Yes, I see the little red box, it is very nice smile.gif  I am wondering, though, if-- say a thread I posted in three months ago, suddenly gets  "bumped" back up with a new post.  Naturally I'm not going to be wading through  a list of everything I've ever posted in, every day, looking for red boxes.  But right now the threads are arranged in the order in which I posted in them, not in the order of which anyone else has posted in them.... does that make sense?  I feel like I'm doing a poor job explaining this.

've tried to do this already multiple times, and the change image window pops up and it freezes my computer.  I just also tried to respond to this and it froze up my computer.  My laptop is really hating these changes.  Not sure, the avatar is a small issue, but the freezing issue is making me not want to come on here.  Sorry greensad.gif sad but true.

Forgive me if you've already done this, but could you please post which browser and operating system you are using so we can help you resolve this?

As you can see, I'm still typing above the quote. I didn't even edit it this time but the cursor will not go below the box. It will go inside the box.

This sounds like a bug that's found with the rich text editor and Firefox.  Can you tell us what browser you're using? We are expecting that there will be a release of a new editor option that sounds much more basic and should resolve the cursor isue.

 

And smilies are being worked on as I type!


I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

I am having the same issue about only being able to type on top of the quote as well and I am using Firefox version 3.6.12 I have been c&p the quote back on top after I type in my reply to get past it.

When I click on Subscriptions, the page I see doesn't list threads in the order in which I posted in them - it shows ones with the most recent activity on top.  A couple of fairly old threads had new posts yesterday, and they moved up near the top.  So maybe you're just assuming the order doesn't change because it hasn't happened yet, but it really will when old threads get new posts.  Or maybe the "news feed" you're talking about is different from the page where I've been viewing my subscribed threads.

Mine doesn't put the ones with the most recent activity on top; the dates of the last post are all out of order, like a thread with the last reply being made on 11/5 is above one with a reply from 11/8.

I appreciate that this had to be done for some reason. But the light background is so hard to read and font is tiny, the whole layout is so confusing and the individual posts take up half my screen. And those humongous avatars are incredibly distracting - it's painful to be here now, it really is. I don't know if I'll be back.

AHHHH!  I found it!  I'm working on Opera and I had my "speed dial" link set to my User CP, which now brings me to my profile.  And there it's the "News Feed" that says Recent Activity.  But up by my name in the upper right-hand corner there is the "Subscribed" button that I click that shows what my User CP used to show.  Okay, all good now orngbiggrin.gif  Thanks so much!

 

 

To those frustrated and feeling like they don't want to come back... I'd say wait a week or so.  It seems like they are working on the glitches/complaints.

For me it is working the way you want it when I click on the Subscriptions link in the upper right corner of the screen. It bumps up recently replied to posts, just like in the old User CP. I am set to have updates to site only (no email subscriptions) so I don't know if that makes a difference.

I did post it before but that's back a few pages, I am using an Acer with Vista(ugh) and firefox.  When I pulled up the window to change my avatar, it will bring up the window, then freeze my computer.  I can see the browse, url, etc, but when I attempt to browse through my pics it freezes and then I have to do task manager and it says "not responding".  It's happened every time I've tried to change the pic.

 

Oh and thanks to Jessica S for changing my avatar smile.gif

I have seen a few comments about not liking the avatar size... and wanted to say I like it, it is large enough to see what each thing is now. (I'm on a desktop with an 18" widescreen monitor and still had a tough time seeing avatars before.) Just my in case that was something you were considering altering.

I haven't made it through the entire thread yet, but I have the answer to 2 questions. 

 

I notice a link at the top and bottom of each page called  View First Unread which will take you to the first unread post in a thread.

 

I discovered how to close the smilie box.  This might only work for Windows, but you hold down CTRL and scroll to zoom out and you'll find the cancel button.  That will also allow you to see a few more smilies, if you have good eyes. To fix your screen, hold down CTRL and 0. 

 

LOL  I hope they fix this soon because I can't fine the smilies I want and I don't have any of the codes memorized.

You know, I have noticed something but not sure if it is suposed to be that way.

 

When I am in a forum, let's say TAO forum, and I scroll towards the bottom of the page, if I click on a thread, then hit the back button, I am always redirected to the top of the page, not back to where I was.  I don't know if anyone has mentioned this in this thread, but it is quite annoying.

 

I use the "Back" button a LOT.  It is how I keep track of where I am.  But with the site bumping me up to the top each time, I can't keep up with where I am.

 

Plus, there is the added thing that it does not mark the threads I check out as "read" until I hit the refresh button.  So, unless I continuously hit the refresh button I can keep going back to the same page and seeing the same thing, over and over again.

 

 

I am not sure if I am making this clear, because it is just "minor" things, I guess, but they are annoying when I am surfing around the site.

