Hi, I am looking for a Discourse feature, not sure if it already exists, or is part of some plugin.
Some of us have to look through everything that happens in a Forums site. It is very handy to just get there each time and open all of our unread list, each page in a new tab. That way it’s really easy to go through all of it one at a time, and closing one tab immediately discloses the next tab into view.
I know this works great as a user experience because I have that on Github notifications (I’m not sure if it’s default Github behaviour or a
Refined Github Firefox add-on that I have),
- I go to the notifications page
- I click “Open all unread” button
- starting from a certain threshold value (I think it’s 10) I get a confirmation pop-up. If it appears the text is something like “This will open 23 new browser tabs, are you sure? (Ok/Cancel)”. If it’s just a handful of tabs, they open right away.
- I suppose there’s some other maximum limitation to avoid trying to open 1000 tabs, though I’ve never seen it.
I understand this is a bit “heavy-handed” way of doing things, so I realize it’s not a button we’d want to show by default, very prominently, to everyone. But as an optional feature, or one that is accessible just from a couple of screens, it would be great.
