Title: Navigating DDF
Post by: username on May 15, 2015, 03:18:07 PM
Handy tips on navigating DDF

As Dan writes, navigating all 1,000,000 +/- posts on DDF can be daunting, but on the other hand, there are a few things that can be done to keep up with all that happens on DDF. After all, you don’t want to miss all the good stuff that goes on on DDF.

1.   Definitely sign up for a login. This will enable you to quickly see which posts have been added to since your last visit.

2.   Start at the show new replies since your last visit.  Once you read a thread, and there are no new replies there, it won’t show up there. If you are not interested in following threads on the Tech board, or the Goods for sale board, there is a way that these will not show up. (Profile/Modify Profile/Ignore board options). If a threads  become not pertinent to you, you can always check the ignore box next to that thread.

3.   If you have an issue with a particular airline or credit card, post your question there. Then if there is a new reply, you’ll see it in the ‘Show new replies to your post’.

4.   As you look at the posts, if you see some that are constantly showing near the top, this is an active thread, and it may be worthwhile to read through the first wo and last two pages of the thread.

5.   Stalk. If you see guys that you like their posts in general, by going to their profile, you can see all of their posts. Maybe they said something in a thread that you weren't following.

6.   At the bottom of the page under ‘forum Stats’ there is a link to see only the most recent posts. This sort of puts everything out of context, but its good to check it out to see whats being posted about.

7.   There are also options for getting email notifications when there are new replies or new topics posted.

8.   Enjoy!

Any other ideas? Please comment!

Theres a search button. Use the search using the most basic words possible. Ex. If u are searching for an car leasing thread type in "leasing" and not "whats the best place to lease a car"

Using the advanced search (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=search;advanced;search=) is a great way to find stuff. Say you're looking for info about SPG transfers, you enter "Starwood transfer" & check off one of the "options". Or say you remember a DDF'er talking about a certain topic, you enter that topic in the search & the DDF'er "by user".

Or just post here (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=12138.0)

New member here. Does anyone know if there is a subscribe function? Like in Flyertalk, I can subscribe to a sub-forum, and will get an email update of the new posts daily/weekly. Sort of like your "View the most recent posts on the forum" function, but more focus on a particular sub forum, and with email notification.

Edited: the notify button only email me if there is a new THREAD is created, which for sub-forum like Credit Card for example, is not extremely useful. I am interested in what's going on on the existing thread.

You can hit the notify button within a thread which will email you if there's a new post in that thread.

Thanks for the very quick response! I am trying to subscribe to the sub-forum, so that every day i get an email detailing which threads within that sub forum have new activity (new posts). Thought such a function would be very useful. At the moment, if I hit notify in the subforum, I only get an email when a new thread is created. If I hit notify in every threads, then I will get tens of email notification associated to all of the threads, instead of just one summary email. Being new, I am interested in all threads within the sub forum to improve my knowledge. The same trick has been proved to be very useful for me over at FT for a while now.
(not trying to demand any thing btw, just thought I should ask if anyone know how to do that)

You'll get tens of notifications because you're getting the email as soon as there's a new post.

So I guess that i would have to make a wiki if I want to add the promo code.

 How do I change the title to reflect the better deal that the promo code somebody posted offers?

How do you do it? I definitely agree with you-whoever designed this site better not be involved in any graphic design whatsoever. It's not an eyesore but the closest thing to it.

Maybe because you're still in the old layout, it changes my upload to your layout... idk that kinda doesn't make sense though.. anyway go to Profile>Account Settings>hover over Modify Profile>Look and Layout. Then I picked the last one.

I like tapatalk when uploading images. It's much simpler. I like desktop version for signatures and it's also a lot easier to see who is 'talking'. I don't really look at too many names. I know who posts based on profile pic.
Another thing. I don't know if I set it up or if it's automatic but I get a notification on my phone whenever anyone quotes me. I find that really helpful because almost always when I ask a question, the one who answers will quote me. Very useful feature.
Also on tapatalk you can't see how many posts a user has unless you 'stalk' STS.

Is there a way to make everything I click on on DDF to open in a new window (besides for changing pages in a thread)?
Click with the mouse's wheel. Or control-leftclick.

Post by: tec on November 19, 2015, 10:22:07 PM
Why not just make a new tab ?
Sorry, I meant tab not window. I wanted to know if I can set it to automatically open a new tab when clicking on it rather than needing to right click to choose to open a new tab

Now if only there was a simple way on touchscreen, other than copy-new tab-paste.

Depends on the html of the link. If they add in
Code: [Select]
target="_blank" it will automatically open a new tab. I think external links in DDF are set up that way by default.

Don't think so. It should be in "show unread posts since last visit".

How can I 'unfollow' a certain thread on the "show new replies to your posts" option.

