Hi everyone,

First - wishing you all a decent holiday time with friends and family in whatever format you are allowed to. It's been a year and it's going to be another one soon.

Second - we have upgraded the forum tonight, and all features. Everything should be fine. IF you notice anything out of order let me know here.

1- You may find the Attach files option has changed, is. When you click on it, it will open as usual to upload your image. Once it is loaded in the bottom of the text editor, click on Insert. It will offer a choice between Thumbnail or Full image. Make your pick and there you go!

2- The second thing you may find has changed, is when you PREVIEW your post: to return to the text in order to continue writing or editing it, just click on PREVIEW again and it will return you to the text editor. I think it used to show two (2) screens, the text editor and preview on top of each other.

And now, a fitting traditional anthem...



Cheers!

André

Which browser are you using?

I'll let Mike decide. But it is indeed useful to tie in with previous posts or threads discussing similar issues, so it could prove a valuable resource. :)

If @Mike Greene is still looking for a spot to more prominently feature the latest Member's Compositions, then maybe this Similar Threads area could be devoted to that?

Based on what it's showing for "Similar threads" to the few threads I tried, it's not very helpful. This thread, for instance, is recommending a couple Studio One threads, even though I don't see any relation. In my Sunset Strings thread, the "Similar Threads" are about Shreddage and a Chinese Guqin.

Seems like unnecessary clutter, so I think we can ditch it. ka00 has a nice idea about Member Compositions, but it's already easy enough to go to the Member Compositions forum for people interested in that, so I don't think it's necessary.

OK, I deleted it. I may take a bit for the cache to clear up.

Thank you guys for pointing out issues. some work to do there.
I will be back tomorrow to fix what else there is to fix. I need to let the cache clear from the server. I also contacted the theme developer, so I'll sleep on this for now. Keep pointing out the problems you encounter, that is very helpful! :)

IE

I understand it's an old browser that isnt supported, but it still works - I am just looking to have the option to close that warning. Don't need to see it every time a forum page loads. Thanks

There is no option to close that warning, there may be a reason you need to upgrade your browser. HOWEVER, I have made a modification to the code, let me know if it changed anything?

Cheers!

I think the ignore thread feature might be broken since the update. I had the 5-letter word thread ignored, but I see it again now. When I try to ignore it, I get an error message about already ignoring it. For me it's no big issue, but if I recall correclty @Polkasound mentioned using the ignore thread feature quite often to declutter the forum, and I bet a few others would be affected too.
