Suggestion for new forum feature.

BrettWBrettW Member Posts: 607 Pioneering
Would it be possible for Scope to add a 'LAST PAGE' link to the forums as some of the posts in the Coffee Lounge (especially the game ones) have an awful lot of pages and it takes a long time to scroll through them all to reach the final page to start playing.

Thanks

    Unfortunately the '#latest' in the URL doesn't always seem to work (I have this problem too!), so I agree this would be a useful tool @BrettW. We are currently looking at ways to improve the usability of the community, so I'll add your comment to our list :) Thanks for the feedback!

    Good idea 

    If you access the thread through your email notification though it takes you to that comment so you dont have to scroll through

    As you look at a thread on the main page it has the time of the last post on that thread, if this was made live ie a hotspot, you could click on that time and go to it straight away . That would mean you were accessing the latest post on the last page?
    Actually I suppose the time would be hypertext?
    just an idea @Tori_Scope

    Page numbers would also be useful.  This is the only forum I'm on without them so I'd be surprised if it was a platform limitation.

    @OverlyAnxious I can't think of another forum i use that doesn't have page numbers.

    If I were redesigning the forum i would split it into categories e.g separate one for benefits another for employment etc etc

    Remember that Star sign topic I did last week? I couldn't get all the signs on it due to the 10 Poll option limit? Would that be fixable?

    Again, this is something on our wish list. As Tori mentioned, we have some limitations that frustrate us at times but we are actively working towards improving some of these things.

    Scope's 'sticky' posts. Whilst usually you want to see the last reply in a post, I feel with these it would rather be advantageous to be taken to Scope's actual message, i.e. to the top. I do give links to these, but sometimes need to say, 'scroll to the top', as this isn't immediately obvious especially to some newcomers trying to work things out. Thank you.

    Good point @chiarieds. For the time being, if you remove #latest from the end of the URL, it should mean that you'd be taken to the top of the post, rather than the latest comment. For example:

    https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/75929/coping-with-stress-low-mood-and-isolation-a-support-thread#latest
    https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/75929/coping-with-stress-low-mood-and-isolation-a-support-thread

    I know that it's a bit of a faff though, so I've made a note of that too.

    Thank you @Tori_Scope - that's helpful for now, & certainly makes sense, as it says 'latest,' so hopefully I'll remember. :)
    May I also plead (have previously mentioned this to Adrian) that we get a link put back to the 'Online advice & Support,' & 'Support Services.' The number of times I've forgotten to save a draft of a message when having to go back to the main site, then click on either of the above, find a link, then click back to leave such a link in a message (to find I've lost the message!).....Could possibly the 'Discussion Groups' section, say 'Discussion Groups & Support,' then, if needed, remove 'Recent discussions' under that, as there's already a header for that, so it's duplicated, & put 'Support' in there for example? Pretty please. :)
