Display of posts in a thread
Posted 08 April 2009 - 06:17 AM
I've noticed a difference in the way posts in a thread are displayed over the last few weeks.
Previously , if I selected a thread/topic, I would see a display of all the posts that had been applied to the thread in order using however many pages it was necessary with the ability to select the different page numbers.
Recently, if I click on a thread I see only the original post and the lastest one. Sometimes the two most recent posts. And there is a diagram at the bottom
of the page showing links for each post with a structure of how each post was replied to, i.e. was it a reply to the original post or to a later reply.
I find this difficult to keep track of which posts I've already read as this structure is not in chronological order.
Do I have the option to change the way this display works for me? I found the previous arrangement with each post in chronological order more efficient.
I ask if it's an option because this display is what I see on my own laptop but if I access BT from work , I see the older arrangement that I am more used to.
Thanks to the mods or anyone else for any assistance/suggestions!

Try going to the "Options" box - it's on the right hand side at the top of the thread and clicking on "standard view" - once or twice I've visited BT via a Google search for an older discussion and the search engine found it in "outline view" and my browser (Firefox) toggled over and kept the option.

That seems to have done the trick.

For example, here's your entire post brought up with all the codes by pressing "reply":
Here's your post with part of it removed manually by me:
When you delete the extraneous parts, make sure you don't delete the part between the first set of brackets you'll see when you hit "reply" (nor the brackets!), or the word 'quote' (the endquote) in the last set of brackets (nor the brackets). If you do accidentally delete the endquote, just type it in manually. It's needed to close the quote off and make it appear in a box.

Position your cursor between the two sets of brackets (you can make them go farther apart by using the space bar, if you like) and 'paste' your copied part of the post into the space. Then, go ahead and add your response. You'll get a nice box around the quote when your post is posted.
(Alternately, you can 'paste' your post part first, then highlight it,
and then, press the quote icon. I just did that above. These two ways do leave out the original poster's name, date, and time of post, though.
If your don't want the original poster's name, necessarily, then you can also manually type in a (bracket - the word 'quote' - end bracket) at the beginning, and (bracket - forward slash - the word 'quote' - end bracket) at the end of your quote.
(If I actually put in the marks I described, it would come out
In conclusion, all roads lead to Rome!
