All-topics time warp?

   My usual all-topics pages seem to be living in the (mostly distant)
past, today.  For example:

Re: All-topics time warp?

Noticed the same thing (reported here) now - just few hours later - it seems automagically solved...

One thing I really miss is: to be able to sort all topics posted by the latest reply received...sometime one post a reply to a post then he/she forgets its reply...time goes by...and it became harder to understand if that topic received other newer replies.

I assume a Community user doesn't enable the Mail notification on new replies on his/her contributions.

Isn't it?

   Yeah.  I've complained about this repeatedly over the past four
years, with no result.  I assume that there's no hope.

   That and the HTML "<title> All Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Community</title>", which is identical for every forum.  Totally
useless.

   As an element, lithium is a lightweight.  As forum software, ...

   On the bright side, today, copy+paste seems not to "fix" all the
spacing in the pasted material.  It's something.

Re: All-topics time warp?

Yep.

Another very annoying thing I noticed - especially true if a Community user is used to stay within and move between Sub-Categories (like the ones available under the Networking macro category) back and forth - is that when you enter a Sub-Category (let me say, as example, the "Comware-Based" one) moving horizontally to others Sub-Categories looks cumbersome...I need to go up to the parent Category to then go down to the other Sub-Category...on Mobile is a real nightmare, on Desktop I learned to keep opened various web browser pages (tabs).

It's a matter of letting user to move up/down and left/right on category levels easily enough.

Yes, I use tabs too.

Re: All-topics time warp?

In the FAQ section (found on the "Quick Links" menu), there is a post that explains Subscriptions and Notifications, and how to configure your settings. If you don't find answers to your questions there, please go ahead and ask here. We are always updating the FAQ postings as members bring new questions.

   What I have are complaints, not questions.

   Does the FAQ explain how to get HTML "title" directives which are
more distinctive than "All Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Community" for different all-topics pages?  My current "solution" is to
arrange the identical tabs in my browser in a particular order, and then
(try to) ignore the fact that I have four tabs which are all labeled
"All Topics...".

   Does the FAQ explain how to get an all-topics listing which is sorted
by date-time of last posting instead of first?

   If so, I've missed some things.
