Quick Links Menus

Postby trilobyte » Thu Mar 17, 2016 1:18 pm

One of the many features we picked up in the big upgrade was Quick Links Menus at the top, and sometimes also at the bottom of the screen. This consolidated a lot of text links that had been on the page previously. It's a much cleaner look, but may take a little getting used to.

If you're logged in and click or tap on Quick Links, and you'll see something like this...

The menu lets you choose between your posts, new posts, unread posts, unanswered posts, and active topics... plus gives you access to search and the memberlist.

Also, depending on the width of your browser window or screen, you may see the nav-icon (also known as a hamburger menu) at the bottom right of the screen, and it should look something like this...

The UTC-08:00 bit is showing my personal timezone preference, and then it shows you links for our commerce policy, community guidelines, the terms of service and then also lets you choose to delete all the board cookies, which deletes the cookies created by phpBB which keep you authenticated and logged into the board (if you are having login or logout problems, deleting board cookies may help).

Is it possible to add Mark All Forums Read to the Quick Links Menu?

Nope, that's in the top right of the page.

Yes but it's not present on all pages. Not a big deal, just would have been convenient to have it in Quick Links as well. Thanks for your response.

It should be on all the category pages (I just double-checked on phone and desktop to make sure it's there). When you drill down into categories with multiple pages of topics, it should appear to the left of the page numbers.
