possible?

Postby genkaku » Wed Jan 14, 2009 10:20 pm

If I am not mistaken, the only page on which a reader can link to "new posts" is the index page. If this is true, I wonder if it would be possible to create a "new posts" button on each page so that, having finished reading a topic of interest, a reader could travel immediately back to the new posts department rather than going first to the index page and then to new posts.

Since someone(s) obviously took some time and good effort setting up this forum, I hesitate to ask for still more ... but take it easy on me guys: I'm lazy -- what can I tell you? :)

Also, if I am not mistaken, once a response has been posted, there is no opportunity to go back into the post and edit the goofs I invariably make. If I've got this right and haven't nust missed something, I think it would be a helpful addition.

Whatever you decide ... thanks for all.

PS ... see what I mean ... next to last paragraph ... "nust" instead of "just." :)

To the latter question - there should be visible, after you post, in the upper right a red lettered button EDIT.

Dear Will -- Thanks very much for pointing out the obvious ... just put me in the corner with my pointy hat and I'll be good.

Thanks.

Greetings Genkaku,

I don't know if the software itself can do that, but if you bookmark the following...

Dhamma Wheel (View new posts)
search.php?search_id=newposts

... you should be able to get there in one-click.

Metta,
Retro. :)
