Sorry I posted my input in TAO, but I don't like the new format. I miss the old format....

I love it!  It's much easier to navigate and find exactly what I need.  And I love the "thumbs up" button and ability to tag. orngbiggrin.gif

Am I stuck with the purple and white background or can I change it to something different, (like tan), like before?

 

The white color plus the overall busy-ness of the new forums makes it almost impossible for this migraine prone mama to stay on here for long.

How do you link a URL to a Smiley? Like linking our charts on the TTC forum, for instance? Also, how do we actually use a smiley? Since when the box pops up, I can only see some of them and there is no way to scroll down for more.

 

 

 

 

ETA: Nevermind, figured out the siggy part of my question... still trying to figure out the smileys.

I'm sure this has been mentioned, but I can't find my "User CP" or where do I find the posted that have new posts that I'm subscribed to?  I'm sure I'm just missing it.  I found where I can look at my subscribed threads, but that's a bunch of them. 

 

Any hints?

 

I know with changes it's easy to say we don't like it, but I think we need to give it a chance....we will catch on.  I really love the Beta Activity Feed way better!!!!!

I'm feeling a little lost, lol. I love purple, but for some reason these shades are bothering me too. Otherwise I will adjust.

Oh, and how do you see all the smilies? I couldn't even close it without choosing one. I'm too young to be freaked out by change!! lol

If you go into the top right corner to your name, you can click it and it will pull up your User CP.  There is also a list of your threads in your user cp.  Also, up near the top, there is a link called "subscriptions" that you can click for your threads. smile.gif

 

I'm not a mod or anything, but I just figured that part out myself and thought I'd share. orngbiggrin.gif

Have the rules for viewing PasP and TAO changed?  I can no longer see either forum.

I really hope other color choices will become available.  The old tan was great!  All this white is hard on the eyes, and the purple and green combo is just so darn ugly!

Just in case some of you can't see your name in the top right corner, adblock is blocking those images, I had to adjust adblock to allow them! Now I can see my user cp.

This exactly!!!! I have eye problems and can't do bright or white backgrounds online.

 

How do you get the purple and green?

Appears that you have use the smile button to find smileys. However, once it's in place, you can highlight it and insert a hyperlink with the hyperlink button.

iphone (ipod): Am I missing something? It said upthread that the forum would look *better* on an iphone, but for me it is displaying just as a regular webpage - thus too small to navigate well.

Also, when I try to insert a smilie it brings up a window that is way bigger than my screen that I cannot scroll. The only way to get out of it is to choose a smilie from those that I can see. (I'm using safari on a mac)

OK, so I figured out how to change my signature.

 

New problems:

  1. Can't see all of the smilies- in Mozilla (my preferred browser) or Internet Explorer.
  2. Can't see my subscribed forums- not sure where to look.
  3. All of the people I had blocked are now UNblocked. :-(

That's just the overall theme of the site.  You don't see so much of those colors on this page, thank goodness, but they're there at the top and bottom.  (I'm sure someone must have done some research and found that those colors went over well with a lot of people, but I hate purple, I hate that shade of green, and I think purple and green look terrible in combination.)

I came to this thread to ask about the same problems. I'm using Mozilla. To add on to the smiley problem, smilies entered manually show up when posted, but not in preview. Hard to see if I've entered it right without posting and then editing over and over.

 

In addition, I don't see a way to search for members or see when a member was last online. I would also like to echo that the background color isn't just an aesthetic preference. My head hurts from the bright new color scheme.

How do I change my avatar from a photo from my album to an avatar ready available from the new forum (like the trees, peace signs, etc)?

 

I too can't navigate or see all of the smilies. 

 

I agree that the new colors are hard on the eyes and seem too sterile.... I'm kinda' missing the old format. greensad.gif

So, i just discovered a really annoying problem. I went into my CP to try to turn off ads since i'm browsing on my iPod. I tried to save without putting in all the personal info it asks for and it popped up an error window off the screen to the right. I tried scrolling over to it to hit "ok", but each time i scrolled the pg to the right, the screen refreshes and the error box moves offscreen again. I couldnt figure out a way to dismiss it. I had to hit the back button to get out of the infinite loop.

Oh, and the smilies seem to have disappeared out of my sig.

How do you change your signature?  I found how to get into my accout, but can't find where to change my sig?

 

Also, I thought subscribing members where getting different badges under our name since the pink usernames went away?  But mine just says Senior Member?

When I view new posts, and go to the next page, it repeats posts from the prior page.  It seems like maybe it is refreshing the search each time I go to the next page, and showing me, for example, page 7 from a refreshed "new posts" search....???

 

It makes it very difficult to scroll through and read new posts, since each page is half-full of repeats from the prior page.

 

thanks!

Everyone beat me to the smiley thing.  I'll just go ahead and get in line on that one.  orngtongue.gif

 

Preferences: When I click "Preferences" a progress bar pops up like it's going to load a page and then disappears without doing so.  I am using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.12 and have all blocking add-ons (NoScript, AdBlock, FlashBlock) disabled.  I'd just like to have a few more messages per page in a thread, really.

 

I admin some regional bulletin boards and that's a hassle sometimes.  This place is ... what ... 94th on Big Boards?  Thanks for giving the time to take care of this place.

Here is a link to the Community Profile tutorial. http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/community-profile-tutorial I think if you entered the link of your photo it should work.
