Another one for the “weird stuff” list - when I click on a link in a forum e-bot, I never know whether I’ll come in at the top of page 1 of the thread, at the top of the last page, or scrolled down to the actual post referred to in the e-bot. This could complicate keeping track of conversations, especially in busy, fast-moving threads.

... If you are not logged in the pictures won’t show…

You can still (manually) retrieve the pictures by copy-pasting the path manually… so, for instance, in my last post in this thread:

http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=190661&start=60 

If I look at the bit that says:

<img  src="postimages/image_1_3416420.jpg"

If you replace the “viewtopic.php?...” bit with the “postimages/...” bit, you get this:

http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/postimages/image_1_3416420.jpg 

Which (for now) seems to pull up the associated image.

HTH (^_^)/

EDIT: sorry about the funky colouring… seems to be a ‘feature’ of this new forum…

Don’t know if this is even considered a bug, but it would be nice to not have to click off the ‘Notify me via email when someone posts in this thread’ button every time I post. If I wanted my email spammed with responses to the threads I watch, I wouldn’t check the forums…

Okay, would it be possible to configure the old forum so that it would show the pictures instead of displaying an URL?

Just wondering if you’re checking the posts in the Members Only area ... some of us are having difficulties with account information related to the Platinum Club.  Thanks! smile

I know, that would be ok for one or two images, but I am talking about my “New centaur ‘n stuff thread” with 1892 posts and many pictures in it.

I see we can navigate to the next or previous post (according the list when we first clicked the thread) from the bottom of the thread but I hope we can get the main forum navigation bar at the bottom too. That way we don’t have to scroll to the top each time we want to go back to the thread list. I always go back to the commons (or whatever section I’m in) to see what threads have been updated before clicking on one. It’s not really a huge deal but more of a convenience thing.

I will make a note of that request smile


Anyone experiencing any issue not on my list or anyone with thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to post to this thread smile

I agree with Quasar. Having the forum links (i believe you call them “breadcrumbs”) at both the top and bottom of the page (as it was in the old forum) is an important usability feature.

I agree. The archived forum needs to be in a usable form.
Having to manually reconstruct the URL for every posted image is not acceptable.

Is there any way to have the new post report emails subject to include the titles of the thread?  Gmail combines all the topic replys in one because they are named the same.

That is something they are supposed to fix at some point though it will probably be awhile till someone can get to that.

Fast reply doesn’t work. When you hit “Submit Post” is takes you to the “Post a New Reply” page, instead of posting what you’ve written.

I’m also getting alot of 404 errors when I try to post. I’ll admit I don’t have a great internet connection, but I didn’t have that problem with the phpbb-based forum.

Also, you can’t search the old forum, which makes it pretty hard to deal with, given that the contents of the forum is so huge.

It would appear that some users are successfully receiving email notifications for new posts in the threads to which they are subscribed.


I am not receiving notifications for my subscribed threads. Is this a widespread problem that will be fixed soon, or do I need to request individual help to fix it for my account?


Thanks,
