Bug-Splattering for the new Forum Face!

#1 Post by Gin » Thu Mar 10, 2016 10:08 am

:wave: Hullo Peepsickles!

As Rant has already mentioned ways in which he has managed to break the new system, it would be good to have a thread to collect all issues and bugs people have come across :mrgreen:

So if you find owt, please don't stress out Forum dad by poking it like a Zit! :hammer:
Fanks for your support :D x

Current notes:
- Tapatalk offline - Seems to be back in Action!

- Swear filter not working

- An option to move the profile picture etc to the RH side of the screen
Sorry but this will not happen the only way is to change the style and have an option of styles

- Ability to have links automatically open in a new tab

- Gallery / Garage functions as a possible add on?
The gallery may make a return

- Chat room intermittently working
- Might be useful to have a list of "People in chat" again, if possible
List is at the bottom of the main page

- List of Important threads (Hot links) have disappeared
- Especially important for Rally Thread / Start of Season meet etc
- Active Topics etc have been re-added to the top of the page!
Site news to be looked at

- No way to "Like a post"
- Fozzie has mentioned having a 'high-five' or 'thumbs-up' rather than likes to avoid 'misuse'
The like system will make a return but when is anyones guess at the moment

P.s. I have to admit there are some new things I really like!
The colour picker is Awesome now :D

I had that EAB, but then when I went out and back in again my message was there. Doesn't seem to store any of the old messages though. I'm sure Stu is cheerily fixing it right now ;)

Not a bug but is there anyway of getting back the "last post <insert time>" on the main catagorie sections like Bike Chat Pitstop etc? Otherwise i have to open each one individually only to see no one has posted.

Are you viewing the browser on fullscreen?

I tend to have mine on half a screen or less and this information is hidden but is visible on full screen. :D

P.s. Another useful tip is to click the "Mark all as read" and then the icon on the right of the forum section will remain white until a new post appears, when it will turn orange. Might help you out..
