I had this same problem before the upgrade. However, if I removed the code I had pasted and then typed it in manually, it still didn't work. Instant code didn't work. I'm not sure what the deal is. It might be a function of the length of the post.

Do ANY of you use threaded mode? It seems to me that it is easy to tell who is responding to who in threaded mode, but nearly impossible in flat mode. Am I correct, or are you guys complaining about something else altogether?

I'm pretty sure they're talking about threaded mode.

I find it ridiculously easy to follow the conversations in flat mode. The one time in 5000 or so I'm confused, there's the little link to help me.

As I posted in Dcifr's post, it seems that the posting screen "times out" after a while. It didn't seem to do this in the previous version. If you take too long typing up a post, the system times out and refuses to post it.

I recieved this PM today...

Besides the problems with search etc that have been noted, I may have just found another one. When I click on the top item in a thread (in threaded mode if that matters) the screen changes to a post in that thread rather randomly. It is almost always NOT the OP which is the one i clicked on.

I have not heard anybody else complain about this. It could be because I am using Firefox and not IE. They are not always identical.

Just thought I should pass this on. The new "upgrade" so far needs a lot of help.

Yea it's easy to tell, but it's incorrect, as is evident from the post I made. It appears to be one thing, but then when I click to read it changes, as I pointed out in my above posted.

We were all talking about threaded mode.

I believe that I have found and fixed the bug that was making the display inconsistent. Somebody please check and confirm.

I'm working on the expiring form problem but that may take a while. What else, specifically, should I be spending time on?

Chuck

1) A majority of people miss unread posts being bolded in threaded mode. Now they are all the same color, and the only indicator for read/unread is the little icon to the left of each post.

2) The forum doesn't seem to be tracking 'unread' posts correctly. Threads started today, which I have not read, list only one or two of the posts as being unread.
This was a small issue before the upgrade, but now it is worse.

EDIT- Oddly enough, this issue doesn't seem to be as bad today, but it's still something you should look into if you haven't made any related modifications in the last couple of days.

3) The threaded mode ordering should be changed to what is was before the upgrade so long as it won't bring back the anomaly of posts shifting order after selecting them (the issue JBB pointed out so well).

the secondary column of thread icons seems to make no sense really. particularly i guess the problem is the silly folder icons. if you could just make it so that every time when a folder shows up, no graphic shows up instead, that'd be hot as a start. either that, or have the folders showing up mean something.
