    You need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the board and you should have a link there to mark as read.

    Sorry Lorna but I don't see a link whatsoever that you refer to. Scrolled to bottom of Overview screen and don't see it. Using Chrome here.

    You need to do it by board - the Overview is the home page for all boards. If you use the board links on the overview page or use the links in the menu (top left) you can go into each board. All the way at the bottom you have the link.

    So on a page like: https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/news-and-announcements-37 you should have the Mark forum as read at the bottom by the pagination.2c53d1d4-08cc-4e22-aaf9-85531cb907bd.png

    That is a step backwards, I think.

    I just added a new thread but in contrast to the situation until today my thread doesn't show up. I saw a red box in which I read that the post had to be approved before it will be visible for others.
    Must every new thread now first be approved before it will be published? :confused:

    It was the spam filter which caught that one.The topic is now reinstated here: https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/forum-feedback-468/ehre-1029764

    Why do I only see a 120mm strip of text slightly off centre of my 17" laptop screen? It looks awful and only occupies about a third of my screen width with big empty grey spaces either side.
    I thought it was meant to "scale" to the device being used?
    It is similar on my 24" Desktop Screen!

    As usual John, they don't care.

    EMOTICONS:
    There have been requests for more emoticons and there'll be over 1000 of them. These are already available in the current mobile version.

    I'm curious!! Hence a very simple question to those that requested this "important" facility - WHY?? Just what "essential" advantage do you get from having a 1000+ emoticons?

    I'm certain that most people could not tell you the meaning of the vast majority of those 1000+ emoticons - hence their use is meaningless!

    @dhn

    And also for anyone who is not able to see the option - 'Mark forum as read'

    Try this:

    [h3]Go to your profile Settings:[/h3]

    c3e599e9-2f93-44e3-a181-c8d8556171d3.jpg

    [h3]Under Settings- Select 'Yes' for Display number of new comments[/h3]

    e864cc51-6d54-43e6-afc0-caa06afe8389.jpg

    [h3]You will see a number and 'new' in green which indicates the number of new comments posted on that topic since your last visit:[/h3]

    We do care... We're taking notes of all your feedback, from all three communities, and feeding it back. So keep it coming!

    For the smileys, @John-Jay I think they probably just meant a few more... There are rather a lot now but they should be easy to use, right? I think the number of them was determined by the API they used to obtain them.

    Would be nice if 'mouse-over' displayed the name of the emoji, particularly the 'flags' :nerd:

    @VikramK

    I see the 'new' listing for each subforum. That's not the issue. It's the need to go subforum by subforum marking each read rather than just one button marking ALL subforums read at the same time.

    Way back when, it was the same problem till InSided DID provide the one button link to mark all read at once. Now it's back to the old (inefficient) way. Why?
  • VikramKVikramK Posts: 8,159 TomTom Moderator
    @dhn

    Yes, that feature is indeed missing with the new design/templates.

    Thanks for your feedback on this. I will add it to the 'Wishlist' we are preparing.

    Regards

    Agreed. It's awful and as I posted, without an answer from TT, it doesn't work visually on a p.c. monitor or laptop screen.
    It would appear they would rather spend money on a vanity project, to change something that's working, rather than something important e.g. routing down farm tracks and country lanes as the fastest route!

    The issue is NOT whether they are easy to use but that they are pointless since their meaning is unknown in the context of any Question (or any response) posted on an essentially Technical Forum!!!

    Just at random, I'm "easily" posting a selection, but I haven't got a clue as to their meaning, with respect to the "context" of any Question or Response that might be posted!!!!

    Perhaps you need to issue a Vocabulary/Glossary of their function/meaning??

    de - weil.....

    Dieses Forum ist ein "graus", ich kann mich nicht im deutschen Teil anmelden bzw. nur im englischen Teil schreiben?! Der Benutzername ist anders >:)

    Unten steht statt "DEUTSCH" - "DEUTSCHE".

    Bilder von alten Beiträge sind verschwunden....

    Positiv: statt nur liken kann auch anders bewertet werden

    Und zum schluss: TomTom ihr wisst schon, dass der Januar 31 Tage hat? Ihr habt am 30 geschrieben, dass das Forum 24h stillsteht, es war ja anders....

    @andy7 ;
    ein bisschen mehr Geduld sollte andy77 schon haben. 
    Schlimm finde ich das man unter dem alten Namen reklamieren muss.

    Well, this new forum layout is a bit different!! What happened here?

    I have a few issues using this new forum:

    1. Where're the subforums for navigation GO Mobile apps for IOS and Android?
    2. I can't see how to start a thread.
    3. A lot of existing threads don't seem to allow me to comment
    4. Where's the date (and time) of each post?

    I use a lot of different forums, and they all have different styles but this new forum is unintuitive.

    Regards,

    @Privateer UK

    I like the word unintuitive...........................  :) :) Think other users may have a more simpler word!

    I am struggling but found: 

    1. Under the category "Navigation apps"
    2. You have to select a Category, then a Sub Category, then an "actual thread"  then I can see a green bar at the  top right labeled "new Discussion"................... . 
    3. Not sure why - have not yet noticed that.
    4. If you look under your user name on the left; 3rd line down there is a time stamp - hover the mouse over and the full date/time is revealed. 

    Intuitive ..............   :)

    Hi

    I thought I had arrived at some unscrupulous website that had skimmed off all the posts and was replicating the official forum in order to drive traffic to it and advertise.  This is because the URL changes to vanillacommunities.com which doesn't provide much confidence that this is really TomToms own forum.

    What we have is now something that doesn't feel like it's part of TomTom's branding or communities.  It feels like TomTom have just washed their hands of everyone and shipped us all off elsewhere.
