New Feature "Jump To Topic"

Ok, we're rattling off more new stuff here.

I've had several people say they would like a way to be able to browse the topics in a more condensed format so they can jump to a topic they're looking for quickly. So I've added the menu item at the top of each main category page that says "Jump To Topic" with a list of subjects. It's the same list of topics in the same order as you're seeing on the page but you won't have to scroll the page to find it.

This feature works especially well for anyone on an Android Phone or iPhone because the scrolling list they give you works great.

Lastly, when you choose a topic, the system will automatically check to see if there are new replies in that topic since the last time you viewed it. If so, it will take you to the newest replies. If not, it will just take you to the first page of that topic.

Now that last part I wasn't sure how to handle. If you want to jump to a topic but there aren't any new replies since the last time you viewed it, I didn't know if I should send you to the first page (so you could browse the whole topic from the beginning) or the last page (because you might want to add a comment yourself). So I just made it the first page of the topic but that's super simple to change.

So let me know if you like the feature the way it's setup and let me know if you have any suggestions for improving it. Thanks!!!


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I like it! It makes it more important to make a clearly understandable heading to our thread so that others can access the information they're looking for.

Works but only shows the topics from page 1 would it not be logical to put it where it shows all topics? Just a thought I mean it doesn't bother me the way it is now just thought I'd throw that suggestion out there.

Well right now it shows the 30 topics with the most recent activity but I can have it show as many as we like. The first page lists 20 topics I think so it's showing the first 1 1/2 pages worth. I'll probably be adding features to show "Only topics I started" and "Only topics I commented on" so people can search that way also.

Then there's the search engine up top that only searches the forum so if you know a topic by title you can search for it that way too.

Another feature I'm working on is the ability to add tags to each topic like "choosing a truck driving school" or "Swift company training" so we'll be able to list topics by tag soon too.
