UPDATE: Being worked on now it seems so you can post an image in a thread but sizing is completely broken atm so it will not resize your images if they are large which could make for some wide threads. All images in the thread will display the size of the largest image posted as it is not resizing atm so for now maybe attempt to post a 600x600 version with a link to larger version


Can I assume that the plan is to eventually allow the uploading of 2000x2000 pixel images as is stated in the “FAQ for the new DAZ 3D Forums”, and when the bugs are worked out, the forum will resize the image and allow you to click on it for the larger size, just like in the old forum?


Before you set into stone the 600x600 maximum pixel image size for the reduced image, you might want to consider just restricting the width to 600 pixels, since a taller image doesn’t disrupt the readability of the thread and would allow for a more attractive display of “portrait” formatted images. Otherwise, a portrait oriented image would need to be reduced to much less than 600 pixels wide to keep the height under 600.

The new forums are logging me out after about 15 minutes of inactivity, just like the account section of the store does. That is fine there, but is quite annoying having to constantly re-login all the time, so you might want to add that to your list.

When I attempt to search the old forums, I get an error - just a page full of code.

Thank you

I believe that is the plan though I am not positive..but if it is in the FAQ then I’d say it’s a fair bet it’s what they are hoping for smile

On the size, yeah 600 wide is the bigger restriction. Technically you can go up to 800 wide before it breaks anything but it like squishes the image right at the edge of the thread width then. Anyway yes you’re correct. I update my post to reflect it is width smile I was trying to keep up with everyone and just wasn’t thinking about it smile

Really trivial maybe-bugs, if they haven’t been posted before:


Font size

seems to break at the first single-space. Which makes it more tedious to shrink multiple paragraphs.


But it can be exploited to give me a double-space. (At the cost of losing the option of normal sized text).


.
Unless I use a shrunken period, which kinda defeats my purpose.

But not a blank line at the bottom.

MFD for Genesis Wonderland Expansion is $16.95

but

when i select PC items only it says for the same product $1.99

so i put it in my cart but in the checkout it turned into $16.95 again ohh

what is it now a PC item or not?  hmmm

i’d like to buy it but i’m not getting it for $16.95 and then it turns out it should be just $1.99 raspberry

I am having similar problems with pricing.
Prices change (& items disappear) when I change the number of products shown on the page.

If I view a platinum club item it may or may not be priced at $1.99.
When looking at new releases with the default viewing settings, Aiden is the newest product - if I change it to 60 products viewed per page then there are atleast 6 products newer than Aidan - the total number of products also increases.


Sorry, I should have posted this in the Store problems thread

Sooo ... there are 34 pages already for this topic.  Until you actually open the topic, then there are only 3.

Same thing is happening with other topics where the page counts is wrong in the list or even in the topic itself.

I’ve noticed that too using the New Posts search.  The number of pages is actually the post count.  Using the regular forums, the page numbers seem to be correct.

Ah, so that’s the answer? I nearly went mad trying to get to the next page of threads because i thought there were 4 pages, or whatever, and I couldn’t find any links.

OK. Please enable the forum name for New Posts!! I always start in New Posts, but I ignore posts from forums I have no interest in. The way it is right now, I have no idea if I should look at posts or not.

Where are our paragraphs when we post?? I use return, but get no spacing.

Please don’t inundate me with e-mail notifications!! We need a site-wide option to switch them off, or have it off by default.

Can we get the email notifications under control please?  I am getting dozens of notifications; basically the system emails me every time someone posts to a thread I am subscribed to, whether or not I visited since the last email; that needs to stop.

Oh, and why is the limit for image widths going to be set at 600 pixels when the new forums can handle 800 just fine?  Surely there is no point in making the limit the same when the new system works fine with a higher one.

I’m still not getting any notification emails from the new store except for the newsletters — no forum notifications, no purchase notifications.  (Yes I’ve checked my spam filter.)


And I realize this is going to be pretty far down on the priority list, but the easiest way for me to check what was going on in the topics I’d posted to wasn’t the emails, it was the egosearch.  I forget what the button was because I had it set up in favorites, here’s the link:  http://forum.daz3d.com/search.php?search_id=egosearch  — I’d really like to have that function back.  confused

There’s only a General Freepozitory. Are we not having program specific freepozitories now, like the DAZ Studio Freepozitory?

Is the Members Only part of the forum not working yet? Whenever I select it from the link at the top of the page, I just get the following error, despite being logged in:

The following errors were encountered
You are not authorized to view this forum

I wasn’t sure if it was just me, or if that part of the forum isn’t ready yet.

Thanks for that post; I know that method, but it doesn’t solve the problem long term.  I’d like to subscribe to a thread if I post in it usually, so that’s fine; I just want it to email me once until I visit again, like a proper forum does.  I posted about it so that DAZ know they have yet another bug in the new site they need to add to their fix-it list.  Switching to this new engine can’t be any fun for them, I know how much fun it isn’t debugging code provided by other people.

 

This makes me more determined than ever to write my own code when I open my own business site next year, especially for the forums.
