On the old forums we could choose which users we removed seeing the signatures from. It was not an all or nothing option. The way the old forum did it was great. Sure an all or nothing option (which I already knew about) was good but it's far from ideal. I think most of us just want to hide from fiew the few offending signatures. By offending I don't mean bad content, I just mean overly large ones that really block the flow of the forums.Do you mean signatures beneath people's posts? If so, that option is still there in Preferences > Content Options.
This is not an option in the add-on currently. I've asked the owner if they plan on adding it.Open link in new tab when clicking from SB rather than same window. (Sure I can middle click, but old habits and all!)
Unfortunately this is just the way this add-on has been built. They haven't included the option to switch this. The like button isn't the only thing that is shown when you hover over it though. Other important stuff like reporting, linking, editing, deleting, etc are included there.Additionally, is the old timestamp system a viable option? I'm not a fan of the vague one (a minute ago) that's the default, and the fact that it goes away to show a Like button (a Like button in a fast-moving web chat client? what?) when you hover over it is a bit annoying.
Apparently they removed the hover option on purpose in Xenforo 2. You can read about the decision here. I'm also annoyed at this, and it seems many others are in that thread (and the two linked threads at the end of that thread) but it seems so far nobody has come up with a solution for it.On the old forum you could mouse hover over the alerts to see them. Now you have to click the alert icon to open a new window to see your alerts. A decent quality of life feature not in the new forums. A feature many people (myself inclided used a lot).
I think the only feature I've seen lost that hasn't been brought up is the old feature we had that let you hide user's signatures if you don't want to view them. If it's already been brought up, my apologies, but I figured I'd point it out.
I can't find anything that has been developed to do this with Xenforo 2 yet. I'm keeping an eye out. In the meantime we may have to set a limit on the size of signatures again like we did in the past. I'll discuss this with the other staff over the next week or so.Is the forum signature hide option returning?
I am sure a lot of people would really appreciate having this feature again.
This may just be more of a preference thing on my part, but I'm finding it difficult to keep track of things since the upgrade from a layout point of view. Everything seems a bit more floaty now where previously things felt tight and compact. I'm finding myself avoiding the SB because the larger fonts and large gaps between lines make me feel like I'm out of the loop if I turn away for 30 seconds, and conversations don't seem to remain as focused for as long because it's easy to get lost when there's more than a couple of conversation threads going on.
Again, this may just be me, and I've only tried on mobile so far. I just feel like the new layout options are restrictive in terms of how much info can be on the screen at once and I'm having to do a lot of scrolling to keep up.
I realise this is a very broad thing to bring up, just thought I would anyway.
The overall design has changed pretty extensively between Xenforo 1 and 2 and they were apparently trying to make it more mobile friendly. I personally like the way the forums and shoutbox look on mobile generally now and can't say I've had too much an issue in this regard. Nonetheless I appreciate the feedback, but at the moment this is unfortunately something people are just going to have to get used to for the most part. I'll try and look with @Satan when we have time and see what changes we can make to templates to emulate a more compact look but that could take quite some time, especially given that the current setup in terms of design is more complex than before.On mobile everything seems bigger and that means I can see less content onscreen. Is there a way to when viewing the thread and forum lists to make it more like the older size?
I've not been able to emulate the same issue exactly. For me I highlighted the third point and then clicked delete/backspace and it removed the text but not the bullet point. But then clicking delete/backspace a second time removed the point without the need to go into the BB code.Another issue I've found is not being able to remove the bullet points from your post without doing so manually by moving the [/list] in the bb code.
Say you have the following
Say you want to remove the bullet from point 3 as you made that by mistake. In the old forum you could highlight that and click the bullet button again and all done. Test 3 has no bullet. On the new forums there is no way to do this without going into the BB code.
- Test 1
- Test 2
- Test 3
Also as an aside, it's not as simple anymore just to highlight text and press the bullet button like on the old forum. These forums look for typing strusture. As in it differentiates between returns and shift + returns and puts the bullet at the last point you pressed return without shift. Much more complicated that on the old forums.
Also removing links from text in a post is handled differently on these forums. on the old forum you could just click on the link button again and if highlighted, the link would be removed. On the new forums you have to clink on the link while editing the post and then remove the link.
I've removed the other room so it should default as Shoutbox anyway now.Is it possible to get the SB to default on the "Shoutbox" room rather than the other one?
I've now moved this up again to where (I think) it was before the upgrade.The birthday widget being so low on the sidebar makes it incredibly easy to overlook
I've added a 2 min cooldown. That is, he won't give the same response within 2 mins. (the option is only available to configure it per response, but I think that's enough)Can we get a cooldown on scrapper sayings please, it doesn't need to be spammed as much as it is.
At the moment on mobile you can click the three bars at the top left and then click New posts from pretty much anywhere. I do think that the lightning button would be better used to link to the new posts section though and that shouldn't be too difficult so I'll add it to the to do list.Could we make that lightning bolt symbol on mobile link directly to New Posts instead of to the What's New section? There's no easy way to get back to that new posts section on mobile when you're viewing a thread or not on the index.
Also, maybe consider making LL posts not show up in the recent replies list. Users who want to keep up with that section can either watch or check manually and the New Posts section isn't flooded with spammy posts for mods to sift through. I would also suggest doing the same for Forum Games threads as they sometimes tend to clog up that section.
I paid for an addon for this myself and have added it to the forum but later realised it doesn't include the option to exclude posts from specific forums (so forum games, mafia, etc are all included in the number). Therefore I have put this in the sidebar of the staff only section as I am concerned that making this public would just confuse people into thinking they had made enough posts. I've asked the creator for the possibility of this feature but haven't heard back. At the moment the easiest way for you to check this is use the search function, pick advanced search, put in your username, set it to from the first day of the month, and select only the forums where posts are counted. This will show you a list which you can count (and this is how we are confirming it as staff too).Can we get a post Counter for those of us trying to keep above 30 each month please?
Please let us know the theme you are talking about so we can look into this.Anything that can be done about the pinned threads, they are difficult to differentiate between them and normal threads, is there a line that can be put in or different colours for the pins that make them stand out?
