It's all looking really good John, glad I don't have to do all the work on the part of the iceberg that can't be seen! Particularly like being able to embed Youtube videos like above.

Funnily enough though, when I first saw the upgrade my initial thought was "Change. I don't like change". Then I actually started to navigate round and within minutes it was "this change lark is really good" - now if only I can apply that approach to these 8 speed STis you mention above......


Steady now big guy.


Anyhow back to the other post related things people have mentioned.

As far as I can tell everything is setup and running as excpected - the behaviour people are noticing especially with the 'view new posts' link is as expected. It is showing posts since the start of your last visit. Pretty sure this behaviour is different to the last version. Need to dog further.

Hi

I've problem with searching results - when I want to see all posts by me (to see if someone answer to my posts after my last visit) I don't see which threads are having new posts, which not

I old forum there were list of threads and I have seen which of them are marked as threads with new posts, now it is just list of my posts, without information about new posts in thread


How are you finding your old posts? Search is pretty hosed currently so if you go via there it'll do who knows what.

If you click 'View your posts' this seems to be working ok as far as I can tell. Threads are listed in reverse time order, threads with new and unread posts are shown with the animated folder icon. If you don't see this suggest you clear cache and cookies and restart your browser.

Use the Google search (top right), it still works.

Having trouble finding older posts as well....

Tried to find audi-allroad his Klein Attitude Gator 21".

I used the following term: klein attitude gator
"author": left blank
"search in forums": none selected
"search sub forums" yes
"search within": topic titles only
"sort result by": post time / descending
"display results as": topics only
"limit results ..": all results
"return first": all available

This did not find it!
Any option with "klein attitude gator" did not find Florians bike?!?!

Of course I mean this thread:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=237852
(I did find this using the google search....)

please help!

I must say that response to posts by email is sooo much slower than the old system, but on the whole, what was the old system like?

Noticed that as well - as in the email message that you get sent if you're watching (subscribed to) a thread. e.g. last post in a thread 22:09, email arrived at 23:33. Not a biggy, more an observation.

Now you can access only a sub-part of the forum on its own eg 97 and before I think this will lead to more people putting post 98 stuff in the retro section.
I just looked at the retro forum on its own and I don't think there is any mention of it being 97 and before. Maybe the forum headings can have "97 and before" and "98 onwards" after them to avoid more work for the mods and less confusion for newcomers.

Hope you understand what I'm saying there!

"Search" is still utter cack! Everything else seems to work fine, but I'd happily swap it all back to the old, just to be able find stuff!
It couldn't find a post I made yesterday. Search again, and it could..
Totally random and not very trustworthy.
