Re: The Tech Report forums got a big upgrade

Any news about if we will get some form of indicator in the actual thread on posts that are unread on the light theme just as already exists on the dark team.

Actually seeing that indicator would be nice when scrolling through a thread.

We've forwarded a feature request to the author, though we can't make any promises :)

(Sorry in advance if these are already mentioned)

Is there a way to have threads I posted previously in specially marked as was the case on the previous forum?

Second issue, all the paragraph breaks I add to my posts end up removed, surely I can't be the only one getting that? Did just realize it only occurs when quoting other posts in my reply. (Using Chrome)

Dark theme has a bit of a bulge on the circle if you have posted in the thread.

For those still looking, it's at roughly 4 o'clock.

Noted. We'll see if this easily doable but we're all pretty busy now.

Assuming you're talking about the graphical post editor, it looks like we're going to disable it, as we've collected reports from multiple users about bugs with it.

Here's a handy trick:  Click on the first icon at the top left of the text editing window.  In the Canvas theme, this looks like white lines of text on a black sheet of paper.  This takes you to text mode.  Edit to your heart's content.

Oh I know, it's just that the problems are too many and too widespread to keep the editor.

Took me a while to notice that little bubble. :o

BTW, is the 3-levels nested quote tags limit still in effect?

I just tested it. It automatically removes any quotations past the third one, but will let you post it.

Dunno when it started, but I don't think we need to be so precise to show the time of day people joined the forums on... it's causing text wrapping problems.   :wink:

Minor quibble, and I'm not sure if this has been posted before or not. But the "forum notifications" button is also directly adjacent to the logout button. Maybe it's just me, but there have been a number of occasions where I've accidentally clicked to logout when checking said notifications. Maybe changing the order of the icons would be better?

I've often thought the same thing, but shrugged. Just the year would be enough, or at most the year and month. :P
