The aquarium details are back for desktop views. Still trying to get it working on mobile though if I can even do that. It may be too large if someone has all their details filled out to show on mobile devices.

I'm still having problems with no icons but I tried to log on on my laptop and it said user doesn't exist. I think I'm going crazy cause I'm sure I exist.

Same problem earlier but seems ok now. I couldn’t even respond to anything because it said I wasn’t allowed. Lol

I also see no icons at all, just small square boxes where the icons like "Bold", "Italic" etc should be.

Re-loaded browser but no change.

Using latest Chrome browser version on Win 10 pc.

What happened to Subject page; CO2, Tank Equipment, Tank Builds, Beginner etc? I click 3 bars in upper left corner and nothing there? I got here due to New Posts - but not sure difference between New Posts and Unanswered Posts? So confused. Using phone iOS Safari.

HI Mike - using Chrome on a laptop and on my android phone. I cleared cache, refreshed the page, logged out and back in again, still seeing a lot of little boxes here. Not an app user. Screenshot attached. It isn't a hindrance to site navigation, but as you can see, the edit buttons in the post and the share buttons at the bottom of the page are anyone's guess.
Love the dark layout. Never understood why so many webpages use gray-green type on white background - this is much better for us poor souls with astigmatism and light-induced migraines.

Hey mike, I’m on my apple iPhone now and the symbols are working so I think it’s my computer.

Those little boxes are for the font-awesome icons and for some reason on some devices they are causing issues. I'm looking into a work-around for them or maybe switch them out altogether.

Its pretty much garbage. The app doesn't work anymore, no new posts showing, error boxes due to I'm assuming ios default vice all platform. I tried the app on linux, win 10, and android and its garbage on all three. Due to the "family filter" I can't express my opinion in proper sailor speak. I will switch over to my software developer speak instead:

This is just like a Microsoft windows update. It moves things around and renames things uselessly. Additionally it adds features that "Might" appeal to the social media types.

The interface is broken and barely functions cross platform. Theres a lot of tsr issues. The icons I pretty much just have to guess on. Pretty sire it is an ios thing.

All in all it is unusable from the app and using the webased version is just annoying. I appreciate that it took a lot of "work". However, a rool back to the previous version would not disappoint.
Haha "Proper Sailor Speak"

Hey Mike

I have two members trying to leave trader feedback for me. Tried to follow the old instructions since the update... I couldn't figure it out.

Can no longer see which mods are online.

Love the Dark Mode.

Desktop, windows 10, Google Chrome

Thanks!

I'm waiting on the trader add-on developer to create an import so I can import our old ratings into the new trader system, then I'll re-enable it.

Mods online are under the Members>Current Visitors tab.

Ok, I made a change to the way the fonts load, can someone that was having issues with the little boxes appearing, clear cache and reload to see if they show up now?

Ravynn which style are you using? Fishlore Light, Dark or Blue? Style chooser is at bottom of screen.

Also, in chrome, if you press F12 it will load the dev console. If you go to the console tab can you screenshot what you have there? I'm looking for any errors or warnings since I can't reproduce it on my end. You can pm me the screenshot if you don't want to post it here.

Can you do ctrl+shift+R and shift+F5 and then post what the console screen looks like? I modified fonts to load from the main fishlore server isntead of the CDN.

Style chooser is at the top of the screen for me but is not labeled as such. It's just the last of 3 empty boxes and the only one of the 3 that has a mouseover window. There are no styles to choose however. Clicking the box just switches between light and dark and I see no list and no mention anywhere of a blue style.

Chromium based Edge on Windows 10 64 bit.

That's there for me too. Click it and it changes from dark to light. But at the bottom you can find "fishlore light" or "fishlore dark" and if you click that you can choose between the three. So there's one at the top and a more detailed at the bottom.

I amen't having issues with the boxes as many people seem to be having.

Content Delivery Network. Many servers. We use servers located all over the world and when you browse fishlore you are pulling site assets like css (layout settings), s, etc. from the server closest to you so the site loads faster.

I do have a couple of questions.

  1. When I go to a Discussion I've visited before, is there any way to have it take me directly to the first post since I last visited? I belong to another forum (not related to fish-keeping) that had that option, and I really liked it.
  2. On the"New Posts" page, when I click on the More link at the bottom of page 1 it adds the rest of the page, but takes me back to the top. Can that be changed so we don't have to scroll back down? Or just eliminate that More button and load the whole page right way?

1. It should be doing that already. It might be messed up with all of the updates I've been making the past couple of days with the database and caching issues. Maybe see if it starts working as expected in over the next 24 hours and if it doesn't behave let me know.

2. Not sure I follow what you are saying here. That's not how the new posts page works for me. It has page numbers and not a more button at the bottom. Can you post a link to the page you are talking about?

There's the link. I can't figure out how to post a screenshot from my phone, but it lists 10 posts, then has a button that says "View more..."

Mike,

Also, regarding my #1 above, it seems like it goes to the first unread post if I had visited the discussion since the upgrade, but not for the ones I hadn't. That issue will of course fix itself over time.

Ok, so that is the main "what's new" page and when you click the more button it just takes you to the new posts tab. Not much I can do with how that works.

The trader ratings are back in the BSTF section, but I found a bug with the new add-on and contacted the developer. If you click on the buyer or seller's name while viewing the history page it takes you to an Oops message error page. Hopefully he fixes it soon and I'll update it. But, the important part of submitting and viewing ratings works.

I'm on a Mac desktop with IOS system. I'm sorry to give you one more problem but, when I click on the "Aquarium Details" at the top of the page, I get an Oops message error page. I first tried it yesterday and again now. Don't know if it is just me (totally possible:D) or if it is still being worked on?
Thanks,
LG

I'm seeing the same thing on my desktop with Chrome and my phone with Firefox. I assume was on the list for attention, but if not I'm sure it is now.

The arrow doesn't do anything. This morning on the Wild Life posting thread there were only little squares to hover over, not the option line with the fonts, smilies, inserts etc. Just letting you know to help.

I just want to throw something out there. If it has already been said, I apologize. But two of the new reactions are "iffy" to me.

Sad and Wow. Both of which could be used negatively as a reaction to terrible advice or terrible stocking decisions or something. Even "smart" could be used in a smart alec sort of way. But especially sad and wow in my opinion.

Now...I can assure you I won't use them that way, because I am not a jerk like that. But the way people abused the "disagree" reaction years ago, I worry that some may choose to use "sad" and "wow" as the new negative reactions. They may not be labeled as negative, but I am sure they will get used that way.

Just food for thought!!

Agree. I can see people calling me "smart" if I am disagreeing with them over something. Doesn't even have to be about bad advise, even when people don't like what they hear, even if true. I don't see it happening often though. Most people here are quite respectful. I do like the idea of a sad reaction as I could never react to sad news. Maybe the new hug option could take the place for that.

I will say that I definitely miss agree. I have to like most posts now to say I agree which is kinda bland. Informative was a nice one too.

Mike I’m far from a tech guy :). But everything to me works great. So thanks! As with anything new it takes time to figure it all out. Now my only problem and I think it began before the change. Is can we get back the op marker for the thread starter. With the just colored avatars I never know who in talking to. Thanks
