    New VBForums Discovery For Me

    I've been a VBForums member since Feb 07. I had a brief identity back in 2005 that disappeared after I stopped posting. I just clicked on 449 in the Replies column for the thread Why are you not a believer in the existence of God? I'd never used that before. I was surprised to see that among the 59 different posters in that thread that I'm at the # 3 spot with 30 posts. Interesting VBForums feature that I wasn't aware of before even though it's always been there all along.

    "I can't believe" count for this thread at 4 (posts 2 to 15).

    I knew about it but I didn't want to tell you - it was my secret.

    Ah yes. MaxilimilianMayrhofer, the excellent coder. He also made a program that something would happen when I press this red button.

    ...I don't know what it does... and I don't care...

    ... Nope... not a care in the world...

    ... OK I want to know what's so special about this red button!! I'm going to press it and if it doesn't do anything I... *PSSSHT* [CONNECTION LOST]

    Took me a bit to figure out as well.

    Click on the number of replies in the "Replies" column for a thread in the results of a search and you'll see what EntityX is talking about.

    Even better, if you click on the individual totals you get a page listing each post just like when you click a user's ID and you search for a his/her posts.

    Re: New VBForums Discovery For Me

    I just tried clicking on the individual totals but every time I did I got :
    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

    Edit entry: The problem is no more. I now get a list of posts for the selected member.

    I was wondering if this feature always existed. Maybe at one time the replies column just had numbers without clickable links. Was there some date not too long ago or perhaps years ago when they changed things or was it always like that?

    This feature has been around for several years... but apart from the same kind of "what's this?" as you've all had with it, I've never used it.
