Updated the forum software
#31
I know there are a number of issues after upgrading.
Some good new things, but also some broken things. I believe it comes from upgrading and then the upgrade process partially conflicting with already made modifications to the templates. There is also a huge number of javascript errors/warnings Sad

I will attempt to fix issues one by one, as I have the time.

I'm sure there were valid reasons for upgrading and that it improved the site beyond those nice rounded edges, hehe. The now-faulty modifications are what catches people's attention first of course...but as long as it's fixed up in due time, it's all good.

The most important reason for upgrading: Security -- without keeping the security up to date, the site would eventually get hacked and destroyed Sad

What is the down arrow button next to the page numbers supposed to do? I keep clicking, but it does nothing. Big Grin

ETA: Of course, there isn't one on this thread, but there is on others.

For as far as i'm aware the button can be used to type any page number, and it will let you jump to that page number. This thread does not have one because there are no invisible page numbers, i think.

Oh i make so much sense. Cool

Volt, now whenever i read a post of yours, I read 'my work is never done' as if it was a part of the message.

I tried to use the 'search' option but it is not working as well.
But that's ok, I shall wait for resuming my stal.. *cough* searching activities.

Yeah, the signature thing is really annoying. Stalking is alot harder now too, since the last visit is now hidden as well on users who enabled "Hide me from who's online list." That's probably a good thing, yes, but let me complain!

Also the arrows that are next to the subforum, indicating if the sub has unread threads is gone, that bugs me too. And the buttons for edit/pm/give rep are gone, it's just text with a link. And .. Well, alot, really.

The generic look of things is something i do like though, but that's pretty much it.

When will the forum be?

HTTPS

At least when logging in, and inputting your password.

I can add another problem to the list. I have a few people on my ignore list and next to their posts there is a button that says 'Show this post', but it no longer works since the upgrade to the forum software.

So, the ignore feature is actually working better (even if it is a flaw in the new design) and it's a problem? LOL

But yeah, that's exactly why I don't use the feature, everyone looks....
