    If you have got questions about this, just ask.

    In a perfect world,
    users would never enter data in the wrong form,
    files they choose to open would always exist
    and code would never have bugs.

  • I dislike the new forum anyways. It's sometimes burning out my eyes, until I found a thread with a specific title.

    The following is my signature:

    Beside that, whenever you see a reply, you think is helpful, click "Vote As Helpful"! And whenever you see a reply being an answer to the main question of the thread, click "Mark As Answer" (if you opened the thread).

    I published the URL's for the icons in my signature.

    Please contact me, before reporting me, thank you.

    I may be missing something, but isn't the old "my forums thread" the same as clicking "my threads" under quick access?

  • Hi

    My Threads lists those posts you have replied/contributed to. The My Forums Threads lists all the posts in your selected Forums (MY Forums) in one list.

    So, no, they are not the same.

  • I thought you may be on to something, but when I select that, I get a list of forums.

    This is very much required. It feels very difficult to filter the forums each time.

  • Hi

    I had some advice from this thread

    Heslacher

    in a previous post related to creating a bookmark link composed of your preferred forums. 

    Until such time as MS decide to resurrect the My Forums Threads, I will use this method.

    Currently, my bookmark address is :

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=suggest%2Cvbgeneral%2CVsexpressvb%2Cvbide%2Cvblanguage&filter=alltypes%2Calllanguages&sort=lastpostdesc

    I just replaced Heslacher link text with my preferred forum names (as per address bar when visiting)


    Regards Les, Livingston, Scotland

  • Isn't it most likely a shame to put tutorials, to be able to use the forums features?

  • My Forums Threads option is now available in the Quick access drop-down.

    FYI: It's not bookmarkable.  :(

    It works by applying selecting all the individual forums as a query.  This filter is encoded directly into the url query for the page as comma separated values:  ?forum=vcgeneral%2Ccsharpgeneral  ... etc.  (commas are URL encoded as %2C, and each forum seems to have a string id) and is pre-generated (there is no single url that will take you to "my forums threads", so there is nothing to bookmark)

    So if you have your My Forums Threads link open in one tab, and add/remove a forum in another tab or from another machine, then refresh the original page that "My Forums Threads" took you to, you'll find that it won't pick up the changes.  You'll have to navigate to any page that has the "My Forums Threads" link again, at which point the backend will automatically generate a new url with all of your "My Forums" forums in the query, and you can follow that "My Forums Threads" link to update your query.

    More importantly, you can't bookmark "My Forums Threads" because it won't pick up any changes to the forums you have made.

    Seems a little silly to me, but it's a functional workaround for constructing the filter.  I don't know why the backend can't abstract "my forums" as a redirect url or have a metaforum with a link like ?forum=myforums.
