Announcement: Forum Upgrade 4/7/17

Recommended Posts

Re the dark background. If you go to the bottom (left on mine) of the forum page in a browser, and click "Theme", you'll see there's a "default" option, which is light.

Also, "New Posts" seems to be working OK for me now

First of all, well done on the forum upgrade.

My comments:

I'm not a fan of the dark background.

My main interface to the old forums (and most forums tbh) is the "recent posts" search. On the new forums this is broken, and when clicking on the new topics are displayed, the click goes to the very first topic in the thread. I'd expect to go the first unread post in the thread (or as a cheat, the last post in the thread).

There are two ways of viewing new posts. You can either go to 'Unread Content' - http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/discover/unread/ or through the activity stream, which will also show things such as who liked what post etc - http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/discover/

Yes, I think a few people have missed my post earlier in the thread!

@Deb Can you update the original post with the above?

Out of the two theme options the darker does not hurt my eyes as the white one. If only the font could be slightly larger.

I find the darker option 'easier on the eyes'.

just a note to let you know under the ipsfocus skin, the social media icons top right link to ipsfocus www address, presumably these can be customised to link to ozrs SM feeds?

Yep, we're aware of this. Only the Facebook one will remain and we have noted it needs to be changed to point to the OzRS page.

Sadly, neither of these are of any use if I'd like to read the latest unread posts in the threads I'm interested in (using the "find first unread post" button on the old site).
Using /discover/unread/ makes me trawl through ALL the unread posts across the site, AAARRRGHHH.

Also, the difference between "read" and "unread" posts is a very subtle one for these tired eyes. Is there any way to change the colour or make the difference more obvious?

You can change most of the settings - see the screenshot I've attached. There's several other settings to limit the type of content, etc. Play with the settings.

 As per ace's screenshot above - you can play around with the settings and filters. You can also create your own 'streams' where you can set different filters.

RE: the colours - this is something that we're discussing in the background

Sorry if it has already been mentioned but if you are quoted and click the TapaTalk notification it now takes you to the first post in the thread.

Not sure if it is related however during the last forum update there was an ability to change user IDs (feature was removed after I believe). Not sure if that caused something to go out of sync in the backend.

 

EDIT: It seems all my profile details have been reset, along with my display pic. Only thing retained as joined date.

If you had a different username previously, is it possible you've logged in under a different account?

So what I thought before was true, it appears that my previous alias has split off from my current alias.

 

This was my original username, it shows posts from recently however I haven't had the alias tagged on posts for a long time.

http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/profile/14919-mrasia/

 

I believe Dish was aware of the feature of allowing usernames to be changed as he assisted in changing my ID. 

 

Here is an example of someone quoting my post showing my ID however the post I made reverted back to my old ID.

I'll see if we can get the usernames combined somehow. Confirming the usernames are harbo and MrDerrickC?

I will try to see if I can reset the password on my other account... from memory it was the same email address used since I never really had to create the new account. 

My old alias was MrAsia, new one is MrDerrickC.

 

Thanks Deb!

Yeah, bit weird. I selected your post and clicked reply and it didn't do anything. I thought previously that would quote that selected post?

Yep just tried again on clio197.net but not on here. This post was created trying to multiquote the two above but with no success. I'm assuming it's a combined problem due to the forum upgrade, the new version of Tapatalk and probably something related to the previous Tapatalk issues when it wouldn't work when the forum upgraded.

My tapatalk replies are working as quotes. I paid for it recently when they started including all those intrusive ads. iOS version 6.5.8.

I'd forgotten that I had bought pro ages ago.

It's actually a few versions behind the non-paid option which is probably used to test new features/iron out bugs before updating the 'stable' version.

Nothing to fix unfortunately - our current hosting/plan does not have SSL certificates. We will look into this once all the changes and issues with the forum have been sorted out.

One thing that really irks me with the new set up is that threads with an unread post usually show up bold (same as the old setup) but with the current layout it's extremely difficult to tell if a thread title is bold or not.

I've sent tapatalk an email on the quoting thing. Will keep y'all updated of the outcome.

I seem to have lost the ability to edit my posts since the upgrade :?

I found by accident that if you select 'quote' bottom right you can edit yours as well as doing this to reply to other posts.

The edit function does not last long after your original post.

OK, this appears to be the explanation. I can see the Edit button for the above post at the moment but not for something from last night.

I'd like to see the location under your username like it used to be, makes it hard to reply in wanted/selling threads when you don't know where their from.

Logged in to report the same. Error says 'Sever error occurred' plus some other details. Would upload the screen shot if I knew how.

Something has changed and it now requests me to log in in a different pop up window but unfortunately it still doesn't work (refers to a network failure and says I'm still not logged in). Thanks for the efforts Deb.

Still no joy, slowly adapting to life without this forum... it's probably somewhat healthy I guess. ?
