Show Subforum for Recent Unread Topics
« on: August 18, 2016, 07:47:01 PM »
Can we make it so the "unread posts since last visit" screen shows the subforum for each entry?  A lot of the devs post topics like "Updates!" or "Hotfix v1.1!" and it'd be nice to be able to tell what projects those are for without reading the whole post.

If that's not possible, it's fine, just a minor inconvenience.  But if it's as simple a checking a box somewhere on a BBforums backend...

Edit:  I guess it already does display the subforum, and the real problem is that they have subsubforums like "announcements" that don't have the project title in them.

I agree. more specificity would be good. being able to see what project a post if for would be nice!

Definitely will look into this. Thanks for bringing it up.
I'll finish something one of these days!

Looks like I will need to make modifications to the forum code (which, for the record, is based on SMF, not BBforums) for this. Not sure what the timeline on this will be, since I have other things that need addressing and real life is currently fairly busy, but do know this is now on my plate.

Again, thanks for the suggestion, its a problem I've noticed too.
