For those on Desktop, click "Go to Beta" link at top of page to test out new version
I know most of you are Alphas, but I need you to be a Beta tester. I have been working with my guru at the Webmaster Academy and we think we have a pretty strong update to the desktop version that we would like you to test. We have had some brave users testing it out for the last month and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.


Also, on nav bar are Quick Links to your favorite forums. This list is customizable by clicking the Image: http://www.tigerdroppings.com/images/layout/settings.png
icon at the far right. Note: For smaller screen resolutions (eg, iPads), some of the forums at the end of your Quick Links list may not display on the screen. Please keep this in mind when adding forums to your Quick Links list.

The Forums link to the right of the TD logo will contain the list of all forums offered. When we add new forums, they will appear on this list, and will be available on the My Forums and Quick Links customization pages.

At the top of each forum, there a three ways to sort the topics:

Active: sorted by last post date/time descending...which is the sort everyone sees now and is the default sort.

Trending: uses an algorithm to sort the index based on several factors that I cannot reveal...it is a closely guarded secret...if you haven't been on the board for some extended period of time, viewing this sort may help you catch up on the more popular threads of the last day or two.

Recent: sorted by thread start date/time descending....to be used to see the most recently started threads...comes in handy on a busy board where you may miss newer threads that are quickly pushed down.

The Trending link on the Quick Link nav bar will show trending topics across the entire site. Once you are inside the Trending list, you can view Active and Recent topics across all boards.

On mobile, you will see that the quick way to jump to the forum list is now on the top right of the page.

We welcome your feedback.

Is this a precursor to the official TD app for iOS and Android?

And it of course says "Leave Beta" if you want to exit out of that.

I like it. Less clutter with the forum links down the side, more space for posts.

Me either. I hardly ever use anything but mobile now. It was a hard transition from desktop to mobile

That wouldn't happen if you hired me to be your DBA.

Can we blame Gary Chambers' Henchmen for a cyber attack. Sounds Better.


On topic:
I like the new "active" and "trending" feature from an IT nerd's perspective.
