Not a complaint or pointing out a fault, but I love the new look for the forums. It's all boxy and button-y. Yay for Mata!


Oh, yes, and. Um. Discuss.

Kitty, your web caches probably are still showing you the "five hours ago" version of the site.

In other news, strikethrough.

I'm pretty sure we could strikethrough before, but yeah, I am especially liking the new quick-edit thing.

I'm probably the only one on the forum that's noticed it, but I'm having a bit of a problem changing the color of my text. I've had to type out the code every time since the forums changed and I haven't been able to figure the frigging thing out. Of course, I'm also rather compy dense, so there's probably a good explanation. tongue.gif

I hardly ever use the formatting things, and when I do I usually type out the tags anyway, so I didn't notice until just now, that the format things aren't buttons anymore. It's as bad as office XP. Not becuase I use them but purely for aestetic and non-annoyance values, please bring back buttons that indent when you press them.

I've noticed you can no longer use Alt + I to get italics anymore (the same goes for bold.) Also, it's annoying how "My Assistant" pops up when you get a PM. Overall, forum doesn't display that well in my browser anymore. Prefered the old version, to be honest.

Quick Edit is pretty neat though.

Eugh, who uses the word "neat." nowadays? I need to get out more.

Take a look at Board Settings under My controls. You can disable PM notifications so that it just shows the new messages up in the top right corner, and you have a choice of editor.

P.S. Elphaba, it was me what done the software update. The spiffy new images weren't me though.

Changing colour is still done with an option. You highlight the bit you want to change and then click the underlined capital 'A'. A box of option colours pops up at the top of the screen (in Firefox, I've not done it in IE) and you pick the colour you'd like. Easy!

The Alt+key shortcuts do appear to have gone, which is a shame, but the 'highlight and click an option' functionality is back, which can be very handy for quotes and suchlike.

EDIT: Everything is going to be reported as featuring new posts for the next week until the new software settles down. Until then, pretty much everything is going to have a leaping Mittens icon on it. There are about ten different icons, so it's a bit of a shame that most of them never get used!

Nothing happens when I click the A...I've started liking purple lately, and I find myself writing color=purple a lot...

Colours are also now defined by their hex value only, for some reason, e.g. bright red is #FF0000.

The colour picker box appears right at the top of the screen. I suspect that it's a bit of a flaw in the programming; it's easy for it to be above where you're scrolled to, so it looks like it hasn't popped up.

You've not exposed my shame at breaking your customisations. I'm quite pleased that my spooning of the forum hasn't been exposed. Oh, now look what I've done... I've let my naughty cat out of the bag. tongue.gif

Hey Fuzzy and Mata,

When I view my profile, by clicking on my name in at the top left (Logged in as:) the Profile options look a bit odd. Cand pointed out they are now pull down, but the pull down I get looks like this. I'm using FireFox version 1.0.6 on my beloved Mac running OS X.

Yours,
Froggie

I get that on a few things. I suspect it's a Firefox issue that I assume will be resolved over time. It's not perfect, but I have no idea how to change it, and I'd rather live with it than use IE!

Apparently the calendar has vanished? Has this to do with the site update? (Was looking for towel day and/or talk like a pirate day)

I also like the new look and give kudos to appropriate people.

It works for me and I use Firefox. Try disabling some of your extensions. Maybe one of them is interfering with the way that the board works for you.
