How to track new blog articles and comments?

Jump to solution

When I'm in the category that contains blogs I see a count of the new blog articles and comments.  But when I go to the blog, I don't see any way to determine if the article or comments are unread.

 

About all I see is a date on the main article but nothing to show if there are new comments.

So I'm left with exhaustively looking at every article.  I just looked at the FAQ and I don't see anything that mentions "unread".

 

Here is an example blog:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Following-the-White-Rabbit-A/bg-p/sws-119

 

Its category has: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Application-Security-Community/ct-p/sws-AS

Following the White Rabbit - A Realistic Blog on Enterprise Security (9)  (A count of 9 unread articles/comments)

 

For a board it's easy.  Each new topic is in bold and has a NEW count.  And when you go to a topic, it jumps to the first unread post.

Ok, I think I've figured this out after wasting lots of time manually searching for entries with "comments".

(I just did a within page search and I found something unexpected.)

 

Off to the right is pane with "Latest Articles" (10) and below that "Latest Comments" (only 3).

I don't see anything explaining this in the blog FAQ:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/help/faqpage/faq-category-id/blogs#blogs

 

Unfortunately this isn't ideal.  If there was a comment to a real old blog, it won't show up because it isn't sorted to the top like a normal board.  :-(

I found a partial solution to that.

For a given board, go to the containing category.  Then click on the "See All" link.  You get something like:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/sws-Events/post-type/thread

 

If you can find the new blog/topic, fine.  Otherwise switch to comment/post order:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/sws-Events/post-type/message

 

(Rats!  The latter isn't sorted so it doesn't help much, especially if active boards in the same category.)

>especially if active boards in the same category

 

Now that blogs have been segregated to their own categories, this is much easier to search.

There are a few blogs that are mixed with boards.  But now the See All lists are separated:
