FORUM UPGRADE ISSUES

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

LDUBS wrote: 02 Jun 2019, 11:45 I kind of miss that there is no longer a preview of the last post from a forum's topics list page. Before, if I hovered over the "go to last post" button on the far right column of the topic list, a preview of the last post would show. Now it just says "go to last post".
Let me check if that is a setting somewhere.

Jim, not that big a deal if it is a lot of work. New format makes "unread posts" stand out pretty well anyway.

Thanks for checking.

Hmmmm I may be wrong on this, but, under the old system, I thought that ....after I received an email notification of a post that I am involved in, that when I clicked on the LINK, that the system opened up on the newest addition to the thread.

I think, on the new system, it opens up at the TOP (oldest) post in the thread, then you have to move down to the newest post.

Am I crazy, or is there a setting that I have incorrect?

ADDED: I may have "fixed" it by changing my Display Options to Descending. We shall see.

Looks like the latest update to the tapatalk app really made things more responsive, at least to me.

I am glad we are moving in the right direction.

The new upgraded forum is working well for me. I like the look too. I opted for the Aero style and selected a color. Not sure what the color is but it looks good to me.

My only complaint is lack of an auto-correct feature to make all of my posts sound brilliant! LOL

Anyway, I know this was a lot of work. It is much appreciated.

Lack of the auto-correct feature.

Hmmm, I get auto-correct on mine, but I have Grammarly on my Chromebook. Free and I think pretty good. Every now and then it suggests stupid things...like BASSES instead of BASS, but most of the time it fixes my mistakes just fine. I have the FREE version. rich

p.s. Oh, you sound brilliant without auto-correct....sometimes.

Thanks Rich. I have the spell & grammar checks. I agree. The spell check drives me nuts sometimes.

No I don't know, it's not any smarter than a 4 way stop sign, or speed bumps where a speed limit is posted.

>>SNIP<<

Tinboats will probably never need to have the message, but it should be there imo. At the very least to protect Tinboats from fines, but also because ethically all companies should inform users about their data polices.
Gads, I know this may smack of political issues, but it's more about silliness and meekly compliance with laws for the sake of being "safe"

"Should be there?" fines? across international borders? REALLY??? Tell me how that happens. U.S. websites sued by users from outside the U.S? Where? how? Voluntary compliance with laws of another country or countries? I can't disagree more wholeheartedly.

Why not throw out the whole set of Constitutional rights we have because some other country objects to some... like our first and second amendments?

Users go to a foreign site at their own risk, that is unless the New World Order has happened and I was asleep when it came about.

When I go to a foreign website that has the cookie warning, I leave. And BTW, I have never agreed to one, here or elsewhere, why? Because agreeing simply gives the site owner the ability to change their conditions without giving users to opt opt.