"Mark as read" just makes it not show up until someone else replies - not very useful.
"ignore" means that even if in the future i want to follow it I will have to undo it - annoying.

e.g. because i once posted something in the "fuel surcharge" master thread, it shows up every time i look at new posts. At the moment I have nothing to add to that thread but i don't want  to ignore it because in the future i may want to follow it...

You check off "ignore topics" & when you decide to change it you go here (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=profile;area=ignoretopics) in your profile & un-ignore that thread. Pretty simple.

I wish there was this option. For instance, there could be a hot deal that somebody posts in that thread, that if you kept seeing activity there, you would open to see what was going on. Doing what TimT says, you would miss it.

How would it be possible for the thread to not show up but then show up when someone posts a good deal or just because you decided (in your mind) you now want to follow it again ?

Heres the idea.
When you are actively following a deal, and you posted there, you can quickly see new activity in your 'new replies' link. Eventually, this becomes irrelevent, so you tire of following it (closely).

Other deals, you just happen upon, like the thread title catches your attention. Why should a topic that you once posted in get less of a chance for you to see, than a new topic, or a topic you never posted in.

For example, suppose I have an issue with Uber. So i post my question in the Uber thread. I see whats going on, get some replies, and issue gets resolved. Now what should i do? I am interested in perhaps helping others who may have issues with Uber, and I certainly want to be informed if there is some deal or quirk that is posted there. But I dont want it to show in 'new replies' tab. That is reserved for active issues that I have that I am very involved in. But if I ignore it, i will lose visibility of it.

I'm not sure if thats eliraps's issue, but I think that it is, and it is mine as well.
Title: Re: Navigating DDF

Title: Re: Navigating DDF
Post by: TimT on December 08, 2015, 12:08:54 PM
The current OP doesn't want it in his "replies" page. The other option would be to constantly open the different boards to see which threads are at the top. I'll do that every now and then as many threads won't even show up in "show unread posts".
Title: Re: Navigating DDF
Post by: username on December 08, 2015, 12:26:38 PM
When you join, or when you mark all threads as read(which I do from time to time), then all threads on all boards will come up in the unread threads, and you dont have to open each board individually.

Except for ignored threads...

Best plan for the OP is to just "mark selected read". I personally have pages of "new replies" that I ignore without "ignoring". When I get in the mood I'll read through specific ones. Or if it suddenly shoots to the top & stays there .(example: take a spin with SPG game :) )

Sure, one you have that thread open, hit the search button (on the upper LEFT of the screen, beneath today's date). In the 'By User' field, remove the *, and replace with the specific user.

BTW, for people that "don't have the time to read through the last 100 pages" of a thread, you can change the amount of posts per page in "look & layout" from 15 per page to 50. That would cut it down from 100 pages to 30. :)

I use 50 per page.
50 is makes things much easier if you are trying to read hundreds of posts or entire threads at one time (especially if you are a noob trying to read the whole forums 'al regel achas').
If you are up to date and are just following new posts then there is no reason to use 50, it is much harder to navigate.

"profile" "modify profile" "ignore boards options"

But it'll only be hidden in "unread posts"

Your sense of entitlement isn't going to help you very much here. I actually did give you a helpful response whether or not it was what you wanted to hear. If you don't have a way to do $20k in spend, you should keep that in mind next time you're signing up for CC's.

Those opportunities often disappear and in many areas it is difficult to find the needed gift cards. As such many will not just tell random people how to do it especially on the large scale that you are looking for.

Also, the criticism you received was not misplaced. It was potentially very constructive.

That said, he is right that all he did was ask for help finding a thread here. There is nothing wrong with that. I am not sure there is much that will help on this scale to be found.

I had that problem, in the end I clicked on each of the page #s of my messages, one at a time, and at some point the unread one because read.

So you never actually found out which one or why it was happening ?
Title: Re: Navigating DDF - unread
Post by: etech0 on January 13, 2018, 09:32:48 PM

By that point I had a bunch of "unread" messages, maybe 8 or 9? I was able to figure out which page of my PMs each one was on because when I clicked on that page # and scrolled to the bottom (not sure if that part was necessary), the number of unread messages went down by 1. Now if it ever happens I know to scroll through the last couple pages of messages, and it's not such a big deal because I don't have to go so far back.

I think the problem was messages that I had read but the system didn't realize that I read them. It could be because I read the message in my email, so when I saw the popup when I visited the site I ignored it, and by the time I ended up looking at my page of PMs, I was up to a new page, so the site never "watched" me read that message.

On Tapa, I often see an unread message, sometimes, there's actually one marked unread (even though I've read it) and other times there are none. Usually a refresh helps with the latter. Never had this issue on the actual site though.
