I Compose With My Ears
Hi. Is it possible to have an option to automatically have the "View More" button activated rather than clicking it each time I want to see more threads?
Thanks. Loving the new look!

Oh my gosh, I use RSS for everything. If I had to visit all of my daily websites to get my news, it would take forever. Using an RSS reader to aggregate headlines from each website all in one place is a critical time-saver for me.Hmm really? This was disabled on the other one. People still use this? Interesting. I'm not going to touch it for now, so no worries. I'm just curious.
Yes, which page are you referring to? Do you have a link, a screenshot, is it on a desktop, mobile? I'm afraid I don't recall seeing "View More" on the homepage, or first page of a multipage thread. But I'd like to find an answer for you.
I'm very sorry, I just found the View More you are referring to. It does seem strange, as all the other pages have page numbers showing at the bottom, letting us know there are 40+ more pages to browse.
Can you elaborate? What sequence of steps are you taking to see the threads? What page are you looking at?I think that new threads being shown in bold is not enough of a difference between old threads. Would be great if there's a bullet before the thread title that when clicked takes you to the first unread post. See KvR or Gearslutz for examples of this.
When looking at a list of threads inside a subforum, there's almost no difference between read and unread threads - only bold vs regular, which in this case don't look that different from each other.I see a ton of orange tags on the home page that say NEW, but that's not what you're referring to I bet.
I agree in your comments, ED, and it would be more useful – but I'd prefer to look at a page without a lot of orange squares. IMHO there are better ways to show new threads/unread threads than a very visible, orange and kind of large NEW icon next to each new thread, like for instance a • bullet. Or something.That NEW orange tag would be welcome in the subforums themselves!
Also, when comparing the regular thread overview at this and other forums, the font size is smaller here or the area is more 'busy', which matters if you read this eg in a studio where you have a mixer or MIDI keyboard between yourself and the monitor. This means that some of us need to zoom in to make fonts larger - but when we do, other pages start to look a little oversized. So there may be room for a more consistent use of font sizes...

I see what you mean. I'll look into it later today.I'm referring to when you enter the subforum. I don't use the "What's new" page ever, I just go through subforums. That NEW orange tag would be welcome in the subforums themselves!
Here, situation in Commercial subforum:

No NEW tags here, just bold vs regular fonts. Not enough
