Brand new community forum design - 3/30/21

    I just noticed something, the Ask a Question button is on all the pages which is a good thing, but on the actual thread pages the pulldown menu is lacking the "Idea" choice like it is on the Home and Discussion pages.

    Can this be added?

    Also is it possible to make hyperlinks visible without having to hover over them?
    It is very hard to tell what is a link and what isn't especially when people are using text like:

    Thanks to whoever made the URL "visible" with the new site!

    Hello all,

    There was a previous comment that mentioned marking all as read. I wanted to comment that this can be done by category.

    I hope this helps!

    @Quicken_Tyka That is nice know, but it would also be nice to have back the one what allows you to mark all categories read at the same time.

    My general flow use to be to read/respond to all the threads that I'm interested in, then mark everything read.
    That way when I came back I knew that anything that was marked new, I haven't seen it before.

    @Quicken_Tyka  What you state requires that we go to the Categories tab and then click the individual forums one-by-one to clear the messages.
    The prior method, and what we're requesting be re-instated, is a SINGLE click to "Mark All Read".
    This new  method is a PITA.

    @Quicken_Tyka, I very much dislike the new community format. It seems to be much slower that the previous one. Not being able to "Mark all read" is deal breaker. Having to go to each Category and "Mark Read" and wait for the page to repaint is a PITA!

    YUP - I also wish there was a way to mark - ALL READ -
    so I know which entire topics are totally new
    vs ones that I have read (dim) or that are actually new (bold) to me -
    ..... at the end of a browsing session - want to mark ALL READ - so know for next time

    FWIW, I have marked certain categories to follow. Then on the Discussions page, I choose Following and it shows just the discussions in those categories, with the most recent at the top and any that are new or have new comments in Bold.

    As soon as I have opened a discussion, the title turns gray until there is a new comment.

    When I start a new session, I scroll down until I see the first bold title then work my way up to the top.

    Note the page does not refresh itself if you leave its browser tab open and then return; I must refresh it manually to see what has changed.

    This works for me, YMMV.

    With the older version of Vanilla there was some trick you had to do that involved copying the end part of URLs to make this work, but I think that is no longer needed.
