When quoting a post with pictures from postimages, switch the qoute to a thumbnail, by doing as follows:

Copy the first part of the URL (in qoutes):
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/ "PpbP4WCT" ][img]https://i.postimg.cc/LXwLmvRY/20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

And replace the end (in qoutes) with it:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/PpbP4WCT][img]https://i.postimg.cc/ "PpbP4WCT" /20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

Original URL
Code: [Select]
[url=https://postimg.cc/PpbP4WCT][img]https://i.postimg.cc/LXwLmvRY/20200928-215426.jpg[/img][/url]

How to search for all posts made by a member in a particular thread?

Another option is to click the print button. It will load the whole thread as text. Then do ctrl f

Having trouble getting past the first page of your mentions page?

Simple temporary fix:
Add
Code: [Select]
;start=20To the end of the URL (when your on your mentions page), and that should bring you to page 2 (it should be in increments of 20, so 40 would be page 3).

I just noticed that this is now ignoring posts from boards I ignore. Is that recent?
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

I believe it was always like that. Which reminds me of:
I just discovered that their exists and how to use the ignore topic option!
Go here and make sure to check under "Show quick-moderation as" checkboxes.
Now under show unread posts since last visit or under show new replies to your posts you can check the topics you'd like to ignore. Then hit ignore!

Looking at the deal board and tired of all the conversations?
Add:
Code: [Select]
;sort=first_post;descTo the end of the URL when your on any board, to sort by most recently started topic.

Add it to your unread post's URL, to quickly see all new unread threads.

Like so: (easy bookmarkable)
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=unread;sort=first_post;desc


Beware: you will miss deals that are replies to old threads

Is there a way to display all threads across DDF (from all boards) in order of which was most recently posted in?

Similar to the way any board looks, just with all threads from all boards?

I don't believe it's possible without a mod such is this:

Hit this box to directly PM a fellow member, *keep in mind to ignore one's signature when doing so.



*The box will be yellow when the member is online and white when offline
**The above rule excludes the one hidden user. Not to worry he is always online:)

The right-most icon further down (between gender and program) does the exact same thing.

Under you profile hit "Look and Layout" and make sure "Use sidebar menus instead of dropdown menus when possible." is checked.




Gives you a nicer layout and is way more mobile friendly.
