@Sihaya

Did that work?

Otherwise you can type the user name and then highlight it and click the speaker icon on the post tools, and it will make it happen.

I think you have to have the user name exact to get it to work.

@adinal It worked when you did it AND when I did it here but when I do it in my DDC it just shows up as normal text. This is what results when I use the speaker button: adinal

It told me you mentioned me! The first one worked. It doesn't pop up a link like it used to. So, keep trying with the @username . I got an email notification that you did it.

HAHA! you went in and edited. So the issue is that the @ doesn't work in DDCs?

Exactly.

There is also no quote or multi-quote option in the DDCs (without manually copying and pasting the text and using quote tags - which isn't the same thing as it doesn't link back to the original post and you have to be pretty familiar with how tags work to even include the quoted user's name).

I belong to the June DDC, so not being able to communicate quickly and easily is a huge disappointment this close to all of us having our babies.

Sorry, @cynthia mosher , I didn't see your posts before a poster (another feature I miss - being notified while I typed of additional posts to a thread).

I am typing or copying/pasting the screenname into the text box, highlighting, then pushing the speaker button. It just gives me an @ before the name and a ; after it.

Testing: @Sihaya

Okay, it's working for me now in the Forums. Will have to go test it in my DDC.

The new DDC formatting is complete:

Check it out, this should be much more user friendly.

It looks the same? Unless my computer is insisting on loading a cached version or something?

Earlier today it was showing the groups listing, you should be seeing a page that looks like it did before the conversion.

Oh.. that. that page isn't really relevant anyway. I clicked through to a DDC to the actual area you post, and its pretty cringeworthy.

I used the mobile site yesterday and it left something to be desired, to say the least.

Today I have been using the desktop version and it is annoying! Have we always been limited to 1000 characters? And 30 seconds between posts? It made the spotlight thread very cumbersome to reply to...

I am all for upgrades and I know that growing pains are inevitable, but I hope things improve!

The 1000 limit should now be fixed, both on posts and in social groups. The 30 second limit is actually an anti-spam measure, and I've lowered it to 10 seconds, please report if you feel it's still too long and we'll shorten it again.

We're trying.. we appreciate everyone giving such verbose feedback. Goal here is to make this place great for everyone and easy to use. We sat with our creative team today to show them your mobile feedback (mostly surrounding the editor, uploads, etc) and we are going to try and see what we can do to get it fixed up.

A lot of the thanks though goes to your forum staff, the mods and admins here have been fantastic, helping us test before and during the conversion, so thank you!!

Hello lovely Verticalscope amazing fixers! My PM box was full. I tried to delete all the messages, and it said that now all my messages were stored, but that my PM box was still full.
A. What does it mean that my messages are stored, not deleted,
B. How do I empty my PM box so I can receive new PMs?

Thank you!

When the conversion was done, your PM's were migrated over from the old Huddler platform. I've lifted it to 2000 from 1000 now, did that resolve your issue?

She was a moderator for many years and while on Huddler, which means she has something closer to my amount of PMs..like 10s of thousands.

The little > button next to the last poster doesn't work the way it did on the old platform. You used to be able to go straight to the first newest post from the last one that you read, so you could follow the conversation, but now it just takes you straight to the very last post in the thread, so you have to scroll back and figure out what to read in order. Can this be fixed?

Subscribed forums are still there when you click on USER CP in the top right side of the desktop version. I thought they were gone.

So they have been imported they just don't show with thread subscriptions.

Oh - and in our subscriptions list, will it be able to show us which section each of our posts is in? I used to hop around in my "regular" forums that way, and that was a nice feature.

Life with a toddler - pacifier
Toddler nutrition - baby bottle

The icons beside these two on the forum view aren't really representative of the mindset here. You might want to put changing them down as a very low priority.

Maybe use something like an apple for nutrition, and a running child for toddler?
