I spoke too soon.
It seems to happen when I enter a thread with lots of tweets postings and images.

I'm sorry if this was mentioned already in this thread, but my not searching for it actually ties in to my actual gripe itself. Please, PLEASE tell me there is a way to turn off this infinite scroll nonsense. Thank you.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

I've noticed when I reply to a thread, or post a new thread, the editor box is pushed all the way over to the left. I can make it taller, but I can't make it any wider.

Is this normal? I don't remember what it was like before.

It would be nice if I could make it wider. And shouldn't it be centered?

I'm using Firefox on a desktop PC.

Ah, that ties into what BobO'Link was mentioning on the last last page. So every user should have defaulted to "Full CKEditor". That's the only one optimized for the new software. You can keep the old text editor, like you have, but it has a few kinks. Tech will not be updating it, but they won't be scrapping it, either. If you want to switch editors because yours for some reason didn't switch to Full CKEditor, go here: https://forum.dvdtalk.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

Select the editor you'd like to use and click Save at the bottom.

Hm OK. And you turned off Infinite Scroll? Also, thank you for your device information on your previous post.

Played around with the various editor options. This default and only fully supported CKEditor is useless, at least on safari. You canít select groups of words to edit.

But ďStandard Editor - Extra formatting controlsĒ appears to be the only one to work well, although I havenít fully tested it.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

I'd like to see HTML embed turned back on. I know that I and others used it to display table data for leaderboards in different contests.

Examples:

https://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-tal...mpionship.html

I'm trying to find out if there's any workaround we can do, but HTML represents a large security risk.

Here's the thing with that...

When you *reply* you get stuck with that narrow edit box. If you just "Submit Reply" and then "Edit" the resulting post you get an in-line "Standard" editor that *is* the full width of the screen as it should be. So... it works in one place but not another.

Right. As I said, it isn't optimized. It will likely have irregular behavior.

We have updated the ad layout for logged in users. They, especially ads between posts, should be less intrusive, now.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

Hey guys, Kenbuzz here. Long time poster, first time visitor to this forum.

Hi.

Say, I notice that something y'all did has really borked-up the table-intensive DVDTalk NFL Playoff Pool. I could try to explain the disaster that the Pool has suddenly become, but I think it's best to experience it first-hand yourself. Here's the pool location:
https://forum.dvdtalk.com/sports-tal...-new-post.html

Here's a little sample of what -should- be interpreted HTML code, presented to the user as a table, but instead being presented as raw HTML:

<TABLE BORDER=1><tr align=center><TH align="center">Rank</TH><TH align="center">Player</TH><TH align="center">Wild Card</TH><TH align="center">Divisional</TH><TH align="center">Conference</TH><TH align="center">Super Bowl</TH><TH align="center">Points</TH><TH align="center">Actual</TH><TH align="center">Diff</TH></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b> The Cow</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>LA Rams</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>50</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>Trevor</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>Kansas City</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>50</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b> Brew Crew</b></td><td>Dallas</td><td>LA Rams</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>55</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>I Drink Molson</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>Kansas City</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>55</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>PeMo</b></td><td>LA Chargers</td><td>LA Rams</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>46</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>Quake1028</b></td><td>Philadelphia</td><td>LA Rams</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>48</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b> rabbit77</b></td><td>LA Chargers</td><td>New England</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>45</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>Jericho</b></td><td>Dallas</td><td>New Orleans</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>63</td><td>-</td><td>-</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>Cardsfan111</b></td><td>LA Chargers</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>44</td><td>40</td><td>4</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>Decker</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>43</td><td>28</td><td>15</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b>the Chief</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>45</td><td>28</td><td>17</td></tr><tr align=center><td>-</td><td><b> drc</b></td><td>Indianapolis</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>-</td><td>47</td><td>28</td><td>19</td></tr></table>

Every browser
Every thread
Going back sixteen years.


So, yeah, if there's a switch that got thrown that you might un-throw to fix this so that the above looks like a nicely formatted rectangle containing rows and cells and text rather than line after line after line of < and > and / and other giberish, that would be terrific.

Thanks!

Read up a bit ^^^ HTML was disabled because it is a security risk. They are looking into seeing if there are any workarounds.

But seriously...what is the "panic" button? I have been here forever, have zero clue what it is and have seen it mentioned here several times now.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

I'm in the same boat as kenbuzz as I usually starts the NFL weekly threads and use the HTML table formatting for the schedules. Without, it looks like crap.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

I will have to admit, my first reaction was pretty much of disgust, but after using the site for a while, I've gotten used to the differences, and it doesn't bother me so much.
A couple things I do like:
  1. The emoji browser! So much nicer than the old one
  2. The old forum used to have problems with the "show me new posts in this thread" button. It would always put me 5-10 posts before the first new one. With the forum change, I always hit the exact first new post.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

Can someone educate me on how exactly the HTML stuff went down here? I thought IBJoel said they turned HTML off here a couple weeks ago, something to do with YouTube and Twitter imbeds. He gave us a workaround for those imbeds. But even after that, the tables in our various sports and Challenge threads still worked. But then a couple days ago, something else was tweaked destroying the tables. If it was necessary for security reasons that’s fine, but it’d be nice to have a full explanation of the various things that you’ve done recently.

So I'm not an HTML pro, but basically me turning HTML off happened for a couple of forums on the day before/after the software update.
