Sorry, I thought sticky nav bars was an issue resulting in poor response time and as such I thought it might help to speed things up here. I know most people here have faster computers than mine, apparently nobody notices the lag but me.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

Not sure if this has been reported yet. Any thread I have recently (not sure when it started) posted in does not show up in the "New Posts" search results.

For example, I posted in https://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk...wolf-moon.html

And that thread's last post was 6:28am 1/21/19

My search results for New Posts do not show it:



If I go directly to the forum I posted in, then they show in the correct order.

Me three. Think it just doesn’t show up as long as your post is the last, so not too problematic.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

If you are the last poster, it will not show up in New Posts. That's new as of the updates. Before, it would still show in New Posts but not be in bold like the others. Now it appears the forum considers that thread read and doesn't list it at all in New Posts.

As soon as I hit New Posts after posting this reply; this thread will not be on the list anymore.

Edit: Adding picture. Hit New Posts right after submitting this post.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

The example I posted above (Blood Moon thread) I was not the last poster.

So what I'm seeing now, this feedback thread and a couple of others I posted in that had new replies showed up in my New Post search I just ran.

However, after going in and "reading" them, and running New Posts again, they disappear from the results
I didn't post in the Super Bowl thread, but went into it. Then ran New Posts then it disappeared from results too.
But the Futureman (Hulu) thread that is below the 'updated since last visit' line I can leave and search again and it's still there.

Seems to be if you have "read" a thread they disappear from New Posts search. Multi-page threads do not seem to disappear after going in though as far as I can tell. But they change to not highlighted/bold in the search results.

^That's the way "New Posts" is supposed to work. Think of it as "Unread Posts."

Yeah; that's why I didn't bother to post it earlier. In theory, New Posts should only show threads you haven't looked at since something was posted. I think we're all just used to the old way where New Posts really meant New Posts since your last visit, whether you've looked at them or not.

Whether or not it's the way it's "supposed" to work, it's not the way it used to behave until recently. I pretty much only use "New Posts" when visiting. I've only known it to show ALL threads with "New Posts".
Before, if I visited a thread, and do New Posts again, it would still show in search results but would not be highlighted/bold in the list.
So, perhaps it was "broken" in the past?

I just realized that "Today's Posts" seems to be behaving correctly, so I might just have to start using that more, even though it's an extra click.

Re: Jan. 3rd 2019 Upgrade Master Thread

We have a “today’s posts”? Yeah, sounds like I might want to experiment with that.

For the past 5 or so years I pretty much only use the “new posts” button to interact with the forum. Not really loving the new ways it’s working either.

Today's Posts is under Quick Links drop down. I agree concerning how it's working. Totally understand if this is the "correct" functionality but I prefer how it worked before.

Thanks! I just made that link a favorite in my toolbar. Hopefully it works, I vaguely recall trying this with ‘new posts’ years ago and it didn’t work properly.

Just typed @tre then a list popped up with multiple names and I selected yours.after that, the name looks different in the Quick Reply box. Can't take a screencap right now to show it though. This is in the full site, not mobile. Not sure if there's a difference.

I didn't try all of the editors, but the "Standard" one does not support this. The "CKEditor" does.

Yep looks like that's it.
Regular editor can use "utag" codes but you have to know the user's 5-digit number I think...

Cool. I don’t like that editor and use another for better formatting tools, but good to know.

Also, from the User CP settings< it looks like we’re possibly getting post likes.
