You can click the numeric value in the 'New' column under 'Unread topics', or you can try enabling this option in your settings:

Re: New Site Feedback

Ah! Yes, Bob's solution is what I'm looking for. Unread topics seems to cover every section of the forum which is more than I care about Smiley

Re: New Site Feedback

The ability to pin a post to the stop, i.e. make your own sticky (for yourself), that is actually pretty nice and I assume will be very useful for those posts you just don't want to lose track of (without adding the thread to your favourite)

 

/edit - Okay, you can also float a specific Board, that's pretty nice for General Chat Addicts Shocked

Hey Maurice

3 - all library articles should've been migrated and were definitely there when we tested yesterday! 


I still only see 10 items in the Library - most of them quite old?

Re: New Site Feedback

 There's 7 pages worth there Maurice Wink Did you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there's a "Next".

I did moan about the migration going to be using the Latest articles in the RH column, because as you can see they aren't actually the latest, they appear to be because they were edited - presumably to get rid of some bugs before migration. They should have used a "Most Read Articles" template but used the same one as made for the Blogs - not that any of the latest Blog articles are of any real interest, having "Most Read" might have proved interesting Crazy

It is on the list to be sorted.
We could do with a pager bar at the top of each page as well. You could try a Search on the Library if you are looking for a specific article.

Re: New Site Feedback

Thanks for 'Tip'  I was only trawling to check out some of the new / revised pages.

What an appalling User Interface to the Library it's far worse than the original (unfinished) component on the old site.

I hadn't tried scrolling to the bottom of the long page - as you suggest there needs to be a paging bar at the top of the page.

This component of the Forum needs a lot of work to make it User friendly - and usable. Roll eyes  But at a lower priority than most of the other 'bugs' found so far.

Re: New Site Feedback

Very true and I said similar things, and as you say it is also not exactly high on the Priority list, but it gives a very poor impression of things and the Library.

Re: New Site Feedback

I wonder if there are any browser extensions out there that take 'responsive' sites and make them more desktop friendly? I could use it for quite a few websites as well as this one.

I've largely given up here. Takes far to long to scan for and read any new content.

Re: New Site Feedback

Yes it was easy to scan new stuff on the old site but here the result is spread out page after page.

 

Far too time consuming for me.

I initially felt the same way, but after a day or so 'playing' I discovered ways to achieve the same results as on the old SMF forum in about the same number of keystrokes.

The frustrating bit is that most of the new features which will (optimism creeping in Smiley) help, such as Notifications; Unread Topics etc are currently inconsistent.

I recommend a bit of perseverance - it will pay off.

#2 the images that are missing, make the place look terrible, any chance of setting them all to a default image?--8<--SNIP--8<--
It looks like #2, the images, are to do with a certificate issue on the hosting platform.  They appear to be heading towards https://.......Lithium.com/legacyfs/online/avatars/avatar_number.png but as there is a problem with the certificate, all the browsers reject displaying the image.

This should be sorted now.

Re: New Site Feedback

That sounds like the issue with the Lithium servers and delayed email that's been covered in a couiple of other threads.
