Ouch! Is this a hideous forum or what? I hope there is a way to tweak layout/skins whatever.

  • And another thing...
    Why dose cutting an pasting text into the post edit box show it with all the colour and style of the place it was copied from. BUT in the  finally displayed text on the thread the formatting is gone.
  • Think of it like interrupts... :smile:

    At least you eventually return from an interrupt ....



    Trying to stay positive here. I do very much appreciate the ability to write my comments at the source level. I can hit the "quote" button on someone's post and then switch to source view and quickly learn the forum's new syntax. I like :)And also, quote collapsing is pretty cool.

  • And another thing. People are talking about "votes" here. I see "Flag", up arrow, 0 down arrow. They are all zero!


    Flag is to report post to a moderatorup arrow is a +1down arrow is a =1

  • I am NOT a fan of this new forum. It looks like the support forum for "My Little Pony Online". I would vote for going back to the previous forum! ;)

    I can use <pre> tag for source code. that's neat. Does this new software have syntax highlighting?

    Looks like I need to manually edit source code to un-block the stuck-in-comment-trap...
    - and this in 2015 !!
    No wait, now preview shows quote, but post does not...

  • Too bad the support forum is gone, general discussion is going to be a mess of requests and bugs.
    There really needs to be an official thread. I would hate to come in to this tomorrow lol...

    My message has raised concerns from Parallax.  My criticism is being
    seen as an attack on the company and not as constructive, so I'm
    publically retracting the entire message in addition to all of my recent
    posts.   I may also consider resigning from the forums completely, but
    I'm not a fan of "heat of the moment decisions", so I'll leave things
    alone for now.

    This is a forum Upgrade???     Really??

    Nope, nothing but forum Sw used :)
    Preview is certainly NOT always the same as the eventual posting rendering. (WYSINWYG)  x_x
  • OBC,
    Upgrade? This is a train wreck.  
  • Heater, right under your first post, there is this:

    Click on date added....unless you want to drive yourself crazy(er) then leave it on votes.

    All of the forum links from google are now broken....

    Bah, no one would ever want to actually search for something that was answered in the forums....

    I'm sure Parallax will simply think that we just don't like "change" and are being cranky about it...

    And another thing....
    All incoming links on google, as OBC, says but possibly even worse form any blog post or whatever on any website are now broken.
    Google's links will probably get fixed by the bot over time, the rest of the links in the world won't.
    Thanks guys. 
      
  • Are you kidding me?   My messages just moved from their order.. 

    Ok, so I took a deep breath and thought I'd try to use this "forum" to read a recent message in the Propeller section.  Naturally it referenced two other earlier posts from the old software and now isn't useful information.

    I give up..

  • It looks like all the old links are 301 permanent redirects to root:

    Yeah, I think I've pretty much summed it up in my last post..

    Good Luck Parallax.   I'll check back in a day or two.
