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.

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

Ill pretend I know what CDN is :)
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

I'm not Mike, obviously, but I found where it is now. Look up to the top right of the OP's posts. Instead of saying OP it now says thread starter.

I miss the "winner icon" it was a great way to show the post or information was right on. Personally I find the love eye's on a smiley sort of childish, would rather just see a heart symbol.

Can you share a screen shot?? I found this little blue circle on myself in my own thread. So I assume the blue circle is meaning I started the thread. BUT that circle only shows up in the blue format. I don't see it on the dark or light formats. And I don't see the words "thread starter" anywhere. Mobile or desktop.

Here is the scoop guys...

"Thread starter" ONLY shows up in DEFAULT STYLE. and ONLY when using the desktop site.

The blue circle indicating thread starter (in the screenshot I posted) only shows up in BLUE mode.

So if you are accessing the site on your mobile phone (not the app) you can't see who started the thread unless in blue mode. And you only see it in default style when viewing in desktop mode. I just tested every viewing option to confirm.

So at this point in time....if you are viewing the website on your mobile phone web browser (again not the app) you can only see who the OP is by having it in blue mode.

Ooh I think i'm gonna like the dark mode. Easy on the eyes. I miss all the rating options though like 'agree', 'creative', that was a fun feature here, but I guess a trivial one.

What I also miss is the OP banner in the avatar of the person who made the thread using mobile phone Chome. I have to go back often to see who started the thread and who to respond to.

I am not sure the blue circle indicates thread starter. Before the upgrade it actually said "OP" over there on our avatars. Now it says "Thread Starter" and it is now on the right side of the colored bar at the top of each post.

Well...the blue circle is not by my name in this thread. But it is by my name in my thread. So I assume it had to do with me being the OP in that thread. Maybe not?
