It's sloooow. Very, very slow.

I'm looking into this; something is loading the server. I'll see what I can do.

The menu button that leads to things like "new content" and "messenger" has ceased to function on the mobile version of the site. Worked a minute ago though.

You've come a long way. Remember back when we defined what a velocity meant? Now we are talking about an antisymmetric tensor of second rank in four dimensions.

Yup, that's working.

 

Ok, so I assume when you click into your warning log you see a list of what dates you received warning, how many points you got and who gave them to you? If you click on the more details button, you shouldn't see anything as all of the notes we have there currently are staff notes. There is an option when we create warnings to leave a note for the member as well, which probably won't be used terribly much as we tend to address the reason behind the warning as mod notes or via PM.

I'm experiencing similar problems, only on certain pages though.

I have no warnings to display :'(

We charged your account a penny for every warning point you've had in the last 8 years. That's how we were able to afford the software upgrade.

I just noticed we no longer have header information displayed when we quote someone. It would be nice if we still see the name of the person we are quoting, etc.

It's displayed in the actual post, but not by default in the editor. If you want the BBCode in the editor, there's a button at the top left of the editor that looks like a lightswitch. Click it, and the code appears.

Hmm. Seems to be just the opposite for me. While I am in the editor I can see "quote name="ydoaPs" post="716849" timestamp="1354639382"", but after I hit 'Add Reply' I don't see see any of that information in my published post.

I also don't see any buttons at all in my editor.

When I am replying to someone, in the old system if you scrolled down to previous posts, what you saw were the most recent posts first. Now when I reply I see the posts in reverse order. That is, if I scroll down while replying the first post I see is the original post in the thread.

The order previously seen was, IMO, better as I often look at recent posts as I am writing my response.

It may not be obvious (took me a bit to figure it out) but if you want to respond in the middle of a quoted section, just put the cursor in where you want the response and then hit return a couple of times.  Your cursor will leave the quote box and you will be able to type your reply.

You can also get around this by hitting the little switch button on the top left of the edit panel to show the BBCode and then add quote tags, etc., as you would with the old software.

Thanks, but what I meant was that if I look at the posts under Topic Summary while I am working on this, the first post I see is the page one post from dave saying "You will probably have noticed that following a couple of hours upgrading, we have successfully upgraded to the latest version of our forum software".

Before the upgrade, if I had looked at the posts under Topic Summary the first one I would have seen would have been yours, saying "It may not be obvious (took me a bit to figure it out) but if you want to respond...".

I agree with zapatos.  Having the most recent post displayed first makes responding easier.

That's interesting. Not a particularly helpful change. I'll see if it can be changed, or if it was intentional.

I noticed that when I tried to quote someone, it didn't include the quotes from their posts (that is, it didn't include the people that they had quoted). This is extremely annoying. Any chance of changing that?

I understand.  My post wasn't meant to be a solution to that problem, it was just a general "I figured out this new feature and maybe someone else hasn't" post.

 

However, while responding, I notice that the posts above this are in reverse chronological order.
