    Default Official New Forum Software Bug and Suggestions Tracker

    The hard work is done. Now comes the fun part!

    Post up any issues you have with the new forum, as well as suggestions, and we'll start tackling them one by one. Looking forward to hearing from everyone. Even speedog.

    To-do List:

    • AS DESIGNED - Quick Reply box not necessary, breaks several workflows.
    • IMPLEMENTED - @ mention and autofill system.
    • ONGOING - various colors and spacing tweaks for legibility.
    • FIXED - view users posts, right side is cut off.
    • Dark Theme
    • new thread list on blog page
    • page numbers in search results/forum view


    Issues with Workarounds:

    • ONGOING - Font size too large on bigger monitors. Workaround: Use browser zoom to adjust.
    • In search results view, link to latest post too small. Workaround: Use the green arrow a couple columns down.

    I'll close the previous upgrade threads so everything new is kept in a single thread.

    For reference:

    Recent threads list on the home page isn't working. Just says there's a dead link where the list used to be.

    Thread index is rebuilding. It'll take about a day or 2 before it's completed and search working.

    Also, when you click "what's new?" for your unread posts but there is nothing there. When you click the link for posts in the last 24hrs it gives the "vBulletin Message
    This forum requires that you wait 5 seconds between searches. Please try again in 3 seconds." error

    Yea I did, but it should still pull all threads from last 24hrs. In case I wanted to go back and check something. All the other forums I visit when they are cleared I can still pull the last 24hrs

    You can. We just limit searches every 5s. If you waited a little longer, it should pull up.

    I'll put that on the todo list to revisit (or remove limit just for that particular search).

    the only thing that i don't really like is that in the "similar threads" section it doesn't show a date posted; you click on something similar and it's from 10 years ago lol, and unfortunately not relevant to the thread

    This is something that is on the to-do list to improve.

    Are you able to remove the link to the forum next to the green arrow for last post like on the old forums? I find my fat fingers still hit that cell instead of the button. Or just remove that whole column?

    This will be relocated eventually, couldn't figure out a good layout during the design process so it was pushed to the post-upgrade to-do list.

    Text inside quotes is way to light and difficult to read
