    The support forum was upgraded a little today to display support status as a small coloured icon in topic lists. A few other issues such as the non-marking of closed topics as closed have also been fixed. If you notice any issues arising from this change please drop a note here to let us know.

    I’ve noticed that the thread titles don’t change colors anymore (from the lighter “viewed” color to the darker “not viewed” color when someone posts to a thread. Makes it a little more difficult for volunteers to tell which threads have now posts in them and which do not.

    Yes, that’s been going on for awhile.

    So, green means resolved, red means active, lock means locked, starred means sticky?

    The red/green seems backwards to me. Maybe I spend too much time at traffic lights.

    That’s a change to trunk we made recently to remove the ?replies=# at the end of each topic link which allows your browser to track when the topics are updated. I’ll have to re-add that functionality as a plugin.

    @raincoaster

    That summary of the icons is correct. Hovering over them should reveal their meaning as well.
    Edit: red means “not resolved”.

    Thanks Sam.

    Replies argument is now back in the url of each topic.

    Um.
    When I use the “view your profile” link at the top of the forum to see threads I’ve replied to/participated in, several threads are missing, and sometimes the link sends me of…nowhere. Or, to the wordpress “sign up for a new blog!” page, which is rather disorienting.

    Do you have any specific examples in your profile list? I tried dozens and they all worked.

    #186691

    I’ve noticed what membracid has as well although it is quite random. I replied to a thread, hit the send post button and got a blank screen (URL was correct in address bar) then when I hit reload, I got the blog signup page with “en” entered into the blogname field.

    #186692

    It just did it again when I hit the “send post” button in this thread.

    #186693

    Any chance of notifying a moderator of porn in the forums? Speaking of an “avatar” tested on the Off-Topic section. The thread is starred at very top, item is on page 46, latest. NSFW.

    I think it will offend some people.

    @thesacredpath & membracid

    I’m seeing the same behaviour occasionally and reloading usually gets you to the right place. Looks like one of the servers in the cluster is playing up – I think this is basically unrelated to the recent code changes. We’ll try and figure it out.

    @lettershometoyou

    In the future you should tag the offending topic with the tag “modlook” and perhaps a note on it as well. (Edit: I see you did that, thanks!)

    #186695

    Ah! Modlook. Forgot I could tag that. Thanks.

    #186697

    Hi. I’m a new blogger and the time showing for when I posted my blog is wrong. How can I correct it? Please help. Thanks!

    #186698

    Even the time I posted this question is wrong. It’s 7:17 EST. Sigh!

    theparentsden, you can change your blog time through your Admin => Options page, but it is best to create your own thread for your issues, as it confused people when posts are made about something else in a thread!

    I’ve been getting those blank screens in the past few minutes when I click on a thread. Refresh clears it up.

    Question – I’ve noticed a couple threads have no icon at all. What, if anything, does that mean?

    That just means they are in the “ideas” forum which isn’t a support forum! As well, the white screens should be clearning up I’ve been told.
