New forum layout
« on: February 16, 2014, 10:07:38 AM »
Sorry to see the "latest posts list", that used to be on the front page, go. I can understand if it had to go because of forum speed or something, but I think it was a very convenient way to check for replies and overall topic traffic, much easier than "View the most recent posts on the forum" link, which lists the posts in full.

I usually just use the "Show unread posts since last visit." button at the top, where it says "Hello %name%".

But it resets if you leave the page, so you can't rely on it when you are leaving/returning a lot and want a recent post of the day kind of list.

Hi,

 I use this every day, that works.

 always use the "show unread post since last visit".

Once this list is empty, click on "Click here to try all unread topic", it's in the page, not in the menu.

 This is the way for me to make trace back posts I did had time to read during the day.

bye,

 Jean

I'm working with our host to improve forum performance so you might see some changes as we try stuff out. Sorry for any inconvenience, but hopefully you should see some improvements too!

I'm also planning a move to a new server since I don't think the tweaks we're making now will be enough as the forum grows...

Cool :)

It does behave better now tho, the search is much more reactive as well already.

bye,

Was hoping for a "wider" forum here
I'm always sad when posting/linking media here because of the forum
is only 50% wide.

Got those two huge gray bars on the side (spacewaste)
