I do miss the little asterisk next to the threads I posted in.

Adjusting to the bold red color
It's still there on mine.

How do I turn off the blinking red number between "Notifications" and "Private Messages". Mine was blinking 330, then 325, now it's 320. I tried marking everything as read, yet it is still blinking? I'm not sure if this is referencing a number of notifications or a number of private messages. But it definitely is distracting.
Click the "mark forums read" then refresh the screen. This clears it for me.

Also, the “Forum Rules” link is a dead link.
I'm working on the dead link to pages as well as the "report posts" problem.

When logging in on IPad I get website not secure. Is this something to be concerned with?

I don't know why you are getting that warning. The new SSL has been in place for several days.

Mark Forums as Read doesn't stick. Every time I come back, all the titles are glaring red, and I have to reset them.
It seemed to be working for me, so I tested it by marking all forums read, logging out, then logging back in. All thread titles were black.

This new format does not go full screen on my PC when the full screen button is clicked. Stays the same - reduced screen. (Firefox) Also do see any "My Board" link.
It goes full screen on mine when I log in. Otherwise, it's about 900 pixels. (I didn't know there was a full screen button! :oops: ) It may be this style is causing the problem. I'll be changing the default back to prosilver Monday morning.

Is anyone else having the same problem?

Did you ditch bread crumbs on purpose? Is it just me? From this page I have no option to return to the home page short of typing the url again. Not even the sight logo links back home.
The breadcrumbs extension for this version didn't work well, so I'm trying to find another. I don't like the fact the logo is not a link either. That's just on this style, so when I change the default back to prosilver, the logo will be a link. Also, the Board Index just below the logo/header is a link to the main page.

Re: New Forum Features

I just added an optional style some folks may like. I'm not going to change the default from prosilver permanently, but I have set it to the new style for two or three days so everyone will see it. Each Member can select the style they prefer, but only after I reset the default style. For now, the new style overrides individual member settings.

To change the style:
1. Click the down arrow next to your name.
2. Select User Control Panel.
3 From the tabs across the top, select Board Preferences;
4. From the My board style, select SE Gamer: Light.

Charles,
I do not know if it is my browser on my phone or the forum aoftware but I am unable to use the quote or bold functions. I select the text and when I click on the function the highlight indicating the selected text disappears but the function is not activated.

Otherwise, the other improvements are welcomed.
I just tested both the bold and italic functions in the Test forum and they are working. I'm using Firefox on a desk top. I almost never use my phone for the Internet, but I'll try that later.

Re: New Forum Features

The red-lettered thread titles should be helpful, but unfortunately, everyone starts out with all titles being red. (You must be logged in for this feature to work.) I spent a lot of time last night opening every thread and toggling through every page in order to "turn off" the red titles. I just noticed the switch to mark all forums as being read. It's just under the date and time you last logged in (right side of page). That would have saved a lot of time!

I'm not sure, but I believe the titles will remain red for multiple visits as long as you have not visited the page(s) with new posts. If I'm correct, this is helpful since the "New Posts" filter clears every time you log out.

New Forum Features

You have probably seen some of the new features on the Forum, but others are easy to miss. Some of the new features are:

1. Active topics section. This may or may not stay.
2. Each post in a thread is numbered.
3. Red thread titles when new posts are present (since your last visit).
4. Jump-to-last-post arrow next to member's name.
5. Link to each Member's posts in a thread.
6. Blinking red number for PMs and Notifications.
7. Forum chat (Not yet tested and probably will be used on special occasions).
8. News scroll (used sporadically).

I hope Members find these new features useful.

Chas.
