*raises hand* I got another one. The ‘Forum Home’ breadcrumb is broken.  It goes to ’ http://www.daz3d.com/forums/ ’ instead of ’ http://www.daz3d.com/forums ‘, which makes it go to the ‘The site is down for maintenance’ page, instead of the actual first page of the forums.

ThinMick is correct. The “Forum Home” breadcrumb link is now broken. I believe it was originally working.

Has anyone requested that we stay on the forum page we are on? If I read a thread on page 5 and then drop back into the commons I’m dropped back to page 1. That ALWAYS was a bad thing.


Or am I doing something wrong.

Sounds like a job for your browser’s Back Button!

The link to the categories is supposed to go to their 1st page.

Personally, I just have to add my voice to those Mooing that the forums will never be fully functional until The Millennium Cow is released!!

The categories will never “Sort By Date” until The Millennium Cow is released!!

I think I lost a post in spell check. Anyway.

I didn’t see anyone mention this: The “required products” seems to be broken for me. It either doesn’t show all the required products for an item - or - it shows items that aren’t actually required. If I reload the page several times, I can get different required products lists.

I’ve lost posts in spell check too ...

Would like links, esp to offsite places, to open in a new tab not in the resident tab.

Would like way more than ‘2’ pages to show for ‘how many to read through’ before the last page arrives! Some threads have a last page option; some don’t.

Much prefer recent posts and updates to posts bouncing back to the 1st page!

So I’m the only one who liked the old Forum better than the last forum? Everything worked by the Forum software you did not have to use the browser to do what a good forum should do. blank stare
.
I also would prefer all links to open in a NEW tab. That is a PITA. I have hit some sites that will now allow BACK in my browser.

I have hit some sites that will now allow BACK in my browser.

I agree it would be nice for links to automatically open in new tabs, but I just want to say a few things:


1. If you have a middle mouse button, middle clicking opens a link to a new tab. I’ve been using this on all websites for quite a few years now (instinctively), so i’ve never noticed if the Daz forums used to do this automatically for left clicking.


2. If you ever encounter a website that does that annoying thing where it doesn’t let you press back, it’s usually due to a hidden page that quickly redirects you to the homepage, so every time you’re pressing back you just keep on getting redirected. In cases like this, right click on the back button, and you should see a list of previous pages, allowing you to skip numerous pages and get back to the one you want (this can also be accessed by clicking on the little arrow next to the back button, if there is one). Just simply click on the Daz one, and you’re there.


I use Firefox, but I believe both of these work with all browsers.


EDIT: It also would be nice is the forum would actually format paragraphs properly!

Thank you for that heads up, I’m still new to my OS and the New IE 9 so I do not know all the hidden things yet. I just pretty much use them straight out of the box. Thats one of the reasons DS4Pro and I dont get along well. I have to Right click to find all the stuff I need to do most of the time. I agree with the formatting issue as well.

Okay, now I’ve got login issues with the forum. When click the Log In link it takes me straight to my account, yet the forum does not recognise the fact that I am logged it.

Thank ghu for having a second browser.

Seems to be an issue ‘sometimes’ with posting, if one ‘previews’ the post ... it opens in the same window/tab, if one checks the links in one’s post, it opens in the same window/tab ... but hitting the back button trying to get back to the composing page so one can either edit OR post one’s post is a no-go. Firefox will not ... says something about security features and it can’t/won’t resend info??? Never had this problem before ... I do know that I’m not into re-writing posts for every glitch encountered ....

I just received my first email notification that a thread that I’m subscribed to received a reply.

...


The title of the thread is:
Star Trek Builders Thread!


The post can be found at:

Clicking on the link in the email took me to the start of the thread, not to the reply.

A thought about the Forum post ordering issue.

The Commercial Thread forum is at least ordering things with the most recently started threads first.  Perhaps whoever is looking over the forum software could see what’s different about that forum than the others?

It still isn’t moving recently posted threads up to the top, but at least new threads wouldn’t languish on the last page.

I have to log out of my account, to log into the forum. Started last night. Hear that web team? The bugs don’t take the weekend off, LOL.


Logoff caught me when I tried to preview a PM reply. Had fun reconstructing that.
