I really hadn't thought of it as anything other than that. Just wanted to make sure the point I was making didn't get lost. It STILL seems much like the old board, which was always fine with me. I've yet to see it simply not work as others have been saying, which is really something seeing as how I have some very unreliable DSL that doesn't let me watch YouTube straight through unless the video is real short. There's not much of anything that works as well as here. Helps to not have Flash, eh?

Actually - my Bad - sort of...
Yeah, so.. knightMB did not have the foresight in 2007 to enable that kind of functionality ( maybe it didn't even exist back then..? ), and god knows how many gazillion references there are to this URL format we've had forever..
That's awesome to hear. Stored 301 redirects were probably to blame.

The only way to retain your login status is to change these bookmarks to https:// ( certain browsers consider http:// and https:// to be separate sites and lose cookies if you switch back/forth. )
No, it took you to the first post.
A couple people griped about this, so i looked into it.wturber wrote: ↑Nov 29, 2017 1:52 pmMy request is simple. So simple that I suspect it might be available as an option. On the old board, there was a "my posts" text link in one of the headers. Now I have to use the Quick Links pull-down menu. Just about everthing that is on the Quick Links menu could be spread across that same empty bar where the Quick Links menu link sits. Visually that would be more cluttered, but it would be functionally simpler. But frankly, I really would just like to have direct access to "my links."
I don't see what you are seeing at all, but i have a 1920 x 1080 28" screen. When i zoom in or zoom out, things just scale in proportion.amberwolf wrote: ↑Nov 29, 2017 2:23 pmThat is part of the problem I have--it shouldn't be like that--the controls should always be in the same place, and always the same size (possibly larger on mobile devices because they have to be operated by fingers, but that's useless and problematic on desktops (99.99999999% of them don't have touchscreens)). And it shouldn't take stuff off the screen as browser font size is adjusted--sometimes the point of me trying to adjust it was to read stuff it doesn't show after I do it.
Are those phpbb forums? if so, send me a few examples of that kind of functionality in action and i'll look into it.
I don't see this. Where is it?
You'll see it in the upper left in the board index, or in a category view.
Not really, I've seen in forums like this, I don't remember the name of the platform.
I appreciate you taking the time to do this. Thanks!neptronix wrote: ↑Nov 30, 2017 5:04 am

I couldn't just add a link next to quick links, because in mobile mode, there's no space for it. On smaller screens, the quick links cannot fit in the small horizontal space.
What i ended up doing is putting a 'view your posts' link to the left of the 'mark forums read' link, like the old system.
This is not visible everywhere, but it fits in most places.
Works fine except in the not often occurring case when merging a separately posted topic into a larger topic whereupon the separately posted topic's Subject: field was lost.
Not in ProSilver theme.neptronix wrote: ↑Nov 30, 2017 10:03 amYou'll see it in the upper left in the board index, or in a category view.

In a forum view, it's on the right.
The one place it's not visible is in the individual posts. Although... i might be able to jam it in by shuffling the theme around.
This theme just doesn't always have a consistent place for the link to go.
Hm, those seem like pretty minor nags. I know that having the title not always there does look rather weird ( given that we're used to that being there)... however, it really declutters the overall view of the post.mark5 wrote: ↑Nov 30, 2017 1:27 pmWorks fine except in the not often occurring case when merging a separately posted topic into a larger topic whereupon the separately posted topic's Subject: field was lost.
Example: Safe lipos incoming! by helpfulguy was merged into Thread for new battery breakthrough PR releases.
Also, because the post's title isn't there any more, can no longer easily get its url by hovering cursor over its title and right-click selecting "Copy link location." Have to hit the "i" get info button and access it in there.
Just commenting about it and not at all a complaint. Overall, the new way is better.