 

 

 

So, if I go to the TAO Forum and then scroll down to the middle of the page, then I click on a thread there, read the thread, post on the thread, then hit the back button, the TAO page looks exactly the same as it did before I clicked.  I will not only be back at the very top of the TAO page, but if I look down the page to find the thread I just posted on it does not show that I have posted on that thread, and I will still show the "Go to first post" button on the left indicating that I have never been there.

 

I can check out every post on the page, followed by hitting the back button, and by looking at the TAO page, never know I looked at even one thread unless I hit the refresh button (or go forward to another page and then go "forward" to the TAO page again).  It is very confusing.

 

Please say they are going to fix that?

 

 

In the old forums the "clicked" links changed colors and when you hit "Back" it took you back exaclty where you were before you clicked (so if you were at the bottom, you found yourself at the bottom once you went "Back").


Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

i feel it is only fair that you either give me the option to not see them, or give me the option to get my money back, and i will respectfully leave the community.

 

i do not feel this is an unreasonable request. i do understand that it may not be simple, but i do feel it is a valid complaint that deserves an answer. again, if an answer has been made, and i didnt find it in the 89 posts to this thread since i last viewed it (sort of nice to know that, i will admit!), i apologize. and if someone could point me in the right direction....... thanks!

 

jessicaS, i hope your kids get better fast!

 

Agreed. I totally understand that this is probably not at the top of your to-do list, but I REALLY hope we are given the option to hide the reviews and wish lists completely. Someone up-thread (sorry, I'm too lazy to go back and quote!) said that they aren't really ads because no money is exchanged... but they basically serve the same purpose, no? They're to encourage you to buy something. I guess I am old-fashioned, but I don't want all that commercial stuff on the forums. I totally get that MDC needs to support itself, but my understanding was that by opting to pay for an ad-free subscription we were helping balance that need for income. I certainly agree that the reviews will be useful to people who *are* wanting to buy stuff, but couldn't they just be something that you *choose* to access? Or at least something that could be disabled by supporting members?

 

Thank you very much to the mods for all the hard work orngbiggrin.gif

Why are all the issues merged in one thread?  I saw someone say it was easier for them to keep up with, but I do not believe it is easier for the user that just wants to know why the smileys don't work or how to make a sig or find subscribed threads....

 

I see that I can post smileys in the text by typing in a code I remember tiphat.gif  but in my sig, that is not working.  Also, when I call up the smileys for selection I have the same issue that I can only see some, and no scroll bar appears.  I have not even gotten around to trying to read threads... but I do like that I can have an avatar now. 

 

Please seriously consider allowing a thread per issue while we all figure this system out, I am sure it would be easier to read a thread called, "My signature doesn't work" if you are trying to get a working sig, than to have to search this thread or read a lot of posts....

I had this happen, too!

I haven't read past this page to see if you got it resolved, but I wanted to make sure you knew it wasn't you... I'm using firefox. I couldn't see the purple 'edit' option, either. What I thing was that, despite appearing to be fully loaded, the site wasn't. I refreshed a bunch and then, got frustrated and walked away for a few mins- when I came back the purple edit text was there.

 

ETA (above the quote box bc I also can't type below...) I saw you got it worked out. So, I guess just count my vote that this really happened to me as well.

Speaking of siggies- Am I right to assume RIP colors in siggy text? Really? greensad.gif I loved people's rainbow diy tickers!)

One major issue I'm having that I didn't see addressed- the reply box is SOOO fussy. Like, it will be there and disappear (the whole section) then come back. Or, there's no cursor, or the cursor's in the wrong place. I tried earlier to go back up to a previous sentence by clicking in it and the whole reply just sort of fell apart when I pushed enter to make a new paragraph. (In fact, as I type right now, it won't let me make paragraphs- I push enter, nothing happens. ???) I've tried full page editor and run into the same issues. GAH!

The smile thing is supposed to be fixed by Monday at least the part where you can see all the smilies box has all the smilies. Not sure about the siggies since I and several others are having the same issue.

I see that I can post smileys in the text by typing in a code I remember tiphat.gif  but in my sig, that is not working.  Also, when I call up the smileys for selection I have the same issue that I can only see some, and no scroll bar appears.  I have not even gotten around to trying to read threads... but I do like that I can have an avatar now. 

 

Please seriously consider allowing a thread per issue while we all figure this system out, I am sure it would be easier to read a thread called, "My signature doesn't work" if you are trying to get a working sig, than to have to search this thread or read a lot of posts....

I am using OS X 10.6.4 and FF 3.6.12 and have only had the issue of being able to not type below a quoted box and only in some instances then... My reply box seems very stable  otherwise lol.gif


This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

No, my list was gone.  I just started over.  It's OK, don't worry about it.
