New Forum Features

Post by kgschlosser » Mon Sep 25, 2017 5:07 pm

As we all explore the new forum software I am sure we are coming across cool new things. I would like to dedicate this topic to letting others know about these new features.

little gray square with an arrow pointing to the upper right after the username in the last post column on the right side of the screen. this is a button you can click on and it will bring you to the last post in that topic.

I do not know if this was something that was there before. i never really paid attention. but if you are in a topic to the left of the authors name of a post you will see a little page.. this is a link for that specific forum posting. you can right click it and click on copy so if you want to paste that link to someone so they know specifically what post to look at this is the way to go about it.

There is now a Home link. it is located right before the Board Index. The Home link brings you back to the EventGhost.net webpage

I fixed the ads for the mobile version so it should be sizing properly (meaning no horizontal scrolling).

hey.... I know the new site doesn't work right. that's why it's not on the production domain yet. I thought you were talking about the mobile version of the forum. that is the one that I wanted to know if it came out properly.

and what is happening with the test site is because I am pulling the html code from github and dropping it in place almost unchanged. and that code is not responsive (dynamically changing based on browser and browser size) I have to change that so it will work properly.

Not a really big deal - but I've noticed that when you are lets say the news forum:

Home < Board index < EventGhost News

When you press home, you get to the front-page of EG. On the old forum I think Board Index was where home is now. It's just a habit but I press that home button x10 times per visit and must find my way back to the forums from the front-page.

I like that the logo now redirects you to the front-page (don't think it did on the old forums) but would love to remove that home also redirects you.

Might just be me of course and as I said, it's just and old habit that I can get rid of soon i hope.

no you are correct. It is going to take a bit to get used to it. I sent you a PM and it will make sense why that is there in that PM.
