Too many forums, not enough traffic

Even the busiest forum (General) has maybe three new threads on a good day. I would like to see all new threads but clicking through 30 or so forums doesn't work. Maybe incorporate tags like "puppy", "training", etc. to future search reference.

Just a suggestion. I think you could get by with 10 forums tops.

Why don’t you just go to the active topics section to see all the new posts/threads? Am I misunderstanding what you’re saying?

I always go to Active topics first. If there is something specific I want to read about, I go to that forum.

I use the "New Posts" menu, when I'm on my laptop (and signed in). You can bring up a query with new posts from one day to a 2-week span of time. Then, just scroll down the list & see what interests you. Sometimes I use the "Active Topics" query.

I have noticed, however, that it depends on how you access the forum:
Laptop Browser, not signed in: "New Posts" will only display one day's worth
Laptop Browser, signed in: "New Posts" query can range from one day to 2-weeks worth
Android Cell Phone Browser: If not signed in, no "New Posts" option
Android Cell Phone Browser: If signed in, "New Posts" will only display one day worth.

I think that some people use an app on their phone to view the forum. I'm not aware of what the options are with that. I just know we are not all using the same method of accessing the forum, so we don't necessarily all have the same options available.

I do too. I like all the different sections when I post. Otherwise we would all end up posting under General and it would defeat the purpose of forum set up. It would be harder to find things.

Definitely better since you pointed me to active topics. Wish I could get to it on my phone via Tapatalk.

At the bottom, choose Discussions, then at the top you’ll see Timeline. Choose that. Tapatalk can be really flakey sometimes, and at times will decide to show you no posts.

Thanks when I do that all I see are a handful of threads I participated in. Maybe I need to adjust some timeline settings.
