I’ve posted this as a comment to my Personalize Your Pulse View blog entry but I think it’s quite important information and comments can get lost quickly sometimes.
The thing is that I’ve updated the short Pulse in the footer to reflect your filter settings on the Pulse page.
And now I have my favorite way to browse the site!
When you want to quickly go through all the new recent posts in a controlled way follow this plan. Set the active setting to “In last 24 hours” and check the “only new” checkbox. Now go to first item in the list and read it. Once you finish reading just scroll down to the bottom of the page (you should be very close). Now you will see the pulse magic in action – the item you’ve just read will not be displayed in the footer’s Pulse (remember you set your filter to show “only new”). Instead the item that was originally 2nd will be displayed as the 1st one so you just need to click on it to continue reading new stuff for you. Continue this way till your Pulse stack is empty and your reading is done for that given time. How Cooool ;)
Together with this update I’ve also made one more neat addition – consider it as my little bonus to all addicts ;)
It’s nice to have Jocks displayed in the pulse but I’ve realized yesterday that it’s hard to keep track of new content when we have 50 new jocks per day – which is GREAT by the way. So I’ve added one more option to the first drop-down → ‘All except jocks’. Just select it and all jock items will be filtered out from your pulse view. Only fresh new content will be listed. And whenever you’re in mood to welcome new members just switch back to ‘All’ or just ‘Jocks’.
