Ok, so the New (old) forum software has now been in place a few days as of today (8/22/11).

I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. 

So far, I have found it to be faster loading, and of course, no login/access denied issues (unless of course you are actually not logged in, which is what it is supposed to do).

Hmmm.  Message edit screen empty after a brief HTML code flash.... then empty screen.

Signature photos are there.   Ok



Ok great!   I did see a flash when the edit screen first shows up but, the message text stayed this time.

Everything else working a bit faster and no gliches.

No issues noted and the transitions from page to page do seem faster.

I will put in a separate button for Reply and Quote, but for now, it will quote by default unless you use the Reply button at the top and bottom of the page, not to the left of a post.

Also, you can always delete or edit the Quote to your liking

The page load speed is MUCH better, for those of us low-lifes still on dial-up...
It's taking a while to get used to stuff being moved around, such as the post reply, edit, quote buttons, etc. Folks will have to change their "Favorites/Bookmark" addys, too, which I have not done yet here at werk. I do remember this software from the time before dirt was invented, so I'm kinda used to it somewhat, but it's still a major departure, visually, that what was here. As long as the bugs go away, I'm happy....
Thanks for the time you put into making this site ROCK!Clap
Edit check....see no issues with the edit box coming up here...no html
Apparently , the BB code has changed somewhat? Cannot insert an image/smiley using the|/IMG|

Edit check #2...I DID just see the html text for just about the blink of an eye just now....


Edit check # 3...WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO MY FIRST EDIT?!?!?!? It disappeared! dammit....I ain't writin all of it again.....Angry

Um, what?  You mean the quote box in my last reply to this thread (and this reply) doesn't show the entire thread above?  
That is because after I click Reply and the Quote box shows lots of stuff, I edit it to show just the part I want.  You can do that too.

And you may.  It has to convert it to the WYSIWYG format after it loads. The import thing is that it does convert it and that it only tasks a half second to do it.

No.... at the bottom of this page...unlike the other threads it does not have the button for "PostnewTopic" or the Reply button. The only reply I see is the red reply box that quotes
but I see Joel was able to do a regular post is it just missin on my screen?
I went back to check another topic thread and all the buttons where in place on bottom of screen....but not on this one?

It's just you, Albo.....LOLI see the Search, Post New Thread, Reply, and New Survey at the bottom of the page here....

I see another potential issue for dialing-up folks....the one long page of posts(instead of page 1,2,3,4,etc) for a thread is gonna be a problem for threads with a lot of pics........

The reason is because in this forum only Mods/Admins can post new thread. All others can only reply.

I never thought about this being in the forum it is in, but that DO explain it.


Adam, on dial-up, the html text does take longer to convert than it does with highspeed. Here at home, it is taking about 30-40 seconds to convert, but with the DSL at the shop, it does it so quick you barely even notice it. Just a comment, not an issue. Thumbs Up
