Excluding article comments

  • Posted: 10 June 2004 08:44 PM

    Is there a way to exclude article comment threads when I click on the “View Posts Since Last Visit” link? For the most part I really like the new design, but I absolutely hate that article comments are included when I click the link.

    I will certaintly look into this feature.  Technically it’s not hard to do, but how much demand for it determines where it falls on the priority list wink.  So, comments on separation between Article Comments & The Forums are welcome below.

    Hey Burnum,

    I guess I’m the only one who’d like to see this feature added. Bummer…

    Well, one workaround that you can use is just to browse through by individual forum.  The ones with new posts are marked as such in the index, so you can just skip over the “TMO News” forum.

    Yeah but I really like being able to just click the “View Posts Since Last Visit” link. It’s much quicker.

    I’d be quite glad too, its a personal preference thing but I don’t like the fact that Article comment threads get mixed up with the Forums. Not only that but the article comments often appear to have considerably lower quality posts…
