Hi,

Is there a way to move to next thread by clicking Right (->) or Left (<-) buttons while reading the current thread. I am reading old threads in a certification forum and every time I come back to the main posts page and click on the next thread.

One problem of this would be when posts getting updated time to time and move up the order. So how one decide on prev & next posts here? Say when you traverse back from a post currently at the bottom of the list and if one of those posts get updated while you traverse you might see it again. And you lost the initial order completely.

The recommended way of dealing with this is to open multiple threads in the tabs of your browser so they are ordered according to the way you first saw them.

This is exactly how I do it.

Then they get answered while you are reading the other threads and you don’t know you are posting a duplicate response which somebody else has already posted.

When I hit post reply, I check the frame at the bottom to see if someone else has posted when I am in the more heavily trafficked forums. It happens more to me that someone faster answers while I am typing my answer.

This idea worked well while reading the old posts... thanks much!

Frame at the bottom? You mean the "Review message" gets refreshed/updated while I am typing in my reply?

Not while you type. When the page load. Which means if someone replied before you started the reply, you will see it.

I know one forum that will display any additional posts at the bottom while the thread is active. It first shows up as a bar with the new message count on it; if you click on that it will expand to show these new messages. I haven't really checked how they did it, but I'm guessing it's a timer with AJAX to retrieve the data.

I too think it may be possible to add up that functionality through AJAX. And that "Review Message" can sit at the TOP of the "Reply to" textbox-area.
