Nice to hear that. I'm looking forward to see new skins.
Just noticed previous post list day posted not the date posted. Confusing. Can this be changed? TY LWM.
How do I permanently be removed from the watch list and from receiving notifications about this thread- or any thread at Wilder's for that matter ?
Even though I uncheck 'watch this thread' and 'and receive email notifications', I continue to get those notifications and when I return to my account/'watched threads' this is once again listed as a watched thread. Unchecking and logging out doesn't solve the problem either.
Somehow, something is being left undone so can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong ?
I didn't have this problem prior to the migration. I simply placed a check mark next to the forum(s) I no longer wished to follow, then selected 'delete subscription' from the drop down menu, and that was that.
Maybe you additionally have to delete the cookies?
I am liking this forum better day by day.
+1. I agree with you 100%. After I got used to it, it's been a real pleasure to read and post on new forum.
+2 Yes the vB style is very nice indeed! But I still miss the quote button I don't like writing it manually each time. And I am also not a fan of the little popup that "loads" if the cursor stays on a thread for 0.2 sec.
SweX just in case you missed it, you can quote a post by pressing the 'reply' button bottom right of the post you want to quote.
I don't know, I use the default one
Yes that works fine I just did it with this post. But if I copy and paste in text from another thread, or post an article I can't do it that way afaik.
And what happened with this post here I don't know: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/windows-8-1-update-–-important-refinements-to-the-windows-experience.362193/page-2#post-2359995
I even tried to edit the post so the bold part would show up in the same quote as the rest of the text, but after clicking "save changes" it made no difference and the two quotes was still there.
The quote button appears on the Insert dropdown menu:
Quoting from another thread is relatively easy (at least surely you need not write it manually ).
Here I quote a post published by you in the thread with the poll about the new styles:
Let's assume you want to quote in thread A (e.g. this one here) something from thread B (e.g. the thread with the poll):
- You open both threads in separated windows of your browser
- In thread B you click on the button "Reply" within the post you want to quote.
- Then you copy the whole line which says QUOTE .... (together with all square brackets)
- You paste this line in thread A (within the draft of your new post)
And with articles it works even easier:
- Copy the lines of an article you want to quote
- In the formatting bar of your draft you click on the symbol for "Insert":
and choose "Quote" from the dropdown menu.
---> The words QUOTE ...... /QUOTE appear. [Edit: Rmus showed it too in the meantime. ]
- Paste your text between them.
My solution is to keep the mouse cursor on the left side margin until I'm ready to open a thread. Then a quick move over the thread title and a click takes just .01 sec. and no pop up appears!
On the other hand, the pop up is useful if I want to see what a new thread is about, w/o opening the thread.
Mobile view on here
It's been stated that one of the reasons for the move to XF from vB was to attract more mobile viewers/members. I don't have a smart phone to check, but with FF on a PC this is how it looks to me.
So it "seems" that mobile viewers get the Full Width to contend with, when they move from the main page to the forums. Which means they only "possibly" benefit on the main page ?
In which case this
could be formatted along the top or bottom, as before ?
Based on the above, i don't see how Any benefit in viewing is accorded to mobile users ?
None of that appears on a real mobile device. Whatever that simulation is, it is not accurate.
The "stats" area does move to the bottom on a mobile device. There is no sidebar.
That will look different on a mobile device because of the coding to identify it as a mobile device. I know this from my brother, who is a software programmer and web page designer.
As far as "wasted" space as seen on your PC, as I mentioned in an earlier post, if you want, you can force that Stats column to the bottom by Zooming in your browser.
It's not a sim as such, just how my PC sees it. I was presuming that mobiles see the same. Now i realise that there must be some code that mobiles pick up on that browsers on PC's don't, that changes the view. Thanx for the clarification.
Basically, a responsive design does include code that determines the size (and other things) of the device it is displaying on. It adjusts how it displays to accommodate the device.
Here are some sample screen shots (from an iPod) I posted when I announced this:
Hi, Yeah i now realise about the moby code, Thanx. Zooming in does indeed move the sidebar, but it involves X4 zoom on my FF, which looks TOO big !
Tip: when posting, PureText (free) is handy for easily removing rich formatting from text that you copied and pasted.
How do you know if another member is online? It used to be so simple.
I mean, other than the right side panel on the main forum page.
(If this has been asked and answered already, kindly point me in that direction.)
And how to insert a link, in other words, how to make a word a hyperlink.
Home page, right hand side, Members Online Now box. There's no other way.
I forgot that there's a "Remove Formatting" button in the editor.
Separate names with a comma.
