Another minor issue to add to the list…  I’ve been logged out of the forum automatically a few times tonight, and as annoying as it was, I was asked for my username and password.  Rejected.  Looked it up and typed it in manually.  Rejected.  Hmm.  (Thought hard.)  Tried e-mail and password.  Success!  Please do update the text for that form to request an e-mail address instead of user name.


Is a “Last edited on xx-xx-xxxx at xx:xx” in the list of bells and whistles to velcro onto the car?  (Or the forum…whatever.)


Seven posts to go before I’m not a newbie anymore…a newbie from 2006…heh!

To be honest, what I can’t understand is that there is any commercial forum software out there that doesn’t have easy options to put the new threads at the top of the list and to move any threads with new posts to the top of the list. It just doesn’t seem logical that there would be.

I don’t like all the changes to Daz Studio.  The old system worked perfectly fine and now they have just screwed up the whole system and it is working worse.  I am so disappointed in Daz.  They have still not given us our art galleries back for ArtZone.  My friends enjoyed viewing my art gallery and now I have no resource on daz that is showing our art galleries.  I thought ArtZone was cool and how it show cased our art galleries.  I want ArtZone back.  The other daz studio galleries have too many demands, sizing and qualifications if they show the art you post or not.  It takes the fun out of art by putting too many restrictions on the art itself.

Have you considered deviantART?  Much wider exposure, and easy for your friends to see without them having to log on.  Here’s my dA gallery (note the easy-to-use folders on the left) and here’s my dA profile page.  People can also get together and show their art in Groups for whatever reasons (for example, I’m running one dedicated to umbrellas and parasols in art, here).

Are removed-post notifications supposed to be working?

They removed some off-topic fun, heh.

Granted, it rarely worked on the old forum, for me. (Spam box option is shut off, so I never miss anything… including spam, of course).

That depends whether it was moved or merged. If it was moved to make a new thread, then only the person who made the first post in the “New” thread may get a notification. If it was was merged then only the “owner” of the merged thread will get a notification. If it was just one post that was moved then the poster could get both a notification of it being moved, and an explanatory email from the Forum Team.

Was it anything in particular that you were looking for ?

I just bought the Genisis boots. My antivirus promptly pounced on the file and ATE it, saying it was dangerous.  I have Norton 369, which HATES a lot of Daz productsl this wasn’t the first time it killed a file. I would like to get that product. Putting in a call to customeer service.

Unfortunately Customer Service can’t do much about that—you need to configure Norton to either allow files from DAZ 3D or to alert you but not delete the file automatically.  Then you can test the file with other antivirus programs (I usually use virustotal.com, which allows you to submit a file and run it through 40+ security programs, but I don’t recall what their file size limit is).  Norton tends to pounce on any unknown executable file which hasn’t been downloaded by a lot of people.  When DAZ 3D finishes switching everything to Zip files this should be less of a problem.

This page might help - Click Me.

And there are other steps you can take:

Taozen’s downloader will strip off little bits of junk that get tacked onto the ends of files, that might stop Norton from freaking.
http://taosoft.dk/software/3DConDo/

You could download it in Safe Mode with Networking, if you’re on Windows.
And scan it, like fixmypcmike says.
Then install it. And/or install it to a temporary folder and zip that up, so you’ll have it.
Then reboot back to normal Windows (if that’s what you’re running), and see if Norton still hates the downloaded version.


By the way, Taozen has made a thingy that’ll let you keep track of what you’ve bought:
http://taosoft.dk/software/dazhm/

The store doesn’t stop you from buying something twice - it used to, and it will again (when they fix it).

Interesting, I got a notification that someone had just posted a new post to this thread but when I clicked on the link I got sent to a page that said

And, honestly, it was an easy enough fix to put the latest posted thread on top. It’s just as easy to put the thread with the latest posted to date/time on top. It’s really not rocket science.

 

Unfortunately it isn’t—newest thread on top was a configuration issue which was able to be done by people other than the web developers.  Newest post on top apparently isn’t just a configuration issue.


Actually, it is a configuration issue—well a forum management control panel issue. I spent a few hours yesterday researching EE via google, their support forum and wiki. I noted immediately their support forum behaves like the old DAZ Forum with latest posted to topic on top. That is actually one of the defaults.


I took some notes:

module called discussion forum module


the following has been found in several places for current version as seemingly standard syntax….note what I found earlier re order by—looks like order by has evolved but basic common sense functionality remains.


(I think sort order of posts in forums after initial forum creation is controlled via ‘edit’ of specific forum in the forum management control panel. Looks like no way to change this across all forums at once. CAN change the creation default template that will affect all future forums…...)

———————————
orderby=


orderby=“post_date” The “order” parameter sets the display order of the forum topics. Setting options for this parameter include:

  orderby=”post_date”
  orderby=”recent_post”
  orderby=”title”


sort=


sort=“asc” sort=“desc” The sort order can be “asc” (ascending order or “oldest item first” for dates) or “desc” (descending order or “newest item first” for dates). If you do not use a sort order the default is desc.

 


The above is for the latest version. The syntax is different for the original version of EE but the choices are the same.

have the same problem with genX but I haven`t found a possibility in the norton settings to allow downloads from single sites like daz3d

I can do what I want on settings. Norton remove the genX 64 bit version right after the download.

normaly I will be asked by norton what it should do if there are dangerous or unknown files but not on genX 64bit this will be removed everytime without any asking by norton.
