Issues with the new forum format
Yep, I can see it all no problem in Firefox, just not IE at work. :(
It would be great if, on the main page, we could see how many “pages” a thread has so we can jump to a page in one click instead of needing to use two: One click to get off the index page and a second to jump to the desired page beyond the first.
Alternatively, a link directly to the first post after the last visit for the user. Cookie based something like phpbb does it. It would only need a small “new” image in the main forum page…
Agreed but don’t we get enough folks posting in threads without reading the thread first first?
True enough. :(
I can still edit. Is everyone else still having problems?
I was talking about the more advanced regulars here who want to jump directly to the end of where they were reading.
We know there will always be people who don’t read all the messages; but for those of us who do read everything, why not provide a quick way to hit the last page from the main page?
Oh, I agree with you. I’d love to see a last post link. I just think it’s going to backfire.
Maybe if we got staff to come up with “Support Forum Stud” levels or somesuch and made the links for them and the moderators…
Gotta admit though I usually reread the first post away if I haven’t yet for that day. Just to remember that the thread was about.
I see page jump links with my Firefox 126.96.36.199
On the main page I see 1 2 Next » “48 Responses to “Issues with the new forum format”
On the second one I see « Previous 1 2 48 Responses to “Issues with the new forum format
Don’t you see them too? What I do to get to the end is click the page jump link and then use ctrl “end” to take me to the last post.
He means on the main forum page. Instead of coming into the first page within the thread, he wants to arrive on the last age of the thread when he clicks on the link.
Oh! I didn’t understand him. Sorry, boles.
Yes, drmike, that’s what I mean, thanks! I hated having to click twice — instead of once — to respond to you. SMILE!
All we need is a “Pages” column on the main page where we can click numbers instead of the thread title. It could go right after “Freshness.”
drmike has reported this in another thread http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=7447&replies=20#post-49102
Just for reference, I edited Bruce’s post up there where he used li tags and replaced them with blockquote tags. In this case, that was what was causing the layout to go wacky.
I had to go back through and add in ul tags where folks had used li tags on the old layout a few times.
@ mdawaffe and Mark
We are missing the forum profile links we had previously.
We could use those links to:
(1) edit our forum profiles and updtae information in them;
(2) provide a url that our username could be linked to (or not provide one);
(3) mark favourite threads for follow-up.
The data there also included:
(3) all forum posts we initiated; and
(4) all forum posts we responded to.
I’d like to change the blog my username is linked to in the forum today but I cannot find a way to do that.
I’d really like to have these links back please.
EDIT: This request is canceled see below.
I see them at the top right of the page.

Hope this helps,
No, we’re not missing those links. In the text:
This is how your profile appears to a fellow logged in member, you may edit this information. You can also manage your favorites and subscribe to your favorites’ RSS feed.
The bold text represent the links to those pages.
Regarding: (3) forum posts we initiated and the (4) forum posts we responded to., those sections are there too… or am I missing something else? or ar you talking about something else and it’s me who’s getting confused?
Good morning devblog :)
drmike pointed out to me where to find the forum profile links at the very top of the page on the right hand side. Remarkably I didn’t “see” “View Your Profile” before even though my eyes were wide open … lol…
Thanks for fixing the tags. It was very off-putting.
How do others feel about the size of the avatar and the space dedicated to the original poster of each forum thread?
I’m feeling like it’s a bit “TOO LARGE” but maybe that’s a petty point to bring up.
