Upgrade Quirks

Recommended Posts

I noticed quoted posts in other threads are not showing up correctly. In general chat, some threads the quoted text is just indented, not enclosed in a shaded box. This thread here in support looks good, tho.

I noticed all posts were marked read for me around the time of the upgrade. It had been a week since I logged on, and only posts from the last day or so are unread.

One cool thing I like, when I read a thread and use my back button to get to the forum, that thread I just read has been marked read. They were always marked read, but didn't show up as read until I refreshed my browser.

Not a huge deal, but the automatic placing of a space after a paragraph is annoying.  Kind of how MS Word started doing it when they rolled out Office2010.

I can't control that.  It's part of the editor.

Software Upgrade Underway

 

On Thursday, May 12th we upgraded our forum software to the latest IPBoard.  What you are seeing right now is the new software. For the first 72 hours or so (until Sunday May 15th we're guessing) some features will not be immediately available, including:

  • Search Feature / New Content Search.
  • Old posts and private messages will appear oddly formatted.  Please do not attempt to edit them.
  • Advertising by our Vendors will not be displayed immediately.

Your patience as the upgrade process continues is greatly appreciated!  Please use the Feedback and Support forum to report any bugs, other than the things mentioned above, that you encounter.

 

^^^ That is at the top of literally every page right now.   :)

Personally I could use a little more contrast. Seems to be awfully bright or maybe sorta washed out as the color scheme is somewhat one dimensional.

Here's a GOOD thing:

Pasting (with or without formatting) no longer changes (b) into that emoticon face  or (c) into the copyright symbol due to the whatchamacalit code default from previous version.  Always a hassle when doing laws from TCA or whatever.

 

One BAD thing though:

Unless I'm missing it, no way to preview the post before sending?

What is Create: Status?

Brings up the standard posting interface with "submit status" button. Submit what status? To whom?

Another +1 for the mobile version. Big improvement. 

Over both the old mobile skin and most especially tapatalk.

@TGO David I certainly don't want to cost you any more grief than necessary and if Tapatalk won't work, that's fine, but I still prefer it over any mobile skin.  Just my 2 cents.  

I agree with @Raoul if there is a way to tone down the super white, that'd be good.

I agree.  I guess it isn't the end of the world, but i would also prefer tapatalk.

I also agree. Being able to post pics straight from your phone was a huge benefit of tapatalk.

You can upload straight from a phone, see....

Can also pinch/zoom photos which you couldn't do with prior mobile version.  

 

Can also do emoji without having to know the code. Sweet!  :no1:

One thing I DO NOT like is being forced to receive email notifications every time I get a message or for any other reason.  I tried to change it but it says toggle disabled by admin.

I'll take the complaint as a request to look into why it's happening.

Geez dude, you're kinda bitter lately.

You all should have the ability to change that preference now.

It's moved with IPB4.  Look in the "Store" link at the top of the page, "Manage Purchases".

I went there and I cant seem to renew my membership . I don't think the system has my Paypal address stored anymore. Sorry about these questions. I'm sure are being overwhelmed.

If you click on the thread title it opens at the top of the first page. If you click on the dot to the left of the title it will take you to the first unread post. 

The little blue button that takes you to the first unread post sure is in close proximity to the Avater and thread tiltle.  I've hit the avatar or gone to the top of the thread several times.
