Is there a way to force a certain default activity configuration, e.g., forums and reviews on; profiles off ?

is there a way to increase the default number of 'threads' displayed in that view?

Thanks!

I'm afraid the Activity Stream doesn't support these settings right now, sorry.

Posted these before in the 'Transparent Moderation' thread:

 

Couple of things that would be nice to have adressed:

Getting a bunch of HTML when quoting. (Think I've solved this by setting the 'Preferred Editor Type' to 'Rich Text' in my profile setting - why isn't this the default?)
Not being able to use 'Crtl+i', 'Crtl+b', etc when posting. (Seems to work now - due to the Rich Text editor?)
Not getting e-mail notifications from subscribed threads. (Have received a couple of e-mails now, but not from a lot of my recently updated, subscribed threads.)
Not going to first unread when trying to.
The ads on the right hand side take up way too much real estate, epecially when not on a wide screen display.
Some smileyes in older post have been replaced with obnoxious smiley giffs.
Would be nice if the sigs could be moved down to the bottom of the post.

I know it's purely aesthetic, but the white around the non square avatars is a step back.
Is there any way of seeing if you're subscribed to a thread without going into the 'Subscriptions' folder? (Like the old √ sign next to the thread title.)
Could you please make the font 'non specified'? Or is there a way to change it here?

Hey,
The site is very very slow for me. Is there anyway to fix this? Do I need to use a certain OS?

all the new bells and whistles and no hybrid mode sheesh. Is there any format that allow me to see all the posts rather than having to scroll through every page?

Maybe i'm just an idiot and i'm overlooking something, but, where exactly are the "WTB" threads supposed to go?

I'm surprised it worked for you at all. When I was experimenting with hybrid, large threads like transmod and waywrn would make the php interpreter run out of memory.

It's also going really slow for me. When I click on "View First Unread" it takes like 5 minutes to load.

We actually set the default editor to be the BB editor, because the thing most people complained about in the sandbox was that they could not use the [img]tags. We should have made clear that you could change your editor. Mea Culpa.

you used to be able to right click on any link (quote, view single post....) and open it in another window inorder to copy and paste quotes from one thread to another or for sigs and pm'ing. this seems to not work anymore? am i doing something wrong or is that not compatible with the new platform?

btw after attacking this thing all day ive pretty much gotten used to it. its very nice. well done all.

The Rich Text Editor is a piece of 3rd party software that some users like but many have found it to cause errors. SF users were defaulted to the BbCode editor, as it is similar to what was on the old platform and causes fewer problems.

There's been some delay in email notifications going out, but that will resolve in the next 24-48 hours.

The forum lists will take you to the last post in a thread. Our Platform doesn't record the last unread post.

The only other place you can adjust your subscriptions is from the Activity Stream on the homepage- if you are subscribed to a thread you will see a rollover notification of this when you mouse over various threads. Clicking the "X" here should unsubscribe you.

As for the rest of your comments, these are essentially how our platform works, and there are no user-settable adjustments to be made, sorry.

I switched computers. The site is a little faster, however none of the adds/featured sponsors are visible. Did I somehow disable them?confused.gif

If you can follow the steps in this thread, I might be able to help you with performance issues.

Did you break my forum?

Anyway, re. fonts, colors, etc... We will be reviewing these. I personally like the brighter settings and the fonts, but J has some issues. Between us and the developers, we'll figure out over the next few weeks what exactly the forum will look like.

Cheers,

Fok.

Using tapatalk on my iPad and iPhone, several forums will not load. FS forum is fine, but when trying to access Men's Clothing sub forum, tapatalk says "there are no posts in this forum."

Also (this might be due to user error on posters part or just people getting used to the new system) many FS threads have no pictures. Again only on tapatalk.
