Hi TwinHeadedEagle,

Do you mean the "Follow this" feature near the top right above the teal "Reply to this topic"?

I'll follow this post so you can see what it looks like when someone follows.

I think what he means, is this...

While I in this topic right now, we used to be able to see (bottom left corner) what other members were also viewing the topic in real time.  This is helpful because it tells us if someone else is already working on a reply.  If someone was replying (in other forums don't remember if it was here) if the other members name was in italic, it meant they were currently replying to the topic so we could move on to the next one.

On the main page of the forums, we've enabled "Who's Online" so that's everyone actively on the forum.

Within individual forums and threads, you'll also see "Recently Browsing". That's a new term and from some quick testing on our end just now, it displays any users who are either active on that page or have visited within the last few minutes.

Are we able to see people replying to threads under that "Recently Browsing" tab?

Do you mean the Recently Browsing section at the bottom of the page? Was there a feature in v3 that showed who was viewing a thread as well as who was actively responding?

Yes there was. When someone was replying to a thread, under "Recently Browsing", their name would show in italic, indicating that they were actively tryping a reply to that thread, like Firefox mentionned above.

Got it. IPS confirmed this feature has changed a bit in v4. In v3 it would show users within the thread and then if they were using the full editor it would italicize them to indicate a response was actively happening. Because IPS removed the full editor capabilities, this feature was also removed.

So Recently Browsing in v4 only indicates someone is actively (or was very recently) viewing the subforum or thread.

If you feel we've solved this / answered it, let us know and we'll lock it.
