I thought it was ugly at first.

Now I think it's more sleek and elegant.

I approve.

 

But the "new content" page....it's disgusting. Aside from that, yeah, just new. But, come on, who picked that colour scheme?

...what's the new content page?

I like the color scheme. And spell it properly. You live in America, by God.

I'm using 'view new content', I go to the bottom of the page and mark all as read. This takes me back to the Forum page. So far, so good. When I now click on view new content, shouldn't it say no new content found? What it does is list the same new content page as before, with the new post indicators blank.

I approve.

There's also a function that let's you see what other people are doing. How do you find new site content without these features? Do you actually go to each subforum page?

 

Speaking of "Online Users", is there a way to default it to "Show Registered Only"?

No, we are the universe realizing itself as a human for a little while.

Dave, Capn, and all the admins - I really like the new setup so far. Many thanks for the hard work it must have been implementing, and for the future debugging to come.

 

By the way - does it benefit the forum to click the facebook "like", googleplus "+1" etc? I will quiet happily click regularly if it is gonna raise profile a/o ad revenue etc

If it gets us more readers and regular visitors, it's a help to us. We get hundreds of thousands of visitors, so a few more from Facebook won't make a dent in our ad revenue -- but if one of your friends decides they like SFN and joins, we benefit. The more smart and interested members we get, the better!

My profile photo and my avatar are the same?

In the old version they were different.

From what I gather, the new system removed the profile photo option and just replaced it with the avatar.

That is not what I call an improvement.

 


 


---------------------

 

 

I am working from different PC's at work, at home,...

 

From this one, when editing a reply, the system opens the edit in full mode for half a second then changes in simple mode without any facilities. The buttons for quoting, inserting image link, etc. are grey. I'll have to try from another PC to see if that happens everywhere. Some other time.- Oops, it works correctly now. I don't know what happens.

On the very top left of the text editor is a button that looks like a toggle switch for a light. See if the buttons grey or ungrey when you press that.

Alternatively, Cap'n tells me you can double-click inside a quote and it will allow you to respond to multiple parts of the post and make the edit buttons active. I haven't tried it but I will soon.

I don't understand that.

 

 

Other issue.

Went to "Reply to this topic", then bottom right to "More Reply Options' then clicking the Image button: the Forum gets all grey and impossible to do anything.

When that happens it should present you with an input box to type in the image's URL. You aren't seeing the box are you? What browser are you using?

I'm thinking it's a popup blocker. Try pressing and continuing to hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard as you click More Reply Options. If that fixes it, then your issue is the result of a popup window being blocked by IE.

INow

 

I don't think It's a popup issue. Although I have IE9, I set it to block all popups and the Add Image box still came up here.

Try deleting your cache: Tools > Internet Options > General > Browsing History: Delete > OK

 

If this fails try another browser to see if the issue is repeated.

Don't need to do anything that drastic; it's probably just cached code from the old software interacting badly with new stuff from the new software. Force-refresh or clear cache and see what happens.

 

The site doesn't use any popups, so you shouldn't need to disable a popup blocker.
