Hey Gregg (Admin): Can we PLEASE have "View All" back?(5 posts)

Hey Gregg (Admin): Can we PLEASE have "View All" back?nigel

I'm still getting used to the new forum layout, but I've noticed one thing in particular that's driving me nuts. I'm so used to the old "View All" feature, and enjoyed it so much, and I'm big-time bummed that it's not still available.

Many of the threads have so many responses (and responses WITHIN responses, keeping "relationships" going on the board), that I find it discouraging and time-consuming to have to click and read EACH POST SEPARATELY. Can something be done to get this feature back, please? I find myself reading much less on the board than I used to because of the inconvenience of having to flip back and forth constantly between the replies and the main page for a particular thread.

I'd dig a response to this if you've got a minute, and I certainly hope that it's a possibility. It just made the whole thing much more user-friendly and, well, more of a community. Being able to see all of the replies on one page (scrollable) was the way to go.

Big thanks,

I'll second Nigel's complaint (in a BIG way!)

I totally agree with Nigel. I can see myself spending less time on the message board if I have to go back and forth in each thread to read all the replies. I hope this can be fixed.

Use the printer-friendly version like he's said from the beginning and about every other day when people b!tch about the change. If you'd bothered to read his replies you would know that it's not possible at this time. It's not like he can just flip a switch or something and there it is. Would you rather the board crash every week instead? How about some cheese and crackers with that whine?
The printer-friendly version works, after all.nigel

Something tells me that "ARRGGHHH!!!!!" is really our friend ET in disguise, but whoever it is, they're right.

I'd been out of town for a week (no board access) when the switch took place to the new format, so I didn't see Gregg's notes/comments/instructions. After you click into the thread, click the "printer-friendly version" link in the upper left-hand corner. It doesn't print anything automatically, but gives you all the replies in an easy-to-read format. Gregg's alright by me.
