Ugly, not better. Harder to use, not better. Like most of the other sites around, not better. Man I hope Bob doesn’t do this to his site.
I know how to do it, I just don't want to drill down into the menu in order too. Less clicks = less time for me to get to new content. More clicks = seeing more of the ads and is annoying.Navigating The Site
Near the upper right-hand corner of the community, you will see navigation icons.
The first icon is for what’s new on the site.
Clicking on it, by default, will take you to new unread posts. On that page, you can click on additional tabs as well, such as Popular, if you prefer to view active topics.
Clicking the list icon next to “NEW” will bring you to the full forum listing.
You can also navigate by clicking the 3 vertical dots.
Clicking on your avatar will give you a drop-down menu for all things related to your account.
How To Find New Postsaweful, doesn't show the most recent post under each subforum like it used to, do you really think users are going to click on individual subforums ten times yo see what's new?
Love it!During your transition to the new platform, I will be here to help with any questions, help with navigation or how to do things, and listen to your feedback, so please don't hesitate to holler at me. I want to help. You can also check out our FAQs.
I do want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Cricket. When I was born, my father told his friends I was the ugliest baby he had ever seen and that I sounded just like a cricket (I was born with the hiccups.), so yes, I have been Cricket for a very long time now. I live just outside of San Antonio, Texas. I spend most of my free time outdoors and exploring the back roads. During late autumn, when it starts to cool down, I disappear from the world for a bit for camping trips and hiking.
Please don't be afraid to explore and test out things to see how they work on the site.
Although you can certainly use the "insert image" icon to upload an image to your post, you can also drag and drop it to the text editor or even copy/paste it into there!
You can easily share videos by adding the URL directly into the text editor!
Gif links from sites like giphy.com will display automatically by adding the gif URL directly in the text editor. Try it!
I am a huge fan of the dark mode for the community. What is your favorite feature?
The new forum software is still a work in progress.
We will be seeing regular updates, which are primarily fueled by community feedback. While that doesn't mean we can action every request, we will actively listen to the feedback and share it with the developers. We ask you to keep any questions, thoughts, or feedback about the new forum software in the Community Feedback thread to help us keep all the information together, so we don't miss anything.
There is still some work going on behind the scene, so you may notice some changes as we work.
I have worked with our community support team for seven+ years. I have worked with forums for closer to two decades. So I won't always know the answers to your questions, but I can find someone who does, as needed.
- It can take 24-48 hours for the site to finish indexing, so it may take a bit for search results to return accurate results, including showing all your threads/posts under your profile.
- We will continue to clean up the order of the sections on the full forum listings page, so you might see some stuff move around.
- We are reviewing permissions and special permission sections so let us know if you notice any issues that you would like us to look into.
