Every time I sign on, the topic categories are in a different sequence. Not only do topics appear in random sequence, but topics disappear and reappear. So tonight, I can’t see the XJS or the XJ forums. Pub comes and goes. And so on. I suppose this is a feature, not a bug, but can someone 'splain to me the mechanism and reasoning?
A recent change.
Seems Now in order by newest post.
Haven’t had the other issues.
I just go to the “all categories” listing.
Edit: Yep, just checked. Now Site Feedback is first.
Now it the XK forum up first, it’s a merry-go-round.
Latest shows them in order of latest post.
You can set your default in https://forums.jag-lovers.com/u/michael_frank/preferences/interface, but unfortunately you can’t select a single category or a list of them.
That all makes sense, but @Michael_Frank is also having this problem.
Anyone else notice this ?
@Michael_Frank can’t see those two categories because they are on his mute list.
If you mute a category then it doesn’t appear for you (in top, latest, or new).
I can go in ans see the categories I muted earlier but don’t see how to add to the mute list? How is that done? I’m wishing to mute categories that were added after I set things up originally.
Just click anywhere in the muted list, a list of categories you haven’t muted yet will appear. Select as appropriate. In your case the direct link to your mute list is: https://forums.jag-lovers.com/u/John_Walker/preferences/categories
Ah, I see. I needed to click in a white area in the muted list box to do it.
So…it’s a feature…that’s pretty funny.
That the software displays the categories you haven’t muted in order of latest post has been a feature of discourse since the day we went live.
Perhaps I misunderstand what you’re objecting to?
