Please bring them here so I can look into them for us all
Is it possible when going to new posts to view them all on 1 page? Or at least expand it to 50 or 100 threads per page?
I'm guessing this has nothing to do with undies.
sure, but there are problems with that, and we have run into it before,
it causes slow loading times for a page,
I already increased it from 20 to 40,
After that, I would need a vote to see how many want to go higher, otherwise it may affect a lot of persons
Any chance of one of those floating "to the top" buttons that many sites have?
p.s. Good to see the bear tracks back....
you can also just hit the home or page up button on your keyboard,
Home takes you to the top, and page up takes you up the page a bit
I will go looking for a 'Top' add on for the footer area
I'm aware of those other options, but my living room keyboard needs a multi-key combination to "page up" and no "home" key.
I have found the floating "up" button useful on other websites, same action as a "home" key.
yep, was wondering about that, also for mobile users, there won't be a 'home' option
Look at the footer bar, it is already there,
Silly me, didn't see it,
Yep, it was on the old forum too if I remember correctly. Most forums have that.
when I looked into the floating 'to the top buttons', it seemed as they were useful 'cause they were 2 way,
they also speed up scrolling down............
don't know how many persons would want something like that?
I only really want to load what we need, as that was one of the problems with vb, is that over time it had lead feet from so much code.
Just an odd anomaly. On the JB ticker the mobile says $14.34 while the laptop says $14.40.
I would place the order from your mobile then!
fixed the log in screen so it isn't so dark/dark
Are meta tags stripped from the images uploaded
Hey up guys,
I have been adding tags for all the articles I put up to help the computers crawl over the place, and to help with search later on.
It would be a big help if you also added tags as you put up content,
Should be a box at the bottom of the thread create or reply box, where I just use random words like gold, silver, goldismoney2.com, Fed, etc.
those tags would only be coming from formats not accepted by this software,
for instance, bmp files, I have to convert to jpeg to get them to take
anything older than the conversion may still show old pic formats in that way,
When copying & pasting an article paragraph, we used to be able to highlight coloring it by clicking on a goober at the tool bar at the top of the posting area.
Am I missing it here?
Hey guys....................I keep getting logged off and then having to sign in each time I want to post something or when I go into a different forum. What's up with that?
Go here and post #9
Not having the issue at all,
Please try to use the new link as your bookmark, and you may have to clear your cache also,
Don't forget to check the remind me box, or keep me signed in
It's tough on us old farts learning new tricks.
I would like to see the up/down arrows as illustrated below. The example is from a XenForo powered forum. the up/down arrows are at the bottom right corner of every screen and can take you to the top or bottom of the page immediately.
Yep, I hear ya and was looking at that,
It is a addon that a person can ad to the base forum package, and it is put out by a 3rd party,
Which means it isn't supported, nor updated
That is the problem with stuff like that, as in the future it can result in issues. Developers of that stuff come and go with the wind.
In other words, I haven't decided as of yet re that.
Added new sub-forum to discuss points of interest on the World Map
Whether or not a museum is worth a darn, etc.
Added "To The Top" Button where you tap that and it scrolls up the page,
speed is based on how long the page is
There is a full size version setup for normal computers, whereas there is a 'mini' version setup for phone type devices.
The arrows are now working to go up or down on a page
I just tried to upload a picture that I have posted in the past and the file was too large.
see if you can get me the size of it, then I will check the settings
gringott and updated were totally right IMO,
added that 'Up' 'Down' button and am using it all the darn time
I was extremely happy and surprised to see the up / down arrows when I came on this morning. I immediately came here to say "thanks". Got twice what I requested, great stuff. Thanks to you, Scorpio!
under promise and try to over deliver,
That is the GIM way
When we do this stuff, we want to use proper add ons, so that when we go to update, all is not lost, and have to reinvent all over again,
Which is what would happen if we did not use stuff that is made for the system or comes with the system.
So just trying to be cautious that we are not granted a big surprise somewhere down the road.
I used to run a Cnet BBS years ago, every update seemed to break all the add-ins. Pain in the posterior. You are doing the correct thing Scorp.
I'm liking the right side layout! Very nice!
Thanks Ish, another group of smilies for your use:
