The Homepage (aka Latest)
The default homepage at tfk.thefreekick.com should be self-explanatory for everyone. The only newish feature or difference is the Users column which shows the topic starter (left avatar), last poster (right avatar) and frequent posters on that thread (middle 1 or 2).
Oh, and you shouldn’t need to refresh to see new content. You will get a little blue bar at the top telling you there are new posts that you can click to reveal new content. I think twitter have since copied this.
Clicking any topic on this view (or any view) will bring you to your last position on the thread. So you will be brought to the unread content - similar to our old setup.
If you have already read a sticky topic and no longer want it at the top of the board then click the little pin icon beside the thread title and it will just get treated like a normal topic when you’re viewing TFK.
Other Topic Views
At the top there are links to Latest (the default view as described above), New (new topics created), Unread (topics which have unread content) and Categories (a view to just look at different categories of topics - see next section for more).
After, each heading the number in brackets indicates the number of topics that are now in this section with unread content. In the screenshot below, there are 2 new topics that I haven’t seen yet:
Also, on the left hand side you can filter content by categories. So instead of seeing all Latest posts, or all New topics, you can filter to see only those relating to Sport for example.
Those categories, or any of the menu items, can also be accessed by clicking on the hamburger menu item on the top right of the screen, next to your avatar or login prompt:
