[FR] Topic Dates and Names

Pages: 1 5 replies

Not sure if maybe I’m imagining things; but I think I recall that from the topics lists, the name and date/time stamp show was that of the latest reply in the topic. Currently it shows the creator and time of creation of the topic. If that’s the way it’s always been, then great! I do think that being able to glance at when the when the last post was made from the topics list page would be helpful though.337D71B4-1678-4DB0-871B-B894D85F52DF

On desktop we show the last post:

On mobile we run out of visual space.

On the homepage I find the last post a little confusing because it doesn't show the topic:

When I get time I might rework this a bit.

Ah! Got it, fair enough!

Since we never really had a mobile version before, I was just used to seeing the ride side bar area!


I need to double check the red / yellow folder icons are working properly for new posts in a topic.

When browsing on mobile, the way I know if I want to click on a thread is by looking for recent post dates. I think that used to be the view we had back in the day. I don’t find the original post date to be useful at all in this scenario. When the site first went back up I was only using my phone and didn’t think anyone was posting anything cuz it looked like the below screen shot of old dates. When I finally got on a computer I saw the dates of the recent posts and that these threads were in fact active. If the view isn’t changed to most recent post date I don’t find it beneficial to browse on a phone at all.


Mobile does create a challenge for displaying content.

I don’t find the original post date to be useful at all in this scenario.

I think I can add "Last Updated: xxxx" for mobile as well.

A couple of hints…

  1. Landscape mobile shows the last post in a thread
  2. I've added a mobile friendly latest posts page.
