Any chance the sections on the homepage will regain the collapse function?
The new board software doesn't support more than one question in a poll.
That's the thing I miss most.
Edit to add: when I return to a thread the next day, it never takes me to the last read post, the way it used to do. I have searched the settings options in vain for a fix.
Why do some images or attachments or whatever show up either as totally blank or as some weird icon that looks like "[IM"? This happens to me on Firefox and Chrome. Is there a setting I need to change?
When someone on my "ignored user" list starts a thread, the whole thread disappears from my visibility (rather than just the initial post, as was the case on the old board).
Is there a way to adjust the ignore list settings to ignore just posts instead of threads? Or do I have to take the stupid by the horns and stop using the ignore list?
It seems you have to go into a specific forum to click on the little blue button to go to the last read post. You can't do it from outside the forum.
That requires a server-side template fix or addon. Personally, I'd be in favor.
What I always do is link to the "Recent Posts" list as my starting place.
Any time you click into a link to an unread thread-e.g. from the list of threads in the forum view, or the Recent Posts or New Posts lists)--it should take you to the first unread post in the thread. You don't have to click on the blue button, just clicking the thread title should do the right thing from all thread lists as far as I know. These links are coincidentally all over toward the left side of the screen.
Lists of forums are different. They don't have a link to the threads. They do have a link to the latest post, labelled "Latest", over to the right.
That's the way it works on the current XenForo board. It used to work differently on the old IPB board.
Instead of having a link to the last post in a thread, the main page would link to the latest unread post in that thread. For example, this cache of the main page from 2014 shows that the Drew 2.0 thread was the last one bumped, but the link went to the getnewpost view of that thread (equivalent to XenForo's /unread).
So do all the other bbcode ways of resizing images, as far as I can find ([img=100x50], [img width="100" height="50"], [img width=100]) and I don't see a way to drop into HTML. Is this just not an option now?
You don't have to click the blue button, clicking the threat title is enough (at least that's the way it works for me, not sure if this is a setting).
It's not an option now. HTML posting was always fraught, and XenForo's got no way to pass in size tags. I may look at creating a custom tag that allows this, but for now you have to resize the image before you upload it.
That's right, it should work that way for everyone.
I was dead for a while, but I got better. What happened to the fora about music and film? Are they deleted or archived or lost...?
Also, hello, all.
Welcome back. It's now known as Omar Is Dead.
Cheers, mate, and good to read you, too.
Sure and I figured out that bit, but there also used to be a whole section anent 5 Songs and another anent 5 Films, and so on, sort of getting-to-know-you, take-a-week-t-share-your-likes fora within the artsy bits of P&G&c. I reckon they've all been sunk in the intermire, our own wee Gmork's militia after the Nothing descended; am I simply looking in the wrong places? There were loads of lovely threads in there about music and film and all that. Have that lot simply vanished into the aether, or is it more that I'm too idiotic to find the posts?
When SoSH moved to the current server in November, a lot of the archived threads didn't make the transfer, so those long-lost discussions are either still in backups or "vanished into the aether." I'll leave it to Sumner or Nip to give you a better evaluation of those threads' status.
I want to delete a bunch of PMs. But I can't seem to figure out how! Is "delete" and "leave conversation" the same thing?
Leave Conversation is usually what you want. It'll delete it from your inbox, but if the other person responds to that conversation then the whole conversation will be restored so you can see the context.
how do I pay my unpaid subscription? the Paypal interface is as confusing as heck, and I want to pay. My credit card/bank account stuff got all messed up, and I am still a "member" but haven't paid my $20 yearly due. I get a lot of value, so I want to get this caught up ASAP.
My subscription is scheduled to expire in 2 hours it is not linked with PayPal, Ive not received a bill, will it auto-renew? Help..
I'm still having trouble marking a specific forum read. Is there an easy way to do this?
EDIT: I'm using Safari on my iPhone almost exclusively. Not sure if this makes a difference. I can get it to work with the UI.X theme, so maybe I'll just have to use that.
When I click in the search box in the upper right, the search form shows up behind the black header/menu bar. Is that just me? In Chrome here.
Using the app on my iPhone, I do not have the Views and News Game Thread (Big Events is there, however). I've tried deleting and reinstalling the app, to no avail. Anything I can do?
It's not available through the app. Mods say, "feature not bug," going back to the post election shit show. Although, without Corp, this could possibly be revisited?
You have to go through the mobile browser.
I'm trying to post pics from my Google photos. I tried pasting the link but that didn't work. I copy/pasted the pic and it shows up for me but not for others. How do I correctly post these pics?
I can't figure out how to change my signature -- make any change at all (including shortening it, and my sig is short to begin with) and it tells me my signature is too long and won't allow any changes.
I subscribed to the V&N Game Threads by clicking "Watch Forum" in the top right, and then it now shows up under "Subscribed" in the app.
Other than using the Amazon link, is there a way to donate to SoSH? I see tags like member, bronze and lifetime.
How do you make the link in a post be, say, a sentence and not the ridiculously long actual link? I think it's called a "labeled link" I know there used to be a way to easily do it, but I don't recall.
For instance, post #59 has links that are just part of the sentences.
Copy the link you want to use. Type the words you want to be the linked text. Highlight those words and click the link button. Paste in the link in the pop up window.
This is the linked text
EDIT: Got it. Thanks.
