I have just tried and was able to go back to Page 443 in the freepository (the first page of the freezie that is) using the page numbers at the top of the forum. I did only try the one forum
Thanks for checking chohole, after seeing your post, I went back and checked again.
Now it seems I can go back further… I checked up to eight pages back in the commons and eight at the freepozitory, and I checked the last/first page (443?) at freepozitory too… it seems to work now.
Previously I was getting “No posts exist for this topic” (or whatever that notice one gets when someone removes a post from a thread)... I would get it for anything over page 5.
Since the post I was trying to find was about two weeks or so before the change, I tried using the page numbers, since I had no idea what day it was… I even tried several times over several days…
Probably just some heavy traffic or server ghosts.
I swear it happened… really… neither rum or tequila were involved in any of that either.
I’m pretty sure…
Anyway, thanks for checking.
No, it isn’t your imagination.
I’ll get so far and the old forum likes to just give up - or is that me? Can’t remember.
It really is a shame that all of these important old posts are stuck in this super-slow, pictureless environment (you don’t have to re-submit the info on how to see the images - I know now), but it’s better than loosing them completely, maybe… I guess…
What I don’t get is how insufficient our new forums are. What gives with that? Daz actually paid money for this forum? Okay… I couldn’t code my way out of a paper bag. But why is it that every other forum… everywhere, even free services, have better forums than this?
This is a place that, for the most part - aside from the people who actually go to work there - exists only on the web. More… it is supposed to be catering to artists.
The old system was supposedly held together with duct tape. I feel inclined to contact Magento and send them a nice “Shame on you” letter for actually accepting money for this junk. As was mentioned slightly above, it’s been over three-quarters of a year already - a forum should have better formatting capabilities than this at first launch, without anyone at Daz having to touch a thing! But that’s my thoughts, and I don’t know how any of this works. It does get frustrating when your trying to help people. Can’t even embed videos? Wow!
At least it gives us the ability to capitalize our letters and insert smileys.
