Quote from: Inverse Effect on May 02, 2022, 12:36:27 AMI don't like the new look tbh. Can we have a feature to use the old version/skin?

It's not like years gone by where we've made a new theme and kept the old ones. It's a major forum update and all the themes had to be recreated from scratch due to the significant changes. That's why all the old themes were removed completely. They were too out of date to port over. I tried to keep things as close as possible.

QuoteMaybe it's my eyes. But everything feels really stretched and narrow. (I'm running on 1920x1080) So i doubt it's the resolution. Like i said, everything feels too elongated.

If you're viewing on a desktop, the general widths are exactly the same as before.

QuoteAlso my signature is now cut off at the bottom further indication a more narrower picture to me, Losing signature space is a big negative imo. Since now i further have to adjust my signature sizes going forward with limits the space i can create stuff within.

Okay, I fixed the signature size.

QuoteI don't like the inclusion of a *like* button. This isn't twitter. I think disagreements or agreements on a forum should be discussed not just up voted or down voted. People have posted a lot of unpopular opinions on here. And it's always fun to read them. But like i said introducing a like or dislike button is just gonna cause people to spam it on things they agree or disagree on.

Yes, that's why everybody hated Karma and it was changed. I remember when Alien Experience had it and people were trying to team up with other people to give people they didn't like, numerous dislikes.I think it's more suited to the homepage comments. I do think it's interesting on places like Eurogamer where you can downgrade comments and if they get too many, they are simply hidden. Like I said, I'm testing the water. There's no dislike option here so I'm hoping there won't be any of that happening.

Quote from: SiL on May 02, 2022, 01:02:07 AMThe mobile header feels unnecessarily complicated compared to how it used to be,

Okay, I've got rid of the messages/alerts box on mobile. I can see how it looks a bit busy to have both the forum one and my header one. It still shows when you've got new pms and alerts but it's not as fancy as the forum one where it opens up and shows which ones you have. Ideally, I'd like to have the forum one in a collapsible box that is maybe hidden by default.

Quoteand for some reason some thread titles are twice the size of others. It also zooms in when I go to reply and starts to cut off the right side sometimes.

Is title sizes wrong on the Thread display?

Quote from: BlueMarsalis79 on May 02, 2022, 09:08:20 AMDon't know if it's intentional but YouTube links also no longer embed a video on mobile.

Have you got a topic example? The way youtube embedding has changed too because it's part of the bbcode in the post editor. So I've tried to hook into that instead of using a separate mod.

QuoteI don't like that you can't see avatars on mobile,

QuoteStill curiously not an option when using new replies or unread posts.

Okay, added them and avatars are back. I've altered the boardindex to get rid of board description.

Quote from: Local Trouble on May 01, 2022, 06:34:20 PMToo bad I can't resize the fonts to make the site readable.

Do you mean you're using the Accessibility options in your phone browser to make text bigger generally? Which fonts do you feel are too small? I've tried to keep things a similar size as before.


Well i appreciate you listening to the feedback! Especially regarding the signatures.

Honestly I didn't mind the previous look but what's been done for mobile and desktop is neat.

Alerts is my favourite new feature, and makes keeping up with conversations so much easier. I like the "likes" feature if only because people going "I agree" does not a conversation make and so streamlines that aspect.

It's definitely functioning better after all this feedback. Looks a lot nicer.

I'm curious what the attached signifies though? I'm wondering if I missed that on the old iterations.

Looks like the icons for the boards not loading. That's what I see there on mine.

Fixed the missing images.

Yeah, I'll be making a few more changes. I feel like the Last Post By should be on the MessageIndex in mobile instead of the Topic Started By.

@Darkness on desktop it appears that one can no longer click on a large image embedded within a post, in order to make it bigger.

Here's two examples:

Made some updates this morning.

Added collapsible blocks for the login info and news headlines on mobile and the login info is hidden by default.
Added last post info to messageindex on mobile.

Yeah, that's another change they made for some reason.  ::)  Widths and heights aren't saved anymore when you add an image. It does make it clickable if you've actually specified a width and height in the bbcode. It's hard to get the widths until you've downloaded it. I've got around it, I think and it seems to be working.

I don't know if any other members experience such problems but I can't post instagram links as I used to by just copypasting the link and cutting that part in the end. They either just dissappear or don't show up properly. Can something be done about it, please ?

Thanks, it's working for me on desktop and mobile now.

Can also see Kradan's three embedded instagram posts now.
