Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

Does Mobile version not have "search this thread" or "thread tools"?

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

Is there any way to get the "forum jump" at the top of the page as well as the bottom? I hate having to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to a different forum. I hate the drop down at the top because I have to remember what category each forum is in.

Just some feedback: I really dislike the "infinite scroll".

I second that request.

While not a full listing, if you're just trying to go back, the breadcrumbs feature is similar:

Yes, although not technically related to the forum software update, just a coincidence that I turned it off around the same time.

Unfortunately no, but as more and more people browse primarily on their mobile devices, we're always trying to add functionality and it could be added in the future.

Yes, but then you always need to be logged in for that to work. I'll mention my previous suggestion one more time: reverse the setting so infinite scroll needs switched on, not switched off. Looking at it from another POV, there have been enough WFT responses here from regular users, do you want to chance alienating casual visitors?

Thank you for the response. Now, in terms of creating a table in a thread, can we do that without HTML? Is there a workaround that someone knows in order to create one?

No one addressed this in my previous post, but has the option to increase font size been taken away?

I don't see it anywhere on the reply panel.

You mean in forum replies? I still see a font size selector, but remember that there are like 5 different editors now, only one fully supported, but they all work to some degree. Choose your editor in options.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

So I noticed something interesting today on Chrome (don't see it on firefox). If you right click in the reply box, there's an emoji & symbols options, which looks like this:


If you select one of these symbols, it looks like it's gonna work ... but then when you post the reply, all the symbols you took just show up as black boxes. Anyway we can get this functionality to work?

It's a Chrome thing. It was probably there before and you didn't notice it till now.

I never noticed it before either, but I see it on every textbox on every site now.

I see the Wikis that existed prior, but the only option is to print them.

I do not see any options to edit, or create a new one.

Apologies if this has been covered already, but is there a reason we can't use [img] [ /img] or [url=____ ]Title of Link[ /url] tags anymore.
