forum page and from the bookmrks menu selected: Subscribe to This Page - Subscribe to "Manjaro Forum - Topics)
3. Copy the link from the address bar.
4. Add new feed to "QuiteRSS".
5. Enjoy watching the recent topics board again :)

Better than that, I have a second monitor running atm and have placed QuiteRSS on it and still have full use of my other monitor  8) see image below.



Hope this helps ya all.

Cheers,
darso.

Hi guys, take a look at this topic for a "dirty" solution to recent topics.

https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=21142.0


EDIT:
Thank you Ringo :)



Cheers,

One should also not be seeing the same topic here more than once, at times you only see like two topics repeated over and over.



I look at this section and reply where I feel I can, I don't browse the sub forums so without this functioning correctly I simply don't bother.

Right at the top of the forums main page there is a drop down section called "News", this section contains a link in it to a thread "Info on 504 gateway errors" that explains this issue and what not to do ( AKA re-hit submit when you get this error). The problem is that nobody seems to ever read this.

Hi guys, another good thing about using QuiteRSS (or your favorite rss feeder) is that you can reply from within application itself.  I am really liking this app as I can be on the forum through QRSS and be looking for answers on the other monitor at the same time which means I can help find answers and info to help (or try to) people a little more :) this can only be a good thing.


Cheers,
darso.
