Mouse-over of thread titles

If we can't get the hover back, is there a way to speed up the preview thingy?

 

What's the previewy thing?

 

I have super missed the hover. I had no idea I was using it so much.

On the forum list, to the right of the thread title is a pull down arrow that shows the start of the first post. I think it's so if you're browsing on a mobile device, you get the hover functionality.

It may speed up once the server gets moving faster, but intially it was as slow as opening the page (if it even loaded).

Now that the forum is moving a bit faster I see that the drop down arrow gives you the first AND last post. This is really neat. It allows you to see how much a thread has rabbit trailed. ;)

I miss the hover too. The down arrow still takes time to load - I used to scan down the list quickly, choosing to open the threads I was interested in or could help with.

Yes, please, please, please bring it back! I actually didn't even get on the forum for the last couple days because I didn't feel like bothering with it when I can't preview the threads. It really makes a world of difference!

Me, too. :( Any word on whether we can get this back?

I too, find myself uninterested in weeding through so much new content without the hover feature. Pretty pretty please bring it back?

My DH got tired of me moaning and wrote a little fix for me - it only works in Chrome at the moment, but he said if you want him to he can look at doing it for firefox too. It's not as good as the old hover mode, but it's better than nothing.

 

If you download https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B2_Hn_5YNavcNkpnNmRtcWVheFU

and then click the wrench on the right hand side of the chrome screen, open tools, then extensions, and drag the file into there - enable it and you'll have a kind of hover feature back.

Definitely need the hover feature back please! Often the title is obscure and the hover saves a ton of time. THANKS for all the hard work!

Love this! I kept forgetting that I had opened the preview, and then accidently x-ing off the page after reading it (I always open in a new window).

Thank you! I was a little put out with the changes here at first but frankly, it's now better then the old boards and still getting better everyday.

Thank you!

 

I can't tell you how much I (and probably others) appreciate your willingness to listen and make changes!

The hover feature helps a lot! Thank you very much. I especially like the little button on the bottom that allows you to go directly to the new posts. It is rather nice seeing both the original post and another one, also. (I am getting two of the original, but I assume that is fairly easy to fix and I'd much rather have double than none.)

 

Thank you!

Wait, does this mean I can't preview from my iPad now? I don't see the little icon there any more so now I have to click on the post to see it??

It looks like that on threads that I haven't clicked on/read before, I get two of the original post & the most recent post. However, for threads I've already read (seen some posts of), I get the original post, the first NEW post (that I haven't read yet), and the most recent post (which is sometimes the same as first new).

 

Pretty neat stuff.

:-(. That's what I was seeing on my iPad and now it's gone.

Yep. I'm really liking the new features that are gradually trickling in.

This new hover feature is 3x better than the old one. The old one gave you just the first few lines of a post.

 

Loving all the new features, and THANK YOU John for all your patience and hard work. :thumbup1:
