Hi!

On the new site, when I return after an hour or so, I get "Session verification failed", and have to log out and log back in.

This happens whether I ask for 180 minutes, or to stay logged in.

Anyone else having this problem?

After further experimenting, I need to log in for each new tab in a browser, or every time I restart the browser (I'm using Chrome).  The old software would remember across these changes....

Have been having an issue where it's mysteriously marking all topics as "read".. Nothing showing up in the "Unread Topics" list.

You know what I think is the most amazing side-effect of this new site - it's made Jim more verbose.

Noticed a few bugs in the gold L2 ticker box.

• "/" character gets replaced by "V"
• single quote mark gets additional "\" character prefix
• double quote mark gets additional "\" character prefix
• over-run of text outside gold box on long wrapped lines
• on wrapped text, top of 2nd line just visible

Same on news site front page

(sample screen grabs below)

I also find the new button slightly too small. Otherwise a great success.

Seconded (on both counts).

cheers, Martin

GO off line for a few days and your World changes on you!!! ;D
So far, this forum change is the least obtrusive. I can't give you guys enough praise.
I am at a Golden Arches wi-fi, on Blackberry Playbook, and not having had any problems.
Auto Login worked without any need to re-login. Only one thing which may be a function of the new software upgrade, I had stopped getting update notices on my cell e-mail address for threads that I had requested notifications. But that is nothing.
  I hope to be online at home for the weekend, if not I'll be eating a lot of fries to pay for wi-fi...  8)


Keep up the great work,
Cheers

Perhaps it will be easier to navigate and to see the topic title if the the "Topic:" is removed and the "(Read 505 times)" is without bold aligned to the right of this line. Will make reading of topic title much easier and less overloaded.

I'm finding the blue text on URLs is a bit "shrinking violet" compared to the surrounding text.

Any chance it could have bold added to it's attributes?

cheers, Martin

PS what you get if you add various attributes:-

The posting page seems to be quite widely spaced vertically, so you'd end up with quite a bit of scrolling once you're getting a bit of text in the preview (and my two monitors are 1200 and 1440 pixels tall).

Separately, I've often thought that the posting page would work better if the preview goes below the text box, not above.

Cheers, Martin

Will there be a like button eventually? I thought it was coming with the upgrade.

It'll come.  :)


Likes were installed on the dev site, but were a problem when live for some reason. That will happen, however. Was a big request before we started this effort, so it will happen.
its coming, but the current patch messes up the layout of the new forum, so i'm not installing it, it will come back either when SMF release the new version (like is on their list to be include) or when I find a better way to update the patch, current focus is on basic functions, its on my list ;)

Really top feedback guys. Really is brilliant help!

Per the L2 headlines, I can manually fix those tonight, so Jester and Mark don't need to add that to the list.

Apologies for that error just now. We won't try and install a mod that causes an error like that again and we'll give notice in advance.

Lost one of the settings in "My Messages"-- used to have "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default" enabled. Had to go back into the preferences and re-enable it.

The old forum was defaulted to "not save". People had to select that option, so that's normal.

New site is looking good with new colors and very calming to the eye. I won’t mention the font being a bit small, or I guess I just did. :D Funny how in my mind's for the new logo I was thinking the orbiting chevron off the old NASA meatball and was pleased to see it on the new one, some of you must be mind readers. What I see orbiting is the FDL-5 lifting body, works for me!  ;D
