Nah, I can change it back if you want?

Small, but annoying issue. If you quote somebody's post which includes a hyperlink, the board messes up the URL by adding http:// to the start and removing all the rest of the encoding.

For an example, see Mr Farenheit's recent post in the Guffaw thread: https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php?msg=4762111

Minor irritation - the mouse over on the Members button seems to be a bit too aggressive, and it keeps on popping over the subforum breadcrumb trail in desktop mode.

Thanks. Damn it. No ideas at the minute.

Quote from: Paul Calf on Yesterday at 12:08:49 PMYes please :)

Done; If anyone else wants their display name changed back please let me know what it was originally and I'll sort it.

I suspect it's the same issue reported here. Looks like someone submitted a fix for SMF 2.1 RC3, so not sure why it's not working in RC4.

If mine could just go to "Ferris" I'd be very grateful. I've never liked my longer username which was a bad pun on a film I don't like that only made sense if you were looking at fairground equipment at the time.

Barry can you leave it as NotFerris please, cheers.  Lad had his chance.

I'm trying to reclaim The Brand here mate. Can't leave it lying out there for any old interloper to get their mitts on.

The Mollusk

Couple of minor gripes browsing on mobile: The page number links aren't present at the top of threads with multiple pages, and similarly the directory path thing (Cook'd and Bomb'd > Forums > General Bullshit > madhair60 worst poster ever thread) has disappeared from the bottom of the page.

I also concur that Ferris should suffer.

Yes I'm working on stuff like this, but came down with something yesterday so spent all day sleeping. Just have to make do while I figure out all the changes and how to edit the new templates etc.

Landscape mode brings some of this stuff back currently. It's not ideal but I have to use it for some admin functions at the minute too.

shiftwork2

A disappointing afternoon enlivened only by laminating a 'wheelbueller' label from my Dymo which I now move down the screen.  PM me if you want one.  I printed several hundred.

mothman

I've had my username so long it I had the chance to change it I'd never be able to decide what.

Are we wedded to the thread listings have the thread starter and last reply's user avatars? I don't want to be that guy, but it's sucking resources, and looks a little too busy.

To end on a positive: Love the current banner.

Barry Admin

Yeah I think it looks great, sorry.

Glad you like the new banner by @QDRPHNC :-)

The Guppy

I wish the "New" badges were a bit bigger on mobile. They're what I want to tap almost 100% of the time, and the smallest target.

A lot of forums now take you to the first unread post by default. I prefer it that way, but it freaks users out at first.

shoulders

No please god no don't make them bigger. Personally I would prefer they were removed altogether. It's pretty obvious when a new/recent post will have happened.

The Guppy

I agree that they're ugly. I'd prefer they were gone, and the default was to go to the newest unread post. But I don't think I'm gonna get that.

Clicking on the button takes you to the latest post though, which is very useful.

Yes, this has happened to me many, many times and I was going to raise it too.

Everything else is great!

I can't even imagine using the forum without them. The only alternatives I can think of are reading the full thread every time or going to the last page and browsing back until you reach a post you remember. Or just missing potentially huge amounts of replies.

Nope, sorry. 

Can change the icon to a bigger and/or less ugly one though if someone wants to make one.

Uncle TechTip

A bit of padding around the New button might be enough. I just keep hitting the thread title and getting first post.

olliebean

Larger New buttons:

.new_posts {
  font-size: 15px !important;
  padding: 2px 4px !important;
}

Fiddle with font size and padding to taste. I just wanted them slightly bigger as the default size is a bit fiddly to click on. Not sure if Stylus or anything similar is available for phone browsers, but this works on the desktop.

(They're not icons btw, in this new theme they're text.)

Ohhh thanks! I thought they were still graphics. I'm feeling a bit better today so will get that changed in a bit, appreciate it!
