answered Anyway to find favorite topics?

Recommended Posts

...such as FanClubs or started topics by your own.

This is the closest I can find.

I wish there was some way to favorite topics and having access to them quickly, instead of clicking through all of the forums navigating to it. And that is if you actually know where to find it.

Maybe there is some forums addon for that?

 

//Also, is there a way to search for members?

Viewing a List of Threads Started by You

For topics you have created, you can use the stream you linked, though you may also want to set [ Content Types ] to display only [ topics ] started by you, as it by default also shows status updates etc..

 

Favorite Threads?

The closest thing you may find is the follow function.

As you may know, you can follow areas / threads to be notified when something new is posted.

Now you can view the list of followed content by selecting [ Manage Followed Content ] from your profile menu.

At first it may render the list as empty, because it shows followed (RP) characters by default. Select to display threads on the list to the left.

Now you should be able to see all threads you are following.

Q: But following will be sending me notifications, that I don't want. What now?

You can follow and choose to not receive any notifications. It will add the thread to the following list without poking your notification box.

Other than that, I could suggest creating a thread in the Testing Forum. Only you, besides staff, can view your own threads in there, so you could use that section to store some information for your own use.

This is what I did to nicely keep track of threads I have created:

As you can see, I made all entries clickable, so you can make one thread, where you'll be having whatever you want, accessible with a single click, sorted as you wish. ;)

 

Member Search

Yes you can search for members.

Simply click the magnifying glass icon with the search box left empty. This will take you to the Search Page

From there, switch to members tab and perform the search.

Hope that helps! If you'll have any troubles, feel free to poke me. :ticking:

Too bad, I was hoping for a...more elegant solution, esp. because I follow quite a lot of threads.

 

Still thanks for your tiem, though!

 

Edit:

This doesn't soo bad actually:

Also, did people just create 10 streams while I am registered but barely did so the last 5 years?

Wouldn’t favorites wind up with the same issue because then you would just favorite a lot of threads?

That system didn’t exist before 2017.

Disagree. I'd favorize threads I want to find again to post something in, even when they are inactive - For instance, some topics I started, maybe fanclubs etc. while I would still follow threads that are prob only active for week or so (basically every new topic).

Ah sorry, thought you said something different when ponies (= Rikifive) explained to me how to use and configure streams a few months again.

Don’t disagree with me, disagree with the people who feel that way — the people who created IPB. We didn’t design this software, and as I said before I’m not about to rip it apart over small potatoes just to have a version update negate all that work. 

The options, all of the options, for content discovery, are already at your disposal here. That’s what they provide. Sucks I suppose, but it is what it is.
