Differentiating between read and unread posts


#1

I’ve noticed in the last day or so, its harder to tell the difference between posts you have read and those you have not.

Yes you can click on unread, but I used to just scroll down click on the ones I haven’t. Now its harder to see. My eyesight isn’t bad, but for those that do not have the best eyesight it can be difficult to tell the difference now.

I use a Stylebot to manipulate the forum to display how I want. I do this with a few sites.

Might be worth a shot if you’re so inclined. :slight_smile:

Can you explain this further @Lewys?


#4

Sure.

So it’s a Chrome Extension that allows you to manipulate a web page’s appearance.

Once installed, you can open the extension and select the element on the page you wish to manipulate. There’s a menu that allows you to change various things like the font type, size, colour and various other things. Once saved, your design will override the website design - just for you.


It doesn’t normally look like this, just as an example.

Thanks. I can feel a bit of experimentation coming on.


#6

There’s some reset buttons at the bottom of the menu on the right. :wink:


#7

Sounds like a plan @Lewys, is there a Mac version do you know? R-


#8

I’ll personally rather it just went back to how it was before so I wouldn’t need anything else.

But for those that like to tinker with things the browser addon may work.

If it helps, just adding /unread to the main URL shows just the unread topics.

E.g.:
https://community.starlingbank.com/unread

Or click here

Although, I don’t believe this shows new topics, but you can use /new too

You are able to set up your notifications so that a counter of new posts appears next to each topic - which may be helpful?

Just visit this page but change the username to your username: https://community.starlingbank.com/u/jamespratley/preferences/categories

That only works if you have entered a topic, I’m on about it used to be clear when a new topic had been posted because it was bolder. Now it blends in.

I have the Number in a circle by posts I have been in already, its ones I have not been in.

As you can see something I’ve not read is slightly darker, it used to be more darker, so easier to see.

True - although we’ve not edited the settings for this. I’ll look into it!
