Can the pinned threads be shrunk any?  They take up a heck of a lot of real estate at the top of the forums....

 

I agree, but don't think I can reduce the size. They took up the same amount of real state on old board, but were separated from other Topics so were less visually 'in your face'.

It has been staring us in the face.....If you sort by unread content, it will return a list of all threads that are new or have been added to since you last read them.  To the left of the thread title

Seriously...after 14 years at this...allow some Members to cover there tracks when things get sketchy?, or go delete entire Replies rendering topics out of context when they get pissed off...usually a

I miss having the poster's location shown under their profile name...it added a lot of "regional" perspective to threads...seems now you would have to check out each profile to do so unless there is a

Testing a new Reply Preview function that was included in an Upgrade performed yesterday and I just added.  The magnify icon on far right of toolbar above Post/Reply Field.

 

OK, it lets you see what your list will look like on Desktop, Tablet or phone. That's cool, but it doesn't et you edit it in that Preview window. You X out and make needed edits before clicking Submit Reply.

 

This new Preview tool doesn't seem to show up when making a new Topic, at least it doesn't show up in the abbreviated Toolbox on this iPad. Ill try phone and iMac later.

OK - Quick question.  I like how you can search for any new topics that you have missed since you last arrival BUT the multiple page threads don't give the option of clicking on the last page. suggestions? work around?

I was wondering something similar myself - How can I easily get to where I was last reading the thread?

 

For a multipage thread you have to first go to the thread and then click the link to the last page. It would be convenient to brought to where you last left off reading. 

It has been staring us in the face.....If you sort by unread content, it will return a list of all threads that are new or have been added to since you last read them.  To the left of the thread title there is either a circle (if you haven't posted in the thread) or a star (if you have posted in the thread).  If you click on the circle or star, it will take you to your first unread post.

Good catch browndrake. This board needs a printed or PDF Users Guide for Admins, Mods and Members! There are so many features that aren't even covered in my Administration documentation.

 

I have only scratched the surface myself.

 

Another feature is at the end of the Category bands is an arrow. Click it and you can make entire Categories with Forums disappear, until you reclick the arrow. So, if you rarely view a certain Category you can make it unviewable so scrolling the Main Board page is quicker etc. Just remember to check those hidden Categories/Forums every once in a while so you don't miss anything.
